Lazer3D’s highly-customisable LZ7 Mini-ITX Case has arrived

Up and coming UK-based PC case manufacturer, Lazer3D, is launching its new ultra-customisable small form factor chassis this week exclusively with Overclockers UK. The Lazer3D LZ7 is designed to be thermally efficient and provide user choice and freedom when it comes to installing hardware.

The LZ7 measures in at just over 7 litres in volume, making it one of the smallest chassis on the market. Still, it can pack some serious hardware, with ITX graphics cards up to 186mm in length being supported. With that level of support, you could take advantage of some powerful graphics cards, including mini-ITX versions of the GTX 1070 from Gigabyte or MSI. There is 360 degree GPU ventilation and room for slim 140mm fans, as well as a CPU cooler up to 67mm tall. At that size, you could use a cooler like the Cryorig C7 or the Noctua NH-L12.

You can get a good look at the case in the gallery below. Keep in mind that if you are an adblock user, you may have trouble seeing the images as they tend to interfere with our gallery tool.

Lazer3D’s cases are designed and manufactured right here in the UK, so a good number of customisation options are available, giving you the chance tailor your LZ7 case to your specific needs. Each panel and corner column can be changed and you can add various accessories as required. You can pick all of the components and colours to have your LZ7 suit you.

KitGuru Says: I’ve been interested in putting together a small form factor system for some time now, though I’ve yet to pull the trigger. It can certainly be an expensive endeavour. Are any of you planning a SFF build at the moment?

    Can’t tell if the price is expensive because the RRP is that high, or it’s just the typical overpriced OCUK.

    I like how colour customisable it is, though.

  • Mark Lahn

    The problem is that these ultra small form factor PCs are made only in small batches, so production costs are through the roof. I’m sure OCUK wants their cut too, but they’re probably not the main culprit.

  • Matt Booth

    I think I figured it out anyway, the colour options for basically every part of the case won’t be cheap to do and especially when offering it in a modular way.

  • Rob ‘Emrys’ Brown

    Yup, parts arrive tomorrow, first time I’ve gone mini-itx personally. Can’t wait to get building.

  • Lelisevis

    I’ve often wondered who lives in such a small house or is so physically weak that they need a case this small. Joking aside, as an engineering exercise it’s great but the compromises and stresses you place on any hardware placed in a case like this are just not worth it, thermal throttling will definitely become an issue. Still kudos for innovation.

  • Lelisevis

    The emperor would approve. You’ll need the patience of a Tech-Priest. Have you gone all one colour or have you mixed it up a bit?

  • Rob ‘Emrys’ Brown

    I always seek the Emperor’s blessing in all things, like a true Son of Corax, I shall be continuing to pay homage to Black, Black and more Black.

  • Rob ‘Emrys’ Brown

    Joking aside, depending on how well you can build, and the parts you use, thermal throttling doesn’t have to be an issue. I’ve done a number of ITX builds for friends and colleagues over the last few years, and not experienced a thermal blocker.

    Granted, I’ve not gone nano though, just mini. I appreciate that nano would bring in more limitations, which is probably why I’ve not gone that route at all.

    For reference, todays build will be:

    Asus ROG Z270i,
    Asus ROG 1080Ti Strix,
    16GB G.Skill Trident,
    Be Quiet 280mm Silent Loop,
    Corsair RM 1K PSU
    Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Mini-ITX Chassis
    + some M.2 and SSD’s.

  • Lelisevis

    Sorry that was my fault I wasn’t clear, just with them mentioning cards like the mini itx GTX1070, that thing is borderline maximum temperature in a open/ATX case, in something like this it would be choking like an asthmatic ant on a ultra marathon.

    I have the TG Matx version ( mine below), did you get the new tempered glass edition? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/922ffdf3e3d1a79cc973fbd4e45c27508aa94cf6228b5dc97fd8ead9caea271b.jpg
