MB: Asrock B450 Gaming-ITX/AC (shipping)
CPU: 3400G (4000-series later, maybe)
Cooler: Noctua NH-L9a-AM4
RAM: TBD (Likely TEAMGROUP E+ 2x4GB 2400 cl16)
Storage: Corsair 128GB SATA SSD, to be upgraded later.
So far I've got the case and CPU cooler. I've unpacked and disassembled the case...
GN tears down the nifty new Intel NUC. I am hoping this takes off and spawns more variations and cases:
Also, I would really like AMD to get in the NUC/SFF game sponsering some alternative designs of it's own.
Update. You can also plug the element card inside your current PC, to have a PC in...
Involved in this new itxcase, just as tester,
and i'd like to show this "Expandable SFF Case for watercooling enthusiasts"

Just as the title says: is there any interest in a case roughly the volume of the Ncase M1, but capable of holding two 30mm thick 280mm radiators? I am in the (early) process of creating such a case for myself; but since I'll be doing the work of creating the case anyway, I wanted to gauge...

I'm about to finish my Node 202 build and I was contemplating attempting something, but I wanted to know if this would cause issues with the fans "fighting" each other...I'm not sure how else to word that.
The L9a uses a 92mm fan that is 15mm thick. I will be trying to overclock my 1700x as...
This is the first post I've made here for the S401 as I've been more active on the SFF network forums. My first venture into case design was the S400 which some here may remember. I actually posted my build thread on this forum before I discovered the SFF network forum. Being more directly...
Following my previous project (the HTPC One), I realized I personally wanted smaller.
The goal was to use the HDPlex 80W with The Shappire FS-FP5V for a small >2L flexible thin client.
The goal is to use this for local renders/simulations that my laptop cannot handle.
I'm getting the board...
I have noticed a few people expressing a desire for a sub 4L case that allows for a short dual slot graphics card and miniITX motherboard, so I figured I would start this thread as a place for people to talk about it without feeling bad about hijacking some other thread.
There have been a...
I'm planning on making an mITX relatively SFF build with the plan to get into VR in a year or two.
I've seen the release of HTC Vive WiGig Wireless Upgrade which seems to need a PCIe slot. Is it expected that future most futures wireless implementations will require a PCIe slot, and that an mATX...
I haven't done a build log in YEARS, my professional life has gotten in the way of documenting creativity even though I tend to get the build-itch once a year and part-out an old system to make room for a new one. This year I got the SSF itch. Two years ago I did a SFF build using...
I'm just curious, apart from size and shape, what are the major functional differences between SFX and TFX PSUs? Are there specific advantages of one over another? Of course, using a full-sized ATX PSU is often not desirable when building and SFF machine, so that really leaves SFX and...
I came across the a picture of what appears to be the Dev board for the Intel AMD project. It is looks like an awesome form factor for SFF.
It doesn't seem to quite match any current form factor, but looks very well laid out.
It looks like a slightly bigger STX board, but still very small...
I started to design my dream case. Project Vertical is a 19.9L mATX case with a small footprint, optimized for high-end hardware, excellent cooling and silent operation. An optional 15.6 inch touch-display makes the case more useful when standing on the desk.
Hi, I'm a new member of the [H] forum, but have been reading for a while.
I want to buy an Nvidia 1070 (or 1060 if this is wiser) for a Dan A4, but I have no idea which brand / model to go for!
I'm most concerned about noise, and then either thermals or performance... I can't decide.
I need a work computer, and I don't really know where to begin as I haven't been updated in the hardware field for a while. I've copy/pasted the relevant questions from the sticky blow:
1. What will you be doing with this PC?
Programming, compiling code, lots of stuff running at all times.
Hi, I wanted to post my Node 202 build. Parts are:
-id-cooling is40-v3 (CPU cooler)
G.skill FlareX 2×8gb 2400
Chieftec 500W SFX-L
Intel 600p 512gb
EVGA 1080 SC
So yeah, I have AMD, Nvidia, and Intel working together great :)
It's meant to be HTPC/4K gaming...
Dear forum members. Today is a big day for me. Today i am announcing officaly that i need your help. I would like to open up a new company that makes small form factor graphics cards.
Now i what i am planing for this company? I am planing to make all king of small form factor GPUs that i will...
The idea is to have a quick and easy docking solution for laptops that have no centralized docking feature with added eGPU support, extra laptop CPU cooling and hidden cabling. All a gamer may need in one flat package.
EGPU Case assembly (50x20x7cm):
Bolt the eGPU and...
Recently I replaced my Desktop with small form factor PC. It is an excellent experience when customizing a computer. Now I present you my tiny HTPC that runs MacOS Sierra. It doesn't have any Graphics card because my aim is to make it smaller, so I'm using the Intel HD Graphics.
So I just finished this mITX build in the NCASE M1. I'm very satisfied with the results and the PC works great. The idea sprung from seeing Bluehandstech's M1 build, I instantly knew I had to get this case and watercool it. I decided early on that I was to use hardline tubing only, and with...
This case project is inspired by an issue presented by my friends, which is:
They want a small PC like the ITX builds they see online, but they can't afford to buy everything you would need (SFX PSU, case, motherboard and cpu cooler).
My less fortunate friends buy used pc parts to save money...
I was planning on a new case project and thought that the IO-opening and PCI-E slot took a long time to make for previous case with hand tools. Considering I wanted them even close to good looking, an idea came to mind if small quantity of these could be laser cut at a nearby company. -They...
Hope you like the result so far! I'm eager to hear what you think :)

