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...Loud SFX PSU? count me out.
The Core 500 is already the pinnacle of SFF gaming cases. It's $50, Includes drive bay mount, includes 140mmfan, and will take any standard ATX psu.
For those of you with unrealized dreams of DTX, you should pick up the Sliger SM560. It supports three slots, sandwich-style comes with a adapter for a bifurcated 2x PCIe 16x riser.
It's expensive, but picky people can now find their corner-case :
EDIT: look,s like they discontinued the Core 500! Maybe it's a replacement?
Wild, the mystery Fractal chassis has not even been announced yet, we know nothing beyond a teaser clip of the corner of something, but you already have the price set at $270 ($450 minus a $180 PSU)...?!?I'm sorry, I'd rather pay 90 bucks for a gold quiet psu. Case + PSU is under $200.
Paying $450 for case + PSU is a rich man's pleasure. $90 Gold PSUs have the exact same reliability lifetime and warranty as (8-12 years) as your $180 platinum.

Regarding my choice of PSU, I wanted 750W of power, so the Corsair SF750 was the only option...
It's a problem. And could very well make this a flop.The airflow limitations are... concerning. And very consistent.
Honestly if the case can't do 240mm for the CPU and then 120mm for the GPU, I'm not really interested. This should be possible in this class of ITX enclosures, and should be something that manufacturers are providing a provision for.It's a problem. And could very well make this a flop.
Wonder how it would perform with a Hybrid style 120mm aio GPU, rad on top and another 120mm for the CPU next to it?
Not sure it would all fit tho.
Bummer, it looks excellent.
I have a Fractal Nano S as well for an AMD Ryzen 2700/Vega FE, using CentOS. It was bigger than I though but works very good none the less. It is very quiet and since being in the bedroom that is a very good thing.Looks cool, If it would have been around at the beginning of the year I would have given it a shot, as is I have a Nano S.
I like Fractal, simple designs that should age well.
