    The case has actually already released, Stock is due in 2 weeks hopefully, assuming the sea is gentle :)
    The cooler height is at most we can do, I will check to see if 165mm is doable but honestly very unlikely. Let me get back to you on that one

    Thanks! Glad you like it.
    NR400 is also a good looking chassis but indeed there are no USB-C Ports on that one. Right now, Type C ports are reserved for some of the higher end chassis. Hopefully in the future we can bring these down the range too

    SL600M
    H500M
    MC500Mt

    Thanks, I'd appreciate that. It's a great looking case and much smaller than others I've looked at, but if I'm looking at £55 for the case and £30 min for a new cooler, the overall cost opens up the market and I could consider a few more options. I haven't upgraded the actual components in years so don't wish to spend more than I have to.

    Oh pants... Would this be sent out tomorrow/Friday if pre-ordered? And do you have enough stock to cover the pre-orders? I've got this weekend off so would be great to get on with this! I don't want to have to wait if they're already all gone.

    @Pulse Stock will be with us tomorrow I have been assured by supplier. Whether the warehouse team can get it booked in is another matter as they have been rather busy of late. I will speak with them tomorrow and see if I can get the delivery booked in ASAP.
    If booked in tomorrow before Lunch, Pre-Orders Should begin shipping Tomorrow evening / Friday. I currently have enough stock to cover the Pre-Orders and some spare as of the time of typing (at home eating my dinner I might add) :D See the lengths we go to here at OcUK for our loyal customers :p

    I hope we're going to get the non optical drive variants in Europe ^^ (NR400/NR600)

    Can't speak for the rest of Europe as it is dependant per country. It isssss possible for UK to bring them in but at the moment we have only scheduled in for the ODD variants.
    We can look to bring a small batch of either one in but it will be around 2-3 months from now if we do.

    Did anyone purchase one of these and willing to share some pictures of builds? I honestly thought this would be quite a popular case being so small, at that price point and still being able to fit a full ATX board. It's a shame that the CPU cooler height is still putting me off. Did you get a chance to look into that Ron_CM?

    Yes I did, we tried it out and; Q500L will fit a 165mm but there will be no gap between the cooler and the acrylic side panel.
    This doesnt usually cause any problems but its just something to bear in mind :)

    EDIT: Also some photos of our builds, that we use for stock photos:

    Thanks, that's great to know. This will definitely be a purchase in the next couple of weeks then! Bought too much other nonsense recently.

    And thanks for the video links, pretty sure I've watched all of them already and the last one was the one making me have a doubt about purchasing. They specifically compare it to the Meshify which was my other option.
