  1. We are not planning to go back to support of SFX-L since handling modular cables with those bigger PSUs was cumbersome in first version of Sentry. You can get 750W platinum grade SFX PSUs right now and it should be enough for what you can fit inside such case. As for TG-panels - we are not planning anything like that, sorry. From a quick glance on SSUPD - the thing is those panels are made from mass produced perforated sheets and while they are perfect for making flat panels with reasonable amount of non-perforated edge, we couldn't use the ones that are already there because
  2. There are 6.4mm tall round rubber feet included in the package. That was both for 1.1 and 2.0. As for pci-e 4.0 this not entirely up to us. I've talked about this a lot in Sentry 2.0 thread on sff, but one thing is that we don't want to state 4.0 compliance if the riser vendor doesn't want to and 4.0 support for risers has just started to develop. There were vendors that event went back and removed statement of compliance from product pages iirc, this was shown in HardwareCanucks video if I'm not mistaken. Our supplier didn't want to go for 4.0 compliance last time we asked them ar
  3. The Type-C connector is a complex issue. If you just want it for the connection to your phone and other accessories, why not use type-A to type-C cable. If you want it for the speed though, it gets complicated because you can have either single type-C connector or two type-A connectors or all of those with a hub but this will take additional space and cost more to manufacture. The issue right now is that type-C header is not standard for all boards right now like back in the day the 3.0 wasn't standard. We need to wait a bit for it to change. Right now you might want to pick a board from Gigab
  4. From my experience as ubuntu and debian user what's better in linux vs windows, not sure about mac though: 1) when you look for how to do something, you need an app to open file type, you want to customise something/set up your system - in windows you often need to download shady bloatware, at least that's what you'll find when looking for answer. With linux you often get a single command as an answer that will pull something from safe repository and pull it's all required dependencie. Of course complex stuff will require more lines copied and pasted, but you get open source stuff
  5. I have the same thermal issue with my 3700X, the turbo is pushing so max voltage almost all the time, +20 degrees over the R7 1700 - I get 60c on idle and 82c on light gaming on NH-L9i. Temporary mitigation is to disable Core Performance Boost which is turbo boost, but it makes it work with reasonable temps. And waiting for new agesa/new bios with fix for that, which is being worked on according to AMD_Robert on reddit.
  6. I did not know it's called having balls... Anyway that doesn't mean those were made/sold for free, and doesn't mean you can get exactly the same thing without a problem. Anyway, we have no idea what the layout of this case looks like because you did not show us a photo of the interior or even back of the case. You know what's inside, we don't. Show us a photo of the back if you don't want to tear it down. Cases looking like this were standard, but they had various different layouts. The looks were just the trend. As for the vents being similar - these are round holes. t
  7. The fact that someone was throwing away a case doesn't mean it was free to begin with, that's just random. Do you realise there's a huge difference in size/volume between this case and Sentry? Also I don't get the similarity apart from the fact that both can be used horizontally and vertically...
  8. I'm not really sure why are you so angry about this specific thing. Yes, we did not say it's going to be crowdfunded above the clock. The case was crowdfunded for first version, we were talking with others on the forums about crowdfunding and we told reviewers about campaign coming soon. There's a FAQ on our product page answering the question on whether it's going to be in retail stating it'll be crowdfunded as well. Bitwit mentioned it'll be crowdfunded as well etc etc. You could have literally ask us through mail or on the forums/reddit/twitter if Sentry 2.0 was going to be avai
  9. Linus (as every other reviewer who go the case) was informed that this is going to be crowdfunded, specifically that we're launching campaign soon. It was fairly obvious to anyone who's in tech industry that it's not going to be there right away. Also the price was told to everyone, it's just that bitwit being betwit converted it inaccurately to USD (230 EUR is pretty much 260 USD and not 250 USD as bitwit said). We sent the samples to reviewers specifically for the sake of you, potential clients, not being in the dark about the existence of the case. Between end of the previous ca
  10. Theoretically you might be able to fit 240 mm Tundra Slim in GPU compartment, but that would be mounted by the screws only on one side of the radiator where there's a slot for the 120 mm one. The question is whether you can bend the hoses to turn around and go under the hole under riser mount or not. Seems like it's doable but I haven't tested this physically to be honest, and it might have some issues with bending the tubes underneath the cover inlet.
  11. It's roughly what you can see in the gallery that Zombi posted earlier. The only differences being the 20 mm deepcool fan, two sticks of ram instead of one that is in the photos (i had it working for some time in another test machine) and that slim 80 mm fan put over the VRMs. AIO hoses were bent the same way as in the photo and that's the most important piece along the way cables are tucked in between the AIO and PSU.
