Then from there the only other ATX cases are the large merlin cases SM8 or SMA8. The problem IMO with case labs' lineup right now is there isn't small ATX styled cases. The BH8 is the only option if you're not looking for a super large case.

Generally, a medium sized case design + water cooling support case labs style = full tower case. I'd love to see small ATX cases with water cooling support but designed for small and slim 30mm radiators and small pumps, similar to the BH8. Perhaps a vertical version of a BH8 just slightly tweaked?



This is the kind of feedback we need. If there's enough support for a product, and it's within CaseLabs ideals/design themes, I can pass it along to the rest of the team and push for it to be implemented in some way. One of the biggest issues for ATX designs is the overwhelming amount of options already available.

Judging from what you've said, I'm guessing you'd like something similar to the size of the Mercury S3 but with ATX board mounting capability? Or perhaps a Merlin SM8 in Mercury S3 size?

A Mercury S3 with ATX capability is essentially a Mercury S8S - been there done that. A SM8 in S3 size could be interesting, essentially a X8M Nova? That could work but it's not very "interesting" of a case. I feel like a vertical BH8 with a full window could be interesting with the dual compartments with the dimensions of just an EATX motherboard.

That's actually why I modded the BH4. I loved the idea of a dual compartment/bay design. If there's enough support for it, the management team might be interested in offering a rotated, full window version of the BH8.

Yeah, I didn't realize the sizes were so close, but after looking back at it, you're right.
