Looking forward to any build pictures from end users. As I've still to decide between cube or flat case to place beneath monitor.
Wish more manufacturers focused mid-range requirements instead of getting carried away trying to fit monster graphic card that bumps case dimensions.
Was looking at the new pictures and thought about PlayStation 2 logo that could be rotated if you changed orientation of console. Probably too labour/cost intensive compared to current logo.
As a example.
Looking at it the N could probably be aligned differently as could be mistake for a Z.
Thanks for the pictures Necere.
One work-around I thought of at the time (without considering practicality) was having the graphic card output connections facing the front of case, and using an extension similar to the principle of PSU extension used in M1. But still stuck with PCI riser...
Looking at Newegg pictures (fourth in selection) showing card back it seems the extra length includes the plastic shroud extending past circuit board. Could contact EVGA and ask for confirmation and if a revision is due.
Only recently became aware of this project, were as the M1 had more community word-of-mouth that fed back to [H]ardforum.
Going smaller is definitely appealing, as the shoebox style case versatility is wasted on me. As I personally just need mid-range graphics card support, capable/quiet CPU...
Is anyone running a MSI Geforce GTX 760 Gaming using the two Molex connections with an adaptor to 8 pin auxiliary power?
Just the use of an 8+6 pin instead of more common 6+6pin auxiliary power surprised me.
I'm passively running a i5-4570S (lower base speed but turbo boost is same as normal 4570 speeds) using an old Enzo Technology Ultra-X CPU cooler in a SG05 with the 300W semi passive PSU.
I plan to fit a Promlimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 fan underneath the heatpipe fins blowing air upwards...
To cover future upgrade has anyone tried an AMD R9 270X using the Molex to 6pin adaptor cable to connect second auxiliary power?
Going by power consumption values from TechPowerUp reviews it should be fine, as similar to a 660ti (ignoring the stress test maximum Furmark).
MSI 270X Gaming...
Like the looks of ML07, and hopefully can support weight of a monitor resting on it.
Hopefully it's not limited to black only. And if available in white, silver, etc. Also have the interior match unlike the SG05.
I'd like to re-use a EnzoTechnology Ultra-X CPU cooler when upgrade. Providing it can cool Haswell non-overclocked CPU up to i5-4670, preferably passively or using PSU/case fans over one directly fitted to heatsink.
Dimensions of heatsink available on this link.
Seems most suitable choice...
Any measurements available for MSI Z87I Gaming AC CPU socket distance from PCI Express slot?
Looking at my existing air cooler, that I wanted to re-use, it needs 28mm from the fixing holes on motherboards.
Appreciate seeing final product pictures comparing size. As I prefer them to renders, or trying to visualize by other means.
Wish I went for an M1 now, as subsequent cases I've been waiting for have been disappointments. With nothing new on the horizon that I know about.
Checked their EU website and price has nearly halved since I last checked.
Not sure if worth taking the gamble, or go with Silverstone SG05 Lite. The only advantage I can think of is quieter PSU compared to Silverstone SFX PSU.
Has anyone repainted the Infinity case? As I take it you got...
I have a Silverstone SG03 that I’ve been considering re-using for mini-ITX, but too much wasted space for an air cooled system.
Your case design look like an evolutionary successor squeezing the dimensions down further. Which is appealing to me.
Still waiting to see what MSI Z87 Gaming series m-ITX features. Has a place holder red silhouetted imaged with coming soon.
Is there any reviews of onboard audio of available models? As EVGA Core3D is only thing making me consider it, if it's better than Realtek ALC1150.
Looks like it could use a filter in the base to reduce dust entry.
The top fans, by default, blow out and ambient air enters base though the holes matching case lid.
One way to stop me placing papers on top of case.
I always thought Munkle's example above would provide better cooling for graphic cards.
Graphic card cooler heatpipes seem disadvantaged in tower case ATX format, as the liquid coolant would be pooled up at the end of heatpipes in the fins area instead of on the GPG core, and only the vapour...
That picture made me wonder how long before someone takes a cross section out of case and re-joins the two ends, making case less deep. Should be able to reduce depth by a few centimetres looking at the space available between motherboard and front radiator.
