Really enjoy the small cases and want to downsize a bit so I can fit my pc on the desk and the UMX1-Plus fits the bill.




Why the UMX1-Plus:
-Loved the look of the original UMX1 with the sleek aluminum face and all around design. The Jonsbo UMX1 - Plus is essentially the same as the other UMX1s except that they changed the back panel so you can have a dual slot gpu.
-Its a rectangle not a cube!
-I just love watercooling. Could fit a 240 rad in the bottom and a 120 up top only other case that seems to offer this rad setup is a Compact Splash but alas it has been sold out for quite some time.

Case Break down: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Two more screws hidden behind the Front I/O

Mobo tray is the back panel. Don't really like that they aren't separate but you couldn't remove the back panel anyway since its screwed in through this side.


6 Screws in the back to remove bottom floating floor

Ah! But wait! there are 2 rivets! one on each side!

Test fitting Rad: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Mang! End tank bumping into Front I/O

Measure, measure, measure.

Oooo look I can just snip the pcb! but no more usb 3.0.

Probably the most interesting stuff found in here biggrin.gif
Test fitting everything: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Ssd will most likely be placed in front of sfx psu



Pretty tight fitting for the fittings. Looks like I won't be getting ram out of this slot.

They advertised that a atx psu would fit and I thought I would test it.

It will be really tight fit with all the cables plugged in.

15mm fans fit if you have your rad and fans right on the bottom tray. 25 mm will fit if you offset the rad up but...

Gpu Bracket extends past the top of the rad.

Pump will most likely go here. Testing how much space you might have without the psu bracket.

Didn't know they made version of these cases with glass panels.

The last UMX1 build log was pretty nice, so I look forward to this one.

Great work man, keep it up!
How do you plan to use the radiator's fans?
With exception of the space reserved for radiators, this case do not have cutouts for intake/exhaust, passively or using fans...?
And, the gpu is kinda of blocking the airflow for the 240mm bottom rad. What's the tick size of that rad?

Sadly its not glass but smoked acrylic. I think you could make one out of glass fairly easily. The last UMX1 was definitely nice with its 3d printed covers, hopefully I can make it as clean looking though. thumb.gif

Fans will be mounted on the Rad. I will need to mod the bottom panel and cut some space for them right because it isn't really vented. With the fans mounted underneath there is access to fresh air because the panels don't go all the way down.
I think I can get away with the gpu blocking the rad a bit. I mean there is some breathing room between the two. The good thing is that this case's back panel is easily removable with just some screws and a custom panel could be made like in this build. Having a custom panel made the gpu could be placed vertically with a riser card. Already have one being shipped smile.gif to test that out soon too.

Quick Update!
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
4 post that got in the way of mounting the rad flush. Decided to just widen fan screw holes in the rad.(Side note: Really good if a rad has the covering for the fins behind the fan screw hole. Helps when drilling/tapping.)

Side door mount that I had to cut in order for rad to fit. Will sand to make it look a little cleaner. Has no impact on door mounting even though it looks a little flimsy.

New grill for exhaust.

Size difference.

Result of the progress:
Tapped M4 threads for this side of the rad. Will need to paint still.


Currently working on:
Bottom rad mounting bracket.

Subbed for Jonsbo and watercooling; the UMX1 isn't known enough.

Another Update:
Original bottom bracket couldn't fit a 25 mm fan under the bend of the side panels.


New bottom bracket allows for a 25 mm fan to fit.



Will have more pics of the bottom bracket once I cut the bottom out and paint.
