    November 2018 Update:
    • We finished production and starts assembly.
    • We accept pre-orders on December 2018 on our new web.
    • During last year, we made some modifications for easily assembly and better appearance.
    We redesigned case mainframe. Now top aluminum part is removable for easily assembling

    AC Socket was moved deeper inward the case for better appearance

    Grade A aluminum surface finishing and glossy chamfer with diamond tooling (not easily take a good photo of it...)

    All the parts of the case is custom designed, except AC cord extender, USB3.0 cable and PCI-e riser

    End of the Update

    Main concept

    • Emphasis on appearance and grade A surface finishing
    • Materials: Aluminum body + 304SS frame
    • Production technologies: Aluminum extrusion and high precision CNC milling
    • Designed specially for Mini-ITX components
    • Small size
    Cooling

    To maximize air passage, we apply lamella design. This design provides up to 50% more air pass area, than regular holes, and works from bottom to top without "air pockets".

    Well this is a bit of a surprise, came out of nowhere. I had been seriously thinking about Fire's MI-6 but this case gives me pause. Really nice design.

    Definitely pushing it in terms of GPU size though- I think that an MSI Aero 1070 will fit, but it's close. Certainly nothing in the 1080 range, even the Zotac minis.

    Gigabyte is supposed to be working on a GTX 1080 that is the same size as their GTX 1070 ITX (so it will fit in their eGPU chassis)...?

    From this article on SFFN...

    "When asked if the GTX 1080 would fit, we were told something to the effect that it will soon and that they’re working on it. Make of that what you will."

    The name of this thing just kills me. I think (well, at least I hope) that it wasn't done intentionally and DNK is an acronym that means something to you, but... I can't help but see it as "Dank Prime" every single time I read it.

    Fins in 1.2mm thickness, and 8 mm deep. And there is 4 thick bars, for shape supporting. On the top, middle and bottom of the part.

    I think, must be an alternative cheap, long time but safe shipping option. Design looks great.
