Is anybody else having trouble with the mower switch on there Velka 3 (or 5, they look the same)? I'm having to push the thing several times to get it to turn on.

How is the preordering on the website supposed to work? I thought preordering was to take new orders when the cases are out of stock, but it seems I am unable to preorder. Are we supposed to wait until the cases are in stock?

In Optimum Tech's video, he couldn't mount the HDPlex with screws and the rear plate didn't align with the power connector, has this been fixed in the latest version?
He was using the V1 Velka Im sure that has already been fix on the previous version!

I just got my Velka 3 and there was no way to mount the Hdplex 400, as the holes in the heatsink of the Hdplex are not threaded and neither are the holes in the bottom of the case.

What version of Velka 3 do you have? v1 or the latest 1.2?

Aren't there M2.5 threaded holes on the back of the HDplex? That seems to be what the hole pattern is on their website for the backside. The front side is showing the passthrough holes.

For anyone using the Enhance ENP-7660b PSU - is it taller than other flex PSUs? mine is touching the bottom of my mobo.

I can move things a bit for enough clearance to get the riser cable through, but just barely - I'm concerned about having the mobo, riser cable, and PSU all touching with all that heat.

Question, if you use the HDPlex 200 or G-Unique, could you mount a 2.5" drive flat on the bottom? I know you could just use double sided tape, but I have a 15mm 2.5" HDD that I'd like to hard mount to the bottom if possible. Could you include mounting rails for that in a future revision if they don't exist already?

I also think it would be cool to have 3.5" HDD mounting holes on the motherboard tray or the shell if someone wants to use a 3.5" HDD instead of a graphics card, possibly for a NAS build or an HTPC with tons of video content on it.

Just got my pieces for securing the GPU. A heads-up: if you’re using Zotac 1080 mini or Zotac 1080ti mini, the pieces DOESN’T solve the second fan scraping the side panel. In fact, as you can see from the picture, the holes on the GPU securing piece hardly line up with the holes on the GPU bracket.

I installed the piece and against my better judgement, cut the zip-tie the held my GPU straight. The fan scraped the side panel. I was also stupid enough not to check if I have spare zip-ties before cutting it. I’m moving on Saturday and I’m sorta f**ked.

TL;DR: just zip-tie your Zotac minis onto the motherboard bracket!!

I'm looking to take my first steps into the SFF world, hopefully with a Velka 5 when they are available again. As it's so tight on fitting, I just wanted to check if everything i intend to use will fit. Build is likely to be: Ryzen 1600 AF, Gigabyte B450i motherboard, black ridge cooler with noctua 12x15 fan, 2x8gb kingston value vlp ram, evga gtx 770 classified gpu as a placeholder until i can get a Palit 1660 super or a 5600XT if they are any good. Does all that sound ok?

Thank you Sir, i am going to place the order. Couldn't find any RTX 2070 mini for a decent price so this will have to do.
That card is 210mm long and the max length for the Velka 3 is 183mm so I don't see how that would fit...

In Optimum Tech's video, he couldn't mount the HDPlex with screws and the rear plate didn't align with the power connector, has this been fixed in the latest version?

Anyone try to mount the HDPlex with the 1.2 version Velka 3? Do we have a solid answer?

Here are the dimensions from the website:
Max GPU Length173 mm. Card Dimensions (L x H)173.48 mm x 111.25 mm. If Velka 3 supports 183m as mentioned above by MassZERO . There should be no issue. or am I missing something? Thanks.
