Update 2019-04-09 : Slow, but not forgotten. Making prototypes using aluminum. Once designed finalized, will make POM version.

A lot of you guys are familiar with the Swiftech Apogee Drive ii, but it's too tall (~66mm with fittings on one side, ~62mm on the other side) for a lot of the builds.

I have been working with a small shop to get a low profile (~48mm) CPU Block + DDC Pump + Res (maybe) combo that will work for the A4, C4, Ghost S1, M1, Mach One and Skyreach 4 Mini.

Do you plan to sell these and if so when, and would you offer a 2011-3 Narrow ILM? I have an Asrock x99e-itx/ac motherboard. I was initially also looking at the Apogee Drive II but it lacked a narrow ILM bracket and I didn't that time to make my own.

Furthermore, due to space constraints I couldn't afford to give up space for a reservoir. If your solution offered a pump/block + res combo that is space efficient, you'd definitely have a much larger market opportunity IMO. I for sure would be the first to purchase one. Cheers.

9900k + 2080 Ti + watercoold + itx mini case = awesome

I tried to get some swiftech? mini reservoir for 8x8 in europe. There is no way for a micro watercooling system (except aio cooler + pump).

This is a pretty sweet idea. I know they are just renderings, but what would be your plan for that type of lighting? Using translucent plastic with discrete LEDs, or some other method?

I'm thinking translucent POM or injection molded Polycarbonate, discrete LEDs.

Hey, I just wanted to say I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this become reality, as there is definitely a market for this. Has there been any update or did this get shelved?
