CaseLabs announces the X2 Prototype

post #1 of 316
Thread Starter 
We are pleased to officially announce our newest prototype case in the works, the X2. (Series name TBD)

The X2 was influenced from feedback received from several PDXALN events, OCN members and customers still wanting a high quality "water friendly" mITX case that can support full size hardware, but with a smaller footprint. There are MANY changes coming, but here are pictures of the general layout










(beside a S3 for reference.)




Spec list as of Aug 12, 2014 (SUBJECT TO CHANGE)

* Heavy gauge all aluminum construction
* mITX form factor
* Reversible
* Full-size PSU support
* 2 PCI slots and full length video card support (2.5 slot cards okay)
* 240/280 radiator support in the roof with 55mm clearance (front rad support is TBD)
* 170mm cooling tower clearance
* Removable motherboard plate
* Flex-Bay system (number of bays TBD)
* Screwed together chassis
* Quick release exterior
* Extended tops and Pedestals will be available
* Drive support TBD
* Exterior dimensions TBD
* Price TBD

When those who want to use an AIO unit in a small form factor chassis, but don't have a small form factor chassis from the maker of said AIO see this, it will be.
As usual, it will support Air, AIO, and water. It's a CaseLabs case. And when you need that extra oomph for cooling your Titan (or next big name GPU), there's always a pedestal.

Nice.. Hoping you guys come up with a M-ATX size one too. The SM5 is a little too tall.

My brother got himself the NCase M1, but I'm interested in assembling this case and hope it is configurable.

Is it still compatible with standard ATX PSUs? The layout below the motherboard area seems lower in here than the S3.
