To be fair, no-one needs a £300 pc case!
BTW, looks like the Meshlicious should be coming up on Amazon relatively soon.
it's up for pre order on newegg, when is the UK pre order coming...?
Do we have any custom PSU cable gurus in the forum?
I was thinking of getting some unsleeved ones from pslate - the stacked SATA connector seems too good to miss out on. Is there any place with better value or service to go for?
Two new SFF cases from Lian-Li
The 58 is a good looking case. I like the split panel types.
Good spot there thanks @Ending Credits!
No mention of the A4H20 on the Dan Case pages on SFFN, he was keeping pretty quiet about this release.
Looks a bit of a one trick pony (as per Ali's assessment), but if you need a rad and an affordable case, it opens up your options.
Q58 is pretty ingenious, some clever features. That accessible rear fan hub is a nice touch.
The 2 tone finish does seem a bit derivative compared to the T1, I await to be convinced about the glass/mesh split. It would be good tohave the option of swapping either sort for the other.
i.e. both glass or both mesh; or even mesh on top, glass below.
My first thought is of using some solenoids to open the mesh when fan speed is high, then closing the mesh at lower fan speeds... Cause reasons maybe.
I really like the Q58 - some brilliant features there, but I'm not sold on the glass panel.
I also think we'll find the price is about as realistic as current GPU MSRPs.
I couldn't believe the A4 H2O was coming in at $120. Dondan has put a picture of a potential revision to the original design that has (*gasp*) external screws. Might have just been a prototype, but surely there are quite a few corners that Lian Li will have to cut to hit that pricepoint?
Yeah, as looks go it's not as good as the A4, but then it's a (hopefully widely available) 240mm radiator compatible case at just over 10l, which is impressive enough in itself.
EDIT: I actually quite like the revision, although the screws aren't great. Might be a lot of people end up doing a magnet swap?
Any recommendations for readily available ITX cases?
Requirement: watercooling support for CPU (120mm, as I've just got a 95w i9 9900)
Requirement: fits SFX PSUs
Requirement: fits my GPU - a EVGA GTX 1080ti AC2 with the following dimensions
Height: 4.66in - 118.48mm
Length: 10.6in - 269.2mm
Edit: looking at Coolermaster NR200 and Lian Li TU150
Both are great cases. We've done a review of the TU150 and I have a review of the NR200P coming up soon
Nice! I'll look out for it and go and read the lian li review now.
The lian li, I expect, has a more premium finish, but the cooler master seems better from a functional perspective.
From what I've seen, the TU150 is no easier to build in despite being 20%+ bigger.
Unless you need the handle*, it takes up space and complicates the build process.
CM seem to have hit a sweet spot with the NR200. It's small, flexible, well made and not expensive compared to the sub 20L boutique cases out there.
*I'm a sucker for handles, but it being twice the volume of an M1 is offputting.
You could wait for the SSUPD Meshalicious?
Good thinking that man! Not sure how soon it's due, but soon nevertheless
Yeah, to be honest, love the vertical form factor, but who knows when it'll be available!
I have a prototype rcc-big1 that is sat currently unused, if that would float your boat?
Its a prototype (so has a couple of niggles)
