*final added height was 20mm, so this was the reason I put 4.1L in the title instead of original 3.8L size.
Although my build is not that dense compared to @Stifle, it may still bring something new :)
This is my first posting, so I will make it a bit of an introduction story.
After getting a...
I was eyeing the 4800U ever since it's release... when I saw the 4X4 for just 350€ (returned) instead of 600€ (new) I just ordered it. I already had the Meanwell EPP-120S-12 and wanted to make a case where the PSU would be internal. (The board accepts 12-19V the bundled brick is 19V.) Only...
First things first, big thank to @Thehack for his 12V guide, his helpfulness, and all what he brings to the sff community!
So this build is a backup for my MiniCube rig. I need one as I am working more from home lately (Good excuse huh? ;))

RCC-SMALL1 provides a 4L package if you are looking for:
a rock solid compact case
decent CPU and GPU performance with internal power supply (brickless without compromise)
lots of internal storage for Games, Movies, Work, etc...
This has been a project of mine for the past 8 months waiting for different parts, test fitting a million times and modding a lot of things. It is not complete as I am going to make a mounting bracket for the GPU fan and run the cable inside to a header on the mobo; however, today marks a very...
I've just gotten my S4 Mini but I've been having some problems with my PC crashing.
I had a working Node 202 build and decided to swap cases. Basically hardware wise the only thing that changed was the case, of course and the PSU.
My PSU of choice was the HD-plex AC-DC/DC-ATX 400W...
I was able to fit an MSI RTX 2070 Aero ITX into an S4M while keeping the HDPLEX 400w AC-DC inside, and without having to open the HDPLEX psu or cut/bend anything. The only "mod" is to remove the PCI brackets from the MSI card and cut out some foam.
The end result is not perfect, but it...
(TLDR at the bottom)
I picked up a 2nd hand Skyreach 4 Mini, hdplex 400w dc-atx, and Dell 330w brick from r/hardwareswap a couple months ago. When I found out the AC-DC was coming out I pre-ordered it almost instantly. I grabbed an R9 Nano from offerup for $145 shipped because...
this is my project 5.2L mini 250W brickless PC for my girlfriend.
CPU: Intel® Pentium® Gold G5400 Processor
CPU Cooler: IS-40X from ID-COOLING
GPU: GeForce® GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 2G
RAM: 8GB DDR4 KIT (2X 4GB) 2400MHz DIMM from Kllisre (Aliexpress)...
I would like to share and discuss my idea of a brickless sub 3l wooden case perforated with a voronoi pattern. It shares some similarities with Windfall's concept, but can house a desktop ryzen APU on an AM4 Mini-ITX mainboard equipped with a proper cooler & fan combo.
My goal is...
This will be my second build and I am wondering how the whole dc dc PSU thing works? Do I need to buy a seperate PSU for a 1050 ti and Ryzen 3 1200, if so what should I buy, if not then do I need to buy antyhting or can I just plug and play without having the buy anything other than the Skyreach...
I currently have just finished building my rig with an i5-8400 and an MSI 1070 Aero ITX. I used an HDPlex 400W and a Dell 330W adapter.
I was thinking maybe I can cram an HDPlex 300W AC-DC inside to make it brickless.
I saw someone cram the internal brick with a Gigabyte 1080 mini here...
Hello, long time lurker but first time poster... Finally made an account today. When I first saw the S4 I immediately fell in love. It's such a pleasing case to look at, and the amount of power you can cram into it is absurd. I've been doing a bit of searching and this is what I've come up with...
This will be (another) attempt to squeeze both a GTX1080 and a 8700k into a brickless Skyreach S4 Mini - inspired by @JarrettP 's solution using two separate power supplies, but going for a passively cooled combo of a HDPLEX 160W
for the motherboard, and a 200W Mean Well PSU to power the...
Here it is. An all internally powered S4M with a GTX 1080 in it. It wasn't easy, and to be honest I thought i was going to end up frying my parts with the custom power setup, but it all works! In fact, it works well!
In order to go brickless, I had to rethink how to power a PC that was this...
Hello SFF Forum! I'm an ITX fan who has been craving tiny PC solutions for a while now. I have always had my own ideas on how I would design a small case, and when I happened across this forum, I knew I had found my tribe!
So after marveling at the designs of others, I decided to take a crack...

So this is babby's first build log. Caught the SFF bug after building with the S4M recently and after hearing about the 2200G and the 2400G and the iGPU performance being comparable to a GT1030 I got carried away with some ideas.
I seen the Realan E-W60 case on a youtube video and noticed the...
I’m looking to turn my Skyreach 4 Mini into a brickless build.
It appears the connector will need to be a C8 connector with an accompanying C7 cable. I have been advised that a polarised version of these would be preferable.
Does anyone have experience with these connectors and/or can...
