Because of a couple issues with the gpu, we had to change around the entire layout. It now doesn't have the issues anymore you talked about. The size is 0.06L larger though, at 3.75L. Not a big deal I hope. I will share pictures when it's done.
About to order some itx components so I can finally build in the X1. Build will be transferred to all 3 cases when the new prototypes arrive, and if the prototype works my build would end up in the X1 Mini.
If I could, I would turn it around. The thing is that if I make the case bigger, it would lose part of it's un uniqueness. The size would get too close to the others. If the results from testing are dissapointing, I would be willing to make the case bigger and turn it around. I will be ordering...
Smol X1 Mini:
- with 3.69L the smallest brickless case in the world to house a full gpu;
- part of the gpu slot and the riser cable is under the case. Case is lifted up by a stand;
- wrap-around sidepanel for ultra clean looks, and mechanical keyboard power switch (which is now flush w/ the...
I made the psu vertical because less room would be necessary. This is what allows me to make the case about 10% smaller than others. The 'exhaust' of the psu is pointed at the inside of the case, towards the motherboard. There is still about 10mm of room for the air to vent away though, and I...
Smol X1 mini:
-3.69L (working to get it to 3.6L) I believe this is the world record currently for housing a non-lowprofile dual slot gpu with completely internal powersupply;
-dual slot GPU up to 175mm;
-39mm cpu cooler room
-flex atx psu;
-everything is internal, so no external powerbrick.
Smol X1 and Big X1: Not just another sff case
I'm very proud to introduce to you the Smol Big X1 and Smol X1. You might have seen the Smol X1 before, as I've posted it here before, and I'm very active on reddit too (u/SmolSFF). I just finished the design of the Big X1. It's just...
Thanks for the question!
1: I can design a sidepanel that has mounting holes for a usb extender, I'll see how that looks.
2: As for now, I am planning for multiple options indeed. on this post there are the current two options, but more can be added.
I hope I answered your question with this...
