When building PCs, many of us want to fit the most powerful hardware possible within the smallest possible enclosure. Whether you need a compact LAN-ready PC or a simple need to save up some desk space, MITX is the form factor of choice for size conscious PC builders. But what if your aim is to have the smallest gaming PC possible? THOR ZONE, a Sweedish startup, has released its compact MJOLNIR Mini ITX case onto Kickstarter, shattering the company's financial target of SEK 585,000 (£46,851), having already generated SEK 1,822,573 (£145,967). This case only took 11 minutes to surpass its Kickstarter funding target. 

The MJOLNIR is a compact  ITX chassis that's designed to contain CPUs like Intel's i9-9900K and GPUs like the RTX 2080 Ti with ease. It's a mighty weapon which players can wield to challenge even the most demanding of PC games. This case is designed to occupy less than 10 litres of space, measuring in at 209 x 131 x 354 mm, making the MJOLNIR one of the smallest PC cases on the market. The case requires an included PCIe riser cable to support a graphics card, which is a must for an enclosure of this size. The case even ships with support for liquid cooling, with radiator sizes up to 240mm being supported within the chassis. 
 
The THOR ZONE MJOLNIR is available for as little as £233 on Kickstarter. Initial case orders are expected to ship in May 2020. 
 
That is a rather high price for an ITX case in my opinion, but if the quality is good then maybe it might be worth it. 

Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    I do agree that the price is a bit high for an ITX case. It will be interesting to see if it does well in the market place and if we see a fallow up.

    What's the difference between this and a shuttle case? The internal structure is flimsier, and in the video he is scared to tighten the fan too much in case the case breaks in half? Cool.... Pass.

    Yes, lets throw in a 2080 Ti and a 9900K in a case the size of a toaster.  Great idea!  smh

    Strange, I was expecting the case to look like this.
     

     
    I wonder why?
