Just adding that I've found baidu threads for these, you can just Google translate the webpage :) Looks like the K133 will be matx so won't go further into that but the K77v2 will be 9.7L and a quote from SGPC "The small tail is removed, the top with a fan holder supports two 9cm argb fans, the tail supports one 9cm fan, and the bottom supports two 9cm fans or 12cm fans (depending on the size of the motherboard), because it supports 230x205mm motherboards, yes, There is also ATX power supply and SFX dual support" (Note: Google translated).

Also very interested because he said that there's vertical support for it? :eek: "Handle accessories are sold separately, supporting both horizontal and vertical placement, saving desktop" or is that just talking about placement for the handle :/

Hi all, been lurking this thread for a while as I have been planning on getting a Ghost S1 replica for quite some time now. I think I have narrowed the case that I want down to the Acat X1 (https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=616405946850). For most of the cases on Taobao, I generally look at the reviews with photos, but this case's Taobao page is restricted from being viewed in the US, so I cannot look at the reviews for myself. This is making it semi-difficult to personally get a good grasp on what the quality of the case is like. I figured I should ask here and see if anybody has any experience building in the case or knows any of the primary differences between this and Louqe's version. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

the taobao page doesn't have any reviews yet, as it's a pre-order page. i'm sure a full build and review will pop up on chiphell as soon as the case gets shipped out

If K77v2 is truely to fit matx MB, ATX psu, and so many fans then it's actual size should be around 13L.

This thread discuss particularly the SGPC K77 v2. Its Taobao page seems to be removed. Maybe it is pre-ordered sold out?
Page 2 has some nice pics of an ES.

Translating the threads and some comments from the official account: Some cases seem to have received a price drop, K17 for example is 99 rmb now.

K30 - 230x205mm motherboard support, 1U PSU, 50mm CPU cooler. Design is meant for R5 and i5s.

K39v3 - 0.2L size increase, motherboard support increased to 230x205mm, GPU support increased to 200mm K49v2 - 4.9L, 230x205mm motherboard, 110mm CPU cooler, 1U PSU.

K55 Pro - A standalone add-on for the K55, an outershell that doesn't have any screw holes or panel gaps, part of the new pro series

K59 - Console style case, 5.9L, SFX and ITX, 310mm GPU. 47mm CPU cooler clearance at least. Also some extra space for GPU at at least 50mm

K66v2 - motherboard size increased 245x205mm, GPU increased to 200mm, also has a handle now. 55mm CPU cooler, uses ATX PSU's fan for exhaust

K70 - K77 but shorter GPU at 24cm, supports two 92x25 fans, SFX-L PSU reduces GPU length to 20cm, tail is gone. (think conswole pig tail if you don't know what the K77 tail looks like)

K77v2 - Tail is gone, 2x 9225 fan support, 230x205 motherboard support, ATX and SFX PSU supported. 9.7L

K133 - full size MATX, ATX PSU, 330mm GPU, 135mm CPU cooler, 6 92mm fan spots, dimensions are 34x15x26, handle bar available, both horizontal and vertical placement possible

Hi guys, Can someone tell me the GPU clearance on Aklla a4 itx? And if it differs for the ATX model? I'm seeing 50 mm in the example pictures but also read in other places 58 mm for example. Planing to use it with a 2.50 slot gpu. Thanks

looking at the Taobao listing it is consistent 50mm everywhere for me. Where do you see 58mm?

There seems to be two Aklla a4 versions:

The Aklla A4s itx that says it supports 58 mm GPUs.

And the Aklla A4 itx that supports 50 mm GPUs:

Exactly, but it's this true or just a mistake from their side?

is carbon fiber really the best material for a case?
"
Heat conduction mainly depends on transfer/conduction of energy from areas of high temperature to areas of low temperature. Highly heat conductive materials transfer temperature more easily than materials with low heat conductivity.

Composite made from carbon fiber and epoxy resin is a material with heat conductivity x 40 times less than aluminium and 10 times less than steel. Therefore the assumption may be made that carbon fiber is a very good insulator."

Yes. However, a case mainly relies on its air-in-air-out design to handle the heat problem. My guess is >98% by convection and perhaps 1-2% by conduction through the case panels.

I think most people would accept this little tradeoff to get a much lighter fibre carbon case for better transportability. Actually, I think the case layout/features/aesthetics will decide.

Hey guys, I know it's not exactly case related, but I came across these blower fans, do you think it could help with ventilation in tight spaces?

Any fan is probably going to help. The question would be their use cases. I don't think there are many cases where getting one of these would be better than just getting a regular fan of the same size.
