    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    The difference is that T1 could not fit a bigger rad with its current dimensions whereas C4 in my opinion could (for side mount only).

    But GTS 280 is unbeatable. See on the comparision. Note that most of the rads tested are more than 30 mm thick.

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    Why not to make the side-mount bracket wider so that it could fit a wider radiator? HWLabs Nemesis 280 GTS is 153 mm wide and it is the best slim 280 mm rad on the marker. The difference between it and competitors it pretty noticeable. I realize it may collide with GPU fittings but I think...

    Yes, you are right about this point.

    Guys, take a look at this case: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=612151937643 It is a copy of Ghost S1, I know, I know. But it is 10.4 L in basic version and offers 280 rad support with a tophat (13.5 L).

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    Things have changed since the original concept had emerged. I really do not see any reason why I should not choose e.g. Ghost S1 over C4-SFX. Great quality, expansible (if I need to change my cooling later) and sub-10 L in base version. FormD T1 is another great case, with 3-slot GPU support and...

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    Both DA2 and M1 have classic layout so you cannot use glass panels with them as the GPU would be blocking all the airflow. With glass panels you have to have as good airflow between bottom and top as possible. Even with regular alu panels, DA2's thermals are not the best, according to Optimum...

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    Plenty? Ncase M1 and what else? With premium look of course. Forget about bad-looking Sliger, Raijintek, Geek etc. cases. And Ncase M1 is not a good option for custom loop + window. So basically there in nothing to choose from in the ~13-15 L segment. On the contrary in the ~10 L segment you...

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    You do not have to be compatible with every 280 mm rad on the market. Even if the case is compatible with only one 280 mm rad model, that would be huge. So many people ask/dream about this for SFF cases. Keep in mind that 280 mm rad has ~40% more active surface than a 240 mm rad. Take a look at...

    Daniel, how about 280 radiator at the top? With these dimensions it should be doable.

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    You have plenty of small cases to choose from. Making another one would definitely not be a killer. For me a killer would be a sandwich case with two glass (not acrylic) panels and GOOD ventilation, which (with non-vented panels) means there must be room for one or two intake fans and two...

    For 280 mm rad I am afraid you have to modify or manufacture your own mounting bracket and top grill. Unless they published prototype pictures and improved the design since then. With these parts as on the pictures, you would simply cover the edges of the rad and 140 mm fans resulting in 240 mm...

    I am considering buying this but it looks a little unreliable. You cannot select anything plus the seller has no single review yet. It looks like some guy is just trying to sell pre-production items. I like the case itself for 280 mm rad compatibility and room for a slim far underneath the...

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    The problem is that when using a 240 mm rad on top with glass panel(s), you need to have intake fans or you end up with a hotbox. I am sure many people would like to use watercooling plus glass panel in a mid-size SFF case. It is not an option for smallest sub-10L cases so C4-SFX could be the...

    DAN C4-SFX - Update 21.11.2020

    I am planning my first SFF build, made lots of research and just came across the Dan C4-SFX. My first impression was very good but now I think this is going to be just another premium case that are not perfect for me. Seriously, in the ~10 liters segment this case has strong and premium...
