    Not sure there is much point having a side panel window on the chassis. All you see is a meaty ATX PSU and 2 fans with a rad sandwiched in the middle!

    I have two builds using the same chassis in both AMD and NVidia configuration. If you purchase the chassis/case independently, it can actually be reconfigured in an "opposite" orientation. In it's stock form (window on the right), the Metis is able to hold up to a 215-220mm GPU (about 8.5 inches) using a non-modular Corsair CX500 PSU. I have a 4th gen i5, Sapphire dual fan HD7790, 16GB RAM, a standard 2.5 SSD as the boot drive, a standard 3.5 WD storage drive and a full-sized CM Hyper 212 plus for cooling. The Metis can also be completely disassembled and reassembled with the window on the left. With this "reversed" orientation, I was able to build a Xeon based system, 16GB of RAM, a 2.5 SSD and a 2.5 WD Black HDD (and an option for mSata), a non-modular Corsair TX650 PSU, AIO water cooler with 2 fans and an Nvidia Asus GTX970 mini. Both are quite capable systems and temperature is not a big issue if you have the rear fan set as intake and the PSU doing all the exhausting.

    I love how chillblast reconfigured this system to make use of the new skylake CPU and AMD Nano. The mostly aluminum Metis is a nice sleek case and the Nano simply begs to be installed in a system with such a small footprint.

    I'd quite like one of these, just because I like the idea of having a small PC. Not that it'd make any difference to me but it's cool anyway. I think I'd want a case with a SFF PSU if I'm going down that road though.

    Yeah I don't really understand why they haven't used an SFX PSU in this one to be honest - would give them much more breathing room and the power draw is easily low enough!

    I have an SFX in my mini-ITX build (although out of necessity in my case) and I'd never go back unless I absolutely had to. With components getting ever more power efficient, the days of needing huge PSUs are surely numbered...

    This and on-die cooling could be the next wave
