    DAN A4-SFX v4.1

    I also think that it's "2.2" without the backplate. Here's a proper view. I doubt it will fit, but yes, someone more experienced should enlighten us. Source: Wccftech

    GPU [Rumor] Leaked pictures of RTX 3080

    A compilation of all the AIB cards known so far. More to come in the next few days, I'm sure. Unfortunately, none of the GA104 models have 2-slot cooling solution (even the lower TDP RTX 3080). I still hope for a 2-slot Gigabyte Windforce model... [Wccftech] NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX...

    RTX 2070 Super recommendations?

    Hi, I'm looking to buy an RTX 2070 Super for my A4 v2, as a temporary upgrade for my MSI 1080 Gaming X. I'm not jumping to 2080Ti because it's way overpriced and 3000 series are just around the corner. So far, I've narrowed down my choice to these 3 models and any feedback and first-hand...

    News In Win Intros Compact Series 700W SFX Power Supply (a rebranded Silverstone SX700-PT?)

    Looks an awful lot like a rebadged Silverstone SX700-PT (although only certified as Gold), so probably they're preparing for launch soon. Source: TechPowerUp P.S.: If you compare the current/power ratings, they're basically the same: SX700-PT | CS700W

    Actually, it does fit if you're stubborn :). I used it in my S4M-C together with a Scythe 100x12mm PWM fan. I used washers under the motherboard to lift it a bit (maybe around 1.5mm), otherwise two of the retention nuts from the C7 under the motherboard would push against a part of the S4M-C...

    S4 MINI Classic (S4M-C)

    Hey guys, I've been away from the SFF scene for a few months now and I was wondering if there are any new CPU coolers that are substantially better than the ones I'm familiar with. Last time I checked, Cryorig were preparing a copper version of the C7 cooler, what happened to that? They promised...

    S4 MINI Classic (S4M-C)

    Yup, and someone on that [H] thread confirmed that it fits on the Asus Z270I in one orientation: src

    Motherboard Incoming AM4 Mini-ITX boards

    Apparently, there'll be more info on that matter on Feb 22nd. Also, AMD Ryzen Reviews Coming February 28th – Press Begin Receiving Samples

    S4 MINI Classic (S4M-C)

    @NotungX thanks for checking. You can see the actual rpm of the fan with other tools like GPU-Z, MSI Afterburner (yes, it works with boards from any brand and you can create a custom fan curve) and the likes of AIDA64, HWiNFO, etc. Thank you for offering to make a sound recording, but this won't...

    S4 MINI Classic (S4M-C)

    @NotungX congrats! Does the card have semi-passive mode (the fans turning off under a certain temp, basically when idle)? If not, what is the lowest possible fan speed you can set manually (both in % and rpm)?

    Motherboard Incoming AM4 Mini-ITX boards

    Let's hope so. Potential Zen failure will be a disaster for everyone. Historically, Jim Keller has delivered every time (arguably), so that's encouraging. Judging by all the info so far, I think Ryzen will be a commercial success, even if it doesn't beat intel's products in pure performance...

    Motherboard Incoming AM4 Mini-ITX boards

    Yet another unconfirmed Ryzen leak. According to this one, there will be a 8C/16T model with just 65W TDP. If true, that's a great accomplishment. Now imagine what's possible with just 4C/8T or 4C/4T... I'm so anxious to see the reviews!

    GPU Zotac GTX 1080 Mini

    This is what the reviewer wrote: When idle, the card's fans drop to their lowest available speed, which is 37 percent (approximately 1,150RPM), at which point the card is almost impossible to hear in a normal system. I guess their norm is a water-cooled system with at least 4 140mm case fans...

    Rumor Intel Reportedly Readying Xeon Gold Processor Line

    I think Broadwell-E is the last architecture to come to LGA 2011-v3. Skylake-X will use the new LGA 2066 socket with the new X299 chipset. As for these Gold Xeons, my money would be on LGA 3647 too, but I wouldn't be surprised if Intel introduces an entirely new socket in order to separate the...

    Motherboard Incoming AM4 Mini-ITX boards

    A total of 17 models, wow! I haven't been this excited about a CPU release in years. And the launch is less than a month away! I really hope AMD delivers on the promised perf/watt. If they do, these CPUs would be perfect for SFF builds (when the proper mobos appear, hopefully sooner rather...
