At the back side, top right corner.

You can see it better from my earlier posts: I am re-using the original power button, power LED and HDD LED from the DeskMini.

I have updated GPU size compatibility:

max. GPU height with angled power adapter: 130mm




max. GPU height without adapter: 120mm



If needed, I can ship a set of those adapters with the DSX1

Hey, I was going through the deskmini's spec page on asrock's site and noticed that the included power adapter is listed as 120W/19V. But I guess the board handles 12v dc input fine? Or does the 19v refer to something else? Would bumping up the voltage on the psu (say, moving up to an rps-400-15v or 18v power supply) slightly increase the efficiency (speaking just in terms of the motherboard input -- i'm assuming it wouldn't be compatible with the gpu at all)? I don't know much about this stuff, sorry.

You are right. The DeskMini usually uses a 19VDC power adapter but it runs totally fine with 12VDC (also confirmed by other forum members).

Reason for going with 12V is that you only need one power supply to power both, the GPU and DeskMini. If you connect a higher voltage to the GPU you would fry it.

If you are more comfortable with 19VDC for the DeskMini you can still use the original power adapter and the RPS-400-12-C will just take over to supply 12V for your GPU.

Big thanks to REVOCCASES as I've got my two cases today! :) Its just a little unboxing, tho there will be more upcoming videos arround the DSX1 (and BIG1) as those new Cezanne APUs (5700G / 5600G) are already listed for retail soon and will bring nice IPC uplift for the GPU concept. Love the idea to transform the DeskMini to an perfect Gaming Console with one PSU inside! <3

If someone would like to check out the DSX1 after seeing the Build by GucksTV: I have one last B-Stock Prototype Case available.

After this one is gone, I need to adjust the price of the DSX1 because component and material cost have recently increase significantly.

I made a few minor changes and produced another small batch of DSX1 cases:



Pre-orders for the whole set incl. internal power supply and riser cable are now open again via my website.

PS: here is another video from @GucksTV featuring the new Ryzen 5600G running on the AsRock X300 STX in the DSX1:

I have two DSX1 left on stock and decided to offer them without PSU and PCIe riser - only the case - without GPU support

Here some ideas how you could use the case to build a cool and quiet DeskMini rig:

1) hide away the power brick



2) drill four additional holes at the back of the case and flip the motherboard - this will allow you to use up to 100mm tall coolers





3) of course, if you like tinkering you can also try to add GPU support by yourself ...
