Howdy folks. Newbie in the forum here. I just joined the S4 mini cult and migrating from a Node 202 build. Below is what I currently have:
Asrock Z390 ITX motherboard
Intel 9400F CPU
16 GB DDR4 RAM
NVME and 2.5" SSD drive
Zotac 2060 Mini (twin fan model). Exactly the same dimensions as Josh's...
So I'm definitely going to purchase one of these cases, I just can't decide between them. At the end of the day, it just boils down to which one has better cpu cooling performance. I'm just not seeing too much about the 2700x in either of these cases and would love any help.
My first post so I hope it's in the right forum!
I'm enjoying the challenge of doing my own SFF builds.
I started with a DAN A4-SFX as an HTPC and light gaming build and that build went very well.
I love the SFF and silence of the PC so I've decided to replace my home office PC that...
.This has been a long time in the making and I've finally settled down with the right part list that should fit my needs. I went with Ryzen because the new Ryzen boards will be backwards compatible with the upcoming Ryzen 3 7nm coming out later this year and hopefully they have a powerful low...
I took the CPU out of my laptop and got a desktop motherboard that takes a mobile CPU and mobile RAM. I want to get a better CPU fan/liquid cooling system, but I am having trouble researching it since it is a mobile CPU, which you typically wouldn't buy an aftermarket cooler for. Right now I am...
Following up to the S4 Mini "top hat" design (https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/s4-mini-top-hat.9818/) I have another S4 Mini that I wanted to convert to a home nas server using the bay drive for 8 7mm 2.5" drives. I have a few parts and I'm measuring out the specs for this one...
So I recently ran across this website that makes heat exchangers out of the UK.
I contacted them about customization options and I recently got a quote on a custom heat exchanger that can have the standard 1/4" fittings, and enough room to fit...
All components turn on but no video output when using with riser.
Works fine without riser. (GPU plug direct into motherboard)
Riser works fine when used on a seperate build (Matt, gtx970, desktop psu)
Components assembled for my S4 mini build:
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 (65w)...
So I’ve been toying around with an idea/design for a simple 240mm external radiator. The goal would be an anodized black matte aluminum case, custom integrated acrylic reservoir block, ddc pump, 240mm slim radiator, room for 2 25mm 120mm fans.
Why so small? Well I’m hoping to have something...
I want to put an EK Backplate on my R9 Nano going into an S4 build. I do not plan on water cooling it, but i wanted a backplate on the card. Do you guys think the backplate will work with the stock cooler? Thanks
Long story short I have been going ham on my CerbX and don’t get to use my other rig too much these days. Case is amazing but sadly not getting much use.
Skyreach mini with fan brackets , gpu riser and drive plate. Normal install wear but free of major scuffs externally.

I've been looking at my S4 Mini a lot and I've been contemplating what I could do with all of the extra volume inside of the case. I currently have an i7 8700k / 1080ti which both perform pretty well, but under heavy load they both end up throttling eventually.
I'm currently planning to get a...
I am looking for a graphics card than can handle 1080p 120hz with freesync. Since I cannot find any suppliers in the UK that sell a vega nano I was looking at this card https://www.newegg.com/global/uk/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137244
Has anybody tried this card inside the s4 mini...
Selling a used NFC S4 Mini Case with power solution (HDPlex 400w+cables and Dell 330w power brick).
Got the S4 Mini around fall last year and my Dan Case A4 in the same week. Used the S4 mini setup for 2 days then moved over to Dan Case A4. Everything has been sitting in storage since then...
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...

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...

Hi, SFF forum! I'm Francis from Los Angeles, California. I came upon this forum through NFC and Tek Everything's YouTube channels.
I instantly fell in love with the idea of the HDPlex and have really been exploring different cases in which I can use the HDPlex to save more space and maybe water...
