Very ambitious for cooling that thing with a 39 mm tall cooler :-p
I'll make a 47mm cooler fit. Stay tuned :D Still pretty ambitious. On an open Testbench my Thermalright X47 Full Copper can handle the 12700k at ~120W before it begins to throttle.

My Densium 4 arrived today, but the poor thing had no chance in that packaging material. The wood panel seemed ok, but the rest had to be replaced. Otherwise it looked nice, so looking forward to get the replacement.

I ordered my 4+ a couple weeks ago or so. Does that mean i am getting a revised 4+? Could you briefly explain the planned changes? Will it affect the size? I got an evga 3060ti just to fit it in the 4+ and i am worried about it. I dont mind waiting a bit longer for the revised version if it is worth the wait either.

It will affect the size a little bit, but not the hardware support!

Thought I'd share some pictures of builds I'm working on with the 4 I ordered. I love the look of the cases so far.

For context, these machines are meant to be the compute portion of a storage cluster and will be connected to jbod enclosures. Because of that you'll see they don't have GPUs but HBAs instead.

The supermicro board installed into the case:


The backside:

The clearance between the fan, heatsink, and side panel. Some would call this meticulous planning, others would call it immense luck:

The exterior after closing up:

A picture of three almost completed builds:


And finally, a funny side by side between one Densium 4 and my Caselabs SMA8:
