It is awesome 👏

What a beautiful design. However i do think by doing the following will improve it.
1. Airflow for the GPU seems very very limited, i think using a PCI-E riser and putting the GPU facing the other way will improve temps.
2. Move the PSU up close to the ports of the GPU, so all the hot air gets out uniformly, this also creates more space below the PSU, free of hot air.
3. Hard Drive location, i think we could move it to the free space below of the PSU (read above).
4. We can take that new free space below the hard drive and GPU (read above) to add support to liquid cooled cards, for example we have the main fan at the bottom, we attach the radiator on top of the main fan and we put another fan over the radiator, basically a push/pull configuration, by doing this we cool the GPU and we also send air to the other components hard drive, PSU and TB3 board.
5. We should add another fan at the top, to work as a exhaust.
6. Since I suggested using a PCI-E riser, we could move the TB3 board and make it face one side of the case so we can have all ports on the side.

I will try working on the file you shared, but honestly i don’t have any experience with CAD tools.

Very interesting, mind if you make a rough sketch of your idea? I might see if I can incorporate these changes and improve the design.

Hoping to see other people going to use the designs as well

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
