This case still interesting to me, it allows for a lot of possibilities
Was using LP53 with Noctua 90x15mm, started taking it off to replace it with Black Ridge, then figured what will happen if i tried to fit this Noctua 120x25mm fan on top, the case have enough room, long story short, it fits but temps are not what i expected
I'm guessing it has to do with pressure, fan exceeds HS by much, compared to the original 90mm fan, not enough pressure.

I have moved on to Black Ridge for now, but later will try to come up with a duct that helps with leading the air to the HS

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.

hey mate, how did you go about specifying the colour of the case? Also, it appears in the images that the colour of the PSU cables can be customised too, was wondering if you knew anything about that too.

Cheers!

The new version I think is a bit bigger - it now supports 244mm GPU's and has a few a revised PSU.

Not sure how that affects the volume in the new version, but I think cards like the shorter 5700XT's (pulse and red dragon for example) will fit it in.

Personally I think I prefer the original but eh

The older design was better imo. Me thinks they're trying to get rid of whatever extra psu stock so they designed the case to fit the psu

Well for the size the new velka 5 is more optimized. Less CPU cooler clearance which is unfortunate. But 5L 270mm gpu, 39mm CPU cooler and flex PSU. So ~0.2L smaller with shorter CPU cooler clearance, but longer gpu clearance. (Not sure about hard drive differences)

I use a 9900K in this case now. it works but as you might already know it runs very hot, im thinknig of direct die. What CPU cooler do you guys use?

2600 with black ridge, vlp ram, and nf12x15 chrimax

nice, problem with black ridge and direct die is i have to modify the mount since its not able to adjust. did you add some dust filter to the case? and what temp do you get on CPU & GPU?

Yeah that ryzen is definitely cooler than my 9900k :) i have the same on the 1080 ti. how did you fit those fans? do you have a picture?

im also trying to find "better" GPU to fit in this case but as far as i know the 1080 ti zotac is the only small ITX card in the market now?

Zotac 2070 Super Mini is the most powerful I can think of in 2000 series. No idea on 3000 series so will need to wait on official announcement first
