Is there a current standard rec for console-style ITX cases? I'm thinking about moving some old parts into a box that'd sit in my entertainment center and run Steam.

Best you can get right now is probably the Fractal Ridge. It's expensive but its the closest to a console form factor around right now. I've seen a few maniacs who've put 4090s in them.

okay im getting a sliger cerberus, kraken 280mm AIO, and an asus TUFFF BOI am4 m-atx to replace my 2006 Lian Li. the PSU sitting over the CPU is gonna bug me, but i donít care to spent another ~$200 on an stx(?) psu when my 850w corsair atx works

If you have the depth the ridge is what I'd run with

If you don't have enough depth but you still want a full size gpu, you can get the case I did, in a very xbox series x form factor, the sliger sv540, but you probably can't because it's out of production

This is helpful. I do need a horizontal orientation and I've got 16" depth and 6.5" height to play with. I'd be putting a 5600X and a 2070 Super in there and that's about it, so not the most difficult requirements.

It looks like the Ridge works, I was also looking at Sliger's CL530 which is on clearance as it's also being discontinued. Will go deeper on those two. Thanks!

Was wanting to look into replacing the psu cables in my system, hoping it might help with thermals and also look nicer, but it seems like it might be more complicated/risky than I originally thought.

How do you know for a fact the cables will work with your psu and not destroy everything?

They probably won't destroy everything if something goes wrong. But generally, buy from a reputable source that makes them for your specific build. There are a few vendors that have great reputations and will work with you to get it right if something is weird.

Cablemod are the big company that most everyone trusts with PSU cables. They have a compatibility checker on their site so go there, pick your PSU and it'll say which of their products are known compatible. They'll also do custom cables if you want to get really crazy.

I've bought from ModDIY including my current 4090 12vhpwr-to-Corsair SF750. Works perfectly.

The engine, code A855, has a cast iron closed deck block and split crankcase. It uses an 8.1:1 compression ratio with Mahle cast eutectic aluminum alloy pistons, forged connecting rods with cracked caps and threaded-in 9 mm rod bolts, and a cast high

I have dreambigbyray (on etsy) cables for my sf750, which are good but are not 100% the exact length I ordered. I got a moddiy 12vhpwr in the ultra soft silicon when I got my 4080, which has been good and was the correct length. Ray used the be the budget option with pslate being the nicer custom maker. Not sure if thats true anymore.

+1 for PSlate Customs

they're on the pricier side & can be slow if you don't shell out for expedited processing

but the quality & customer service were worth it: when i ordered VGA power cables for my M1 build, they reached out to ask if i had a 180į adapter so i could close the side panel & included a link if i needed one as well as a picture in case i was clueless

I'll also shill for PSlate. Customer service is spot on, and they were happy to work with me and provide custom quotes for a custom spec I wrote up, including checking my work on things like wire gauge vs. expected current throughput to ensure my enthusiast rear end didn't accidentally create a fire hazard.

Yeah ordering my Sliger CL530 took some time. I think it was like a 2 week backlog. Worth the wait though. I really like the muted industrial design and the case is nice and sturdy. Only con was that my case came with a bag of screws and I was left figuring out assembly on my own. I never used a lot of those screws, dunno what they do.

I built an ITX computer in 2017 (using the H200i, so not really an ITX case). I got laid off from my job, and I'm getting a very healthy severance so I want to build a high end computer (7800x3d and a 4080 / 4090 / whatever the AMD equivalent is).

What is the best ITX case for GPUs that size?

the fractal design ridge looks pretty good if you want the console form factor, and it looks like the updated ncase m1 is shipping in waves. Either should support any (air-cooled) high-end gpu

raring to post

Some popular cases:

Formd T1 V2
Louqe Ghost S1 / Raw S1
Cooler Master NR200
SSUPD Meshlicious / Meshroom
Ncase M1
Dan A4 SFX / A4-H2O
Fractal Terra
Sliger S620 / Conswole

Youll have to compare/contrast the specific GPU width and length numbers for all of em to make sure they fit and it will really depend on what card you go with. Top end air cooled cards can range from 360mm to 276mm, so theres a wide range.

I'm helping a friend build a "casual gamers" SFF PC without a GPU with the idea that she'll use the onboard GPU until a more demanding game is released that requires it. She's only going to be doing light 1080p gaming - Minecraft, Sims 4/5, Stardew.

My parts list is available here, is there anything I should swap out, or does everything look good? Normally I go with MSI motherboards, but their ITX boards are rather pricy. I'd also normally go with a Corsair SFX PSU, but they only seem to have SFF-L format over 750 watts.

Deepcool AN600 is basically the same as the AXP 120-X67 afaik, go for the one that's cheaper. 850W PSU is massively overkill even with the eventual GPU, everything else looks fine.

It would be a good idea to find 3600 CL 16 RAM, which will be a bit faster. RAM speed is probably even more important if you plan on heavy integrated GPU use.
