an update: It is aluminum.



I just got my m69 today!! The red is a darker red (I'd almost call it like a blood red) here is a picture with a red Skittle.
Dimensions are a little off.

115mm wide x 213mm deep x 219mm tall.(5.36L)

A few minor manufacturer defects.


The PSU came with the case and modular silver plated cables.

sgi (model #: AHF5DV456W rev 2.0) (manufacturer part number: ECD13030003)



The case, power supply, cables, and pcie riser came to 88.50 (after fees) shipping to the US was an additional 48.27 (but I chose one of the faster shipping options) total cost was 136.77. Great deal for the small case and power supply.

Very nice, this seems to have more wattage than the one i have, yes great deal all in all, keep us posted

I don't mind it, and it would look good if I rock it with dual ty-100 fan on the GPU and a axp90 copper. Both have red fan shrouds and orange fins. I would upload pics but imgur is having issues right now. :/

I just got exactly the same kit, silver cables and red case.

My case has the same minor defects, this is obviously a manufacturing issue. It's red die anodised, it will scratch easily. Fortunately I work with powder coaters and have access to a comprehensive tooling at work. Think I'm going to go for a dark grey colour

Yeah I think I'm going to go black. I'll probably paint the internal frame myself, but have the sides, bottom and top powder coated. (to save cost)

So first one goes next to the psu, there is no place in the front ? I have to open mine and have a look again

On a side note, I got hold of a black ridge and have ordered a low profile memory, a noctua 12x15 will go underneath and the case allow for another 12x25 on top, I'm excited to see how much OC headroom this will allow

Seem to tight in front for the SSD. I just installed the black ridge and there is no way for another 25mm on top of it. I use it with a a9x14

I had an LP53 with 25 on top, donno why but i had in the back of my mind both heat sinks are the same height (without the fan that is)

The lp53 is about 25-30mm high heatsink and the blackridge is a 47mm tall heatsink.

Some photos of my build. Need to add in another 8Gb RAM and fit handle and power button, but final spec will be:


M69 case + PCI-E riser + 450W PSU = £120 approx after all parts, shipping and tax
Asus Prime H310i-Plus R2.0 = £40 (2nd hand, Facebook Marketplace)
Intel i5-8400 (Hex core) = £92 (2nd hand, eBay)
Noctua NH-L9i = £35 (new)
RAM = 16Gb DDR4 Corsair LPX 3000 = £47 (2nd hand £15 + £32 new)
GPU = AMD R9 Nano 4Gb = £80 (2nd hand)
SSD = SK Hynix 256Gb NVME= £30 (2nd hand)

Total cost of £444

Running Prime 95 and MSI Kombuster concurrently for 10 minutes with no additional case fans, the CPU reached 65C and the GPU 75C. This is both at 100% load. PC was audible but acceptable for such a small system. At rest it emits audible noise, but it's acceptable. I will record some videos tomorrow and post so you can hear the noise levels for yourself :)


This has been the easiest PC I've ever built. I was gaming inbetween building, but i reckon I could have had this fully assembled and booted in around 35-40 minutes.

Yea never seen a PSU like that. Definitely not your standard FlexATX.

I didn't know 450W can handle 90w i7 + 1080Ti :)
That PSU is likely some Chinese modded PSU. CNC/Metal cutting is relatively cheap in China.
I'd definietely not put a 90W i7 with a 1080 ti on it though. Maybe a 65W UV i9 9900 with 1080 ti

It's a Rackable Systems 3F27-45-1 450w. According to Wikipedia, turns out Rackable Systems is the company that bought Silicon Graphics in 2009 and changed their name to Silicon Graphics International, which was then bought by HP in 2016.
