Dominus by Subtec

Subtec's Dominus appears to be one of the easiest cases to manufacture, with some great features added into the design too. The design includes a removable motherboard tray, and extensive use of fan filters too. It supports a wide variety of radiators as well, with the option to use large 120mm or 140mm radiators or multiple 200mm-fan radiators. Subtec has explained his design below:

'The Dominus is designed to house the most powerful hardware available, including the EVGA SR-2 dual processor motherboard, up to five full-length, dual-slot video cards and up to two ATX power supplies. This is all in a case that sits midway between a Silverstone TJ07 and a Corsair 800D in terms of size.

The roof of the case can accommodate a quad 120mm-fan or 140mm-fan radiator, or two Phobya single 200mm-fan radiators with push-pull fans, while the case floor can additionally support a dual 140mm-fan or triple 120mm-fan radiator. Alternatively, this location supports up to two 200mm/180mm/140mm fans, or three 120mm fans serving as intakes. Meanwhile, universal mounting plates support standard fan mounts from 120mm to 200mm, and may be repositioned as needed at the top of the case. A 120mm fan mount is also provided at the rear of the case.

A unique feature of the Dominus is the slide-out motherboard tray, which may be reorientated vertically and reinserted into the case, thereby enabling an 'air mode' that's optimised for air-cooling. In this configuration, fans sized up to 200mm blow air straight up through the components, and out the top of the case.

Other features include a full-length air filter that spans the bottom of the case, and this may be easily removed through the front panel. There's also a re-positionable top fill-port plate, which uses the same mounting points as the universal fan plates.'
