    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    PCIe gen 4 risers are ready. +80 USD over the gen 3 version for each case or 95.99 USD separate. Very easy to route diagonally in the Velka 5/7.

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    It will be announced this weekend. You can flip the front panel and then turn over the whole case to have the PSU on the bottom like this. The new top will have asymmetrical screws and vents, though. You can probably expect your SSD temperatures to be the same as when you had them without the...

    Prototype Slim console-style case from Velkase. Looking for tester and reader feedback.

    What made you switch to the Raven? Good performance in horizontal orientation is definitely a priority. However, having the CPU and GPU fans face opposite directions reduces the PCIe cable length by 20 cm. This has a noticeable effect on PCIe gen 4 compatibility and will have a greater effect...

    Prototype Slim console-style case from Velkase. Looking for tester and reader feedback.

    Something like what can be done with one of these cable sleeves or do you want some rigid structure to attach the cables to? GPU: If it fits, it will cool itself fine. It's a very open case. In the current state, RTX 3080 max due to physical dimension constraints. CPU: Best coolers would be...

    Prototype Slim console-style case from Velkase. Looking for tester and reader feedback.

    The purpose of this design is to be a console-style case that can accommodate high-end hardware more quietly than other cases in its size category, and support vertical and horizontal orientations so that it can be used anywhere: in a TV cabinet in the living room, on a desk, etc. At the same...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    There are no plans to add USB-C in the near future but I believe this one will fit with a custom mounting solution. T9A-T8T-NC 30 cm http://www.adt.link/product/UTT-20G.html Yes and I would recommend the male DP to male HDMI cable to be an active one.

    Active DP to HDMI adapters/cables should be used instead of passive ones. Would you be able to try using a single active DP male to HDMI male cable? Having a series of 3 cables may be causing issues.

    Discussion My current Velka 3 Experience

    I understand. The intent of my reply in this thread was to provide others a brief summary of how this is being handled and why it is being handled the way it is. It was not meant to start a public argument or anything of the sort as we have already decided how to proceed.

    They would be sold separately like the current cables

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    There is a PCIe gen 4 riser option planned for a few weeks from now. HDMI and DP extensions: these are planned to be updated next year but they may still not support the higher transfer speeds with all hardware. I am working on a revised frame that gives a choice between using extensions and a...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    Top IO orientation is not possible in the current models, only in the first revision cases from 2019.

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    They're not currently used in these cases because they would need to be custom-made in multiple sizes. They would need to have a very short 1.2 mm long male thread to avoid poking through to the opposite side of the motherboard tray and different female end lengths for the CPU and GPU sides of...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    Are you referring to separate male-female standoffs that would screw into tapped holes in the motherboard tray or something else? And for what benefit?
