Silverstone's Lucid, logical choice for an small enclosure?

The Lucid LD01 from Silverstone is designed for small form factor builds as the largest motherboard it can fit is microATX.  That small size does not preclude decent cooling, you can install a pair of 120/140mm fans at the front and top, as well as additional single 120/140mm fans at the bottom and the rear, or similar sized slim radiators. TechPowerUp liked the look of the tempered glass outside as well as the many included features such as the GPU bracket but they would have like the USB-C plug to support USB 3.1 Gen 2.

"The Lucid LD01 from Silverstone tries to ditch the plastic and move to a mix relying heavily on steel and tempered glass for an understated high quality look and feel. It clearly caters to those who'd like to transcend the classic use of steel and plastic panels and want simple but effective, functional designs and features. "

Good that Silverstone keeps the inverted layout. I am sad to see that it is quite a bit larger (about 6 litres) than the venerable (and with its three external slots rather dated) Temjin TJ-08E, but on the other hand the Temjin isn't really that practical for beefy watercooling, so choose your poison...
