I have several of these FPC (Flat Printed Circuit) ribbon cable M.2 M-key extenders, see this as an example of the most recent unit I have tested:
These are great because of their compact size and will always fit well underneath sandwiched GPUs and such extremely tight SFF environments...
Smol X1 and Big X1: Not just another sff case
I'm very proud to introduce to you the Smol Big X1 and Smol X1. You might have seen the Smol X1 before, as I've posted it here before, and I'm very active on reddit too (u/SmolSFF). I just finished the design of the Big X1. It's just...
3LVIS: (3) (L)itre (V)ery small case with (I)nternal psu and (S)creen
Part 1: The journey begins
This build was inspired by (or blatantly copied from, depending on how you look at it) the build log by BaK titled "B01T3 ...a 3L Brickless APU Build..." - genius title btw, love the...
Hello again. I've finished my visual prototype of my case, and I personally think the front isn't great, but the side panels look pretty good.
Not much else changed, the Rad bracket does still have widened mounting holes for more room. The two side panels, and the top panel are all connected...
I have found an extremely space efficient mATX layout supporting many mainstream components. My goals were to have:
To have absolutely, the smallest, most reasonable fully mATX compatible case possible.
Support for a 240mm AIO.
Mainstream PSU support, it being SFX and SFX-L.
A simple build...
Back at it again, but this time, I figured out how to make my larger cases substantially smaller, without too much compromise. So now here are those ideas with a slight redux.
16.6L tower has been eliminated as a viable option. All cases support:
SFX-L PSUs up to 125mm long.
mATX and ITX.
First SFF build, first custom loop, first RGB...a lot of firsts for me. And it went...slowly. Parts were not available, something came broken, didn't fit, wasn't compatible, needed to order something I didn't realize I needed...etc. It's not perfect by any means, but I'm happy the way it turned...
Alphacool released their new SL-15 fans today

it's very, very difficult. You got me thinking about size again, and yet which is better? Maintain the size of the Xbox with large iron restrictions or make an enlarged version with a volume of about 10 liters, which even water cooling will fit...
After the creation of Aquanaut, there seems to be many requests for reservoir feature either included with the water block or as a separate unit. So this is what this project is about ?. But I will need your suggestions. Lets gather ideas from other threads on this particular subject and let me...
With more and more thicc cards coming out, this poses enormous challenges for SFF creators. Going to start a project to tackle this.
Project Name : Obelisk
- layout - traditional, PCIe 4.0 friendly
- 3 slot cards support (primary)
- custom cooling (Aquanaut) friendly
Hi everyone, my name is Argofisto and today I want to present a design that I have been working on for a while.
It consists of a 16.8-liter pc case with a lot of compatibility.
The main objective is to create the smallest micro-atx case with a normal but vertical layout, obtaining the...
Hello, we are working on something that can please sff users by size, cooling and looks. We are proudly present you the HORIZON by LEDGE.
DIMENSIONS (H x W x D)Horizon 204 x 231 x 310 mm
Bigger Horizon (Expansion part on front) 204 x 231 x 390 mm
1. In release stands, pci riser will be attached to the stand
2. We decided to add ventilation holes under power supply
3. Slightly changed the position of the holes for the ties / Velcro tape
4. Changed the mount for ssd, now you can put another one
5. Bracket for 120/92mm aio (and maybe...
Recently, I thought: why there is still not a single case made of anodized MILLED aluminum for custom watercool?
What do you think about this idea? Front - distribution plate with touch power button.
It's good idea? aprox price ~300$
Thanks for any comment
I hope you are staying safe and healthy during these tough times.
I want to share a case that I hope to start selling soon. The design in question is a 10L, inverted-tower style composed of flat acrylic panels. I made and sold a few cases with a nearly identical layout last year...
This is the second time posting here on sffnetwork.
I wanted to share my project of watercooling a Fractal design node 202 with a dual 240 mm radiator loop.
Here is the parts list:
Case: node 202
Psu: corsair sf600 platinum
Cpu: ryzen 3700x
Mobo: Aorus x570 pro wifi...
These are my parts. I have 2 constraints:
1. I have an HDPLEX 400w + HDPLEX 400W ac-dc unit. If I was in the US it probably wouldn't be so bad selling them and getting an SFX PSU but I live in Japan so I'd rather just use them instead of buying a new PSU.
2. It's a hackintosh so I can only use...
