The Raijintek Thetis is a larger version of the Metis, allowing you to use a full-size ATX board, PSU, a fairly long GPU, and even a 240 mm radiator. While all that may not sound interesting on paper, considering the compact size of the Thetis, we are eager to take a look.

I will highlight I feel Raijintek should have opted for slightly more width, placing dual 140mm fans on the bottom and ceiling, which would have created an excellent stacked cooling layout.

Combine that with a change to only supporting an SFX PSU (that gives you 800w which should be more than plenty) and placing SSD's mounts behind the motherboard tray and I think this case would have been rather excellent, rather than interesting but not quite there.

I don't get the glas pannel for the back. What am I going to look at there? The cable mess is what I'm trying to hide, remember?

Instead, they should have opted for a more traditional design with only the left side pannel being glass (watching from the front) and the right side pannel should have intake vents for front fans that are entirely missing here. Since the top should be outtake, this case will never have positive pressure. There is literally not a single intake fan in this whole case! Just imagine the dust.

Raijintek is very innovative but they don't think things through. I doubt they even look at feedback. I have to say I like Jonsbo way better, even thought they aren't perfect either.

Yea did I miss it.... that Integra M PSU (the picture says 550W) "are only 140mm long, which accommodates the smallest ATX-compatible computer cases on the market." So would a standard ATX PSU actually work, but then you can't use a card longer than the M-ATX/ATX 9.6 in. (244 mm) mobo width dimensions? Then it seem restrictive to has the PSU fan blowing out the bottom and then the front where I get to live in such heat...

While I won't ever touch a case with front top-mounted I/O.

It as other above indicated it's has design ills many ways!

Now, just sell me this in Red (like Lian Li used to do)

What do you reckon is the max length for PSU for not to block long GPUs?

When I still had my Thetis, I would gauge that 160mm is probably the largest you would want to go whilst keeping full compatibility.
