Cooling

Maximum supported CPU cooler height is 70 mm. Some supported coolers include:

  • Noctua NH-L9i
  • Noctua NH-L12S
  • Cryorig C7
  • Arctic Alpine 12 Passive
  • Alpenföhn Black Ridge

2 x 80x25 mm1 fans are supported at the front of the case using the included fan mount. Both positive and negative pressure cooling strategies are supported. Positive pressure is recommended. The fan mount locates the fans away from the front vent to reduce turbulence.

1 HDPLEX and KMPKT DC-ATX may require the use of 80x15 mm case fans.

Storage

M.2 storage is recommended. There are six total 2.5" mounts:

  • 1 x 2.5" at top
  • 2 x 2.5" at front (in place of front fans)
  • 3 x 2.5" at bottom (in place of graphics card)

Graphics

Low profile (half height) form factor, dual slot width GPU are supported. For example:

  • ASUS GTX 1050 Ti Low Profile
  • Gigabyte GTX 1030 Silent Low Profile
  • MSI GTX 1050 Ti Low Profile
  • Zotac GTX 1650 Ti Low Profile

Power Supply

External PSU support is standard. An external AC-DC power supply is connected to an internal plug-in DC-DC (DC-ATX) board. We prefer 12V power supplies for their cool operating temperatures. Some options include:

Internal DC-DC PSU
  • 12V
    • G-Unique BTO
    • Mini-box.com PicoPSU 160-XT (160W/200W peak)
    • Mini-box.com PicoPSU 150-XT (150W)
  • 19.5V (16-24V)

New gallium nitride based AC adapters recently released will offer high power density resulting in smaller AC adapters.

Internal PSU are not officially supported. However, experienced users can mount an internal AC-DC PSU at the front of the chassis (in place of the front fans). The internal dimensions at the front of the case are (without fans): 200 x 46 x 86 mm. A power inlet may be mounted to a custom expansion slot bracket, or may be run outside using a pigtail connector.
