Will the M1 EVO support the 4090 along with future sfx-l power supplies with the 16pin connector and 240mm AIO? I remember hearing about GPU clearance issues with v6.1 on sfx-l PSUs and opted for a regular sfx PSU, but with the power draw from the recent GPU and CPU releases I worry about compromising on the amount of available 8 pin slots available as well as power delivery.

I made a new post on the replacement here, but for those that are too lazy to click, here is the summary:

2022-10-23: Testing an air-cooled build with 30XX GPU + 4090FE.​




We have not received the 4090 GPUs yet, so test-fitting Thermalright SS135 on Noctua A12x25R + MSI 3070 Suprim X + ATX PSU. FWIW, Micro-ATX motherboards will fit, and there is space for 25mm thick fans between the Top Panel and GPU.[/URL]

4090 FE *could fit via direct contact with minor tweaks to the design and a custom 12P GPU cable. But, of course, this will also depend on the back of the motherboard.

Nice GPU compatibility as MSI RTX 3070 Suprim X dimensions are 335 x 140 x 61 mm.

Could you fit this GPU inside case with PSU/CPU cooler in place? Or do we need to disassemble them to fit GPU first?

It's an updated M1, M2 would require more changes.
Well as an idea for the M2 (or N1), how about a properly cooled/coolable Mini-ITX NAS box. Because that SilverStone DS380 case failed at the cooling task. If you want 8 or more drives it is really hard to find a compact case. I don't know of any others besides the SilverStone.

Something with:
  • 8 - 3.5" bays at least
  • maybe an option to rack mount
  • Preferably shallow enough to fit in a 12" deep wall mounted rack.
  • ships without a backplane
  • optional backplane in 4-drive blocks that use a SFF-8087 connector.
  • for a real engineering challenge make the outer shell modular with 4 bays expandable to 8 bays or 12 bays by inserting some spacers.
I think QNAP makes some really clean looking designs, except for the fact that they are proprietary and can't be DIY repaired if they break.

this is great placement of the video card, and still room for decent thick fans to be de-shrouded

judging by the thickness of the case im assuming 140mm fans are out of the question? i have managed to fit 140s in my current setup with some little dremel work to make them fit

With mATX compatibility on the EVO does it allow enough room for a 240mm AIO? The change to the GPU being top mounted I think it's a good idea for airflow, but it leaves me wondering about the space and placement for an AIO in combination with it and how that might affect temps.
