Looks like a great build!The KMPCT Dynamo Mini works with regular 25x80mm fans but it is as tight as it can be.
There is contact with the plastic securing tab on the 4 pin connector with the fan frame. There’s no stress or pushing on either but there’s no wiggle room. I was honestly worried when I did some test fitting before I secured everything together but it just fits. If the rubber gasket makes the fan any wider than 25mm I can’t guarantee there won’t be any conflictLooks like a great build!
Is there any contact between the Dynamo Mini EPS connector and the front fan frame or side of the case? It's hard to tell how much clearance is there from your pics. I recently procured a Dynamo Mini 200W in anticipation of upgrading my build so I'm curious if there will be any difficulty cramming it in. My front fans have a rubber gasket around the frame (Noiseblocker M8-P) so I might have to remove that.
I'll double check on this, hopefully tomorrow.By removing the heatsink would that allow for a 80mm x 20mm to be mounted?
Sorry, no chance. Mini-DTX motherboards will not fit.Just out of curiosity, is there any chance of the Crosshair VIII Impact fitting in this case? The biggest concern is the riser card, but I guess if you remove the heatsink, it cuts down on the height.
So it looks like there is better clearance with the HDPLEX 200W DC-ATX when the front/outer heatsink is removed, than there is with the KMPKT/HDPLEX 160W DC-ATX. Here's a image which shows the clearance:By removing the heatsink would that allow for a 80mm x 20mm to be mounted?
Response directly from HDPLEX:Would having the fan in front of the HDPlex improve the power rating? So could it handle say 250W or even 300W?
By that logic would this build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/NwzV3t be possible with the HDPlex 200W DC?Response directly from HDPLEX:
"We test using 250W load in passive mode. I am pretty sure it can sustain 250W with active cooling. However 300W will trigger protection."
Absolutely, even with 64 GB ram.
Thanks for sharing your build! The photos are excellent.Finally got all my parts in!
Building was a piece of cake in this case. Cable management is pretty easy with the absolutely massive rear mobo cutout. The KMPKT Dynamo Mini works with regular 25x80mm fans but it is as tight as it can be. Definitely wouldn’t be able to slide the new HDPlex 200w dc-dc in. I could probably zip-tie some stuff to clean it up a little more but this’ll do for now:
CPU: Ryzen 2600
GPU: ZOTAC 1650 LP
MOBO: Asus Strix b450-I
Memory: 16gb XPG DDR4
Storage: 1tb XPG NVMe m.2 drive
PSU: KMPKT Dynamo Mini 200w and 230w HP brick
Thank you for the order!