  12. We have been stuck on trying to figure out whether we should try to support 52 mm AIO package (27 mm radiator with 25 mm fan) and how to do it for a bit. The problem with that is, we would have to move the center rail up above the radiator and fan while making sure the screws holding the riser and 2.5" hdd bracket will not go up as well, because that would limit 2.5" compatibility significantly. We have spent significant amount of time this year simplifying the center rail to make it easier to manufacture and lighter (as visible in the photo galleries) and modifying it to support 52
  13. It was supported in the first version, but from the 1000+ users just a fraction opted for those. Also that fraction had already problems with modular connectors location. SFX-L keep getting more wattage and to make that vendors push out the modular connectors more and more and even add some size to them. We don't want to support such non-standardised part. For the most users we've seen that corsair SF600 was their go-to choice even for a setup with 1080TI. Anyway that's a trade-off we have to do to support 120mm AIO/3.5" HDD configuration with ITX sized GPUs and we beli
  14. I don't think you need to go up to strix since that's the most expensive stuff, and you will not be able to use the potential to OC on that board in Sentry most likely, especially if you were to go with non-K CPU. Both of those board support dual M.2 which is nice
  15. We recommend going for non-K variant, that's for sure. Cryorig is a nice cooler, but it isn't really meant for it's 48mm size because it's really loud when facing inlet close. Check this out to hear for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzpO4kL7a9o C7 had also some issues with mounting mechanisms (too long screws, base interfering with capacitors on 115x boards etc.) when it launch, and I don't know if those were resolved. Noctua NH-L9i seems like standard approach for 65W TDP / non-K CPU. I also think you are slightly confusing i7-8700/
  16. I've spotted the model number on Aorus form, not a physical card on a video or photo. It means that there at least is/was a project to 'minify' 1080TI since this model number somehow got to the form.
  17. This card could feature that huge gigabyte fan that is attached to 1080 Mini in Aorus Gaming box for example while also being even taller than 1080 Mini. As for the RX (Vega) Nano, since Vega is already something in between 1070 and 1080, why would you want to compare it to downclocked 1080TI? Or why would you want to downclock 1080TI Mini if it were to be on par with Vega 64/1080?
  18. We're talking specifically about Gigabyte model which hopefully is an ITX sized card meaning it's ~170mm long as other Gigabyte Mini ITX models while Zotac has it's Mini Series slightly longer, roughly ~210mm long. Both vendors make those Mini cards slightly 'oversized' though - the PCB is taller then the reference models to accommodate required components.
  19. Yes, you're right, Zotac already has a 1080TI Mini, but that's not really an ITX format GPU, it's slightly longer, that's why Gigabyte's 1080TI Mini ITX (if exists/is planned) is newsworthy. As I answered VegetableStu about the 1080/1080TI model numbers confusion on the screenshot I provided: I hope that clears out the confusion. Hi
  20. If you mean from, then yeah, I am, you can check that in the threads I started
  21. Yes, that's the unit I have, and that's why it's selected in top of the drop-down menu, while the GV-N108TIX-11GD, possibly the 1080TI Mini ITX, is highlighted on the open drop-down menu list. You can confirm it's there on the list if you're not against registering on aorus website just to see that or you already have an account there. Actually it would be good if someone confirmed this before gigabyte catches up and takes it down :P.
  22. I have this gigabyte 1080 mini itx, that's why it's selected on the screenshot We're talking specifically about Gigabyte's 1080TI model here and VegetableStu is correct - so far Gigabyte has just started selling 1080 Mini ITX two months ago both as standalone unit and inside Aorus Gaming Box (thunderbolt E-GPU enclosure for laptops) although slightly modified to use huge fan in the latter version.
  23. I think I spotted Gigabyte 1080 TI Mini ITX on Aorus Destiny 2 bundle page. I was curious if my card is valid to redeem destiny 2 bundle from gigabyte and I spotted a model number that looks like 1080TI Mini ITX from Gigabyte, GV-N108TIX-11GD Yes, I know there's already 1080 TI 'Mini' from Zotac, but it's not ITX-sized, its ~210mm long! Full page screenshot https://i.imgur.com/iT9kbhe.png Link https://www.aorus.com/game_bundle.php?Page=84 (Login Required ;/) Google won't find anything for this model number, while every other card model number l
  24. The amount of screws required for the top cover is a pain, but without moulds for bending the cover and base it would be really hard to achieve required precision to match this type of cover to slide onto the base while screwing on the back. This is a restriction of small production such as ours. IT would be really nice though to overcome those limitations at some point. The screws for the quad drive brackets are making this whole mess actually and it looks like not that much people are using those. Sorry for that, I hope it wasn't too big of a problem to figure out what you need t
  25. We are processing the orders according to the plan with 150 cases in each shipment. Time between those shipments ideally would be something around a week, but as always there are external factors that could delay the process. If your order is one of the first B+W combos then your indiegogo order will be locked when we have both of your cases ready. What we did to keep the promise that cases are shipped according to your order numbers is fairly simple: for each shipment we were picking lowest order numbers matching the shipment (colour of the case) from the perk stacks to use up 150
