    Will you be selling extras of the magnetic panels as how I have my case(Q300L) on its side I'd like to replace the foot and the flimsy bottom with another one matching the front?

    Will be getting a Q500L for sure when Ryzen 3000 comes out as this means I can go from Micro Atx to full size ATX without having to beg the wife for a bigger computer area!

    Hope i quote this correctly.. bear with me first time using the forums :D
    Do you mean extras of the dust filters right? If so yes, we already have the Q300L dust filters on the CMStore and will probably have the same for the Q500L shortly after launch on the website too :)
    We aim to have majority of our parts on CMStore so you can always replace little bits and bobs if needed.

    We hope you will like the Q500L and have a good "discussion" with the wife on why you want to upgrade XD

    well it looks like a nice case and nice to see a compact ATX for a change, i image they way that the acrylic is mounted, it could easily be released with a tempered glass panel at a later date

    Is it possible to fit a 120mm fan below the PSU?

    Woulld be nice if Case guy's would make it so can move IO ports/on/reset board to low front or side so if sitting on a desk can have gadgets out front low not getting in the way.plus that way could have it left or right side of desk/nesting/perching area!

    Just had a look. The NR400 looks pretty good. Seems a lot like the Fractal Design Meshify Mini C, but £20 cheaper.

    If you only have one GPU, is it possible to mount the PSU on the floor at the back overlapping the motherboard?

    Thanks! :) Some of the new launches such as NR400 and NR600 will indeed be TG side panels. As the Q500L is the budget option, we couldn't realistically bring this option to the Q series. Maybe in the future though? :)

    Yes you can! However bear in mind the PSU length.
    If the PSU is greater than 160mm, then it might cause an interference having a 120mm fan at the front. Anything shorter and you should be fine :)

    The I/O is rotatable, so you could have all the IO ports at the bottom of the side panel. It literally unscrews from the case and can be moved to all 4 positions (Top, Bottom, Left, Right)
    I'm pretty sure you can also mount it to the back IF i remember correctly. I will have to double check this. This would mean you basically swap the acrylic panel of the steel one at the back... but yes i'm pretty sure it can be done :p

    There was a lot of design thought into both the NR400 and NR600. Its definitely a switch up from our usual "gaming" esque style cases.
    Glad you like it :)

    Is there actually a release date for this? Very interested but also concerned that I'd have the to change CPU cooler at additional cost. For such a wide case I was surprised to find that the max CPU cooler height is only 160mm. I understand some of that width is for cable routing behind the motherboard, but my current Define R2 is slightly thinner and does fit my Xigmatek Prime CPU cooler... just. Reckon I can squeeze the extra 5mm out of it? The Define R2 has a recommended 165mm max cooler height.

    Looks good and something I would be interested in. Especially the NR400 although still no USB-C port on the front panels?
