November 2018 Update:
  • We finished production and starts assembly.

Main concept

  • Emphasis on appearance and grade A surface finishing
  • Materials: Aluminum body + 304SS frame
  • Production technologies: Aluminum extrusion and high precision CNC milling

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.

How thick are the side panels (where the vents are located)?
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.
