S4 Mini is in stock and shipping (I just don't know how to change the thread title) Hello guys and gals. Some of you might remember my last mods and side projects (S3 Elite and Mini). While I never got them retail ready in the end the project was a success and drove me forward to combine everything I learned into the S4 Mini. While I have been quiet on the internet, it is because I have been busy trying to make my dream a reality, and I am proud to announce that I believe I have! Announcement Video HARDFORUM Q&A VIDEO S4 MINI ASSEMBLY GUIDE My S4 Mini combines the luxury aesthetics of the S3 Elite with the ruggedness of the S3 Mini and at a price point that is down-to-earth for a small-run niche chassis. The S4 Mini is one of the smallest (if not the smallest) Mini-ITX chassis that support double-slot expansion cards (up to 8" in length) and comes at an exciting time for small form factor hardware: The chassis achieves this by embracing minimalism in the form of DC-DC power supplies, like the Mini-Box Pico or HD-Plex. Power supplies like the Pico 160XT allow for builds that are simple to install and elegant from reduction of wires. The S4 Mini is built with thick, premium, aluminum alloys that are anodized and dyed a deep black--even the pressed in hardware is anodized. My favorite aesthetic feature is the wrap-around 5mm thick aluminum bezel. The difficulty of the bend combined with the brushed, anodized, and dyed finish help contribute to the uniqueness of the S4. While not included, the S4 Mini has two mounting points for 120mm fans. A removable bracket is positioned over the motherboard and allows for a 12mm thick Scythe fan to be installed over the recommended heat sink. The bottom mount can accommodate a standard 25mm thick fan with a single slot expansion card installed, or even some closed loop coolers with short, thin tubes if the user plans to use APU/CPU graphics: For storage, there is a removable steel bracket that is powder-coated black that accommodates two, 2.5" drives up to 10mm thick with an expansion card installed: To install an expansion card you will need a PCIE slot extender (ribbon cable). I have had some custom made for this chassis for an ultra-tight fit and no wasted space: The exterior panels are painted with a custom powdercoat and are scratch resistant. The black texture is soft, but varied and adds some dynamism to the S4 Mini's uniqueness: As always I offer custom powder coating options. Pictured here for my Demo unit is my Prismatic Basalt on the black exterior panels, and a green candy over a silver artery: Thank you so much for all your support over the years, and for letting me announce my excitement on this forum!
