New micro ATX SFF gamers case: presentation and advices

Good morning everybody,

I’m working with a small team on the conception of a high end, small form factor case (SFF) that will be roughly as big as the Sugo SG01 but will offer much more options in terms of compatibility with high end, “gamers” hardware.
The objective: a clean, silent, sober, ultra compact case, with excellent air flow.
I’m posting the pictures of the first prototype. Keep in minde that we have made quite a few modifications since then, not show in these pictures, but listed in the specifications.

  1. I think you'll find that some folks would prefer additional external drive bays.

    Here's an example:
  2. Probably, but we are aiming at "as compact as possible". And the Q micra is big compared to this one. Very big.
    We have to compromise somewhere ;)
