Updraft MK1 - NH-D15 in a custom SFF

Updraft MK1

Size: 275 (L) x 180 (W) x 340 (H)
Footprint: 49500 mm^2
Volume: 16.8L
Motherboard: M-ITX
CPU cooler clearance: 165mm
GPU clearance: 325mm long, 68mm thick
PSU: SFX

Prototype SFF designed for maximum air cooling potential. Fits up to a NH-D15 and has the cleanest airflow throughout the case with no thermal recirculation and sealed CPU and GPU chambers. Performs as well as an open bench, and when fully built, will perform better than an open bench. The vertical chimney design potentially allows for a fan-off mode for the CPU cooler, and when combined with the fan-off mode of the 30XX cards, the PC would be able to run totally silent under light loads.

I'm planning to develop this fully and bring it to market by the end of the year.
