Im in for a cube case!

nice to see you mark

erm

big enough for current and future hardware

a good position for the rad (perhaps up to 360mm rad?)

yeh, good cooling for the summer

watercooling ofc

some place to route cables?

some mesh/window (altho mesh does look cooler)

so large enough for all current and future standard hardware, but to be able to stick a handle or something on it so it aint a pain to carry to lans

flatpack ikea style ftw!

wonder what the estimated cost will be? we could have quite a demand for these

I'm up for a Cube for ma new system.. has to be able to hold two loops on 240 or bigger rads tho.

Maybe something with a PVC (windowed) top/side depending on the mobo setup.

I dont know about the rest but 2x 5 1/4 bays external and 4x HDD bays internal would suit me.

Hello mrapoc.

I was looking at a triple rad I have and its 15.5" in length(sorry I grew up before the metric system)

The Qpack case if I remember was 14" deep 10" wide and 9" tall

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144111

Is this similar to the shape you want? and if you want room for the triple I could just add an inch or so to the length.

Or do you want a double or a double and a single(2 loops)

heyyy

well anything cubular in shape and not as big as that lian li recently reviewed.

that case looks ace, maybe a bit small. as for loops, iv only ever done one loop and it was fine, but as others may want the same design perhaps offer the option to either have 2/3 fans on one side, or an extra rad.

edit: i found that the mountain mods H2GO had everything i was after

if i can get you to agree on the shape of the Qpack I can make a case about 1" taller 1 1/2" longer and 1/2" wider to house a dual rad and a single (with 1 or 2 pumps/loops) or a triple rad (single loop).

It would mount any GPUs (2,3 or 4) and any size PS as well.

looks about right to me mate, and personally id just go for a triple rad and not bother with two loops.

what kinda airflow are we gonna look at as well?

you all need to agree on the Rads first. Airflow will be superior to any existing SFF case.

How many Hdds do you all want to have room for?

Also can you use Laptop DVD or do you require reg size DVDs?

give me some Ideas of the mobos, PSs, and GPUs that may be used.

Triple Rad sounds okay to me. People with a double (like me) can use the extra space for other things.

I would rather use a Regular sized DVD drive.. dunno about everyone else. With hardware I was thinking of High-End gear. Full ATX stuff.

Someone else can elaborate.
