Post Modelled case suggestion: The Air 360

I love watercooled (silent) PC's that are small. I loved your Air 240 but I wanted more rads without increasing the foot print. So here's what I came up with: The 'Air 360' - a wonderful complement to your line-up (hint,hint) Attached are some CAD pictures (was using OpenSCAD to get all the dimensions correct)..

Dimensions: 400x220x420mm (HxWxD minus feet) - 37 liters
Motherboard: ATX, mATX, ITX
Slots: 7
PSU Clearance: 18cm (16cm recommended)
GPU Clearance: 41cm / wide cards
Radiator Top: 280, at least 70mm clearance incl fans
Radiator Bottom: 360 / 280 (clearance for mATX: 55mm+ with slots 6+7 unused)
Radiator Front: 140
Radiator Back: 120
Fans Front: 2 x 120 - 1x140 with 360 Rad installed
Fans Back: 1 x 120
4 SSD Mounts (on bracket - not rendered)
1 HDD (bracket - not rendered)

So it's a very compact ATX case that will still fit anyone's desk. It supports a very decent 280 rad (H110/H115), and in mATX it supports a 360+280 Rad or 2x280s.. for which there's little competition - in relation to the footprint. I think it could even support a 280 + 240 or 280+360 with ATX.

Notes: It still needs a solution to make the PSU vents look good... couldn't think of something. The poweroutlet is on the bottom rear. The radiator clearance spaces have been coloured in (grey).

Very impressive work! I'll pass this along to our engineers for some of our future designs.

Thanks Nick!

I've attached the source file so it's viewable in 3D (rename it to .scad and it will open in the free OpenSCAD).
The dimensions are in cm. Most of them will auto adjust others dimensions when changed.
