    We need a completely new open form factor (Actually, just a small change)

    chx's idea did'nt ignore peripheral cooling. Just look at the tower cooler setup people do for their CPU cooling. Beefy CPU tower cooler with 120/140 mm fan(s) blowing air from front to back through the tower heatsink, and along the way it provides sufficient airflow for the VRM heatsink behind...

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

    C7 is forced to be off-center to clear off the inner DIMM slot, forcing C7 to overlapp part of the chipset and the M.2 SSD. Have you confirmed that the C7 mounted onto a CPU on X99E-ITX/ac will clear the top of the chipset heatsink as well as the top of the M.2 SSD/screw? I believe the center...

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

    I don't think GALAX and Colorful are not affiliated and don't OEM each other. "Galax GeForce GTX 1080 iGame" in that wccftech article probably is a typo and it should be Colorful iGame X-TOP, whereas 1080 HOF is strictly GALAX. Speaking of GALAX there is another non-reference GTX1080 by GALAX...

    What case design do you want to see made?

    The riser used the way Findecanor does serve the purpose of allowing the GPU and PSU to not block each other's fan intake, the PSU fan facing left, the GPU fan facing right. Of course you can move the PSU in Necere's render to the top of case to achieve that goal without a riser, but Findecanor...

    Digging up an old post... QinX, have you gotten a reply from Avago? Curious to know their answer.

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    Sorry I haven't caught up with the thread so I'm going back to refer to Necere's post from a week ago: There were such cases 10 years ago though it's not so SFF, was quite popular in my country where they were sold: (the second case is a special edition of the first allowing an ATX/SFX PSU...

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    Comparing the layout of ATX and mATX X99 boards I see there's larger power regulation section located north of CPU socket on most of the ATX boards vs to the side of DIMM slots on mATX, the latter prohibiting 4 additional DIMM slots. Looking at how ASRock managed to cram everything on their...

    Necere, has this one already been scrapped?

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

    Ah, I see. Hmm. The reason I asked this is because I was thinking the front logo orientation issue could be solved by providing a stand for horizontal placement as well instead of the typical four corner feet with the same aesthetic (a rectangular face right underneath and flush with the...

    Skylake-Based Z170 Gaming Mini ITX Motherboard

    Looking at Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming ITX/ac I see MegaChips MCDP2800 right behind the top HDMI port, the same DP1.2-to-HDMI2.0a bridge chip that's on Gigabyte Z170X Gaming G1 and ASUS Z170 Deluxe. ASRock's already providing the necessary HDMI firmware update on their site noting that the latest Intel...

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

    I'm looking at the photos and can't figure out precisely which part of the chassis is steel. Are those long narrow strips going from front to back (but not all the way) that the filter sheets are attached onto made of steel and just screwed to the aluminum chassis? Also, why is the ID plate...

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

    To the best of my knowledge, the distance from the center of the CPU socket to the nearest DIMM socket wall is approx. 41~42mm for X99E-ITX/ac and 44~45mm for EPC612D4I, so I don't think you can install Cryorig C7, Thermolab LP53, Silverstone AR-05, or Noctua N9i/N9a (or any other heatsinks that...

    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    Sorry, I stand corrected.
