re the existing fan, it's not a standard sized fan header connector, from googling it appears to be a "laptop molex connector". Does that seem right to you? Do you know what part number that connector is pls?
It looks like a JST connector of some description, I think GPU fans use JST PH (2.0mm pitch) connectors, which looks about right.
The most recent Dell Optiplex 7080 Micro has a PCI slot option now, except it orients the GPU facing down. This might give you about half a slot height of extra space for heatsink/fans...
thnx will measure it up when my P350 arrives on MondayIt looks like a JST connector of some description, I think GPU fans use JST PH (2.0mm pitch) connectors, which looks about right.
::EDIT:: Actually on second glance, it looks like a surface mount connector, which means it might be a JST SH (1mm pitch), but they're only rated to 1A @ 50V according to the JST connector wiki.
I'm suggesting they're probably a 4-pin PH as they're rated for up to 3A @ 100V and have 2.0mm pitch, with through-hole connectors. Given the P350's fan is rated at 1.5A that would lead me to assume they wouldn't be using a 1A-rated connector

I've always appreciated your works getting smaller and smaller. Really liked the idea and just checked the prices on eBay desperately. btw, what happened to your website?
Have you thought about making a custom case for this particular build so it can also fit a dedicated PSU? A brick-less build like with your SMALL3 case but even smaller and using a 12V instead of FlexATX PSU. I'm sure you can still keep the entire build under 1.5L.
