-Completely de-attacheable parts for easy component upgrade
-tempered glass

Able to house:

-1x GPU (170x38mm)
-1x mITX MBO (170x170mm)
-1x slim 120mm case fan (120x14mm)
-1x SFX PSU (125x100x63mm)
-1x 2"5 SSD/HDD
-1x radiator 25mm
-1x external reservoir


Suggestions/criticism welcome

I can tell you that the minimum inside width of the case needs to be at least 125 to fit the r9 nano, as the top (side?) of the card extends 5mm past the pcie bracket. Also you'll need to keep psu exhast openings in mind. Nice, beautiful compact solution otherwise!

I've done some mock layout ideas for a similar looking case with the R9 Nano, so if you can finish this first, hats off to you. @platobrainchild is correct- you will need at least 125mm of case width to accommodate the graphics card, even if you exclude ones with side power connectors.

As far as PSU intake/exhaust goes, you can manage that well if you use an all-in-one liquid cooler for the CPU, and use the front for attaching the radiator and fan.

I like it! Using an AIO rad and the Nano allows this to be quite small, even if it's a bit limiting.
Maybe some day will be the day where you can actually make this. If you had fun coming this far, maybe try and research for how to make it easily manufacturable and tweak the design a little bit. Maybe someone is interested enough to build it if you do the modeling work for them.
