    Concept Is grounding DC in SFF PC required?

    Will do! Really excited to share the design, but want it as close to the final version as possible before I do so.

    Concept Is grounding DC in SFF PC required?

    Hi SFFMunkee, Thank you very much for taking the time out to reply - really appreciated! Thanks also for the useful link - it'll take me a few reads through to understand it, but it looks like it does a good job of describing the principles at play. From other resources, I get the impression...

    Concept Is grounding DC in SFF PC required?

    Hi all, I'm hoping someone out there has the knowledge and/or experience to answer my query or at least point me in the direction of someone who can! I've tried looking into this using a website called 'Google' (if you haven't heard of it, it's a bit like AskJeeves, but will probably never catch...

    Completed SMPL - 3.9L Case "Ikea-Style"

    Hi, Really interesting build! What cpu are you using? I'm about to try the 1650 Super with the 160XT pico psu, but not sure if I would be pushing it too hard with an Intel i5 6500.

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    Hi Newtothegame, Thanks very much for your interest and well wishes for the project. I'm hoping that the boxy look will appeal to all the Volvo drivers out there :)! But you're quite right - the 'straight' edge design was initially the result of my own limitations in constructing earlier...

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    Would either need to be supplied with a pretty strong adhesive or safety goggles!

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    Hi Hoka Hey, Thanks for your comments. The fans are 80 mm. One of my main objectives behind designing the case as it currently stands is to avoid the need for side fans and ventilation. This has resulted in the need for the 2 front fans only when paired with the slightly non-standard approach...

    There should be space for a grill over the fan if curiosity is likely to get the better of you which shouldn't impede air flow too much.

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    That's a good point - I might try and create a post detailing some of the steps I've had to go through which as you say, might be helpful for others going down the same route (particularly in the UK).

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    Hi Windfall, It's ticking over, but nothing major at the moment I'm afraid! I've made some minor design tweaks and now have the prototype in CAD ready for CNC production (the prototype photographed was for the most part hand-built). I'm hoping to have the first CNC'd prototype ready over the...

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    Hi JDragon, Thanks for your comment. Slightly surprisingly, there have been a couple of people interested in a larger variants of the case (I was anticipating the case having a place in the <5 litre niche) - a variant with 2 x 120 mm fans would probably be close to the top of the list and follow...

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    Hi Analogue Blacksheep. Thanks for your questions. In response: 1. Yes. I had initially started the project with the aim to have a system I could easily fit into a small rucksack. I have also recently had a discussion with a friend who is an upholsterer about making a custom sized neoprene carry...

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    Hi Sumdumdad, Thanks for your interest. I'd certainly be happy to produce a different size variant if there was enough demand or alternatively (although I'm not exactly sure what it would entail or know the implications to final costings) could have an option for a custom size based on the same...

    Prototype Worst idea ever? A slightly different SFF case: the G-Design GD47

    Hi, Thanks for your comment. There seem to be a few comments relating to the fan grills, and seeing as the case lends itself quite well to customisation, this is a really great idea!

    Hi Windfall, Thanks for your interest and comment. I'm planning on providing more details when I'm close to my first production run, but I'll refer you to my response to ignsvn for the reasoning behind this:
