I noticed some sites like the official one say v4.1 and others say v4. Does "4.1" just mean the 2nd batch of v4's? wondering any physical differences.
With v4.1 the A4-SFX will be the first sandwich layout case that supports PCIe® x16 Gen4. Furthermore we add USB 3.2 gen2 type-C front panel support with the new internal Key-A connector.
- 3M™ 8KC3-0726-0300 PCIe® x16 Gen4 riser
- USB 3.2 gen2 Type-C front port with internal Key-A
Reason I ask is a few v4.0's floating around and wanted to know if it's worth waiting for the 4.1 batch to ship. Anyway, prob dont' need PCIE4.0 for gaming. Not sure what a "internal Key-A" means or if it's worth holding out forWith v4 we reduce the retail price again. Therefor the v4 comes with a special riser made by ADT. The new riser cable will support PCIe® x16 Gen3.
- ADT R33UF-TU PCIe® x16 Gen3 riser
- USB 3.2 gen1 Type-C front port
- 92mm fan mount point under the motherboard
- Pre-drilled threads for custom window kits
- The 120mm AIO bracket is now optional
I emailed Dan this question a while ago he said yes, the v3 connector will work on the v2 case.Hi there,
I purchased a v2 from the 2nd kickstarter. I remember reading, and just confirmed, that using an AIO watercooler required removal of the front usb connector.
Would replacing the v2 usb connector with the v3 usb connector (https://www.sfflab.com/products/dan_a4_cable_usb?_pos=1&_sid=12b4825fa&_ss=r) allow me to install the Asetek 656LT 92MM SFF AIO without issue? Much appreciate the help!
You can look at the Website of SFFLAB.com they're open for preoders of the A4 with shipping at around 18th October.I see that Caseking.de has already the v4.1 listed on their site but remains "unknow" but in the Dan-Case website says avaiable in November, so hipoteticaly if I buy it right know I should be receiving it around November. Did someone bought one from them? I'm asking because I'm living in Germany now and it would be awesome to buy it directly from them.
Yeah I just read that, unfortunally after odering the new Version of the Case. I currently have no Idea how to get the Front IO working without any support for this header.4.1 front USB port supports speeds of USB 3.2 gen2, old 4.0 front USB port supports speeds of I think USB 3.0. So basically, with 4.1 you are getting different front USB cable. I think I read that currently there are no ITX motherboards that have USB 3.2 gen2 header.
Yeah but I was asking to avoid the more expensive shipping costs, I think I don't have an option at the moment, thanks for the answer!You can look at the Website of SFFLAB.com they're open for preoders of the A4 with shipping at around 18th October.
I do also live in Germany and ordered the Case myself yesterday.
The threads are in the bracket so drilling holes should be sufficient. Bare in mind that the holes are concaved for the screws to fit flush otherwise the case won't close properly.I have a V2. I saw the 120mm AIO bracket is available separately. I know the V2 doesn’t have the connection points for it, but has anyone tried to retrofit it? Is it a matter of tapping some holes or is it more significant than that?
I’m thinking about stepping up to the 3900x and need a major cooling improvement to get there.
