Is the superbuy agent now giving a warning on all case orders about restricted item? Or is this just boilerplate. I know on my K77 order and another case I got the same warning about items being restricted and not being allowed into the USA. I know at least one other person on Reddit making the same complaint when he tried to order a K77.

Anybody know of a small case that has a sandwich layout, either with a low pro gpu or full height itx gpu for use with an external brick?

check the item page feedback section, it has about 200 pictures of the product from customers

Is anybody able to tell me more about this case, or show me your build. I'm thinking about getting one for my friend and I because the premium cases (Ghost, Dan A4.. etc) are too pricey. Looking for any information from this trusty community!

I think you can get any small-enough case (which usually supports FlexATX PSU). Example is k39.

Use an external brick, and leave the PSU slot empty.. (or put additional drives etc)

Anyone find single slot gpu coolers on taobao?
Even if one existed, it'd be awful. There's basically no way to make a single slot universal air gooler for a gpu. Even the form fitted factory ones are pretty bad.

Pretty much to only way to properly cool a single slot gpu is by watercooling.

Yeah the kfa2 katana 1070 was not very good. And it was designed specifically for single lot.... I mean it was nice, but it didn't quite keep up with reference size (~270mm and 2slot) gpus especially when overclocking. And they tend to be louder since the fans have so spin harder to compensate for less heatsink heat dissipation.

I've got one. The build quality isn't the best, but its okay. My worst gripe is that the PSU sits on the bottom, so you have to run a power cable from the bottom of the case. For an SF600, the orientation of the plug is such that the power cable comes out at 90 degrees. Very ugly.

It also supports 60mm height coolers, but on my Deepcool Gabriel I get turbulence issues. Other than that, sure, its very cheap for the form factor, and supports installing a 3.5 inch disk on the top if you wish.

Hey guys , need a bit of help finding a case . So I'm using a Scythe shuriken 3 cooler at the moment with a 2 slot GPU , ITX board , running a 3700x and gonna go with the SF750 PSU . Most of the sandwich style cases on taobao seem to have a much lower CPU clearance and I would really prefer not getting worse thermals or getting a smaller cooler so any options with CPU clearance of at least 70mm ? Ideally something cheap but will take whatever help I can get in looking for one.

Hey guys I am looking into buying an ZS-A4 of Taobao. There is only one buying option at the moment Package A but before there was a Package B as well. Does anyone know the difference between them and if they own a ZS-A4 to share opinion about the case?

This is not from Taobao but found it on Ali Express, it's a small mini ITX case (APU only/no GPU support) that has swappable front panels and some of those look like the Dell Optiplex and Lenovo ThinkCentre designs. Very cheap and shipping is free to the US.

Unfortunately the one with the wood like design is sold out. :( Nice cheap find tho. :)

I saw that and was hoping it had a LP GPU slot a few days ago.
You're right, it does have that ThinkCenter vibe.

Hmm your opinion on it is worrying considering I ended up ordering one lol. Would you be willing to send me pictures of the PSU situation?
