To qualify as Ultra SFF (<7.0L) does the case have to be inside 7L based on internal volume or external measurements. Wondering if the community has reached consensus on this. Cheers.

I personally count every bit and bob that's sticking out. If it is needed to boot and run the PC, it counts to volume. That's why I also believe that power bricks should count to the volume. But that's just my view. We don't exactly have an ISO-standard for this. biggrin.gif

I agree,eternal rads count to volume as they are needed to boot.

If you didn't see it already, I've made kind of a hype thread for a new PSU that will be released, the FSP400-60FGGBA.

At 400W, it is a little less powerful than the Silverstone ST45SF-G, but it is also just 65% of its size. It shares features with the PSU in the Hadron Air and Hadron Hydro, but is shorter and narrower. In my eyes it looks like a great opportunity for us to rethink the way we plan and execute SFF and uSFF builds, especially when going for thin HTPCs.

For more information on the technical specifications and on how to get one, look at the thread:

An L1 for the uSFF club, 4.6L including 30W "brick"



Mobo: Asrock Q2900-ITX
RAM: G SKill SO-DIMM 2x4GB 1333
SSD: Samsung 128GB(actually swapped out from L2, package has a 256GB)
Wifi:Intel PCIE x1 slot card
PSU: Toshiba 30W 19V Brick + HD PLEX 150W(had it lying around way overkill)
Flash memory: Mfactors mini-PCIE to dual SD micro adapter
OS: Linux Mint
Case: Lone Industries L1

Decided to go with Centrino PCIE x1 card over mini pcie version as the card has antenna connectors built-in. May try out one of these for mini-pcie slot

http://www.mfactors.com/products/MR15-252d-Dual-Micro-SD-Cards-to-Mini-PCIe-adapter.html

Easiest, fastest boot up of a new OS I think I ever had, found wifi and all hardware without any help, typing this in from the new build which runs very snappy on Linux. Heatsink and brick barely warm to the touch.

So far idles at about 12.75W from the wall and highest I've seen is ~22W from the wall playing a DVD., brick consumes 12W alone, eerily silent.





EDIT: Got the mini-PCIE to dual SD micro adapter in, works great just need to get some 64GB SDs but pretty much this thing is built out as far as hardware options are concerned



Another EDIT: Got the 2x64GB Samsung EVOs on and put a USB bootable version of WIN10 preview ISO and successfully booted from that (contrary to what manufacturer says, probably more to do with your UEFI/BIOS capability) but Win10 setup would not select the other SD micro only SSD, may get cheap one to try interested to see how it handles that. Still have one SATA power and SATA-III connector left.

Thanks! Most of the EDA software I use at work is on Linux, there's stuff I could do when I work from home easier on this box with freely available tools. I could've done a dual boot with the L2 but I needed a bigger backup SSD, but I had everything but mobo, ram and network card for another build using my L1. Now that it's up and running I may actually use it more than the L2, really liking the Linux Mint version. Kind of strange but after using PCs for the last 35 years or so, having one that makes absolutely no noise is somewhat unsettling.
