    CPU New uSFF Motherboard - i7-9750H and 2060/2070 - and it's a Dell!

    This is a laptop motherboard according to the description. The shape is more "regular" than what we are expecting from a laptop motherboard though.

    Motherboard Interesting OEM Motherboard with embedded navi10 spotted

    Today I've seen a picture of this motherboard(Chinese source): We can see an AM4 socket but no chipset, so something like A300/X300, PCH-less design. The GPU onboard looks like a navi10(RX 5700 Series), and the CPU/GPU mounting is kind of weird, no mounting holes near GPU at all, and only 2...

    Motherboard strange choices in asrock x570 mini itx TB3 can someone explain why to me?

    Unlikely if you are using PCIE3.0 SSDs, as the connection between chipset and the CPU is theoretically equal to the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0 x8

    Motherboard strange choices in asrock x570 mini itx TB3 can someone explain why to me?

    I think it might because of the limited space on the pcb

    News Thermalright showcases a copper 47mm heatsink prototype

    This is the photo for the prototype, and the production version will have mirror-surface base, not the one in this photo. Very interested in this, a potential rival to LP53 and C7 Cu.

    Part Idea Request: Right angle SATA port right next to PSU. Need to connect a 2.5" Drive.

    It's a Silverstone SX650-G. I did not do anything else. The psu appears to be a slightly off from the top frame, but you can mount it with fewer screws, like 3 or 2, as some of the wholes are still aligned.

    Part Idea Request: Right angle SATA port right next to PSU. Need to connect a 2.5" Drive.

    Well, by using the port at this position, I did make it work. This is the pic I uploaded to another forum explaining this.

    Part PCIe 4.0 and riser cables beware.......

    But this is not always the case. Rome servers are coming and there ARE PCIe4 bases systems. Risers/NVMe cables are widely used in those servers. We may see those pcie accessories coming soon, but don't expect them to be cheap. There are some 100Gbe dual port NICs already based on PCIe Gen4.

    I'm in the same situation as yours. Just mount the psu with the screw that will fit in the whole. and you will be fine. Use the port that is further to the top of the case will make it easier to mount the psu.

    Need guidance for SFF Ryzen (3900X ?) mini ITX build - how do I get small, cool and quiet ?

    You have to prioritize the most important aspect to you, small? cool? or quiet? Because for most of the time, you cannot get all of them when you are using powerful components. Small and Cool usually turns out to be a very loud configuration(very high rpm fan in action); Cool and quiet usually...

    Why mainstream sff is so big?

    sg13s are cheap as hell, and the quality is not so good though the design is quite efficient.

    SFF.Network Computex 2019 – ASUS

    I will probably go for the Asrock offering, the Thunderbolt is quite useful to me, at least I could add 10GbE to it. I think such high speed external bus is one of the most optimal usage of the PCIe lanes for as sff PC.

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

    Open air GPUs usually do not perform better in such a small case. Due to the limited airflow in the case, the exhaust of those cards cannot be removed from the case fast enough and the ambient temperature in the case will go up because of that. Blowers push exhaust directly out of the case.
