    GALAX Unveils a Single-slot GeForce GTX 1070

    jb1, I have to disagree with you here. Although the card may draw most of the power from PEG, they still need a lot of power from the motherboard, tomshardware review showed the GTX1070 drew around 70W constantly and can spike over 75W quite often when under load. And the PCIE slot will actually...

    GALAX Unveils a Single-slot GeForce GTX 1070

    The PCIe slot can deliver 75W, so dual GTX1070 is unlikely to happen with a PCIe splitter

    So we finally see a product with heatsink-impeller design, TT Engine 27

    Heard the tech a while back (2011), might be a good solution for low profile coolers. And Thermaltake finally release a consumer product. Thermaltake - 1U 27mm height!! 27(H)*91.5(L)*91.5(W) mm TDP 70W Waiting for some reviews

    Jonsbo RM1 the Tiniest ATX X99 build ever

    SFF should be 8-19L, IDC definition 21.5L is close, but still NOT sff the fact that there is another thread in the wrong forum does not justify posting more thread that does not belong to this forum

    MSI Nightblade M1 *GPU above motherboard*

    DIY market is small, and SFF market is even smaller, thats why large manufactures doesn't much effort on SFFs

    Using M.2 PCI-E lanes from NUC to communicate with external GPU

    also need to consider the max power output of the M.2 port, as normal PCI-E do supply power to GPU

    List of "Steam Machine"-like cases

    Interesting, but two things bothers me: 1. USB 2.0 only 2. net weight of 5.5 KG!!!!! ( according to the datasheet http://www.casepro.cn/datasheet/1525-datasheet.pdf although the website says 3.5kg)

    List of "Steam Machine"-like cases

    yeah, I understand, but what unique of the Valve prototype is that it fit a full size GPU, a SFX psu in a very small package. Not many other cases I see can achieve this

    Interesting new type of low profile CPU cooler

    does not look very promising after reading some articles for such spinning metal parts, the life of bearing and rotor will be in question secondly, they first aimed at enterprise market, but after quite sometime no company wants to adapt their tech, which might hint the failure of their product

    New sub 10L itx case, SilverStone RVZ02!!!

    Well, I believe for most HTPC users, an optical drive is necessary to play medias such as Blu-ray or DVD. And at 9.8L you can still use standard psu cables. But at 6.5L most non-hardcore DIYer will struggle with the cables etc. Silverstone is still a mainstream company, they have to make sure...

    New sub 10L itx case, SilverStone RVZ02!!!

    Saw this on tomshardware. Should have more details from CES 2015. This is a good console size PC, the only concern I have is the material, will they still use the old crappy steel frame or aluminum. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/silverstone-raven-rvz02,28312.html Raven RVZ02 350 x...

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

    These are some quite large cases - well, more like open test benches, the smallest mini-itx PC-05 is 21,7L (400 (B)394 (H) 138 (T)), while only supporting 20CM GPUs. The other two support GPU up to 29CM, but with much larger case dimension And I personally will not use an open case for my...

    A better and more beautiful Mini-ITX Case named CC. You might like it at first sight.

    I'm asking when can you provide because you mentioned several times that your prototype shows good results. As for top HDD, do you mean you can mount the HDD on top of the CPU rad or FAN?! If thats your setup, I have nothing more to comment.

    A better and more beautiful Mini-ITX Case named CC. You might like it at first sight.

    For GPU cooling, if you want to have decent air flow to the GPU, you can't mount HDDs at the bottom of the case, so 2 SSDs and 1 HHD is all you got for such large case at 20L. The 80/92mm intake fan on the rear will need to provide air for BOTH the PSU and 120mm CPU rad, I don't see how is...

    A better and more beautiful Mini-ITX Case named CC. You might like it at first sight.

    I would like to see your test results, care to share them to prove your point? Most (if not all) cases draw fresh air from the "outside", I really don't see the point using the heated air for CPU and PSU Sure you can mounting nothing at the bottom. My point being, for such large case at 20L...

    A better and more beautiful Mini-ITX Case named CC. You might like it at first sight.

    for the GPU, its not possible if you want to have 3.5 HDDs at the bottom. for a 20L case, 2 SSDs and 1 3.5 HDD are just too little As for PSU and CPU rad, there is only one 80/92mm "intake" fan in the back, are you sure it can supply enough air to the 120 rad for CPU and 120 PSU fan? Not to...

    A better and more beautiful Mini-ITX Case named CC. You might like it at first sight.

    I would say the intake for GPU is terrible, unless you don't want to fit any HHDs in the case Also PSU sucks hot air inside the case? Not a good idea For such big case at 20L, the air flow should not be this bad

    Azzatek Z - ITX case

    it may look similar to "Valve Steam Box Prototype", but no, its not a steam box the internal layout is different, more than twice of the size of Valve Steam Box Prototype, and even larger than an already large SS RVZ01

    there is no such thing as Steam Machine Clone The layout used by Steam machine prototype existed long before Valve made their prototype And that prototype just simply one of the layout they choice from existing PC designs. Steam machine can have with varieties of different shape and sizes...

    Thermaltake New SFF Cases

    Necere, the Lanbox Lite I bought many years ago has similar dimensions, and actually a bit smaller. And I believe the internal layout has not changed much in all these years. Thermaltake just failed in innovation.

    Steam Box legacy ?

    you totally missed the point of Steam Box, its never about the same chassis sure Valve made a Steam Box prototybe which somewhat resemble the traditional HTPC (or X51)layout, to show that its a game console sits in the living room, different than traditional PC. but Steam Box can come in all...
