Hey all,

In the middle of cleaning up boxes of SFF hardware that have been sitting in storage for the past 2+ years and the nostalgia started to hit me pretty hard so I thought I'd pop on the forums. Just thought I'd say hi and ask the community what the coolest SFF stuff is currently because I don't have the time to pour over pages of forum content.

Hello there.

IMO probably Dan C4, Apple Mac Mini & Studio, and the NFC S4 stuffed to the max by Petricor.

Dynamo 360 is also still pretty cool for those who want one :)

Welcome back !

I'd say Dan C4 and the new GaN HDPLEX units.

Yeah. I think the new 250w GAN HDPlex is going to inspire me to pick up my old S4-Mini Classic build if it fits.

sadly power usage has only been going UP for PC parts... in my opinion, nothing really groundbreaking has happened in SFF since Deskmini GTX/RX (R.I.P).

GaN mentioned above might be the only technical advancement for SFF recently...

(aside from apple's ARM chips, which are an incredible leap for SFF... but not DIY friendly)
