You can use an ATX PSU even in standard version but you can do your own. We thought at the beginning of the project using a DC/DC board but go back to use more standard solution. At the end you may be able to reduce the case by 4/5cm but I'm not sure the aesthetical proportion will be nice.Strongly considering this case but would probably do extensive modifications on the bottom. It's a lot of unused space. Gonna try to use a 520W Nightjar and lay it horizontally, chop off extra length and try to rebuild the bottom structure. Really really good job on the combined passive heatsink though. Just not a fan of the wasted space on bottom. Ooh, might even go smaller and use an internal DC/DC board
We will propose them to the website as "on demand". We are not thinking to stock them.This is really a nice build. Nice performance with such high power CPU. 160W !!!
If you ask about 2 top and bottom mods for 200mm fans on thingivers, they have same form (but plastic) of skin as case, but useless and ugly without skin. And more, bottom enclosure was never 3d printed and tested by now; top hat defenetly need some changes, but I need to fin time to integrate them (but still, top hat works fine already).5.Are the DIY case mods for the 20 cm fan on top and on bottom skinnable? I mean, is their outer contour the same as the case with or without skin?
I'm really into your awesome
case heatsinkproduct! To clarify some stuff before I buy:
Thanks a lot!
- Is the Asrock Z390M-ITX/ac supported by The First? It looks like a nice ITX board -- the only component I am currently missing for doing the switch, and it seems to be part of the prebuilt Intel system.
- Do you support the Powercolor Vega 64 Red Devil? I assume the PCB is similar if not the same as the regular Powercolor Vega 64, but I am not quite sure (looks a lot like "all the Vega boards" and the PCB is 27 cm)
- Are the DIY case mods for the 20 cm fan on top and on bottom skinnable? I mean, is their outer contour the same as the case with or without skin?
- Would the Free custom 3D printing parts offered with the premium package include those two?
- Where does the PSU pull it's air from? Inside the case? And if so, isn't that bad for the air flow?
Thans for your feedback. We designed a first version of transparent skin for computex. Indeed there will be some very limited skin available or on demand but I'm not really happy with. Even if it's a nice solution I think we go wrong showing the GPU.The frame and structure of your work is amazing, especially the beautifulness of the huge heatsink and the orange and black colour scheme. Are you planing to design a transparent shroud to show it off?
Ain't the Seasonic Fanless 600W a tad bit too big? According to Seasonic it's 170 mm (L) x 150 mm (W) x 86 mm, which is 10 mm more than The First allows.Hi Markus,
5. Take Seasonic Prime 600 Titanium Fanless - it will not pull the air at all =)
Hm, you are right... I wanted to buy this one for my build =(Ain't the Seasonic Fanless 600W a tad bit too big? According to Seasonic it's 170 mm (L) x 150 mm (W) x 86 mm, which is 10 mm more than The First allows.
Or can you mount the PSU sideways (lying flat)?
In fact the 420W is fitting perfectly.Hm, you are right... I wanted to buy this one for my build =(
@Monsterlabo, could you please confirm that this PSU is not compatible? I'm pretty sure that I saw somewhere your builds with this PSU in the end of 2018. Or something changed or I'm mistaken?
Edit: My bad, it was a 420W PSU, not 600W.
Hello, I think the cable of the Corsair PSU won't be sufficient.Hello Monsterlabo,
I'm going to buy PSU Corsair SF600 platinum. The PCIe power cable is 400mm long. Will it be enough? The SGX650 you are using has this cable 50mm long.
And do you have any updates about 20cm tophat? It is the only point blocking me from the purchase of the châssis.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for the reply!Hello, I think the cable of the Corsair PSU won't be sufficient.
I'm using the SGX650 and it's fitting perfectly but I don't think 50mm shorter will be good.
For the Top Fan we had sincerely no time to work on it between our ordinary jobs and B2B work on the case.
I'm starting to work on this by tomorrow but for sure we will need to launch some modification.
I will put here pictures by the end of the week.
In the meantime, the 140mm can do the job
You are right, the 20CM wll be a nice option for airflow especially for the GPU VRM and back side of the Mobo.Thank you for the reply!
So in this case, I will go with SGX650. Which is even less expencise on your site than on Amazon =)
I would like to have a 20cm tophat because it should create an airflow in the gaps between the motherboard/graphics card and the chassis (will it?). It could be important for NVMe drive on the MB's back and GC...
You will be able to buy it separately if you already have a Fan.
