A lot of new case designs are using flexible PCIe risers, and for a good reason. They allow for flexibility when placing the GPU, enabling much more efficient layouts.
There are many different risers out there, so I thought it would be helpful to have a thread where we can collect information...
The FSP500-50FSPT is a short FlexATX PSU rated at 500W power output and 80+ Platinum efficiency, made by FSP.
As is typical with these PSUs, it is not available in retail stores and doesn't have any connectors for graphics cards. I want to change that, so we need to plan out a...
Just received this unit today and thought I would take a look at it.
It's the only 150mm long FlexATX PSU with full modularity, and at 300W it has enough power for an R9 Nano and a decent i7.
The awesome thing about that is that you can make your own cable harness with perfect cable lengths...
I received the HDPLEX Silicon riser (click "Package contents" for more pictures) today and boy what a great riser that is.
This might be the one I've been looking for all this time.
Here are my first impressions:
Costs about 1/3rd of the 3M riser, about the same as the LiHeat...
A GPU is not the only thing one might want to put into the GPU compartment, and I've recently made a change to allow for a fan swap. What would you put there?
First hinge and Front I/O prototype.
First prototype has arrived, and while...
(Imagine the Top+Side cover to be perforated)
This is just a draft, but I wanted to get the idea out, it was in my head for a week or so :D
There are a lot of cube cases like the Jonsbo C2 that use the free space above the mainboard for the PSU, which of course has the inherent...

Slim slot-in ODDs like this one(http://www.silverstonetek.com/product_legacy.php?area=en&model=SOD01) are pretty much the only way we can get optical drives in small cases without huge compromises.
The ones I found seem to all be of the same size (128x129x12.7mm), and have the slot in the exact...
