    Concept J-Hack Pure Mk2 APU case

    As a long time Pure owner, I don't see the need for any changes. The style and size are great, everything works well for me. Some may want USB on the front panel, I feel the case is small enough to quickly get to the back and plug in a USB. I have 2 m2 SSD drives which are more than enough for...

    He also forgot to hook up the ground wire on the power supply. That bothered me!

    I apologize but can't render a judgment on the C7 as I don't own it. The C7 may cool better as it is 10 mm taller, but many reviews claim Noctua has quieter fans. For what I am using the Pure as (HTPC for video streaming and light gaming) the Noctua Nh L9a is ideal. I rarely hear the fan and the...

    I have really enjoy how compact and attractive this case looks. Have used it for the past 6 months and have found it perfect for my needs. Just wanted to give a heads up to those using the Noctua NH L9a, the 92mm fan shroud 10 mm height from J-Hack's website fits like a charm and although I...

    J-Hack Pure or MX500 case

    It all depends on your personal taste and budget. I bought the Pure and love it. The Mx 500 says it is a fanless case, I find that for gaming a cooler with fan is needed. You may also want to check out his Meanwell 200W power supply kit and Pcie to M.2 MVNE adapter.

    If anyone wants to use the MSI B450I Gaming motherboard the cable for the power switch available from J-Hack (right now) are too short to reach the connector in the back left corner of the case without running it over the CPU fan. Don't let that deter you from buying this excellent case and...

    No problem I appreciate your trying to help. I found this cable and may cut off the switches and use the two wires for power and led and use my existing switch.

    No, that is for a fan. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N4HZRWX/?tag=theminutiae-20 But the wire is almost twice as long and has a few extra connecters. I will keep looking as I find time. Thanks for looking!

    I have been thinking of doing a splice on the wires, but hate the thought, even though it would be hidden out of sight. For now it is working well. I will first look around for a switch with a couple more inches of length. No worries, there is no way for you to anticipate all motherboard designs.

    Thanks for the comment on my build! I am sorry, I haven't built anything with RAID, others on this forum are much more knowledgeable than me.
