    S4M brickless - sanding down HDPlex400

    Hi Guys, I hope this mandates a separate thread, but I have a very specific question to those electrically/electronically savvy. As you probably know, there is an option to stick some taller cards into the S4M in a brickless HDPlex400 build by swapping the positions of the AC-DC and DC-ATX. To...

    Skyreach brickless build

    Hey, how did you mount the PSU fan? For me the metal end of the cover, which is profiled lower due to mounting to the case, made it incompatible. It pushed the fan down enough to miss the screw holes. In your pics this seems well aligned for some reason. Any tips?

    S4M + HDPlex400 brickless - powering & grounding

    I ordered on August 12th, my order says: Skyreach 4 MINI × 1 Silver / NFC SILIFLEX / R5 So it is the newest revision AFAIK. There's no info on the chassis itself/the box, and there's no paper manual, so I'll take them at their word that's what they shipped. I guess it fits 'compatible' C6...

    S4M + HDPlex400 brickless - powering & grounding

    Sorry for the double post, but after writing that I decided to take my dremel and see what I can do with the connector. Turns out I could make it work for outside mounting, a tight fit nonetheless, but it's usable. Had to shave off 3mm of plastic from one of the sides to not collide with the...

    S4M + HDPlex400 brickless - powering & grounding

    I really appreciate your response, excellent information! Unfortunately, although good quality, this connector is too big: PICTURE 1 PICTURE 2 So I'm kind of at a loss now. It looks like the holes in the S4M are somehow wide enough they might support it, if I shave off some of the plastic on...

    S4M + HDPlex400 brickless - powering & grounding

    My S4M arrived last week, so I assume this is the revision I've got. Managed to find a Schurter C6 connector on eBay and ordered that.

    S4M + HDPlex400 brickless - powering & grounding

    Thanks for the answer! Yes, I've looked into it as well, just edited my OP. Is the C6 the same size as a C8 and will thus fit into the C8 mounting hole of the S4M? So it's just a matter of rewiring the C14 HDPlex connector onto the correct pins of a C6 and... done? Should I worry about the...

    S4M + HDPlex400 brickless - powering & grounding

    OK, I am an idiot - C14 is the male connector, C13 is female and I need a CEE 7/7 to C13 for power... Now that that's out of the way, hopefully you guys can share some advice/experience on the other points. /edit I've found these 3-pin sets: 1) 2.6mm pins, but unknown diameter? It says max...

    S4M + HDPlex400 brickless - powering & grounding

    Hi Guys, I've been lurking for a while without an account trying to find information for my new build (already have the case + PSU), but got stuck. I've read through a bunch of posts that clarified a lot, but also added to more confusion in the process. I would like to admit to being a complete...
