    DAN C4-SFX - Update 28.06.2020

    Not for the usage I'm planning. If width gets over 135mm I would prefer the NCase M1 or the Ghost S1

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 28.06.2020

    I don't doubt this is going to be good SFF case, but I see it's another mid-size-SFF that focus on supporting multiple modes rather than be optimized for one specific purpose. As result it got fat 14.5mm (30mm thicker than A4). So it's a compact case, but again will not be very portable. I was...

    Motherboard X570 ITX Motherboard Review Thread.

    Thanks Rich, The info you pointed out was pretty much the source of my confusion :) But if I got it right there's no difference between "3.2 Gen2" & "3.1 Gen2", they should both be at 10Gbps And the 20Gbps apparently isn't just "3.2 Gen2" but "3.2 Gen2x2", which as far as my research goes is...

    Motherboard X570 ITX Motherboard Review Thread.

    Guys, do you know what's are the speeds of the (fast) usb ports on the Gigabyte's x570 ITX MoBo? There seems to be some chaos with the usb versioning (incl. on their own docs) so I'm not sure if there's a USB 3.2 (ie gen 2) port with a 20Gbps speed, or if it's only a gen1 and thus 10Gbps only.

    Concept 5.37L Aluminum extrusion Frame

    Finally the last parts (MoBo & RAM) arrived! Here's a preview of (almost) everything I should put together inside the blue aluminium frame. There's no place inside for the reservoir :) So it'll be detachable thru the QuickDisconnectCouplings around it. Also my initial frame plan was for...

    Concept 5.37L Aluminum extrusion Frame

    Congrats! I'm curious to see some benchmarks with that 90-degree pcie bridge (if it has performance hit or not) What was the CPU you're using? Looks great! Cheers!

    Concept 5.37L Aluminum extrusion Frame

    Is this the new AsRock z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/AC? How is it OC-ing? And with what CPU?

    Concept 5.37L Aluminum extrusion Frame

    I wouldn't mess around the PSU, because I don't know the 1st thing about it (except which cable goes where) That's why I got the Corsair SF600 Platinum (should arrive any day now) I hope you know what you're doing there! Good Luck with the mod!

    Concept 5.37L Aluminum extrusion Frame

    Btw I think these benchmarks are the ones (Un)Principled Technologies made, and probably even the 1st set (ie the worst - as in artificially slowing AMD's CPUs). It's very true that 9900K is completely pointless for gaming (unless you really want some extra frames at 1080p for super high fps and...

    Concept 5.37L Aluminum extrusion Frame

    Here's the main-frame (get it? ;)) of my MakeBlocks alu-case: I'll have to add a middle "backbone" beams with few small plates to mount Mobo, GPU & water-pump to. The beige 15mm (1.53 mm H2O) fans (NF-A12x15 PWM) are on bottom for general case coolness 8) And right under the black 25mm (3.94...

    Production Nouvolo Steck - SFF 8.7-11.2L ITX PC Case, supports liquid cooling

    Just to share my opinion (which is perfectly fine if you disagree): It's an obvious clone of the Louqe Ghost S1. This would be fine with me if there were some improvements. Such improvements in my opinion would be: - Weight reduction. Louqe S1 and this case weight exactly the same 2.5kg w/o...

    Concept 5.37L Aluminum extrusion Frame

    Btw, I ordered two types of construction kits (parts picked by me - not out-of-the-box kits) Makerbeam-1010 (they also have larger profiles 1515, but I need the smallest available), and the MakeBlock. They're both good, and if you know exactly which and how many parts you'll need won't be too...

    Prototype Aluminium GPU Waterblocks

    Hi guys, I'm designing a custom m-itx case (10~11L) with full (CPU & GPU) water cooling, and since portability & thus weight are important for me I'm planning to use full-aluminium loop like the one from EK's FluidGaming series. However my current GPU (Gigabyte: GV-N1080XTREME-8GD-PP) is...

    SFF.Network The first Intel Z390 board has been revealed, by ASRock

    Looks perfect! Any chance it will support 64GB of G.Skill's Trident new double-capacity ddr4 ram? (is that specific to Asus+G.Skill?)

    Prototype The world most flexible SFF case? LOUQE Ghost S1

    Didn't know that :/ Thanks for the info & pics though!
