DAN Cases A4-SFX V3
ready for full-size GPUs
The A4-SFX case is a one-man project with the goal of creating the smallest case possible while still using high-end standardized components, such as Core i7 processors and powerful full-length GPUs such as the GeForce GTX 1080.
The result is a unique product that is much smaller than all competing cases. This case is perfect for SFF (Small Form Factor) enthusiasts, those who need a highly portable system, developers who require a case with a smaller footprint due to limited desk space, and gamers who want a high-end PC experience in their living room.
The case was developed in cooperation with the community from the following forums:
What's new in v3?
With v3 we try to reduce our production time and lower the retail price. Therefor the v3 comes with a brand new riser made by Lian Li. The new riser cabel will support PCIe 16x Gen3.
- Lian Li PCIe 16x Gen3 riser (black PCB and cabes)
- Adjustments to the USB3.0 internal cable to be compatible with Asetek 92mm AIO
- Improvements to the power button to optimise the pressure point
- Adding mount points for HDPLEX 400W HiFi DC-ATX
- Mounting bracket for 120mm AIO
How It Works
This case uses what we refer to as a sandwich hardware layout. Using a PCIe extender allowes for the most prominent design feature of this case, which is the location of the GPU behind the motherboard. The A4-SFX comes with a high quality PCIe extender, made by Lian Li, which allows for PCIe Gen3 support.
The case allows for easy mounting of either SFX or SFX-L power supplies. The PSU is located in the front of the chassis.
Depending on the size of the PSU, up to two 2.5” HDDs or SSDs can be mounted in the drive bay. The drive bay is mounted with rubber spacers to reduce vibration and noise. A third 2.5" drive can be mounted behind the front cover.
GPUs without a protective backplate can safely be used in the case. A thin plastic film is installed to prevent electrical short with the aluminum chassis or the PSU.
With the new version of the A4-SFX you will be able to mount a 92mm fan or a 92mm All-In-One water cooling solution in place of the drive bay
