Big fan of the weight design.

Any chance this might use the h87?

Unfortunately, due to the location of the JST connector, only the PCB designed for the case will be compatible

Will the daughterboard sit on the right hand side as shown in the renders? Personally I would prefer a centered USB Port.

That is one of the things I wish to iron out with this IC

Very interested in this! Would def prefer the usb c port to be centered. I would also love to have a maroon color option that matches Bingsu :). Looking forward to this.

Interesting design. I do agree with others, if you're using a daughterboard anyway, you might as well center the USB port

15/10/20 update

• E-White case option being considered, renders added
• Accent crescent added above arrow cluster, awaiting further feedback
• Regarding USB port location, neither one is more popular than the other as of now

i don't mind the idea of additional crescent branding (front) since the logo is very cool, however i'd like to see what it looks like offset rather than aligned with the up/down keys also.

Would be looking at around 2.1kg built weight.

Edit: Weighed it with a better scale and turns out it was closer to 2.4kg built
