    Prototyping CONSOLE and CONSWOLE: entry level 2-slot and 3-slot console cases!

    Hmm no immediate idea, I assume you are controlling fan speed for both. I would run Cinebench a few times (with CPU-Z or HWiNFO showing all cores running to see clock speed is holding} after each clock adjustment, before running AIDA64, just to make sure the performance is matching what you...

    Prototyping CONSOLE and CONSWOLE: entry level 2-slot and 3-slot console cases!

    Console looking great, but that rust finish is stealing the show. Would lend itself to a steampunky build... (don't tempt me, too many builds 😭)

    Production SFFtime presents: P-ATX, the 9L case with ATX and AIO support!

    Yes, a couple of weeks ago riba mentioned if someone wanted to order as early as possible, so I asked specifically about unpainted or imperfect cases, since I'd be repainting it for a thematic color scheme. It might take me a week or three to get that done, so likely I'll only have mine ready by...

    Got my case 😎 Shipping and packing were excellent. I knew it was going to be a slim case, but it looks longer/taller than you would expect in person (which it should, since it can accommodate ATX boards with that low volume). Very cool, and not going to take up much desk space. Will post pics...

    Off Topic "SFF" Keyboards

    Just finished soldering this up. WhiteFox case and PCB, Gateron Ink switches, and dark grey Varmilo PBT switches. Need more time with the switches, but I think I like them: they have a poppy sound and feel to them, while being fairly smooth and quiet. Have a Topre-like quality to them.

    Yeah, nylon for instance will. Been looking at this for some of my projects versus ceramic coating (cerakote).

    Prototyping My DIY lasercut Sandwich Style replica xD

    Excellent work! Looks very professional, and well ventilated. What did you use for the black coating, anodization or paint?

    Case looks so good in black (and I'm sure aluminum as well, even from prototype pics the raw silver color is gorgeous) that I almost feel bad I'm going to be doing this to it for "Zen-chan" build :p:

    Prototyping CONSOLE and CONSWOLE: entry level 2-slot and 3-slot console cases!

    Oh, right, forgot the C1 is 74mm one. Yeah that should perform well. Also realized Noctua L12S should fit. That would be one of the better compatibility options in the 60mm to 75mm height range.

    Prototyping CONSOLE and CONSWOLE: entry level 2-slot and 3-slot console cases!

    Other options: Alpenfohn Black Ridge, Scythe Big Shuriken 3, Cryorig C7 Cu/G, Thermalright AXP-100, ID-Cooling IS-60, Noctua L9x65, and Cooler Master GeminII M5. Maybe in that order, hard to say. C1 would likely be in L9 (55mm version) territory, and Pallas would be higher up in performance...

    360mm AIO SFF weirdos ruining things for the rest of us. What, a 240mm or 280mm not good enough? :P

    It's custom, which is a perk of contributing. Which reminds me, I need to re-up...

    Introduction Creating Tomorrows SFF Case

    You're not Platypus on AnandTech by any chance, are you? (if so, Crono waves :P) Took the survey. 😎

    Production SFFtime presents: P-ATX, the 9L case with ATX and AIO support!

    Starting to look at parts, though it might be a while before I start the build proper. Any compatibility issues with below? Particularly GPU, which is 2.3 slot. Will likely go with a true 2 slot 1660 Ti or Super if so. Case: SFFTime P-ATX (obviously) Mobo: MSI B450M MORTAR TITANIUM CPU: Ryzen...
