mini-ITX case that will accomodate WC TITAN?

Perhaps this is a pipe dream, but does anyone have an idea what mini-ITX case would have enough room to accommodate the titan + water cooling (GPU+CPU)?

Perhaps the BitFenix Prodigy?

The lastest Caselabs S3 "Mercury"? Not exactly small. Or a custom case.

hmmm, yeah I was hoping for something a) available in the next few weeks and b) actually small form factor.

If I can't find something it's not the end of the world.

I'd expect both the Sugo SG08 and the Fortress FT03 Mini to be good with a Titan in them. Watercooling though you'd probably be best with a Prodigy. The Sugo SG09 seems like it would do it with water cooling, but it's a mATX, not mini-ITX.

We have something in the pipeline. About 8 Litres, with integrated W/C (comes with the case) for CPU and GPU.

Yep. If you looking for something with the size Prodigy, the Caselabs Mercury case will be much better.
It's being released on Monday.

If you want something smaller, the Fractal Node 304 is an option.
The Node 304 can fit a 12.2" card, and the Titan is 10.5". But no watercooling.

The Caselabs Mercury is the best option for flexibility.

Who's "we"?

We being a small startup, specializing in SFF.

Our second prototype is on the way, and should it hold up to our standards will be the production model.

Its quite unique.

A 180mm liquid cooled itx case is the first of our lineup, with a MATX case to follow. Still in talks with certain liquid cooling OEMs to see if we will sell the cooler separate from the case as well, but we aim to.

CPU and GPU are cooled on the same loop. Thermal testing has been favourable.

The case itself is constructed entirely from hard anodized 3mm aluminum, and it is likely we will have made to order options for any color you chose.

Unfortunately, it is not a cheap case, nor do we intend it to be. We foresee volume to be low, as it is a boutique market we are aiming for. Think of an affordable supercar, as opposed to a chinese import vehicle.

We have an exclusivity agreement for the first review with a certain website, and the review should show up somewhere around 2 months from now, which should be enough time to finalize our thermal testing.

We have a unique method of construction that completely integrates the cooling system, allowing for the absolute minimum size for the overall case. Hopefully you will all like it. It is however, a little different.

Sounds pretty slick. When you say "not cheap" what's your projected/target retail price?

We could sell them the moment our prototype gets back for $1000 USD, but thats a bit high for our liking. We are working really hard instead to bring the costs down at every point in our supply chain, from freight to manufacturing right down to the anodizing system.

A comparable system built DIY would still be expensive though so we have to keep that in mind.

For example, how much would it cost to build a WC ITX Titan rig with a 180mm radiator, custom 180mm fan, dual block (cpu and gpu), dual pump, support for 4 HDD and any size PSU - all the way to the needlessly large extended versions?

So, currently its going to be sub $1k for all of the above, but how much under we don't know yet. But we are working hard on that.

That's a long wait.

But when it comes to an efficient WC loop (low temps), a shoe box case isn't the best choice.

No one's mentioned the Compact Splash? It's a little bigger than the NCASE M1, but also a bit more watercooling oriented and available now (or as long as it takes to make them). Cost is higher than e.g. the Prodigy, but you can't really match the size/features, and you'd be supporting grassroots innovation from the community.

I like the Splash.

CaseLabs just announced 2x140 and 180mm rad support for the Mercury ITX. POW!
