Cases that'll fit a TFX Power Supply and mATX board?

Jay Deah

any idea of a nice modern case that'll take a TFX power Supply (with or without an adapter bracket to SFX/ATX) and mATX motherboard?

 

just thinking about what i could transplant a Lenovo OEM system into

How about the Inwin CE685 FH300TB3? Though it has a included TFX PSU already

though at this point i'd probably just buy a new PSU and case unless proprietary connectors

If you go to PCpp you can select a tfx PSU and then your case selection will be automatically filtered. Give it a shot 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

How many watts do I needATX 3.0 & PCIe 5.0 spec, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

thanks that does seem compatible, but its got the same aesthetics as the current OEM case so no reason to swap it. I was thinking something along the lines of a more traditional "gamer" look to appeal to the kids.

 

as for swapping to normal ATX, that's certainly possible, just adds additional cost.

You can run a mATX board in an ATX case if cost is a concern.

I enjoy buying junk and sinking more money than it's worth into it to make it less junk.

its the power supply i'd want to re-use as it has a TFX power supply with a 14pin mobo connector.

 

if i swap to an ATX power supply im looking at £50 for the PSU and £15 for the adapter. so thats £65 worth of stuff i don't actually need
