Hmmm...

We have the something going for us here at OCN. She Loved E's "Compact Splash". They both look great, good work to the team who designed this one. Be sure to check out this!

Very very well thought out design but $160-200 is WAY too much. They need to aim for $100 and below. It sounds like the whole thing is aluminum?

Lian-Li is actually producing the case so there's a good chance that's it's all or mostly aluminum.

that would solve the tubing for the CPU , but what about the exess tubing for the radiator ? i mean , to pull it out and then , cramp all the exess tubing in spiral and bolt it on ?

see what im trying to say ?



they are trying to make this case too much universal , compromising on both sides , air and watercooling ... its not going to excel in any of those

... but it does looks pretty biggrin.gif

if Lian-Li is making the case, i hope this doesnt turns out like the Murderbox MKII thing

I would definitely buy this. $150 sounds good, if it is all aluminum.

Lian Li would be perfect for the manufacturer too.

It looks like that's the top that unbolts, it would be a pain but it could work without too much excess.

Just leave the tubing hooked up to the radiator itself and pull the entire unit through the top.

Needing toothpick fingers is the price you pay for wanting to water cool in a SFF case.
