Hopefully it fits, I did have to cut about 1/4 inch off the top/front of the DR Pro find to get it to clear the QI charger in the A1+.
Odd I don't recall having any issues? There might have been a little ram pressure, but install the ram then install the heatsink.
If it wasn't such a pain in the *** I'd take a picture for you :(
It looks like my CPU is mounted about 1/2" higher than yours... I ordered a new motherboard... Effing itx systems...
You have any issues with the dark rock hitting the QI charger up top? Thats what I'm battling now... I can't get everything lined up to mount the motherboard.
The DR Pro is a 163mm cooler, case is rated at 160mm cooler height. Any issues with the fit?
Just picked up an Inwin A1 plus, gunna put a 3900x with a DRP4 and my 2080ti!
Dude! I love that you 3d Printed your SFX adapter!!! I had an extra one laying around, but I've printed them before!
I have several of these too:
They have better reviews, and they're a little cheaper.
Its a 2 slot card (Gigabyte 1080ti Gaming)
I had a 2.5 slot card (Aorus 1080ti) that would not fit due to the height of the card. I couldnt not test the thickness.
There is close to 1/2 inch between the graphics card and the glass.
Oh yeah, I bet your top fans, PSU and SSD's will be fine :) Make sure you upload your build so I can see it when you're done!
Spire should fit, 70mm height as case supports 90mm max. Atx psu will fit, I used one at first but cable management is a pain. The supported location for a 2nd disk (HDD or SSD) is in the lower fan location, which I dont recommend. You'll want all 3 fans for cooling. Ive seen people doubling ssds with double sided tape in the 1 supported location under the front case shroud. You shouldn't have an issue putting 2 in front if they're 7mm ssds.

Hope that helps.
I'll do it when I get home from work, and update this post!
Naw a 15mm is sufficated by the side panel. RJK is coming out with mesh sides, I'll buy them when available.
I replaced the stock cryorig fan with a 15mm noctua and it's amazing quieter and better temps!
CPU, thanks I've updated the description.
Newegg. Looks like it's out of stock but check often!
Can you test the power supply to make sure it works? Did the EVGA come with a power on tester?
If that works I'd just straight up RMA the motherboard. :(
Naw it was pretty simple and straight forward. Booted the first attempt.
What video card and processor do you have?
And obvious question, did you flip the switch on the power supply? :)
Yeah! I'll do that tomorrow. I had to do a quick build, and upload :) It'll also look a bit different with the noctua fan on that heatsink instead of the default cryorig one.
I'm confused about your fan setup. Your bottom three fans are pushing air into the PSU compartment. Meaning the cooler air coming from the front fans are immediately being ejected out of the main compartment.
Your Video card fan pushes air towards the heat sink, which is the opposite direction of your bottom fans, meaning they're fighting for the same air.
I mean, they look great, but I don't think they're adding much value to your cooling and/or its just very inefficient.
1070ti and 1080 are great for high frame rate 1080p gaming!
Idles around 40c, 20 min synthetic load hit 75c
Unit is fairly loud, however under a desk it wouldnt be very loud at all.
(Update, there are 2 CPU fan headers, Header 1 has a nice silent fan curve, Header 2 is 100% all the time. Moved to header 1 and the thing is dead silent!)

Please post your build when you get it! I'd love to see it!
Its a bare bones kit. Search "Deskmini" on newegg, you'll find it!
Nope the front ports are audio, us 3.0 and USB type c 3.1
It'd make an AWESOME server, granted it only fits 2.5" drives. It'd pair nicely with a NAS. :)
It's on the motherboard it's a DC input PSU, external brick.
Ya I did some searching and didn't see anything, but then again my post didn't show on the search either. Soooo.... :)
Maybe from other manufacturer adoption. I could see that.
Thanks! I've been watching them for a while, finally was able to grab one, its wayyy wayy smaller than I expected. About the size of an ATX PSU.
Asrock (link in build list) has them on newegg. It includes case, mobo and power supply. Sorry, that makes it sound like I bought a retail board. Its a bare bones. I've not seen any STX mobos alone either.
They have 3 models:
intel CPU video (630 if you get the 8th gen version) - $157 (ish)
1060 6gb $599 at the time of writing this $799 retail
and 1080 for $1499, $1529 normally.
Search "DESKMINI" on newegg, you'll find them.
Thanks! It's a fun build, if you ever need a cheap simple small oc I recommend it!
Ah no! I heard rumors a while back they were contemplating it, but I haven't seen one come to market. A 2400g in one of these would be awesome!
I have a cryorig c7 it's in a friend's PC, when I get it back I'll test and report back :)
Checking back on this after looking. No it can't be oriented down as it hits the bottom of the case, it extends a little more than 1/4 of an inch past the board in its current config.
Lol, didnt take it as an insult, I'm just messy. If I don't clean it piles up! It looks pristine at least 2 days a year!
Also, why no build?!
When oriented towards the back of the case (right in the images) the cooler doesn't sit flush on the CPU. I didn't try "up" or "down" since its pretty long it hangs over the back of the motherboard. The 2nd reason I went with an SFX power supply is because the cooler would hit the PSU and couldn't be oriented this way.
:( I have to clean it like every 3 weeks. Thanks!
Not as much as you'd think. I drive destiny at 2560 x 1080 with over 150 fps.
The 8350k has a base clock of 4.0ghz, which gives it a 25% faster single core speed over the Ryzen 1700. Since 90% of games at most take advantage of 4 cores (some games going to 6 and fewer going to 8) Its a great all around CPU with excellent gaming capabilities.
The only other thing I might try is maybe putting another space on the glass holding stand offs to give you extra space to pull air in.
I really like it. Its my first "SFF" case, though I know there are many others out there smaller. It was a pain to cable, I started with an ATX power supply then swapped with an SFX. I heard they're going to come out with mesh sides (maybe) I would swap for those, even with the gap around the glass it gets warm. I drop 10 degrees by removing the sides.
I'll come back and update the thread with temps when these finally come into stock and I can snag them.
I'm so torn, having both a full ATX with maxes specs, and an ITX. I don't know which one is my favorite! All based on the use case I guess.
But why, what?
I actually went with this 360 in particular because its expandable. I'm going to drop in a 9900k and 2080ti under water shortly and I won't have to change my radiator.
Man you gotta get an SSD! Even if it's a small one. 120gb and 240gb are so cheap now!
It's completely silent until you launch a game, then it ramps up. With headphones in you can't tell at all, though.
I haven't yet. It performs well enough. I can stream at 1080/60 and get 120+ fps so I haven't really pushed more performance. I can play with it though and let you know my thoughts!
Nope looks like it's stuck at 16x9 and you waste half the monitor.
Yes 49", I'll try overwatch and let you know :)
Lian LI has an itx with a handle, but it couldnt handle the length of my 1080. I have a BF Prodigy as my server case and its WAY huge, like 3x bigger than this. I really like the looks, even though I have to wipe it down often. :)
Also, I don't transport it too much. I'm in my 30's with kids, so it probably sounds like I do more than I actually do! :)
