    Hi, we are the techbead team (Sergey Mnev (LongLove) and Anton Osipov) from Russia. We would like to present you the APEX project.
    A bit of history:
    This project was originally conceived as just an unusual chassis, without much idea. We do not even want to do it any accent or just whiling away the time after the competition Case Mod World Series 2017. But every day this project involved us more and after the exhibition Computex2017 and the announcement of the motherboard ASUS ROG Rampage VI Apex he had a name: " APEX".
    Now this project has become meaningful and we understand how it should be.

    At this stage, we present you the outline of the project. Material from which the case will be made: steel and tempered glass.

    The most difficult thing in production was the creation of the legs of the CASE!

    The base of the motherboard turned out to be rather small.
