    SFF Case for mini-ITX GPU/MB

    Any plans to revise design gtek? For GPU I/O issue caused by the different brands. And do another order run in the future?

    SFF Case for mini-ITX GPU/MB

    If anyone is fitting a fixed cabled PSU I'd love to see pictures of how cluttered internals look. Don't want to replace my ST30SF just yet if this case gets another production run.

    SFF Case for mini-ITX GPU/MB

    Looking forward to any build pictures from end users. As I've still to decide between cube or flat case to place beneath monitor. Wish more manufacturers focused mid-range requirements instead of getting carried away trying to fit monster graphic card that bumps case dimensions.

    SFF Case for mini-ITX GPU/MB

    Dilandar, have you tried his direct e-mail mentioned in post 304 (about two pages back)?

    The next NCASE project: a Steam Machine-style case (indeterminate)

    Was looking at the new pictures and thought about PlayStation 2 logo that could be rotated if you changed orientation of console. Probably too labour/cost intensive compared to current logo. As a example. Looking at it the N could probably be aligned differently as could be mistake for a Z.

    The next NCASE project: a Steam Machine-style case (indeterminate)

    Thanks for the pictures Necere. One work-around I thought of at the time (without considering practicality) was having the graphic card output connections facing the front of case, and using an extension similar to the principle of PSU extension used in M1. But still stuck with PCI riser...

    Also wish such a design was more common without making the case larger. But as Silverstone hasn't managed it then I'm not excepting a smaller company/individual to lead the way.

    SFF Case for mini-ITX GPU/MB

    Looking at Newegg pictures (fourth in selection) showing card back it seems the extra length includes the plastic shroud extending past circuit board. Could contact EVGA and ask for confirmation and if a revision is due. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487093

    SFF Case for mini-ITX GPU/MB

    How far did you progress with the assembly? And gathering information about feasibility of larger run? The batch of 10 you currently have are white sides and black top, or completely white?

    The next NCASE project: a Steam Machine-style case (indeterminate)

    Only recently became aware of this project, were as the M1 had more community word-of-mouth that fed back to [H]ardforum. Going smaller is definitely appealing, as the shoebox style case versatility is wasted on me. As I personally just need mid-range graphics card support, capable/quiet CPU...

    Silverstone SST-ST30SF - semi-passive 300W SFX PSU

    Is anyone running a MSI Geforce GTX 760 Gaming using the two Molex connections with an adaptor to 8 pin auxiliary power? Just the use of an 8+6 pin instead of more common 6+6pin auxiliary power surprised me.

    Upgrading and want to go quieter, what should I use?

    I'm passively running a i5-4570S (lower base speed but turbo boost is same as normal 4570 speeds) using an old Enzo Technology Ultra-X CPU cooler in a SG05 with the 300W semi passive PSU. I plan to fit a Promlimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 fan underneath the heatpipe fins blowing air upwards...

    Silverstone SST-ST30SF - semi-passive 300W SFX PSU

    To cover future upgrade has anyone tried an AMD R9 270X using the Molex to 6pin adaptor cable to connect second auxiliary power? Going by power consumption values from TechPowerUp reviews it should be fine, as similar to a 660ti (ignoring the stress test maximum Furmark). MSI 270X Gaming...

    Steam Box legacy ?

    Shame Silverstone moved away from aluminium, especially as it contributes to portability for Sugo range. Also prefer the bare look and feel to the generic black cases we have to put up in the West.

    Silverstone throws its hat in the ring for a Steambox style mITX case

    Wonder if anyone will make a custom riser so GPU fan same direction as CPU. So vent holes only needed on one side for both heat generating components.
