Why is it that we are so technically inclined that we can build complex ITX systems but we can't resize our images?

Not enough ventilation, but definitely impressive how small it is for ATX.

The AIO rad is just sitting atop the PSU, right? not secured?

oddly enough the CPU temp never rises over ~60c at full load
im pressuring my brother to put ventilation holes and screw in the radiator to the panel
right now it just sitting over the PSU


980Ti coming soon

2large4me. At least the W2.

I'd like to oppose that claim.

The RM1 is pretty impressive with just 22L. I like that. But yeah, Jonsbo/Rosewill/Cooltek cases have notoriously bad ventilation and this case seems to be no exception.

sorry for not being clear

i meant is that cooltek isnt distributing it yet
the odd thing is that ventilation issues could be easily remedied but feels like they ignored it, they even advertise the use of gaming GPUs in that case :confused:

this just needs a bit of modding to for it to be perfect

Dear Jonsbo, please get rid of the ugly 5.25" slot on the front :-(

At 21.5L it's close enough. Considering we have a Phanteks Evolv ITX thread on the first page here and that's a 34L case, which is more qualified to be in the SFF section?

SFF should be 8-19L, IDC definition

21.5L is close, but still NOT sff

the fact that there is another thread in the wrong forum does not justify posting more thread that does not belong to this forum

Nothing in ATX format comes anywhere close to 20L. This, at 21.5L, is of relevance and note to the SFF community. theGryphon is working on something but isn't near production as of yet. Can you provide us with an ATX case that is 19L? Do you speak for the entirety of the community and those looking for the smallest ATX case possible?

The general case subforum is all but dead, and no one there would have interest in such a small ATX based case anyway, meaning this thread would be completely ignored. While I appreciate the idea that cases under 19L and under should only be posted here, this is actually one exception that makes absolute sense.

Oh stop with the BS, for ATX this is SFF. This is not the "Sub 19L Systems" forum.

Technically uSFF<8L<=SFF<20L, so 19.99999L.

If it really, really bothers you, you can try to convince a mod to remove it, but I personally think we should take SFF in a more relaxed sense. We often see cases that are too large to really be SFF, but of all the offenders this is the one I'd let slip because it fits such a large board inside.

Also, this is the only subforum where people care about size. If you post this case anywhere else, people will just ask you where they can put their five 240mm rads and why there's no space for 15 3.5" HDDs. I'm exaggerating, of course.

Dear Jonsbo, please get rid of the ugly 5.25" slot on the front :-(

Yeah, why would they have that? A mount for a slot-in slimline drive would have sufficed, and they know how to do those.

God i love this forum :)

It's the BEST! :D

Wow, I can't believe people will turn away new content from this forum when we only have five threads that perpetually get bumped. This is the perfect case to get people's feet wet in the sff arena.

The smallest ATX chassis ever, I believe, was the GTR Tech GT3 in 2007 being 15.6" x 4.25" x 12.5" so 13.6 litres. It had a double slot riser. I used that case to put a powerful desktop in a carry on suitcase. Lovely :)

By 2010, the chassis supported 10.1" video cards, the email I found mentioned Radeon HD 5850, 4890 and 4870.

Yeah that's a good argument. If you can make a case where people don't have to switch components, that's a huge selling point.

Oh dear god that is amazing. I mean the case looks atrocious, but that space utilisation is something to behold. Image gallery for anyone interested

I remember that case. It's a neat layout, though the TFX PSU would be a major limitation these days.

Huh, I first thought it was using SFX, but after seeing that it's just 108mm high, that wouldn't fit :D

Well there are some retail TFX PSUsavailable, but none of them seems to be stronger than 300W. Would be enough for a 970, though.

Thanks for sharing that case chx, that is an impressive use of space - it is interesting that something so ambitious was tried as far back as 2007. Despite the challenges it seems getting a functional ATX rig at under 20L is a very real possibility.

Which would effectively limit this forum to the discussion of approximately a dozen cases...

Those that matter (mods) don't mind.

Did your brother ever get around attaching the radiator inside the case? I'm also thinking about buying this case when it becomes available here, since it's the smallest case I know that will take my ATX motherboard (Z68 with i5 2500K). However I am worried about heat dissipation. Is it possible to tie the 240mm radiator on the right side with zip ties using the cutouts in the back of the case?
