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

    Even ignoring optical support, the constant strip looks way nicer.

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    Shame more people aren't interested in top mounted PSU layouts. Not sure why that is. :(

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    I really like this. 1b layout is very much my preferred layout. The front of this looks very nice. I like the air intake and the IO is much nicer that the M1 style.

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    Yeah I was thinking it would look pretty good like that. Though as you say limits it to desk only and is more like to be obstructed even so. Perhaps flip it so the "V" cut out is pointing up and move it to the very top of the case. Though that would mess with ODD. I guess it comes down to who...

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    How is the space for cables like usb3 on the bottom of an atx board, would the PSU interfere? The front IO seems kinda out of place, the chamfer is nice.

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    I like side vents... Front vents end up looking more dusty. Solid front panels let out less noise and look cleaner, just my opinion.

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    I like 1b the most. I don't mind top mounted power supplies. They get less dusty and help cool the system. The extra space at the front should allow for water cooling with shorter gpus. Slim drive is good for some people and you could fit the IO under it perhaps. The 1b layout with a...

    New Deepcool ITX cases

    Not the most efficient designs, but Deepcool sure know how to make in interesting case. If the Tristellar is sold here I might have to buy it!

    Inside the Falcon Northwest Tiki (11.7L case)

    Nice overview! I've liked this since it was first released. Never had the money to buy it sadly... Ended up just getting an RVZ01 many years later. I still think this is one of the best slim towers around, especially given how long its been out.

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Not unexpected. I have some of the Silverstone fine mesh filters, they seem to cut out loads of airflow.

    Looking for decent 2.0 speakers

    Worth noting that they are unpowered and over $220aud. Kinda out of budget.

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    5 slots is a pretty big deal for me. Love the fact that this has it while still being so small. If I want ! card only I use itx.

    Razer Leviathan. Anyone have one yet?

    Its only stereo 2.1 and no wider than a keyboard. I'm doubtful it has good stereo effect even more so that the claimed 5.1 Dolby will help matters. Reviews also said its sleep timer is a pain. Will be interesting to see what you think of it. Razers old 2.1 seemed better but they stop...

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

    As a RVZ01 owner its OK... I really don't like the windows (also not good design for filters). I'd buy a windowless model. Sadly Silverstone don't seem to do that much. My RV03 only came with a window, and the SG05 I wanted seems to aswell.

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

    If both could be black or metal that would be great! Pink and green is ugly.

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

    I like this new version. As for no front mic jack I don't seen an issue. The case is small, getting around the back is easy. I could do without the line out too. At a LAN I would just have your headset in the back.

    Audioengine A2+ vs M-audio AV40 : who give more deep bass ?

    I'm really happy with my sp2500. Still great bass and little desk space used. The sub is pretty big though.

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

    The number of HTPC and "steambox" cases that support ODD is huge. Why is it that the few or only options that don't, have to be changed? Take one of the many options that suits you. Thats the last time I comment on the matter.

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

    Looks wise this is the one I like most, with or without the ODD. I will be using the case with the stand. In the end though it still leaves less room for the video card. But the lines and centered power Look fantastic when the case is vertical.

    I agree with this. People can just tuck a little receiver away somewhere.

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

    Super exciting, loved this style since the steam machine! I even got a rvz01. Edit, Couple of comments I actually like the hole/slot combination. I also like that the power cable is not right at the top. The Stand is nice, the boltv1 and tiki were a little big and flashy for me. The rubber...

    How many of you leave the your case sides off? (Open Air?)

    Closed. Its only left open if work is progressing slowly. My sff was open for a few weeks with a HDD hanging out. Temps and dust are better if its closed up, that and it just looks cleaner.

    Asus G20 12.5L SFF desktop

    Finally some sense. Its getting hard to read SFF news on most sites. Its like they cant comprehend the power that sites in SFF. Or that you can install windows on any or these "steam box" Computes. Its like any SFF case just devolves into a steamOS debate. This looks pretty good I am...

    Audioengine D1 vs. Creative ZX

    I game pretty heavily 20-30+ hours each week. Unless you use the software, surround or mic features. You would be better off with an external DAC. Do you really need 600ohms? If you don't need the features simple quality is better.