It seems everyone is concerned about stuffing the biggest GPU into the smallest case, but I am thinking I might be able to get by with AMDs new Raven Ridge APUs coming later this year.
If you ditch the GPU card, it seems a lot smaller options should be available.
So has anyone researched any...
So up to this point I have been running a Cryorig C7 on my i6500; this cooler is considered by many to be the pinnacle of SFF cooling.
I have been following the CoolChip kinetic cooler for about 2 years and was ecstatic when I saw Thermaltake may finally bring the product to...
Hey, guys, I am here to share my PC case project called Xolid 13.
[Update] Our third prototype is finally here
Empty chassis (front) and assembled
Front panel, lower end
One configuration with ITX motherboard, 240mm radiator, full sized VGA card, and SFX power supply...
I'm kind of disappointed by layouts of SFF up there lately. For long time I'm having idea of a new (but not very revolutionary) concept I didn't seen anywhere. Closest to this idea is Raijintek Metis.
Metis case however has lots of compromises and cannot support high-end gaming system...
A few days ago my mobo/processor just gave up the ghost and so I thought maybe this is a great time to build that SFF PC I have always wanted. I have a bit of an idea where I want to go with it but your advice would be appreciated.
Here is what I have been looking at so far....
So I'm thinking of bumping up the horsepower in my NCase box which currently has the SFF 970. Is there anything out there that has better performance of a similar size? Or may be coming down the pike soon?
I'm brand agnostic so either AMD / Nvidia is fine.
Hey guys, looking to build a SFF PC. Will be used as my daily driver w/ occasional gaming use. GPUs will mostly be used for work purposes (cracking hashes). Smaller the better, but being quiet is my #1 concern.
On to the questions.
1. What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming, Photoshop...

Does anyone have a recommendation for a best air cooler in this small size form factor?

Bye, bye 750ti. Please welcome the GTX 950 as the new upgrade path for an OEM PC. 75w is really nice!
So just got my Brix Pro i7 yesterday. I installed the following:
-Kingston HyperX 2x8gb DDR3L
-Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA 250gb SATA 3
-Hitachi 1TB 7200 rpm SATA 3 HDD.
-USB keyboard and mouse
-connected via HDMI to a 32" HDTV
I have a Windows 7 Pro bootable USB ready to installed, but when...
This case looks intriguing, I like the looks and it seems to be slightly smaller than a fractal design node 304 while supporting excellent cooling and its light (2.4 kg). Anyone have any thoughts on this?
