    Production Modivio xCase - customizable console-style case

    I'm onto my 2nd Modivio case. I had Matt make me a "half-sized" xCase S for only a mini-ITX board as I'm building a computer around a Ryzen 5 3400g with integrated Vega 11. My AMD Asus ROG MB has been working great but the Noctua NH-L9a cooler only allows it to be mounted one way as the...

    Great build. Let me know how your strap holds up. I was thinking of doing the same thing but had concerns the weight of the PC would be too great for the case/PC. Also, where did you get the hook?

    Production Modivio xCase - customizable console-style case

    Here's a picture of the Gigabyte 1050 in a custom xCase that is smaller than the S. The HDPLEX 160W will fit with room to spare.

    MODIVIO xCase S BUILD Here the my build notes for the Modivio xCase S. My goal was to build a "stylish" and silent build. I accomplished what I had set out to do. I got the SFF bug and have progressed to an Elite 130 --> Elite 110 --> SG13 --> SG05 --> hacked down SG05 to 7.5L -->Modivio...

    Production Modivio xCase - customizable console-style case

    FIT and QUALITY Before I get to the build, I'd like to provide my comments on FIT and QUALITY. I should mention that if you expect a "flawless" perfectly smooth finish of the bezel, you might be disappointed. It is not an injection molded part. It is not perfectly smooth. It is a 3D printed...

    Look what I got today! Here is the unboxing of my custom sized xCase. Size: 340 x 200 x 66 mm or 4.49 L. Colour: White Bezel with Matte Side Panels The packaging was excellent. Really, have not seen anything this well packed! I'll share more on the build in a later post. Still...

    HDPlex 160W AC-DC News!

    Was sooo happy to get my HDPLEX order in the mail today. All the components look like great quality however was really disappointed with the 7.4x5mm connector with only a single screw mount. The site shows a double screw mount which I believe will be more durable in the long run. Is it...

    Matt, Can you tell me where you sourced the cables used in this photo below? I want to use customized cabling in my xCase S for a cleaner look. Your cables look very clean without sleaves. Hopefully my xCase S ships soon.

    Where can I find dimensions for the HDPLEX connectors? I'm planning for a build and may use an external power source or mounting the power supply in the case. What are the dimensions for the "3 prong plug" for the 160W PS and mounting screws. Secondly what is the dimensions for the 7.4x5mm...

    Production Modivio xCase - customizable console-style case

    Matt, I think you killed it with the white version. Looks very contemporary. Doesn't even look like a computer case. That sold me and I have put in my order. Look for a build thread in the near future.

    Production Modivio xCase - customizable console-style case

    Couple of questions on the PCI-Riser Cable. Has anyone else sourced out other risers on AliExpress or other manufacturers? Li-Heat type B - 300mm costs $65 USD shipped which is 2/3 the cost of the small Modivio case I'm looking at purchasing. For the graphics card faced down, Li-Heat doesn't...

    Thanks. I’m also sourcing out an external power supply. Found one locally that is 135w and 19V that will work with the 7.4mm x 5 mm DC jack. Are all power supplies the same polarity?

    HDPlex 160W AC-DC News!

    I'm doing some research for an SFF computer case. I will be using an HDPLEX 160W power supply. What is the running temperature of the power supply at "idle" and "game mode"? I'm running an Asus Z370-I MB with an I3-8100 and 1050ti video card. The information will help me determine if I need...

    Production Modivio xCase - customizable console-style case

    Matt has been very accommodating in providing me a customized quote to fit my needs. I have most of the components for my SFF build and now trying to find the right case. What's holding me back right now is the cost/shipping of the PCI-E riser puts the cost of Modivio cases closer to other...
