We can add support for a 250W hdplex, not for 500W, HDPLEX PSU installation will require an adapter plate.
We just need collect some requests and this feature will be added.
For example 5 likes on this post:)
Guys thanks very much for voting!
Officially starting from today Gemcase C9 supports HDPLEX 250W.
We need a few days to show how it’s looks like:)

Thanks for the info Gemcases. I saw in your other thread you might have an option for a custom case? Is that true? If so is it a modified existing case, or are you possibly able to a one off?

I have a specific dumb design I'd love to attempt but don't have the expertise to make it happen.

Yes, we can. We can dicsuss it further in discord for example.
Depending on the design exclusivity, this may cost you significantly more.

I've been trying for 15 minutes. Link doesn't work, trying to add "Gemcases" as a friend doesn't find anyone. Hmmmm
Sorry, just checked the link doesn't work, replaced with our nickname: gemcases . Checked from another account this works. Pm-ed you at forum, trying to add you by your nick here. Thanks for waiting.

A few more questions about this case. Obviously you have a 4060 low profile; how loud is that card? (I'm trying to make a semi quite 1080p build). How sturdy is this case? I plan to be moving it likely once a week

To our common regret, GPU was provided by a partner store and we did not have time to thoroughly check it, also searched this information in the internet but without success.
Case is sturdy, maded of steel and stainless steel, having a spine joining all flanges, even without PC parts case stand-alone feels like solid block, so frequent moves will be easy. Also wood front made of a manufacturing hard wood coated with oil that wear out evenly over time.

I’d be keen to preorder with 250W HDPlex support. Will need shipping to Melbourne, Australia.

We might need to check if your delivery partner will allow importing wooden products to Australia due to our strict customs. I’ve been stung by that before

Thank you, nice to hear it. I will find out details and let you know.

How do the top fans attach to the frame/case? is it just the outer 2 screws that are screwed in?
Top fans attached via all 4 screws, the middle ones attached through a metal joint that connects both fans, thus achieving high joint strength.

Hi there !

Considering the cpu clearance, I guess the pick for cpu cooling is the Noctua NH-L9 ?

I'm assuming we have to stay around 65W TDP's cpu.. Maybe a i5-13400F is a sweet spot ? (didnt investigated for amd's)
Considering the two extra fans now in such a small form factor, these would improve a lot on overall temps..

Other thoughts, as the cpu cooler looks like close to one edge of the case, I saw noctua making those foam pad called NA-FD1 wich could cut ~3 degrees more

In other words, what could be the most powerful cpu we can fit in this amazing case ? (hope amd have some contenders)

Yes, this cooler will be the optimal one.
We have i3-13100 with little down voltage and unlocked tdp, thus decreased heat but slightly improved performance.
Under cpu burner i3-13100 easily stays cool (70C) with slight fan noise(completely not disturbing).
You also can consider i5-12400(500,600) they have less power peak performance and easier to cool.
I think that i5-13400 with its 148W peak will be upper limit for cool and quiet config.
About foam pads I saw users reported in decreased temperature so why not, but first you can check this using available home tools

How much maximum watts you manage to hit staying in a quiet and cool config ? 100w ? 120 w ?
