the thickness (height) of the case depends on the pico PSU. If you make it thinner you can’t connect the HDPEX pico
So how about it with the standard thickness? I mean the standard project, reduced only in width to accommodate low profile GPUs .

Hi all ... noob here, I am trying to assemble parts for a rig with the SLM1 4L, which is the smallest case with a front USB-C (that doesn't use the noisy flex PSU). I am not a gamer (not yet) and I was thinking about either using a Zen2 APU or a Zen3 CPU+cheap GPU. But i Narrowed my parts to the following and I may take any input if you guys might have.

MoBo (These 3 are the only ones in the B550 that offer a usbc-3.2 header for front usb-c connection. I'd go X570, but that option seems to be missing):
  1. ASRock B550 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ax
  2. Asus ROG STRIX B550-I GAMING
  3. MSI MPG B550I GAMING EDGE WIFI

Cooler (any better alternatives out there?):
  1. Noctua NH-L9a-AM4
PSU (seems like the only option?):
  1. HDPLEX 200W DC-ATX

GPU:
  1. I haven't made up my mind yet for a cheap stable GPU if I go the Zen3 CPU route.

What do you all think? On another level, how long was the lead-out for the SLM1 4L case?

yes Noctua and HDPLEX 200W are the best that can be. next week we will order a batch of these cases. will be ready in late May early June
