Overview

MJOLNIR I is manufactured using high-precision casting, a rather complicated process that allows us to make something truly unique and solid. You will have the option to choose from 2 different finishes, aluminium or tempered glass side panels as well as programmable RGB lighting. All editions will have fully detachable internal frames, reversible layout, custom dust filters and support for both air coolers and 120 mm AIOs.

Colors – MJOLNIR I comes in 2 premium finishes: DARK and STEEL. These are achieved by first blasting the cases with tiny glass particles, creating a sparkly matt finish, and later on anodized them to their appropriate color.

Lighting – MJOLNIR I RGB Edition comes equipped with a bluetooth controlled, programmable lighting setup capable of 16 million colors. In some instances you may be able to hook up the LED strips directly to your motherboard, given that it has at least one 5V RGB header capable of controlling multiple LEDs.

Side Panels – For top / side panels you can choose to go with either aluminium or tempered glass. If you want good airflow we suggest choosing the aluminium ones, seeing as they are ventilated. However, if you want to show off your epic hardware, tempered glass is a great choice for you. As seen in below images, air can pass through the 5 mm opening around each glass panel; however, airflow can be further improved by using the included 5 mm standoffs and mounting the glass panels on the outside (adding additional 10 mm between them and the CPU / GPU fans).

Internal Frame – MJOLNIR I features a completely removable internal frame for easy hardware installation, cable routing, cleaning and testing. When you're done, simply insert it back into the unibody enclosure and turn the lock nut (located on the back) 90° counter-clockwise.

Flip Layout – You can reverse layout by simply flipping the internal frame 180° and inserting it back into the unibody enclosure. This may also increase AIO efficiency since the reservoir will be located above the pump instead of underneath it. To ensure the best cooling performance with the flipped layout we recommend that you mount the bottom dust filter on top instead.

Air Cooling – MJOLNIR I is compatible with 2 x 120 mm fans, one under the PSU and one under the Motherboard. We recommend configuring these fans for intake; effectively cooling off the PSU and VRMs by driving airflow from the bottom of the case out through the top.

Water Cooling – MJOLNIR I is compatible with 1 x 120 mm AIO, we strongly recommend using one if you decide to go with high-TDP CPUs from Intel or AMD. Additionally, you can also use 1 x 120 mm low-profile fan under the Motherboard to cool off the VRMs. It is also possible to set up a custom loop using a pump / block combo.

Compatibility

MJOLNIR I is compatible with some of the most powerful PC Hardware out there, compatibility will almost never be an issue. Check out below guidelines just to be extra safe:

Graphics Card (GPU)Standard PCIe power connectors with cables add about 22 mm (0.86") of height to your GPU, a solution might be to use GPUs with recessed power connectors or buy low-profile PCIe power connectors from electronics vendors.

AIO (Water Cooling)Only compatible with SFX PSUs.

CPU Cooler – Max height: 53mm (2.1")

Motherboard (MOBO) – mini-ITX

RAM – Max height: 57mm (2.3")

Case Fans – 2 x 120 mm fans | Max height under the PSU: 55mm (2.2") | Max height under the motherboard: 15mm (0.6") | Note: Case fans over 25mm (1.0") in height are only compatible with SFX PSUs.

Power Supply (PSU) – SFX or SFX-L

Storage Drives – 2.5" Standard | Max height: 7mm (0.28") or 15mm (0.6") | Max number: 2 x 7mm (0.28") or 1 x 15mm (0.6")

Case Specs

Dimensions – 354mm (13.9") x 209mm (8.2") x 131mm (5.1")

Volume – 9.7 liters

Weight – 3.9 kg with aluminium panels | 3.0 kg with glass panels

Timeline

MJOLNIR I has come a long way since its conception in early September of 2017, successfully facing many challenges and vastly widening our experience with regards to tech design and production. Check out below timeline to get a good grasp of what's left to do and how long it will take to get there.

Shipping & VAT

Take a look and see if you find your country in the map below, if you do that's epic! If you don't, let us know after the campaign and perhaps we'll be able to get it done anyway. EU-based backers are required to pay 25% Swedish VAT (included in the price). Non-EU backers can choose the (non-EU) rewards and avoid paying VAT upfront; however, you may still need to pay similar taxes locally.

Non-EU backers who got the EARLY BIRD rewards will get VAT refunded to them immediately after the campaign, so they are still the best value.

Who We Are & Why We Do It

We are a group of life-long friends that are engineers / economists by day and dedicated PC gamers / programmers by night. Some of us even do console gaming, but let's keep that a secret.

  •  Alexander Baranov (Founder) - GU School of Business, Economics and Law - MSc
  •  Måns Lögdlund - LiU Linköpings University - MSc
  •  Denize Forsman - GU School of Business, Economics and Law - MSc
  •  Emil Blomkvist - KTH Royal Institute of Technology - PHD
  •  Adam Brinkman - Chalmers University of Technology - MSc
  •  Johan Larsson Hörkén - Chalmers University of Technology - MSc
  •  Oscar Öhlin - LTU Luleå University of Technology - MSc

THOR ZONE is a way for us to take what we love, PC Hardware, and improve upon the things we find it's lacking; unique simplistic designs and that next-level solid feeling. You will never see a flimsy sheet metal case from us, that's for sure.

You and Us

MJOLNIR I is the results of many great minds working together, we can never claim full credit for this project. Something magical happens when backers and creators discuss different ideas and possibilities – The whole tends to always end up greater than sum of its parts.

Do not hesitate to ask us anything through email, dwell into deep discussion on forums (SFF Forum, Sweclockers, Overclockers UK, PCPartPicker and Reddit) or comment on our latest social media posts (Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter).

Risks and challenges

All deviations and unexpected scenarios will be reported across all platforms straight away (social media and forums), we have done this thus far and will continue doing so going forward. That said, we consider precise shipping dates to be the biggest risk and will do everything we can to deliver according to the specified timeline. Additionally, we are extremely careful with excess spending; hence, in the very unlikely event that this project becomes to difficult to complete we will most likely have majority of the funds left for refunds.
