    Forthcoming Fractal Design SFF chassis...!?!

    Usually yes but Fractal actually recommends exhaust for this case.

    Yeah for the price I would like to see aluminum, least it is under 17l.

    DAN C4-SFX: The smallest water cooling case in the world

    Except everyone is doing AMD builds now and AM4 motherboards don't have the usb c header.

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

    pslate will open up orders again on Mar 2 and you can get the 24 pin both with and without the sense wire.

    CCD MI-6: Performance in a 6.7L MIcrotower

    Good luck actually finding one of the 2070 itx cards, when Nvidia brought out the Super they discontinued the non Super versions so both the Gigabyte and MSI are impossible to find anymore. MSI has a product page for a RTX 2060 Super Aero itx although I haven't seen it for sale anywhere yet.

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

    Have you tried delidding the CPU? If not makes a huge difference, usually 15 - 20C improvement.

    CCD MI-6: Performance in a 6.7L MIcrotower

    The sleeved cables included with the Platinum will be better than the flat cables included with the Gold, you will still have very long cables for the MI-6. I found custom cables just made things so much easier to build in the MI-6.

    What are my NCase M1 cooling solutions?

    You can only fit a 240mm radiator at the bottom if you are using a GPU with waterblock that is single slot. With a dual slot GPU you only have 25mm.

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

    Noctua NH-L9A is probably still the most popular, add a fan duct for better cooling.

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

    I would take either bubble wrap or those little air bags and wrap it around the internal components, think you will be fine.

    Thoughts on the TU150?

    Lian Li manufacturers both the Ncase and Dan A4.

    Thoughts on the TU150?

    It is on the big size for my taste and is definitely a Ncase clone, one thing that is an improvement is the front intake which will help exhaust the GPU heat out the back.

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    They are actually very good, even at load they are very quiet. The Noctua are better, 94,2 m³/h vs 86,29 m³/h and 23,9 dB(A) vs 30,4 dB(A) but until the slim chromax are released these will work fine.

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    Updated the fans on my Ghost, I have a 34mm radiator so was unable to use 25mm fans. I was using Deepcool Gamer Storm 120 x 20mm but there were two problems with them, first was the funky blue color that did not go with my build and second the grill was sitting nearly on top of the fans and I...

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

    I just checked Noctua's site and the C14S is listed as fully compatible with the B450i, not sure if you will need it but it should give you the best cooling in the M1. I am also about to do a new Ryzen build and went with the B450i, from all the comments I have read it seems to be the preferred...

    Buy it from Overclocker UK, from what I understand their shipping to the US is very fast.

    DAN HSLP-48: A powerful sub 50mm heatsink

    Obviously a huge pain in the ass but those are incredible temps for that CPU in a Dan A4 SFX.

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

    I totally agree. I have been planning an AMD build and I am seriously considering moving my gaming rig back to my M1 just so I can use this motherboard.

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

    I was really hoping it was less than 75mm so you would have clearance for radiator + fan.

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

    You are going to need at least the Ncase for this. DTX size and with the height of that daughter board not going to fit in many SFF cases.

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    Yes it is, I haven't had a chance to do any benchmarks but have been playing Rage 2 all weekend. 5 - 10C cooler with the radiator at the top. The fans are not bad, they look a bit cheap but performance is very decent. They move quite a bit of air and are reasonably quiet. Edit: First benchmark...

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    Got my custom cables from pslatecustoms, these look great and fit really well. The pre-bent 24 pin cable is especially nice. Although you can't see them I have a dual SATA power cable and a molex cable for the pump. I decided to move the res/radiator to the top because I was never really...

    Too wide. Strix is 2.7 slot, Ghost only supports 2.0 slot.

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    Thanks for the tip on the hose clamps, I was pretty sure I needed to move them up further on the barbs. I need to get a decent pair of pliers, I only have needle nose and couldn't get a really good grip. The quality of the Barrow block actually surprised me, I was a bit hesitant about ordering a...

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    Well got everything up and running and I am super happy. I have a delidded 8700k running 4.4 - 4.6 GHz 1.20v and with my Big Shuriken 2 was hitting max temps of 75C, which I felt was really good for a cooler of that size. Just ran Prime95 and with the loop hitting 55C max with the Noctua fans...

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    My GPU block arrives tomorrow so I have everything I need for my loop. Started prepping my build, installed the Swiftech Apogee Drive II and have the radiator setup. Nice thing is now I can install that sexy TridentZ ram. As you can see in the image below with the Koolance low profile 90...

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    I have a set from AliExpress from a previous build I am using in my Ghost currently, I have a custom set from pslate on order. 200mm 24 pin is actually longer than you need but short as you can get, I have a 200mm 8 pin EPS and it is about perfect and a 300mm for the GPU also about perfect.

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    Here is a picture with the radiator mounted, I have to say the clearances are very close. Any bigger and I wouldn't have been able to fit it in. There is a very small gap at the bottom below the top hat, but in this picture you can't even see it. Fortunately I am not using the 240mm fan...

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    I would prefer to have it on the top, but my problem is the radiator + fan = 59mm which is 2mm taller than the top hat and the top panel sits on the fans. I test fitted it on the bottom today and it should work fine. I just attach the bottom mounting platform to the radiator you don't even...

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    Chapeau thought I would share my Ghost build with you. Specs are in my Sig. Really like the case, built like a tank. I am planning water cooling mine also, nothing as grand as yours. I'll be using my Swiftech Apogee Drive II, I got some Koolance low profile 90 degree adapters to keep...
