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

    The AR11 was previewed at Computex 2017, and Aiboh took some measurements at SFF Forum that looked like it would be just barely too big for the A4 without replacing the fan. Looks like the final product ships with a thinner fan and will be able to fit in the A4 stock... but I imagine a lot of...

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    Aibohs review sample was air shipped to him directly last week, ahead of the rest of the retail units which are shipped on a ship or something. Tylerrob's post refers to retail units entering the US, which hopefully means they are by now on the way to neweggs distribution warehouse.

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    On Wednesday, a user on sffn said that the sx700 was going through customs. SilverStone SX700-LPT - 700W SFX-L Platinum-rated Should be any day now

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    You're not alone in your impatience, I keep checking newegg multiple times a day :P I keep waiting for Aibohphobia to post his reviews, because if the PE750 is of similar quality, or made by the same OEM, I'll just buy that instead of waiting for Silverstone. I'm amazed that nobody else has...

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    FYI, the 750W SFX PSU from Lian Li is now available. I hope the SX700 shows up soon and we can see some comparisons.

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    I might not need all 700W right now, but since I buy PSUs so infrequently, I might as well get something that could handle a future build that might have different requirements. The SX700 is probably as close as future-proof as I'll get, since it can fit in almost any conventional case and can...

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

    I took a look at the 3M website for the riser cable, and they have datasheets about the riser and the cabling that it uses. Despite the metallic appearance of the cable, they are not conductive. It's a translucent polyester film on top of an aluminum sheathing. The melting point for polyester...

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

    Maybe you missed dondan's post: DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world tl;dr: the C7 beats everything else dondan previously tested - by a significant margin - even at 40% fan speed which is "very very silent". AFAIK, the only downside to the C7 is that the fan is not easily replaced...

    EVE Online

    Those are the new Sisters-of-Eve faction ships. They were intended to be used primarily by explorers in deep wormhole space, bonused for exploration and stealth, with a focus on lengthy excursions without frequent docking/resupplying.

    EVE Online

    So to prove your point, you picked out an absolutely ancient screenshot. Eve's graphics have come a long way since then. As for gameplay, well it continues to evolve and improve. Eve has never been an "arcade" style spaceship game, so it's not at all twitchy. But if you think it's "just...

    So what does a curved monitor actually do?

    Curved monitors are nice in the sense that the edges of your screen are more visible because they are closer to you. For productivity, that's great. Why not? For games, however, curved monitors can be problematic. Part of the rendering process for a typical 3D game engine is to transform object...

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

    You could also buy an adjustable strap handle, like the Strap A Handle or velcro straps or you could make your own.

    Okay, thanks for the response!

    Custom 92mm Radiator/Pump/Resevoir Combo?

    A cylindrical column radiator sounds very challenging. You could try to mimic the original Zalman Reserator, I guess, but you wouldn't be able to have the central fan you mention. If you're thinking of something that still uses the traditional tube&fin heat exchanger paradigm, I can't imagine...

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

    After hearing about EKWB's new AIO cooler, the Predator, I opened up sketchup again to see if it might fit in the Nova. Unfortunately, the sketchup file for Nova is fairly out-of-date (still showing the top-fan mount, doesn't have the shifted motherboard position) so it's kinda hard to tell for...
