    The Riotoro Morpheus is a modular and expandable PC case that can convert from a mATX size to full tower by moving a few panels. But it also ships in pieces and going through the assembly process is certainly interesting. :P

Only use case scenario I can think of for now is when you can't afford custom water cooling when you buy the main components and want to watercool later. Hence the height difference for when you want to put a thick rad with push/pull config. Switching between housing an ITX system and ATX is just... too gimmick-y right now. I can't think of any person who would switch system on a daily basis to justify it. It would make a lot more sense to just buy two cases. Especially at that price point.

can you NOT put the tray panel on the opposite side of the case for a regular mounting (not upside down ) ? I have a case that does the 90 deg rotation to the mb tray but goes onto either side depending on if you want upside down or regular mount . Odd they didnt do that (or you missed it ?) . Looks nice though but at that price point it should have some higher quality fans , include the rgb hub and not make it optional (that's just being too cheap). For a modular type case they sure cut off a lot of options like only being able to mount 120mm rads etc ? come on now they can do so much better than this . cheers and thanks for a great vid as always .

Dmirty, I find myself agreeing with you completely here. I love the idea of a modular system that has myriad customisation options, and it's good to see that there are case designers out there experimenting and pushing in that direction. However, this does seem to a be rather halfhearted attempt, as you say; 6cm difference in height between the two configurations is not worth the price premium here. It's probably worth noting that Riotoro market this as a 'convertible' case and the word 'modular' doesn't appear anywhere on the product page, so we are perhaps expecting a little too much from it. Even so, there are a lot of improvements that could be made, both aesthetic and functional: 1. The top and bottom panels should either be identical, or at least interchangeable, so you aren't stuck with the inverted layout (MB tray fixed only to the rear with identical mounts for top and bottom?). 2. The front panel should have far more options than just that fan holder; the product shots look terrible with the off-centre fans shining through. Why not a 4x 120/140mm grid, or at least the two fans centred with the logo (either up/down or left/right)? Is the 200mm fan mount at least centred over the logo? 2a. There should really be enough room behind the front panel in both configurations to give a ridiculous number of options. 2b. Why is the motherboard tray extending all the way to the front panel? Why have so many cable pass-through points in an open-air case? 3. The three-piece side panels seem like a waste in the short configuration. The top and bottom nearly meet anyway, so why not have them joined by a small bridge and then add in the middle panel when converting into tall mode? It would also mean the magnetic dust filters would be the same in both configurations. 4. Including the RGB/Fan controls on the front I/O but not including the controller or compatible fans... at this price point... 5. An option for a wide configuration would be nice, too. It could be as simple as having feet that can attach to either side panel and the ability to rotate the logo easily, or take it further with more customisation. I'm a big fan of 'cube' cases, and full width/depth/height configuration would be a dream come true. Thinking about it, #2 could be addressed by having interchangeable MB trays. Either include an ATX/mATX as stock and sell an E-ATX separately for the three people who'd need it. Or go all the way and make separate trays for ITX, mATX, ATX, E-ATX. You would then be able to make better use of the space at the front of the case for more radiator/fan options. I'm running a Core V21, which has some interesting 'modular' features: the interchangeable side panels; stacking multiple cases together; the fan rails. Not that I've made all that much use of those features: I run a single case with horizontal motherboard and the window on the side. It's also the largest case I could possibly fit in the space my PC resides. The Streacom cases you've looked at are closer to what I'd call a modular system, with their rail mounts for everything. I'd love to see a larger version of the DA2, or a smaller F12C. Oh, and keep up the 2:1 video :)

Riotoro cr1080 is my favorite case bought 3 of them. They deserve more credit just take a look at its amazon reviews. The case I love because of it being the most compact atx case with room for dvd drive along with tons of hdd ssd drives. I agree the modular one may not be for most but through and through Riotoro is a company with love for the enthusiasts.

I don't know why you'd want a case that changes size. Modularity in cases is to allow different arrangements of the components in the interior. So unless the change in size is to allow different arrangements then it's good. Otherwise, it's just a gimmick.

Another great video! All the time spent on the review of the case and I have a comment about the fans. LOL It's a nice looking case, but it seems to have a lot of wasted space, like you mentioned. I love the addressable RGB fans that Enermax puts with their AIOs. I wish they sold them separately. I even sent them an e-mail over a month ago and heard nothing back on if they were going to make them available by themselves.

​+HardwareCanucks, I'm sorry, I should have been more clear. The 5v addressable RGB fans are included with their AIOs and the fans that I'd like to see available by themselves. The 12v RGB fans that they do offer in the sets of 3 and 6 were actually in the running when I was looking for fans. I ended up going with the Silverstone FG122 5v RGB fan frames and the Arctic Bionix F120 fans. The combination looks awesome with the fan frames behind the fans (between the fans and mounting points) diffusing the lighting a little bit more than just the frosted ring. The fans are really good performance wise also. Plus they have a 10 year warranty. Thank you for your response. You are one of very few that actually take the time to do so. I appreciate that very much.

Kind of wish they also made the legs modular. This would allow the case to be set up horizontally kind as if it was a rackmount. I like the way Thermaltake does modularity with the Core v1. All panels are exchangeable, and the motherboard can be mounted vertically or horizontally.

They need a modular case, that can remove a portion of the case depth to have a very slim case, with a custom gpu mount to still have access to its full rear I/O. I've been modding my cases to mount the GPU vertically, and closer to the front.If the PSU were mounted sideways, then I could literally have half of the case depth and use the same hardware, but smaller fans. I might have to ghetto mod a case one day to show the concept.

Definitely an innovative idea, and applause to Riotoro for taking the first steps. However, unless I was swapping back and forth between ATX and MicroATX mobos every other week, I could never see myself utilizing both sizes of the case. I can see this being nice for someone who builds a lot of systems, but I feel like a test bench would be just as feasible for them. As for more traditional consumers that generally upgrade their system a lot less frequently, a fixed-size case would be a better buy in my opinion, especially given that you pay a premium for the expandability feature of the case.

A first step but a fail. EATX MB support yet no 360 Radiator capability? Maybe a combination of this along with how Thermaltake and Coolermaster do things. A compact relatively cheaper mini MATX form factor that can be expanded up to a full tower ATX. Then maybe have a few choice accessories if people want to add such as psu shroud and windowed side panel. Holes in the side can take adapter standoff/screws to mount anything from motherboard to drives , fans , radiators , resevoir or pump.
