    Hi there these are a couple of cases that i have designed that i may sell through my site www.overclockerzwatercooling.com and i would like your opinions on the designs

    Ok the first one is 744x644x220 mm (hxdxw) (before you say yes it is quite like the tj07 but it is different in many ways too.

    and the second is a 'cube' and it is able to fit up to 2 pa120.3's and 3 120.2's at once aswell as 8 5.25"bay devices and 6 harddrives i know noone will need all this i have just included the rads to prove it can be done.

    p.s. the design is not quite finished (top and bottom front wont be open)

    it is 500x500x550 mm (wxhxd)

    on the tower, have you thought about shortening the window so that you dont see much of the top rad, it just seems that with this tower you want to focus on the motherboard, gpu, cpu, and probably all the tubing that would be used for the wc setup.

    Nice design:clap:! which program did you use?

    There's only one thing though; Will you not put a mesh/cover on the bottom front fan? (1st pic)

    I love the tower! I'm not much of a cube fan but it seems like it would work quite well. I agree with blu, I would make the window smaller on the tower.

    Google Sketchup - It's free!:D

    im going to build both of these at the end of june/start of july as i dont have the funds available at the moment so that i can post it on forums and on my site for sale as i need a couple of prototypes.

    I will make them earlier if someone is that interested in buying one or even a few people. the more people that want it the cheaper i can make it. so if anyone wants one please pm me

    Brilliance. If I might make a suggestion... Some form of interesting grille with some mesh, instead of the two fan guards on the side? Maybe the Overclockerzwatercooling logo?

    I really like the cube case design. Some of us really do try and fit all that in one case...

    not sure yet hopefully cheaper than the tj07 (which is a good deal seeing as its alot bigger and will be very very good quality

    i wont know any real prices though untill i have spoken to the manufacturing company though.

    but if anyone is interested before then i will also custom make these for you.

    Yikes.

    Not for me then, unless it's £150 cheaper.

    umm well if it was 150 cheaper i would be selling at a loss, aluminium, acrylic, fans, power etc etc it all adds up! and seeing as they need quite alot of alu that is only a bit more than just the alu would cost. seeing as the tj07 is 200. these will be enthusiast cases for the people that are into lian lis etc etc
