    Flexible PCIe risers

    I tried that, it didn't work. It seems like there's huge signal integrity loss in the physical connections, much more than in the ribbon. So, with the way the HDPLEX riser is designed, by adding one more riser, you add two physical connections instead of just one. So with two risers, you have a...

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Sorry it took me so long to reply, I'm not on [H] often anymore. You're right. With the way things currently are, I can't hope to get 300 units sold. Well, free as in terms of money, but it would cost me a lot of time as I have zero experience with video production. Luckily, I do have...

    Hutzy XS — Ultra Compact Gaming Case (<4L)

    Well, I was working on the specs for the FSP500 with Hahutzy to make sure they fit the Hutzy XS, and Necere voiced interest in doing a FlexATX design some time in the future. I can't imagine LianLi wanting to take care of a consumer FlexATX PSU, but if they did, I don't know how they could...

    Return of mDTX ... at Asrock

    Unless you're watercoolilng the GPU. It still limits your options because not all have single slot I/O, but at least in theory you can pack a decent punch in there.

    Return of mDTX ... at Asrock

    Unfortunately, the first board is quite a bit longer than ITX, so it wouldn't fit into most of the cases the do currently support mDTX.

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Update! Lookout on price and shipping times. Finally got an offer from FSP today, and we're getting close. This was not the final revision of the unit, but I don't think any of the changes we still have to make would add to the final price. TL;DR: Maximum price should be $130 USD before tax...

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Small update: I've created a spreadsheet to collect all information required for running this PSU properly. Google Docs link For now, information in there is limited to extension cables, but that already should be quite useful for everyone. If you have any additions, just add them to the...

    500W FlexATX PSU

    First version of drawing complete! Today I've finally completed a first version of the drawing! Link to PDF. If anyone finds a mistake or has objections, please tell me! The division of connectors to the 12V rails is not final, everything else seems pretty much fine to me. I'll add this to the...

    Project H20-Micro a Watercooled 3 Liter system with GTX970

    I'm not him, but I don't know how active he is on [H] so I'll answer. This project is on hold for now and might not be revived for quite some time to come, as QinX is working on building a business around a little simpler products and this one is too expensive and time intensive to make right...

    Flexible PCIe risers

    Good to hear it was helpful! Well, you're still saving a lot of money when going with stiff risers, so there are good arguments to go for those rather than flexible ones.

    Flexible PCIe risers

    Because distribution chain management is complicated and costly, probably not worth it for sintech. What I find more astounding is that Streacom doesn't stock a fitting ribbon cable themselves. They offer a case that requires it, I would expect them to have the necessary accessories available...

    Flexible PCIe risers

    In that case, NFC might be able to sell you one of the flexible risers he's using in his S4 Mini Chassis. Not sure how active he is on [H] at the moment, but you can easily reach him on SFFn. You can see pictures of the riser in the thread for his case. Hope that's helpful.

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Now, that's the stock version that was posted somewhere above as well. It even has the same error in the specification that it did back then, mentioning an over-current protection on the non-existent -12V rail. Once my version of the FSP500 comes to fruition, you will know about it :D

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    That's the first time I've ever seen a GPU actually employ the PCIe standard support bracket. But yeah, the GALAX 1070 will have similar issues, certainly. Especially in this case, one will be running quite cool and the other one will be boiling. Not an ideal setup :/

    Xolid 13 – Show-off ITX case with clear side panel and extensive compatibility

    It's a nice idea and I like that it's a small double chamber design, but with a solid glass panel, the GPU is going to run extremely hot and loud. There seems to be almost no space between it and the side panel. Also, is it called Xolid or Hexolid? Your post and title disagree on that.

    500W FlexATX PSU

    I've been using a sample of this PSU for some time now, and I can tell you that if you're using an ITX GPU, it will be louder than the 40mm fan at any time. Remember, this unit is platinum-rated, so at 50% load it needs to have an efficiency of at least 94% wich yields about 13W of waste heat...

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    Ah I see, my button is 18.5mm long but as I said, the connection is on the side, so maybe that's enough in this case. You can take a look at this thread if you want to know more, but as I said, it's still in development.

