Sorry but I have to disagree here. It shouldn't be the customer job to get it delivered. Dan also clearly state on is website that the case will be available worldwide.
God ****... http://www.ncixus.com/products/?sku=138688In case anyone's looking for some sick RGB ram for their Dan A4 i can recommend this:
Fully RGB LED strip on the top, customisable with Aura software making it a perfect match for the Asus Z270I Strix (feature available Feb 2017), Ram height has been personally measured by me to be 45mm top to bottom making fitment no issue for the Dan A4. The build quality is excellent and looks almost exactly like the aluminium you get on Lian Li cases so visually its a good match as well
I already picked up a set of 2 x 8gb 2400mhz for my next build, along with the SF600 and Cyrorig C7 i already have. Last 2 items I'm waiting for are the Z270I Strix to drop in my country, and of course, the star of the show, the Dan A4 to arrive at my doorstep
I will offer a list tomorrow with all countries.
I think I have bad news for some international buyers. It looks like OverclockersUK do not ship to every third party country. I will offer a list tomorrow with all countries.
To not start a panic here US/Canada/Australia will definitive work on OverclockersUK.
Do none of you guys live in Germany? I'm sad that no one has posted receiving tracking numbers
I received mine today. Such a beautiful thing. Congratulations Dan, what an achievement!
Been following this project since it's inception and backing the Kickstarter was a no-brainer for me. Alas, I currently have no use for the A4, as I will be embarking on a long travel in February. That's why I had contacted Dan about selling my order at the end of the last year, and he gave me the green light. Then I received the update that the case would really ship in January and I decided I want to hold it in my hands just once after all these years.
And it was totally worth it! It's insane how small and light it is.
If anybody is interested in a SILVER A4, send me a pm.
So I would just like to write a few words about the last component I bought for this case. The SF600/SF450 power supply (I have both at the moment).
I tested them yesterday at the place I made my apprenticeship with their professional test equipment and I have to say I am amazed by both power supplies.
For my two units I was able to get the following results:
The SF450 minimum efficiency (20-100% load) was at 20% with an efficiency of 88.5%. At max load (510W) it had an efficiency of 89.8% and the maximum efficiency of 93.2% was reached at 280W.
The ripple of the 12V rail on the SF450 was always bellow 28.7mV and at peak efficiency (280W) it was 23.1mV.
The maximum temperature delta of the heated air to ambient (exactly 21°C) was 9K.
The SF600 minimum efficiency (20-100% load) was at 20% with an efficiency of 88.2%. At max load (640W) it had an efficiency of 88.6% and the maximum efficiency of 92.8% was reached at 330W.
The ripple of the 12V rail on the SF600 was always bellow 27.5mV and at peak efficiency (330W) it was 21.3mV.
The maximum temperature delta of the heated air to ambient (exactly 21°C) was 4K.
I sadly didn't have any good equipment to test noise. The problem was not that I didn't have a sonometer, I had one, I just didn't manage to get the PSU into the small anechoic chamber without disconnecting the electronic load.
Just from listening I would say at 300W (average of their peak efficiency) the SF450 was just a tad quieter than the SF600 but not by a lot.
Bellow 200W both of them were almost silent (meaning that I had a hard time isolating the noise of the test equipment to only hear the PSU).
In conclusion efficiency wise these PSUs are insanely good. The ripple voltage is also pretty good (not quite high-end but definitely higher midrange) and noise wise they are both very quiet. the SF450 being a bit more quiet but also running about 5K hotter.
I personally will keep the SF600 but there isn't really a clear winner.
Great work, this information is gold I got my recently bought SF450 at home, waiting for the A4. Did the SF450 make it all the way up to 510W on the secondary side? That's good to know (Even though it will be close to impossible to be able to draw that amount of power with the A4 )
Did you check to see how much draw was needed before the fan started spinning?
