    Completed The MI-6 Microtower Case: Performance in 6.7L

    Shame production ended as it was a fairly unique proposition. Taobao is your best bet for a clone, the 6.7l ZS-A4L stands out and the maker has recently joined No front IO unfortunately. ZS A4L v2

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    The New UI Doesn't Easily Let You See Which Threads You've Read

    Fingers crossed. The lack of link or jump to unread posts is a real backward step. Extra faff is a real put off.

    Power Supply Recommended Flex ATX PSU - What should I be buying?

    Looks like they've replaced the fan. The Noctua 40mm is a good option.

    Concept Different uSFF idea with Flex ATX psu --> Flexpy

    I think the layout has merit, but the pi thing only works if you hit the 3.14L size, which you may struggle with. Plus I can't imagine the airflow and temps would be very good with that design.

    Stalled Alpha Cases - T7 SFX - Sub 5L

    Looking forward to seeing how this progresses. This form factor is becoming increasingly popular - Hahutzy, CustomMod Flex, ZS-A4M, Loli2 and others. Some thoughts: 1, As above think about a front vent for the GPU. Similar to the ZS-A4M and L7. There is an observation in a CustomMod thread...

    Other What's on Taobao

    That's a real shame, I was really tempted by the ZS-A4M. Looks great in the pictures. Here is an alternative - the Loli2. A fraction smaller, closer in size to Hahutzy's XS. Silver also available.

    Production cases FX mini by Custom_MOD

    Production cases FX mini by Custom_MOD

    The 40mm fan is a concern. There are quieter 40mm replacement fans out there and some PSUs with 80mm fans. Personally I'm waiting to see actual photos/builds of your cases before ordering.
