Thank you WC for that..

I am in the middle of designing a few gaming cases for a couple companies and have "Non Compete" contracts going on too. I am designing a special case for Nvision08 that will not have an equal for quite some time.

There are many people that request SFF cases that use an ATX mobo (so many more options) and I promise when I get a bit of time Tox I will put something together for you. Start a thread and get everyones opinions on what they want the case to be..

Cheap/High Quality

SFF, Cube,Small Tower (design wise a rectangle is more appealing than a square)

water cooled/air (I have designed some air cooled cases that work pretty close to water)

what kind of hardware(2,3 or 4 gpus?) Hdds, how many, and can you use a laptop DVD or do you need a full size one

I am really slammed for the next few mos.(so I will have no time to maintain a thread) but I will make time for OC3D and this case.

PS: hello everyone

Thanks so much Mark!

If a MR admin dude could change the thread name to something like "Designing a Cube case" that would be lovely.

Ill start with my needs.

Well, I would love the case to be about to handle cooling top notch hardware, without having to take the sides off in summer(like now).

At the moment I am only running a 9800GX2 which is rather large. I much rather a large case to a small one. As I mentioned above, hardware expansion/new ideas I have.

Deffantly want to be able to water cool with it. I was aiming to put the rad on the bottom shelf of a cube case with decent airflow for high performance cooling. The rad I have here is a 240mm. I wanted to fit a res on the outside or in good view of the outside.

Mark, PM me about costing, actually wait.. ill PM you.

Anyone else with ideas for this please go ahead and contribute.

Costing is gonna be impossible. Since this case is a prototype the amount of work to build (possibly 20-30 hours) it makes it tooooo much to sell.

Chinese companies stamp cases out for about $2, and they make thousands at a time. Where as cube case makers make a few at a time so thats why cube cases cost so much.

What I will do is see if we can get 2 or 3 people to want this case and as long as materials, supplies and shipping get covered I will build them for OC3D.

Deal!

Well, we already have me and Mrapoc. Just another thought, flatpack it so it is a DIY and that could save shipping.

"Flat pack" is an excellent idea. Shipping from here to there is really not that much.

The trick will be getting those that want the cases to agree on the design. lol

Hi Mark

It's awesome to see you back again and even better knowing what you're doing. Congrats on your recent success too

Thread named changed as per Tox's request and thread stuck for the time being to ensure it doesn't disappear

I'd love to get hold of one of these. Need to think about price though, my parents dont own credit cards and so it makes it difficult for me to buy things off the internet. Bearing in mind price, I might have to beg my sister to buy me one.

Who thinks a OC3D Logo on the side of the case is cool?

Nice one PV.

an etched OC3D logo would look sweet Measurements coming too Tox for the case's capacity for a GX2 and a 240mm rad, just getting the rugrats interested in the notion of sleep
