    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    Just bought one of the blemished covers. Very interested to see how the extra GPU ventilation will work out.

    Prototype MT4-S - Compact and flexible 4 liter case

    Very interested. The new design has a bit of Lone L5 in it (which I absolutely love). This case might give me a path to a better GPU for my Hackintosh since AMD low profile cards max out at RX560.

    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    I have done just this. My MSI RX560 low profile with the fan off has JUST enough room to mount a slim 80mm fan. I've used the two mounting holes for HDD and they line up perfectly with an 80mm fan. I have a GPU fan header splitter so I attach one to the slim 80mm and the other to the 90mm intake...

    I think the case as it is is perfect. I like the screws and the vent pattern makes the case. I like that you can't really tell if its on or off and that's besides the point, it's like vintage audio equipment that look good on and off. If I were to add anything it would be that 3rd PCI slot for...

    NZXT H1 is new SFF case that includes 650w SFX and 140mm AIO

    The Kraken G12 is a really really tight fit. Definitely need an AIO with swivel hoses.

    NZXT H1 is new SFF case that includes 650w SFX and 140mm AIO

    I've been too lazy to take pics of it. I'll see if I can take a few later tonight.

    NZXT H1 is new SFF case that includes 650w SFX and 140mm AIO

    Yea I agree, good step for the SFF market. I actually have a NZXT H200 and while it's huge for SFF I like it. I can run 240mm for CPU and 120mm AIO for GPU for my gaming rig. I have the Lone L5 for my hackintosh.

    NZXT H1 is new SFF case that includes 650w SFX and 140mm AIO

    Interesting new case from NZXT. The price is high at $350 but does come with bundled 650W SFX power supply and 140mm AIO. I don't think it's a fit for most of us here but in nice to see a "mass market" vendor deliver interesting, nicely designed SFF cases...

    Prototype FormD-P1 (Sidearmd) 280/240AIO Support Case

    Vertical for me. Would look amazing in the living room with that B&O aesthetic. This would move the needle.

    Prototype Knarr: ~12L case with a focus on liquid cooling and aesthetics

    Power button. If you located the power button somewhere else then....brilliant. The sliding panel is great! Opens up other possibilities.

    Prototype Knarr: ~12L case with a focus on liquid cooling and aesthetics

    Could you make the top and bottom wood panels interchangeable? That way you can flip the orientation of the case and still see the glass side. I also wouldn’t mind seeing all the sides in aluminum with the top and bottom in wood. I think it would still look good.

    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    The exhaust fan is good idea. I actually took out the Noiseblocker since the GPU temps with just the Noctua 80mm intake weren't too bad (idling in low 50s). I've solved all the Hackintosh GPU acceleration issues, the sleep wake issues, and USB issues. I pretty much have a golden build. Now I'm...

    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    Ok talk about a tight fit. Got the noiseblockers 80mm today and mounted at the bottom of the case. With the included rubber mounts there is literally no room left. So good news is that everything works and the card temps are great. Bad news is that while the fan noise is better than stock...

    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    I can confirm everything @reasons4reasons said. I personally have an MSI RX560 LP card that I got used off of eBay for $140. It works fantastically in OS X with very minimal messing with. HOWEVER, out of the box the fans are annoyingly loud. I resorted to taking the fans out all together and...

    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    Ok did a few things to complete the build. Did some cleanup of cables Removed the GPU fan heatsink and hooked it up to the Noctua 80mm Undervolt the i7 7700 to 1.65 volts and temps are definitely better. I will test to see how much lower it can go. I'm still using the Arctic 12 Passive and...
