Hi guys, I have few problems/questions which I hope someone here can help me with.



1) The light around the power button for my case doesn't work.
2) When I shutdown windows 8, the fan at the back are still running.
3) To start the HTPC I first have to hold power button for few seconds for the PC to shutdown properly, and then press it again to start windows 8.

Below is my configuration:

Origenae S10V using VF310

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus P8H77-V LE ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: Kingston Beast 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Plextor M5P Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Power Supply: XFX ProSeries 450W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply
Optical Drive: LG UH12NS29 Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer
Keyboard: Logitech K400 Wireless Slim Keyboard w/Touchpad
Speakers: Cyber Acoustics CA-3090 10W 2.1ch Speakers
Other: Origen S16V

I have installed iMON software which helped me configure my front screen.
I tried IR Trans software but can’t seem to install it properly

Most likely you didn't connect all cables properly. Did you check manual p. 13?
Did you connect molex connector to PSU?
Did you connect 24 pin cable with piggy tail to Y cable?

So it is NOT OFF. I am not sure what state did you put it in. Check your setup.

Correct.

Of course not. ITRans is for VFD210 not 310.
Did you read info in our tech support?

Do you want to put three mechanical 3.5" drives or do you consider one 2,5" drive?

Zygmunt,

I see that the S8 Chassis is either Sold Out (Black) or just about to be Sold Out (Silver).

Is OrigenAE discontinuing that chassis?

Newbie to all of this.

No. There is almost no interest in this chassis in the USA so I don't import it anymore. I am working with OrigenAE on some modification of S8. If concept is clear - I will publish info here.

I really love the OrigenAE line of products. I am very tempted to use an s16 case for my HTPC build. I have been in contact with the company to ask various details regarding the case, and I have gotten a prompt and curteous reply to each question regarding measurements and dimensions. I have been scouring the internet to find some answers regarding the size of the display. Due to some Mac specific software that my wife and I use in the medical field, I am interested in using a partition on my SSD (when I actually make the computer) to have the option to boot either OSx or Windows. I want the screen on the s16 to be able to work with Mac software, which the supplied screens don't do. I was thinking about getting an aftermarket screen that would be Mac and Windows compatible, and then retrofitting it into the case. Can anyone provide any advice on this? Has anyone done this? Any suggestions? I have seen Lilliput, Xenarc, Soundgraph FingerVU 700M and other companies offering various iterations of what I think I need. I have also found some very cheap options at buydisplay.com. Something about this seems less reputable. None of these companies offer an exact screen measurement equivalent to the display opening on the Orgien of 91.4mm x 152.9mm. Any and all advice or guidance would be appreciated. I am also a new computer/HTPC builder, so general advice is also welcome. Typically I stick to the audiophile Emotiva stuff. Maybe Emotiva will send me an old enclosure that I can retrofit :)Thanks.

Hi bwest1000.

I am little bit confused. Are you talking about S16V or S16T?
S16T has 7" VGA 800x480 monitor, so it must be compatible with any operating system. It is just VGA monitor.
S16V has fluorescent display like this one:


This one may not be compatible with MAC. More info on Soundgraph website.
If you go with S16T - you are all set. You have what you need.
You can also go with Wesena e7T. Wesena e7T has FingerVU 700 built in.
Difference between these two is that FingerVU 700 is USB monitor, not VGA, so you have to install driver and there is no picture until OS is on.
I tested it with WIN7, but not with MAC. Check Soundgraph it they have FingerVU 700 drivers for MAC.

Hello,

I'm am looking to put together a htpc using the S16t, but have some questions to make sure everything would fit... I would love to use an Asus Z97A, but noticed the CPU is quite far forward. Looking at the S16t/v diagram on the OrigenAE website, it puts the CPU very close to the ODD, if not even below it.

My first choice for a cooler would be the Noctua NH-U9B SE2, any idea if it it would fit and how much space it leaves for the ODD? (with only one fan; mounted with the wide side parallel to the back of the case)
Second choice would be the Noctua NH-L12, using only the bottom fan. It is only 66mm high, but how much space (vertically) is there between the mainboard and the ODD?
Silverston NT-01 pro might be an option, but it looks big.
The choice that I think would for sure fit is the 38mm high Nocuta NH-9Li, but I fear it would be the noisiest option.

I had a built before, also using the S16t, and it is a great case. Before, it had an Asus P6T6 WS Revolution, Noctua NH-U9B and Plextor PX-B920SA (a 19 cm deep drive!). It all fit, but it was extremely tight. I know there are other mainboards as alternative that move the CPU more forward (e.g. Asus Z97-C), but the Z97-A seems to have all things I want.

My guess is that it would fit, particularly as I've found that Asus has a bluray drive that is only 16.5 cm deep... So any thoughts?

Thanks!

Jörg

When you install Z97-A, NH-L12 (I prefer NH-L12 to NH-U9B SE2) and an ODD of 170mm deep, the cross section view looks like



1mm = 2 pixels in the figure. (The distance between the bottom of the ODD and the motherboard is ~45mm.) If you use angled SATA power/data cables, perhaps you will be all right. You even don't have to remove the top fan. No guarantee, though.

The information on where the CD drive sits is perfect! It will allow me to check how different components would fit (it sits lower than I thought it did).
Thanks!

First combination of the drawings seems to work... The CPU really sits that far back, it are the mountholes for the cooler that are throwing me off... The 17cm optical drive also throws me off: the previous one I put in the system was 19cm. The NH-L12 might indeed fit (though cables worry me). From the specs, it extends 62mm from the center of the CPU in the direction of the heatpipe (the side you put towards the optical drive). The U9B is 71mm deep and is symmetrical, so without fan it extends about 36mm, leaving even more space; perhaps the second fan might even fit! Or it might even fit rotated (95mm wide), but not sure if that would be better for airflow.
For the previous system I had, I got an NH-C12P which but it did not fit because of the optical drive. Not sure there is enough space with this combination, but worth a shot. I think it might be blocking cables too much though.

Still, I'm now quite confident it all should fit nicely, particularly the U9B, with enough space for an optical drive! I plan to get the system in August, and will report back how it all fits together.

Thanks!

Jörg

OK, the distance between the bottom of the ODD and the motherboard is a bit larger, ~50mm. You'd better go with memory modules without taller heat spreader, such as G.SKILL Ares.

Yes, I remember from my previous built that there is not that much space (and it is mentioned on the website). I wanted to know it as options for a cooler: basically, the NH-L12 cooler would NOT fit under it, the NH-L9i would fit without problem (so if all else fails, I can get that one).

When I get the system, I'll try the NH-C12P that I have lying around (I could not return it, it is unused as it did not fit before due to the deep ODD), but I think it will collide with cables (if it does not fit, I can keep it for another build :-)). For sure, I'll order a NH-U9B, as I am now quite sure it will fit if the ODD is not much longer than 17cm (I'd go for the Asus, which is 16.5 cm, just to be sure).

NH-C12P



NH-U9B SE2



The distance from the fan to ODD is ~15mm if the depth of ODD is 170mm.

Wow... great images (no idea where you got the Noctua ones)... But it looks much better (and more accurate) than what I could put together. Thanks!

I was in doubt if I would have to change my choice of mainboard to make it all fit comfortably, but now I see that it will be no problem. Of course, I'll report back.
Thanks!!
