This raw steel version of the Monument is intended for customers who want to do their own finishing, or want to work with a vendor to do custom plating/ painting.
The steel will eventually develop surface rust due to inevitable exposure to moisture and grease from hands.
The edges are slightly sharp and should be handled carefully.
We remove metal dust and residue, but parts will likely have a thin layer of surface oil that helps prevent rust.
We take no responsibility for rusting or discoloration that arises during shipping, nor any rust that develops after the product is received by the customer.
As of 2021, we have moved from a majority of threaded holes to pressure inserted standoffs. Please note that the pictures displayed are from a previous production iteration. Your Raw Steel Motif Monument will not ship with standoffs.
If you do your own custom painting or plating, take care to protect the threaded holes on the chassis so standoffs can be properly installed on the final product.
All sales are final.
The Motif Monument is an open PC chassis for Mini-ITX motherboards designed and built in the USA. The purpose of this design is to present small form factor components in a simple and elegant configuration. The finished build is meant to function as a showpiece computer without sacrificing performance potential.
This case is a project kit designed for an advanced PC builder who has experience and familiarity with the potential challenges of custom PC building. Potential compatibility limitations may include, but are not limited to, choice of cpu cooler, cooler orientation, RAM height, GPU length and slot width (2 slot preferred). The chassis is designed to specifically accommodate M.2 SSDs, as opposed to other storage formats. An SFX PSU and custom PSU cables are required to utilize this case successfully
