    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Yes, having multiple tiers for people who want to support the project but don't need the main product works well for other types of crowdfunded projects, but it doesn't seem to apply to cases. That's definitely not the reason the campaign failed though, that was more price and overestimating demand.

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    I'd leave the early bird option open and just fulfill them on a first come, first serve basis once it's time to actually start taking people's money. There's a big difference between the number of people who register interest on a form (since it doesn't really require any effort or commitment)...

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    5mm overall length. Lian Li uses custom screws with a shallower countersink than ISO standard M3 though. It's come up a few times, best bet is to contact NCASE support: https://www.ncases.com/contact

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    Last I heard a component shortage delayed production until later this month, I'm not sure how long after that the units will be available at retail though.

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    Late Q2 last I heard.

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    Considering how much we nit-pick about the noise of the SX600-G and SX500-LG, they're probably taking their time to make sure it's solid, at least that's my hope. I talked to Tony a few days ago and the SX700-LPT production was pushed back a few weeks due to a part delay. I'm not sure how long...

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    The clips in the prototype are indeed too strong, we'll be using weaker ones for production.

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    I've talked about this before, and it will come down to what people want. The interchangeable rear plate is better for ATX-only people, great for people who want to switch, but sucks for SFX-only. So if the majority want SFX-only then the current design will stay. We'll be sending a survey out...

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    The handle is optional so removing it has no effect on the base price. The machined hole in the top panel is just for the prototype, the bracket that the handle screws to wasn't quite aligned with the vent pattern in the top panel. The production design already has a solid back panel, having...

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Sometime soon after the campaign ends we'll send out a survey to those who did back it and start to figure out what we need to do. Even ignoring the price, Cerberus is a very niche design so I certainly wasn't expecting universal praise in the comments. I think part of the problem is we...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    It's not just a matter of moving the pins around, several wires on the 24-pin and one on the PCIe are doubled on the Corsair set.

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Ah sorry, my comment wasn't directed so much at FnordMan's question as it was to clarify to people reading this thread that the noise/wattage chart isn't set in stone.

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    I just wanted to make clear that the fan can come on even if the load is under what's on Corsair's chart if the temps are high enough. Also, I stand partially corrected on the fan controller, it's a combination of the load and temperature: The Corsair User Forums - View Single Post -...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    That noise/wattage chart is just a rough estimate. The fan controller is temperature based and not load based.

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Oh nice, I have a case mod idea that could maybe use that. I'm using the ASUS X99-M WS right now though so can't do much with its M.2 slot.
