    Concept Hybrid Transformer One - Portable modular All-in-One system

    I think a 18.4" display will be problematic as it's not a common monitor size. CMIIW the core concept for this project is not to 'fit the most powerful components possible' but to enable users to customize their Convertible-PC with off-the-shelf components. An uncommon monitor size IMO is a...

    Concept Hybrid Transformer One - Portable modular All-in-One system

    Considering this case/machine setup won't likely be cheap and targeted at those who know and appreciate computers and its components, I suggest just go full blown mechanical keyboard. That way the keycaps are replaceable, fitting with the overall concept of a full-customizable notebook.

    Concept Hybrid Transformer One - Portable modular All-in-One system

    Looks absolutely brilliant. This form factor might turn out to be the natural evolution of SFF: balancing between true portability (which laptops have) and customizability (which desktops have). My two cents would be to thoroughly consider the keyboard and monitor, as they are the two things in...

    Production Observer Slim

    Looking nice and sleek! Are three screws enough stability for the HDD/SSD? Considering it's going to be put upright as well.

    Prototype The world most flexible SFF case? LOUQE Ghost S1

    You should add the Kickstarter link on LOUQE.com website. I went there to look for a way to back but couldn't find anything.

    Prototype The world most flexible SFF case? LOUQE Ghost S1

    Since we're discussing TopHats, I personally believe the Ghost S1 only needs the option of a 28.5mm M-Tophat. One hat for extra fans and drives, two stacked hats for a radiator. Not that I'm complaining about more options, but a single type like this should be much easier for the LOUQE guys to...

    Completed MJOLNIR: The minimalistic – but not boring – 9.7L Case

    57 screws seems pretty insane, especially for a unibody design. Not only it potentially complicates the building process, it also can turn into a logistical nightmare for you. I can understand 11 screws for these: 4 for the PSU 4 for the Motherboard 2 for the PCIe Riser 1 for the GPU Bracket...

    Looking for advice on a build in a Jonsbo U1 PLUS case

    I've built inside the V3+ which probably has the worst airflow of all their cases, and even then I could still game pretty well (albeit using a lower-heat GPU). Compared to that case the U1 Plus is heavenly. I'm sure your 570 will do just fine.

    Looking for advice on a build in a Jonsbo U1 PLUS case

    I've built inside Jonsbo many times before (for me and for my friends) and I've got to say that the company tends to make their cases looks first temps later. That doesn't mean it's bad, though. Cooling can be adequate as long as you plan for it. Here are a few things you can (and should) do...

    Prototype The world most flexible SFF case? LOUQE Ghost S1

    Have there been any tests to see if the case is overall cooler with top-pull bottom-push fan orientation?

    Newegg Corsair Bulldog (comes with Z170, 600W SFX Power Supply, Liquid Cooler)

    I remember @Aibohphobia testing the H5 and it had pretty good temps (compared to a Noctua L9x65 IIRC?) but was so loud he had to return it in the end.

    Prototype The world most flexible SFF case? LOUQE Ghost S1

    I'm pretty sure dual 120 AIO is in the < 5% minority. Experimenting with a more common setup is better worth your budget. For example ... acrylic / tempered glass side panel? That'll get a lot of attention.

    Prototype The world most flexible SFF case? LOUQE Ghost S1

    Does this case support 2x 120mm AIOs instead of 1x 240mm ? Thinking of a dual-AIO setup with a Vega 64 Liquid and an L tophat :)

    Newegg Corsair Bulldog (comes with Z170, 600W SFX Power Supply, Liquid Cooler)

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-139-079 Worth it even if you hate the case (which isn't SFF by definition). The Corsair H5 is a pretty good cooler too!
