Whilst Streacom may not be officially part of this Indie grouping, they are indeed a small bunch of enthusiasts determined to do something different in amongst the mainstream “SFF” offerings. Mentioning SFF by name in their mission statement, it...

Lazer3D’s CG7 Cravo – Flexibility

Initially known as Project Gregory in the SFF Network forums, the CG7 is touted as a flexible, customisable, SFF chassis with so many options to choose from it boggles the mind. Instead of offering a single setup, options, be it at time of purchase, or via included components, mean that your CG7 will be different from any other.

Lazer3D’s HT5 – HTPC with Lasers.. Sorta

Silverstone CS280 Reviewed – DIY NAS Made Easier

  We would like to thank SilverStone for providing us with review sample of their CS280 8-Bay 2.5″ NAS chassis. Without their generosity, this case review would not be possible. At CES 2018, Silverstone had a large number of 40 liter+ cases on display (which we chose not to cover). Unfortunately for us, the ITX market was largely ignored at their suite.

Breathing life back into the Thin-ITX form factor is the Impactics DMono, designed for Gigabyte variants of Thin-ITX. This appears to be your typical Mac-Mini inspired Thin-ITX chassis, but with one twist – there are no fans!
