I posted about it in the Beastly mITX/mATX thread.

Still is good to promote. Might want to change the thread title to make it seem not so annoying. tongue.gif

Donated a couple days ago after deciding to go with this case for my build instead of the Bitfenix Prodigy. The case looks damn good while still staying relatively small. Their projected price tag is a little steep, but I cannot find another ITX case that looks as good and can cram as much hardware as this. This also means that I have to wait to do my ITX build (probably even longer than they estimate unless they haul ass on testing the case and moving into kickstarting the production), but I'll probably wait for Haswell to come out and see when the next generation of GPUs are released.

The two guys behind the project already ordered the prototype for testing. My biggest concern is how well that thing can allow for cooling. A large GPU looks to block any intake cooling coming from the 2 x 120mm fans you can install in the bottom. The side ventilation will allow for decent CPU cooling. If you plan to install an ATX PSU or use the dual hard drive cage though the other half of the side ventilation becomes useless. The designer of the case seems to think that passive movement of hot air rising out of the case through the top ventilation will keep the case cool. Here's hoping that he's right.

That case looks very interesting. smile.gif

Just thought I'd update this to say that the guys doing it have been sent pictures by Lian Li of the (almost finished) prototype - they're just waiting on the feet - and it looks every bit as good as the renders.

I can't tell from the pics, how many fans can this box hold? Best I can tell is 2 120s on the bottom, 2 120s on the side, and an 80/92mm on back. Are their fan mounts on the top panel to act as exhaust?

The top panel exhausts by pressure. The case is only 12 liters size, which means for good airflow you only really need two 120mm fans. One over the CPU, and one elsewhere depending on your components. They will reach every corner even at slow rpms.

My next question is are there sfx psus that can run an i5 3570k with a 4-4.2ghz overclock, a gtx 690, optical disk drive, and 2-3 hdds? I really like this case but I think my gpu is gonna limit me to matx cases or a bigger mitx case that can take a regular psu.

From reviews, a 690 with overclocked CPU will draw around 450-500W from the wall, which equates to 400-450W through the PSU, so Silverstone's ST45SF-G should just about cope as long as you don't go nuts with overclocking. Besides, by the time this thing is actually shipping, the 700 series will be out, or just around the corner, with much lower power consumption than the 690.
