Most modern cases all have bottom slots, I agree with the others: keep the top, otherwise we'd have to drill it out ourselves biggrin.gif and... what would you put on the top slot? wink.gif

Leave the 2 pws slots alone great to have that option.
post #1373 of 1907
Keep two. Most psu makers have yet to make the cpu cable long enough (you can always buy an extension wink.gif) so the top option is a nice feature.

nice work dude clean as a whistle.
post #1378 of 1907
rotate bottom 1/3 of drive bays 90 deg.
simplify window and smooth out front.
widen just a touch giving more room for behind mobo cabling
larger casters.

Use this as inspiration biggrin.gif

This is one of the best case designs I have seen. Case Labs makes some very close to this. This didn't win the competition but what an awesome design!

Here's another rendering

I will let our design department know, and btw sorry about the spoiler!
But I thought it would be good to get some feedback from our professionals here on the Elysium club.biggrin.gif
Also we are currently having a debate about having 2 psu slots or 1, what do you guys think about just having a bottom 1 ?
Thanks in advance

WoW I didn't know we have Xigmatek rep. in the thread. I can not miss to give my requierments than:
- keep the two PSU mounting positions. It gives flexibility and enough space for Monsta radiator with push/pull configuration. You can even go further, make an option to mount the PSU in the drive bays. In this case there should be no problem to mount 420/480 radiator on top and bottom.
- improve the side panel locking mechanism. These latches are kind of hard to align and id there is slight bend in the case or in the door it becomes almost impossible to align with two hands. ( I have to help myself with foot to close mine biggrin.gif)
- 140mm fans in front. You are almost there, but the 5.25 slides are preventing me from putting 140mm radiator. Please make them modular, or think of some other way to hang the 5.25 devices (plastic skids which are removable??)
- leave space between the right Drive bay column and the side panel. In this case a lot cables can be hidden next to the drive bays. You can even put SSDs there without problem
- keep the 200mm side fan. I like
- improve the paint - the current one is flaking quiet easy.
- keep the competitive price. This is the best value for money I found, so please keep it that way.
- one of the biggest strength of the Elysium is its extensibility. Make it even more extensible.
* Provide brackets for radiator mounting in the drive bays.
* Brackets/options for reservoir mounting next to the motherboard
* Possibility to replace the hot-swap drive bay with fan controller (wermad can share his design I hope smile.gif)
* Cable hiding shroud to cover the PSU cables when PSU mounted on the bottom. I can get a few ideas from the thread as well.
* Casing/stand/hangs/shrouds for the right side panel to accommodate 1080 Phobia radiator (3x360, 9x120 or even 3x420 biggrin.gif). I am dreaming to hand this monster on my case, but I want it part of the PC. (The colleagues with wives and children will understand my point tongue.gif)
* Opening/valves for filling on the top and draining somewhere on the bottom.
- Spend more on promotion!!!! This is great "canvas" for water cooling. It shouldn't be that hard to find you in the internet. More people should know about the great product you are making.

I know that I went over top with some suggestions, but they can be added as options and not included in the standard package. Thanks and keep up the good work.
