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.

This might be my next case. I can't wait to see how it develops.