    500W FlexATX PSU

    -12V Progress! This might be the most boring schematic I've ever done. And the PCB isn't much exciting, either: It's a very simple solution with an isolated DC/DC supply and a connector. The PCB is 27.4mm*13.7mm and is only using SMD components, so it can be glued to the side of the...

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    What are the dimensions of the power switch you're using? I'm working on an RGB power switch with a low profile and side-entry connector, maybe that would solve the problem here.

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Should work a treat, you'll even have a good bit of headroom left. Keep in mind that you'll have to mod the 24pin a little to turn on both PSUs together. Thanks! I'm working on it, but right now it's slow-going legal stuff, so there's not much to update on. While I technically have a...

    Ah good to know! Well then, good luck finding another 300 people who want it :D Or is that unit going to be available in retail as well?

    Man that prototype is looking sharp, great work on that! Does it already have your riser in it?

    Full GPU 3.99L case

    I was gonna say, that's pretty much the exact same build. How big was it again? Just under 5L, right?

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Yeah because they mention it in the product title just to get into a search results. Make sure to link me your build log once you started it!

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Look at the specs: It's a 1U unit, Flex is 81.5mm wide. You can also see on the pictures that the fans are in series, so that means a lot of additional noise for very little increase in cooling performance. Not to discourage you from trying it out, but I wouldn't expect too much from it.
  29. iFreilicht

    500W FlexATX PSU

    You mind sharing a link? Because if it's just got two fans in series, you won't get better cooling performance from that, and two fans in parallel aren't possible with Flex because then you'd either have to divide the whole PSU into two channels on the inside or not have any space for the C13...

    500W FlexATX PSU

    I'm sure if FSP starts producing Titanium rated units, something in that ballpark will be possible. Give it a few years. ;) Remeber that FSP has only begun to dip their toes into the consumer market with the Dagger series recently. Before that they exclusively were an OEM for other brands and...

    500W FlexATX PSU

    I can appreciate that, but if length is less of a factor, 1U seems like the better choice anyway. There you can even get 700W Platinum cooled by two fans instead of one. Ask LukeD how great a PSU that is :D The thing is, they probably don't. Flex is mostly used in servers, so a system...

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Yeah that pisses me off as well. It looks like it's the exact same design with lower quality components.

    Engineering School Project: <5.5L Gaming Case W/ Full Sized ATX

    Well I wasn't really worried about thermals, but I'm pretty sure that just the sum of the volumes of all those components is larger than 5L, and you still need to build a box around it. What were the dimensions of your cardboard prototype? Any pictures of it? Also, if the PSU sticks out the...

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Funny you'd ask, here's one. Thanks for answering the survey, btw! About that new, better PSU: So I received the list (which apparently isn't confidential, so take a look here), and unfortunately the new Flex PSUs with 650, 750 and 850 Watts, while including a -12V rail, are only going to be...

    Engineering School Project: <5.5L Gaming Case W/ Full Sized ATX

    Wait, you want to build an LZ7, but with ATX support and almost 2L smaller? I don't see that working out.

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

    The only part that you would be worried about being damaged by a magnet is an HDD. Guess what's inside that? Multiple electronic magnets for the seeker and spinner motors. That wimpy magnetic tape is far from being strong enough to affect your HDDs data in any meaningful way.

    500W FlexATX PSU

    Short Update: I know there were no updates for a while, and I'm sorry about that, so here's a short roundup of the situation: Freilite e.K. is now incorporated and has a proper website and email address, so I'm now legally allowed to sell stuff. A better solution for the -12V problem was...

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

    Yeah that was a bit of a bummer. Maybe I'll be able to pay a second visit to the faire today. I found out FSP has a booth, so I kind of have to go :D It's funny how that hobby changes your perception on switches :D That's probably why I disliked it as well.

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

    Hey everyone! I was at electronica today and took a short look at the A4-SFX. Here's a few pics. (It seems like [H] can't embed imgur albums anymore) Unfortunately I was at 3Ms booth at 16:30 or so, and dan was already gone. Would've loved to talk to him! Just a very, very short first...
