    Dude the Dan Case A4 is 7.2L and the Ghost S1 in its smallest configuration is 8.2L. If you thinking the Ghost is small enough, the Dan A4 is smaller.

    A Guide to 12V PSU

    Exactly what I saw thinking. But you'd have one pin unused (12vsb) when using a 24pin, and then only 9 pins used with the ATX12VO cable. Am I understanding it correctly? @Thehack, If you wanted to adapt your ATX 24pin DCPB to this new standard and make it 10pin, how much work would it be to add...

    A Guide to 12V PSU

    So the only "new" pin in this design is the +12Vsb, otherwise all the other pins already exist on the current 24-pin. Interesting, this might mean that PSUs could be "dual mode" in the future if designed for it, which means traditional PSUs could be compatible with 12VO motherboards, but...

    If you can fit the Velka 3 is the smallest "simple" option. Note that you will need a FlexATX PSU, not SFX. Also I don't know of the C7 will fit in the Velka 3 - you may have to go Noctua L9a, not that that's a bad thing. The Dan Case A4 is orderable right now on Caseking, I believe. That would...

    Advice on CPU cooler?

    The Noctua C14S is the best air cooler for the NCase M1. recently there's been a bunch of testing on this, it handily outperforms the U9S and the PR Slim.

    A Guide to 12V PSU

    So is the 10-pin connector for the daughter board with the PCIe slots? It looks like the NUC Element board itself uses an 8-pin EPS as its power input, nothing proprietary. Where was the standard published? I hope this becomes a thing - there are already lots of server-ish ITX boards that allow...

    A Guide to 12V PSU

    So I guess I missed this during CES, but this might be of interest to folks in this thread: FSP introduces new 12V only PSU Apparently this is a PSU that will support some "upcoming Intel standard" which uses a 10pin connector with just 12V and 12vsb. I wonder what boards this is for, but it's...

    HELP Needed choosing quietest and best fitting GPU in NCASE M1 V6

    Of the ones you listed the Windforce cards would probably be the best coolers followed by the EVGA cards. There are larger cards that fit in the NCase M1 and have even better coolers (the Asus 2080 ti Strix comes to mind) but stay waway from a blower card if you want quiet.

    Production SV590 and SV540 - Vertical SFF Cases! [SV590 live Monday Nov 25th]

    No, tubes that come out the top of the block (like this or the EVGA or Fractal Design CLCs) generally don't work in cases with low CPU cooler clearance. Stick with tubes or ports that are on the side of the block.
