    Looks nice. Know any dimensions?

    It genuinely looks like an SFF case, a relief after the increasing number of >40L cases that can only fit mITX. But it still seems a very early prototype. We do need more monolithic simplistic design cases, with the few options we have.

    I may be misinformed or just not recalling correctly, but doesn't Silverstone have some sort of design patent on this kind of case layout?

    I like it though. Looks a lot better than Silverstone's chimney(s). :)

    I think not because the lifetime of cases are to short so it make no sense. If they made it they couldnt do nothing because the deepcool looks different. A patent on the layout is also not possible because it isnt a new layout and could not make a patent on something if anybody else build something same in the past or published a picture of it. Real patents must be made a year before publishing and must be something completly new.It could also be that Silverstone OEM build this case for Deepcool.

    Edit: I searched in the euopean patent database and found out that silverstone has a patent for top io orientation for the motherboard.

    This makes use of all available space. Nice. Looks possible to function as a vertical shoebox as well.

    Better have your cable management skills up to snuff because this one's a doozy.

    Wait which model is this one? Layout looks like the Metis (kinda).

    Looks great!! I wish they'd just switch over to SFX / Flex / 1U power supplies, though. ATX supplies are almost the same footprint as the motherboard!

    Volume-wise it's even worse, especially if it's not modular with all the excess cable. The 24-pin connector cables are also very bulky and long on most ATX PSU's. I'm glad Silverstone wen't the extra mile on the SFX PSU's and now ship the ribbon cables as-standard with them.

    They should go the extra 2 feet, and include a set that's a combination of the shortest cables from their PP05-E set and the included SFX set. The SX600-G set is just way too long for most small builds.

    I'm guessing they're just taking into consideration the max length needed for the folks that buy those humongous ITX cases ;)

    Thanks for the link, there are some more pics there! Yeah this is quite nice... even has ventilation for the GPU, which the Metis didn't...

    If dimensions aren't too bad, I'll get this or the Osmi.

    Never heard of this brand - any idea of possible retailers in America?

    I thought Silverstone had the patent for 90 degree motherboards, maybe they won't release the DeepCool in the US?

    I'm not quite sure, but I think I read somewhere that they had that patent.
    That's why their "Raven/Fortress" series was very popular, because you couldn't get anything like it.

    Only in Taiwan and China do they have this patent.

    Sorry to revive this thread, but did anyone see release of the “no-name” case mentioned above? The one without glass
