    @ Cheapskate : Thank you :) I know this site, but i am afraid to use many parts
    of this side in my modell. My PC is very old :rolleyes:
    The mainboard is from this side.

    @ GuilleAcoustic : I had a similar idea. The "book" of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
    with an integrated 15" Touchscreen

    Umm, I don't think your designs really belong in this small form factor contest, they don't adhere to the theme and just look like normal/large custom cases- might be better to put them in their own thread featuring your designs... :thumb:

    I didn't unterstand the contest as an sff contest :eyebrow:
    But you are right. I will open my own thread with a
    little project. No sketchup more pro/Engineer :D

    Perhaps I get a idea of a sff case. We will see.

    SFF with mATX is not that easy to be honest. You have to make some sacrifice. I have another idea I want to try with a completly different purpose.

    EDIT : Ok here it comes it a very early state. An all-in-one computer with acquisition cards and built-in bench PSU.

    Year, this is my opinon, too. A µATX isn't realy a ssf board ... its between ... like GuilleAcoustic
    said, with some sacrifice it is possible to build a sff case. I dont like sacrifices...

    Nice one there Dark :thumb:. I'm very tempted to try indigo. Thea is nice but Indigo seams better (and is not very expensive).

    future humidore

    :rock: Year it is a little nice red devil Dark~3nergy

    So because, my posts are still moderated, i post my last "renders" 12 hours before the deadline.

    I take the comments to heart and the last case is without any glamour. I call it "future humidore", because of the shape.

    [​IMG]

    Sorry for the low quality of the renders. But Indigo is too much for my pc.

    Its a little big to "fat" to be a sff. Its about 11 L ... with more time, i am sure that i am able to reduce the volume. It has 4 x 80mm radiators, one M2-ATX 160W Power Supply and two ssd's.

    Here is the wireframe of the case

    [​IMG]

    I hope the community like this case and ...

    May be the force be with you ... ähm .. may the best win :rock:

    Isn't the deadline set on the 21st ?

    Here is a little update on my electronic all-in-one devel studio :

    [​IMG]

    There will be a mu-metal shielding between the "computer" area and the bench-PSU area. The bench PSU is a single channel symetrical one (example -12V - 0 - +12V).

    The computer part will house 2x PCI multifunction DAQ card with low-profile form factor (VECOW MP-6675 far exmaple). With th esuited software it could then act as an oscilloscope.

    Hope you like the concept :D.

    Oohhh bloody hell ...

    You are right. I have to mush stress at work. So i am
    not able to read the correct date. This give me a great opportunity
    for the finishing ;) Hip Hip Hurra ;) Goal : lower then 10 L

    I like your design. It is similar to some instruments here at my work.

    some progress :)

    [​IMG]


    YenLoWang, thanks ^^
    Looks like you used a 100% black material in your render, you should brighten it up a bit like 97% black.

    GuilleAcoustic, that looks nice, i like the front. :)

    Hehe ... there's still time :). Thanks for your kind words. I did use National Instrument PXI chassis at work and they are great piece of hardware, but lacks a built-in bench PSU. This could be a replacement for more modest use.

    Thanks a lot. I'll try Indigo when I'm done with the design. Maybe I'll botter you for some tips :D.

    Edit : I made the front fins thicker, I think it looks better this way

    @Dark~3nergy : I had the possibilies : orange/black and orange white, the other combinations aren't acceptable ... Its a lot of black. With a little more illumination and more orange accents the whole case would look nicer.

    @GuilleAcoustic : We have no NI. We use IMC Soft&Hardware :) And yes the thicker ones are better.

    M-ATX is indeed SFF, IF you get the case right. Hell, I'm about to purchase a 12.5L m-atx case :p

    General consensus over at losias.net is that SFF is anything below 20L, OR an uber small case for a big system (like an e-atx mobo in a 25L case)

    Looking good guys :) Will update my entry some point soon
