After a long time of silence I like to introduce the redesigned C4-SFX. The name comes from the German envelope norm for A4 papers so it is the big brother of the A4-SFX.
This case uses a heavly optimized classic hardware layout. The list of features is long – 280mm radiator support, big air cooler up to 145mm in height, indirect GPU cooling, ITX, deep ITX, DTX, 3.5 slot full length GPU, SFX & SFX-L Power Supply support, s.o. All this is packed in an elegant enclosure with 13L made by Lian Li. In terms of hardware support there are nearly no limits.
In this chapter I like to present the main hardware/cooling configurations.
The traditional hardware layouts allows for tower heatsinks with 120mm fan up to an height of 145mm like the Cryorig H7 or very big top blow heatsinks like the Noctua C14S. For these configurations it is possible to mount the power supply 90° rotated. With the radiator bracket it is possible to install 120, 140, 240 or 280mm radiators with 25mm thick fans for the best cooling results. For the traditional layout you can install 3.5 slot GPUs with a length up to 325mm. Two 120 or 140mm fan mount points at the top of the case allows for indirect GPU cooling if you remove the preinstalled GPU fans.
The case does come with special air flow brackets and an RTX 30x0 Founders Edition air tunnel to force hot GPU air out of the case. This will result in much better CPU temps.

This case has a feature (aio bracket) first used and invented by Necere in the Ncase M1. I like to honor him for this idea and like for the A4-SFX he will be also named in the special thanks section in the manual.
