DeepCool, which is on a roll with cases such as the Tristellar, unveiled a slew of unique new case designs at Computex; beginning with the GamerStorm Nephrite. This slim, console-sized case, which measures 330 mm x 100 mm x 428 mm (DxWxH), features a two-compartment design, much like the ones we see in cases such as the RVZ02 by SilverStone, except for its asymmetric design, and its top (add-on card) compartment, which is transparent on three sides, letting you flaunt your high-end graphics card. So now, when you say your machine runs a GTX Titan X, or a Fury, you'll mean it.

The rest of the case is made of steel, with carbon fiber pattern cladding, cutouts at the right spots, and an interesting vent pattern. The motherboard tray seats a standard-height mini-ITX motherboard, with room for CPU coolers as tall as 120 mm, with a 120 mm fan mount right over it. You should have just enough room to stack an AIO liquid cooler block, with a 35 mm-thick radiator and one 25 mm-thick 120 mm spinner right over it. The case offers room for an SFX power supply. Now, if only NVIDIA bundled a $2 back-plate with its GTX Titan X, like it did with the GTX 980.

I kinda like this idea.
Although, I would remove the plastic covering and let that card breathe.
Prob get some close to room temps idle.

It is easier to create a similar box out of modders mesh for graphics card to replace that plastic cover. it will help in breathing and keep insects and other stuff from blocking the fan.

To think DeepCool started as ultra budget brand, now it caught up with Premium and interesting stuff. I just wish their marketing team was better.

Looks like you're restircted to blower coolers which is a bit disappointing. Also noise. Sure it will run cooler by default and thus be more silent than usual, but is also so exposed that you basically negate all that.

Reverse image search gives me these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814106057

Matrox C680 video cards. Under the heatsink is an AMD chip with a 2GB GDDR5 framebuffer and 6x Mini DisplayPort 1.2 outputs. Not actually all that impressive and I'm not sure why you would want two of them to "show off" in this tiny case unless you needed 12x 4K screens powered by an mITX system. A case like this seems to be better suited for the K|NGP|N cards, Lightning cards, Matrix cards, and other monster LED bling bling GPUs that actually look impressive in a case like this. I think you would get laughed at if you had two of those Matrox cards in this case.

Not to mention that you can't even plug in two of them because mITX only has a single PCIe slot.

Looks like it's fitting a TFX PSU. I can see it's definitely bigger than Flex ATX or 1U PSU. At least TFX is easier to find I think.

Some very innovative thinking right there. It's obvious that the ATX case needs a renaissance, it's pretty long in the tooth...
