No, they will not be semi-fanless but will be quieter overall than ST45SF-G / SX600-G and their competitors.

Currently putting together a M350 build with a i3 and a Intel Q67 board (for the hardware level remote access functionality).

The problem I'm having is that the HD2500 is struggling with the bitrate of some of my content. As such, I'm thinking of going the next step up with a dGPU.

My question to the uSFF community is, what sort of case options do I have if I want to run with a pico (external brick) power supply and a pair of expansion slots?

edit: seems i have some leads to chase up in the OP - although they all seem to be a lot larger than i'd hoped haha

Are we talking 2 half height slots or full size slots? You can go up to a GTX 950 with half height.

Aldo, I assume the motherboard is regular ITX?

Edit: Looks like retail available cases with both 2 pcie slots and external PSU's are basically non-existent.

The only one is the Streacom DB4 which is both really expensive (480AUD) and not even small at 18L. Its really pretty and fanless though.

I think you'll need to look for something that accepts internal PSU's or just use your pico psu(not sure why you would) in a case that was designed to have an internal psu.

The only thing I know of is the NFC S4 Mini, but it's basically small production runs by a hobbyist rather than a product by a larger company, and is sold out at the moment. Last I saw, he wanted to do another small run, but won't be able to powdercoat this one, so it'd definitely be a bit of a DIY project to finish for anyone who gets one.

You could get a better cpu instead?
Be weary though ivy bridge wint work with Q67 only sandy. Not like P67 etc
HD3000 (i7 2600k and i5 2500k igpu) is around ati 5450 performance. Or you could go an amd apu?

Yeah that DB4 is quite large haha... I happen to have a few PSU options at my disposal (a Seasonic 460W Fanless unit, a Silverstone 500W SFX unit with the unfortunate ticking sound, and the 192W pico unit), but I really would like to keep on this passive PSU path. Unfortunately, they don't make passively-cooled SFX units yet redface.gif

I'll keep track of future S4 stock. It would be nice if the future S4 cases could come as sealed, raw aluminium. Powder-coating just ends up getting scratched up when you move it too much.

Yeah, I've decided to bail on the Q67 board for those reasons you mentioned - I mistakenly thought I could flash a bios to support Ivy, and HD2000/2500 just won't cut it for me. I've acquired a 4570T to slot into my VII Impact, and might try to build a system with that in the future. For now, I'll just keep it all in my SG13 I guess

The corsair SF600 will pretty much run passive on a low power system like the one you require.

The Lian Li PC-Q21 seems pretty good, 8.5L, SFX/SFX-L PSU's, good build quality and 2 full size PCIe slots. Its retail available and affordable.
