    News - EVGA dabbles with custom-designed Mini ITX barebones

    And includes a decent watercooling kit and 500W PSU to get you started.

    I think it's great. There are a lot of mini-itx chasis that really don't fit the gamer profile.

    Provided EVGA get the price and PSU noise right I think I'll have to get rid of my Sugo SG06.

    Watercool the graphics card as well and they have a really nice product.

    "it needs to launch a wider range of products in order to insulate itself from any potential fallout from a poorly-received release." ...or, when there is a lack of new releases from Nvidia. In my experience EVGA has great customer care which is the starting point. I like the looks of this, and ready to go WC is great. EVGA could go further in their vertical integration and launch a WC HTPX line, and the client could order the case with their choice of motherboard, SR-X or SR-2 mounted, graphics cards installed, PSU installed, just add the processors. BTW it looks like EVGA went the budget route with this and show it in Jacob's hotel room.

    Looks like an interesting alternative to a Shuttle - shame it's going to take them so long to release it!

    Agreed. Loved the old Shuttle I had, but the fact that it sounded like a bl**dy jet plane when you started hitting the processor hard made me get rid.

    Question: a "240mm radiator" sounds pretty impressive, or is this marketing speak for 2x120mm? Thinking that a 240mm fan is going to be pretty quiet, which hints (to me at least) that this could be a darned good HTPC candidate.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    EVGA has good customer care _ i say good cause their lack of bios to the EVGA Z77 FTW motherboard is taken for ever. Still on Beta versions after 6 months. Great motherboard but buggy bios.

    Sounds like it will be just in time for haswell, hopefully EVGA get in gear and release an ITX board early this time as it would be an awesome lil' rig

    I'll be following this one quite closely. Looks like the mini-itx form is about to get some real attention in the gamer market.

    Re: News - EVGA dabbles with custom-designed Mini ITX barebones

    I can see major problems with this already.
    They will have to include their Z77 stinger motherboard as it's the only one that will fit in this case.

    The Z77 stinger is the only current mini ITX motherboard with the cpu in this position, all others have the cpu directly above the graphics card slot which in this case is where the PSU is
    evga


    everyone else


    But from what he was saying it's just the case + psu + cooler which is really stupid if only your motherboard fits it.

    Really stupid? Or perfect manufacturer tie-in? If I was a mobo manufacturer and I realised I could design a case that only my mobo would fit in properly, why wouldn't I do that? People who like my case get tied to my mobo. Perfect

    But it wouldn't it be far better to sell your motherboard with the case?
    Like shuttle does, although shuttle make their current cases around their motherboards but also allow for other standard mini ITX boards to be fitted.

    I love the Idea of a small form factor PC but I would rather go for something like a silverstone fortress ft03 mini.
    I also love large form factor cases like the 800D and my 650D.

    The Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe has the same layout, albeit the VRM is on a vertically mounted daughterboard which could potentially interfere with the case.
