Raijintek’s Ophion Evo – Tempered Glass, RGB, but SFF!

At 20 litres, the Raijintek Ophion Evo just hits the limit of SFF volume, but it offers a lot to entice Large Form Factor (LFF) fans to the right side of PC building – our SFF world. From satisfying the current trend of RGB and tempered glass, to the ability to mount fairly high end hardware, the chassis is a taste of SFF for the masses. We had a quick look at the Ophion and Ophion Evo at Computex 2018, now it’s time to look deeper at the Ophion Evo. Ophion was an elder Titan god in Greek mythology, ruling …

Raijintek at Computex 2018

Raijintek, a smaller company, popped up on our radar as we wandered the halls of Nangang Exhibition Centre in Taipei. Small cases.. slim radiators.. value oriented water blocks? We decided to take a deeper look, and here’s what we found! Two SFF cases caught our eye. Tempered glass and RGB abound of course, but the designs are clean and understated. Using Li-Heat risers, these relatively small cases are designed with aesthetics firmly in mind. That’s a 25mm thick, 360 AIO cooler. Li-Heat and Raijintek have been working together on products such as this right angle GPU mounting solution. A 25mm …

SFX Computex 2017 roundup

As promised, here is the SFX power supply Computex 2017 roundup. While not as extensive as the SFX-L roundup and they’re mostly budget units, more competition and options in this space is always very welcome. Akasa As covered in the Akasa booth article, they have two upcoming SFX units of 350W and 450W capacity. They are non-modular, feature a 92mm fan, and are of Bronze-equivalent efficiency. I say equivalent because the display units at least did not feature a 80 PLUS rating but a “85% efficient” label instead. The OEM is Sirfa/High Power. Cooler Master When we checked in with Cooler Master …

SFX-L Computex 2017 roundup

There sure were SFX-L units all over the exhibit hall at Computex this year! I love this because I truly believe that SFX and SFX-L have the potential to supplant ATX as the standard form factors for PC power supplies (reducing the space the PSU takes up inside the case in the process), and we’re starting to reach an inflection point of SFX and SFX-L PSU availability from multiple companies. The reason I say that is because having more SFF power supply options encourages case manufacturers to design around the form factor, which in turn creates a bigger market for these PSUs, which encourages …

Raijintek shows off SFX-L, SFX, and a PCIe extender

Raijintek had a 450W SFX power supply at their booth last Computex, but as far as I can tell it never came to market. But this year they are showing off two SFX-L units. First is the LSFX-series Gold-rated 500W(?) Raijintek PSU-4550 unit. As can bee seen on the sign, it features all-Japanese capacitors and will include a SFX to ATX bracket. It is fully modular. The sign says 500W, but the label advertises 550W as max load. The 12V only does 41A though so I would personally consider this as more of a 500W units since most modern systems are so …

Raijintek shows off “Micro ATX” and SFX PSUs

Raijintek is probably a name that isn’t super familiar to SFF enthusiasts, but they’ve been making inroads into the market with their ITX Metis and mATX Styx cases. At Computex, they’re showing off new power supplies that are of interest. First are the so called “Micro ATX” units. I’m not fond of the name because the term “Micro ATX” or “mATX” for power supplies is confusing since it’s not an actual standard and it has also been used to describe power supplies of the SFX and ATX PS/3 form factors. Quibbles about the name aside, they are ATX power supplies …
