    Cheaper version of the Kimera Industries Cerberus?

    Looking at more modern mobos & chipsets (from an AMD perspective), Newegg has a total of 43 mobos (I did not bother to look for dups, but I feel there are one or two). By modern I mean AM4 & sTR4 sockets. And speaking of sTR4, it was only for the first two gens of Threadripper, so no 3rd gen or...

    Wow, you must be living in the past, or have just been exposed to cheap SFX PSUs, because my Corsair SF750 Platinum SFX PSU hardly ever spins up the fan, and when it does it is whisper quiet...

    I just hope it will fit a mDTX motherboard, and does not come with a bundled PSU, as my Corsair SF750 Platinum SFX PSU is still running like a champ... And if it is some sort of a sandwich design, I hope they include a Gen 4 compatible PCIe riser cable...!

    New NZXT H1 SFF chassis

    You have three choices for an AM4 ITX mobo; Asus, ASRock, & Gigabyte. None of those have an internal USB Type-C header. I am personally hoping that we will get B550 ITX mobos sometime soon, I would think manufacturers would be including USB Type-C internal headers as standard at this point?
