The dwarf planet lends its name to a space efficient space-age SFF case built from modern materials,
designed to complement any desk.
Custom liquid cooling options:
A second 240mm or 280mm radiator can be mounted on the left side above the motherboard (for a total of two, dual radiators). Assuming the second radiator is 30mm thick, with standard 25mm thick fans, this will only leave about 50mm of clearance for the cpu block. It is recommended to use slim fans in this configuration to allow for extra space for both the cpu block, and tube routing.
A 280mm radiator on the side brackets must be no more than 142mm wide to fit and will restrict gpu height (with waterblock terminals) to 142mm.
A dual 60mm radiator can be mounted on the back of the case either internally, or externally. This may conflict with some taller GPUs, and is mutually exclusive with the side radiator bracket. Both can not be installed concurrently.
A DDC pump with a reservoir top can be installed either in the front of the case, or in the rear of the case in lieu of 60mm fans. Either of these options is mutually exclusive with the side radiator brackets. If installing a DDC pump in the back of the case, the dual 60mm radiator can not be installed concurrently. If installing a DDC pump in the front of the case, the 240/280 radiator on the side panel is limited to ~30mm thick.
The GPU can be relocated to be closer to the side panel if it is single slot thick. This will allow for much thicker radiators on the side panel or a push-pull setup with standard 25mm thick fans.
If installing a DDC pump in the front of the case, the 240/280 radiator on the side panel is limited to ~30mm thick, and the ddc pump module is limited to 64mm wide, unless slim fans are used.
Each side bracket can support up to 2 SSDs, for a total of 4. The frame can support 3 SSDs above the fans on the side panel, and 3 more below. This allows for a total of 10 SSDs if using 120mm fans with no radiator. If using 140mm fans, only 2 SSDs can fit above and below instead of 3. Note the fans can move up and down and it is possible to mount 1 SSD above and 3 below or vice versa.
If using a 240mm radiator, at most 5 SSDs will fit on the side panel, depending on how the radiator is oriented. A 280mm radiator completely fills the space and will not allow for any SSDs above or below it. If installing a 120mm fan in the bottom of the case, SSDs can not be installed at the bottom.
The side radiator brackets also allow for alternative SSD mounting with either 1 SSD in the middle, or 1 SSD orientated vertically instead of horizontally. The side radiator bracket is reversible such that SSDs can be installed facing the inside or the outside.
If a 30mm thick radiator with 25mm thick fans is mounted on the side brackets, the total cpu cooler clearance is reduced to 50mm. Please note, in this configuration tube routing may be extremely difficult, it is strongly recommended to use slim fans.
Relocating the single slot GPU towards the side panel expands the max radiator + fans thickness to 90mm. This allows for push-pull setups with 30mm thick radiators.
With a dual slot GPU, the max radiator + fans thickness is 70mm.
The spacing underneath the GPU is 29mm which will allow for a standard 120mm fan.
The DDC pump mount at the front of the case can be used to mount a DDC unit that is 64mm wide or less. With a 64mm wide pump, the space to the inside of the case is 56mm, which should be enough for a 30mm radiator with standard fans. It is possible to mount wider DDC pump units into the case by utilizing the mounts in the rear.
The exterior dimensions are 360mm x 345mm x 142mm. The side panels do not form a perfect rectangle making for a visually appealing aesthetic, however the interior frame is perfectly rectilinear. The internal dimensions are 328mm x 317mm x 126mm which computes to just about 13L of internal volume.
