SFF time

​19.7 L | Small Footprint | 3-slot GPUs | Riser-less Design |

Seamless design for cable management perfection.

The MNLT is a vertical, riser-less case with very focused and guided airflow, optimized for air cooling.

It supports large GPU's and large CPU air coolers (even Noctua NH-D15S as you'll see) with aid of smartly placed case fans. It has IO on the bottom and bottom to top airflow. It also has enough space (60 mm) for all your cable connectors so no need for any angle adapters.

This allows for extremely tidy cable management on your desk and a small footprint (23x21 cm) so you can place it next to your monitor and it won't stick out.

Dimensions: 231 x 209 x 408 mm or 19.7 L which is very near that famous 20L cut off point for SFF, but this design has

  • 19.7 L is the total volume on your desk (including all cables ends which are usually not counted with standard cases and account for almost 3 L for this case).

  • Small footprint - it's largest dimension is height, which is almost never a problem, while desk space is.

  • The smallest size that permits long and tall 3-slot GPU's with large and tall CPU coolers such as NH-D15S.

  • Riser-less feature, so you won't have any problems with gen4 and upcoming gen5 platforms.


  • 19.7 L volume with 231 x 209 x 408 mm outer dimensions

  • vertical riser-less tower case with bottom IO

  • support for ITX and m-DTX motherboards

  • support for 3 slot GPU's up to 345 mm long (315/320 mm with 200 mm top fan)

  • CPU air coolers up to 182 mm (max allowed overhang from the motherboard is 5 mm)

  • mount for 120 mm AIO or radiator on the bottom

  • SFX power supplies up to 100 mm long (no SFX-L support)

  • support for two 2.5" hard drives

  • case fans: 140 or 120 mm bottom | 200, 140 or 120 mm top | 2 x 120 mm side

  • included two 140 mm Arctic P14 Silent fans on top and bottom positions

  • 59 mm clearance for cable connectors on bottom

  • invisible power switch on top

​Temperatures: CPU is simple, it gets same temperatures as on open bench so that is a win in our book. GPU is a bit more complicated and it depends mostly on the exhaust. Without the top mesh it is 1-2 degrees cooler than open bench, and with it, it can get up to 10 degrees warmer. This will be redesigned from the current prototype to have a more open area, however, it's an easy 2 second to remove and reattach (magnets) if you wish to get max performance.

Constructions: mostly 1.5 mm thick aluminum sheet metal, with rear panel and top fan holder made out of 0.8 mm steel since they need to be magnetic. Top mesh is 0.4 mm steel since it has to be very flexible and will be attached magnetically (think of top meshes on standard cases).

Build process is very easy since you can work on open chassis and then just slide it into the shell and attach other panels after that. Also there is space next to PSU for tucking extra cables and a few cable tie points.
