As SFF enthusiasts, we are well aware that going SFF means accepting some compromises.
However, I asked myself, does it have to be so many of them?
One thing led to another, and after few months of designing, and thinking out of the box (pun intended),
I'm proud to present the SFFtime P-ATX!
Want to put Threadripper in 9L case ? Now you can to that !
The main advantage is ATX motherboard support, which makes it the smallest ATX case in the market!
This allows for almost unlimited choice of motherboards and raises hardware compatibility to another new level.
So, you can choose board that has more features, more memory support, more storage ports, better VRM, better cooler clearance, older generation boards, or simply much cheaper board, since we all know that ITX boards and not the cheapest...
If you need to spend extra money for SFF case, and small PSU, at least you can save some money on motherboard.
One thing I would like to point is the AIO airflow pattern. It draws cool air from the left side, and exhausts heated air directly out of the case, and doesn’t bring it to the other components. That way it has an edge comparing to other cases that either draw warm air from the inside of the case, or exhaust warm air to the other components which is not ideal, especially in SFF case.
