Dondan, any chance of fitting something like MSI 390 8G in there. I saw on the website that VGA is 5mm (backplate) + 40mm (card).
Is there a chance to fit 5mm+46mm card? (what are the tolerances?)
Anyone knows if this cooler from CoolChip Technologies is going to come out?

Im not sure but i have a feeling that they left it only as a prototype and i think ive read somewhere that now coolermaster have the rights to it.
@dondan: what is the price and when will it be selling?
dondan - First post said:How much will it cost?
Around $200-230 + shipping + tax (depending on where you are located)
So I will be only able to sell the case in Germany for Europe. For this reason I try to get a big web shop that is able to sell in every European country. The web shop could get a better price, because they must take a high number of cases. So the price will be nearly the same. The cases will be available in the web shop in the same time the other cases ships to costumers out of Europe.
These electronic waste rules are interesting you're not selling any electronics, just something to put them in... You could put computer components in a cardboard box, does that need to be regulated for electronic waste?
As for water cooling, I've been thinking about it and I believe the only way to do it would be to have a mini-ITX sized GPU (like the R9 Nano or GTX 970 mini) and then directly behind the PSU you could place a 25mm thick 120mm rad + slim fan. You then could probably cram the pump and res below the rad and GPU along the bottom of the case.
I'm ignorant and also afraid it's already been answered upthread, but how does (did) then NCASE handle this strict electronic waste rules in Europe and registration in each country as they sell M1 to customers in Europe as well?
IIRC Ncase got around it by being based in the USA.
WEEE seems to be implemented differently in different EU countries. In the UK, it is sufficient to register with a WEEE DTS (e.g.), who then handle all WEEE responsibilities in your place.
The problem for Dan is that every country has their own specific implementation of WEEE, which only applies within that country. Which means that if he wants to produce in Germany and ship to the UK, he must be registered for WEEE compliance in the UK. Similarly for every other country to ship to. This is unlike sales tax which is harmonised across the EU.
Technically, everyone selling or reselling in the EU needs to do this registration for cross-border shipping. It doesn't seem to be a well-known, even moreso on the consumer side (I had no idea until recently that a reseller or producer are required to provide me a disposal method for electronic waste).
Sorry, I should've been more clear. I would like to put a 120mm/140mm radiator in place of the PSU. What's the widest radiator I can use before hitting the motherboard?
Does that make sense?
Is this case made for radiators?
