Kind of dissapointed. The front panel is not for me, I prefer the clean look. They should have made it a clean anodized aluminium slate.

The problem is they made an ITX case without compromise. You can't have a innovative really small ITX case without making compromises.

The support for really big ATX PSU's ruins it for me. Makes sense from a business point of view(which is of course the most important pov for any company) so people don't have to buy a new psu and to have compatibility with their own PSU's.

This is like a node 304 in dimensions but a lot higher?

But I am sure people will be amazed by its size and it will draw a lot of mainstreal attention to SFF which is a good thing in many ways(but not all). Things we still need for driving SFF even smaller:

new sort of small PSU that is quiet. SFX is going in the right direction and the 600watt SFX PSU silverstone'll soon release could be it. But the 1U PSU in the hadron air is apparently amazing, both in performance as noise, while being extremely space efficient.

And GPUs that are really power efficient. The 780/780ti and 290/290x are great from a performance pov. But when I bought my 400watt PSU and gtx 670 I wasn't worried at all of running out of juice when I'd upgrade. Because power consumption could only go down drastically with all this focus on mobile and environment right? Not really. 2013 high end GPUs tacked on another 50-100watt on the high end GPUs of 2012. Now imagine 780ti performance in a 100-150 watt enveloppe! This results in the kind of performance in the form factor of the asus 760 and 670 mini. But if power consumption could be even lower than these cards they could also be quieter.

Edit: so it turns out it is a lot bigger than I thought. Like prodigy big. So sad. Ncase m1 proves that high-end hardware can fit in real small classy and stylish enclosure. Then again it is hard to come up with a lay-out as efficient as ncase m1,without blatantly copying it.

The problem with this case is that it's so big for a mini-ITX... If those dimensions are right, it's a whopping 28L. The TJ08-E is only 30L and can fit micro-ATX...

 

Edit: In that sense it's a rather disappointing case for future/existing mini-ITX owners, but this case was built for "no compromise" - I guess as a transitional case for owners of ATX and larger looking to switch to mini ITX without dumping most of their hardware.

The new Prodigy ? It's too big, and that's everything.

dunx

P.S. I'm sure an MATX board would fit easily if they had tried....

Wow then it is even bigger than I thought. So it is prodigy like but a little lower? I think that the high feet of the case are included in the listed height though. I heard someone say:'it looks like if someone sat on a 350D' and I kind of agree. They should've at least made it windowed then. But I'l sure they will sell a seperate windowed version or panel.

Ribozyme I'm pretty sure the top has a window

Yup my bad. A side window for showing off the GPU would be cool too. The meshed sides really look ugly IMHO.

If it was only a inch or 2 wider for matx then it would be a day 1 purchase for me.
