First of all, this is fanless chassis. Front fins are radiator, part of CPU cooling system.
There are vents in the bottom and top to cool rest of items.
There will be feet in this chassis. We are building prototype. As soon as is ready I will get it here in the USA for testing.

This is coming from my experience building lots of mini-ITX systems. Otherwise, this'll be good only for Atom type systems.
Without fanless cooling - you are right.

I'd prefer a version that allows for a traditional CPU HSF and vent fan. Oh well.

What´s means in your shop page at ST6 chassis Ordered.  Arriving - TBD?

 

Maybe it will be ready for order soon?

 

Cheers.

It was no demand for e6V so they are not in production anymore. There is still OrigenAE S14V in stock, similar in size and with VFD310 build in.
You can see OrigenAE chassis here.

I ordered them, factory didn't build them on time, so I cancelled order. I ordered them again but it takes ~2.5 months before I have them.

I discussed it with factory. Nice aluminum chassis would cost ~$50.00. I don't think that there is a market for it in the USA. People will rather go with plastic for $10.00 instead for aluminum for $50.00

Agreed!

Why does everyone put IR windows in the lower corners? Many people place their various devices below the display, wouldn't it be more functional in an upper corner? Maybe on these small cases a few inches isn't going to make a big difference, and it might look awkward if placed near the top.

Hi Guys
What do you think about chassis for Thin-Mini-ITX motherboard?
I look at GA-H87TN. I can install mSATA HD (up to 1 TB), WI-FI/ Bluetooh module, enough memory, Haswell CPU, flat HSF and have nice streaming device or music server or HTPC in small package without wires at all. PSU is build in motherboard as well, so I have to add AC/DC converter to supply 19 or 12V and I have nice piece of equipment.

Waiting for your inputs
Regards

Do you want an optical disc drive? IR receiver? You can get a chassis that looks just like a set-top Blu-Ray/DVD player, or a tiny little NUC, or one designed to VESA mount behind a freestanding TV.

The Thin-Minis are chameleons. You can put them anywhere.

I prefer either no front USB or USB on the side like this:

b5e438f0_8y5dw9.jpeg

though with the USB ports oriented horizontal not vertically like this:



The cleaner the front the better IMHO.

I agree with you regarding USB ports, but you didn't answer which one you like better.
They will be no USB ports on the front panel.

Hi Guys

We designed and built a prototype of ultra slim chassis. After testing, it is ready for production.
Standard width - 435mm (17 1/8"), Depth only 310mm (12 3/16") and ONLY 40mm high (48mm with feet)!
How do you like it? Do you like it at all?

Accommodates Thin Mini ITX mobo, one 2.5" HDD, one slim ODD, two 3.5" HDDs one half size card (Tuner, SOtM tX-USBexp or something else.) There is a space for SOtM as well.
Production will start in July.

More pictures and information is here.

That is nice. It also looks like you've gotten rid of the eject button for the OOD?

Yes, but it is not final. It depends on people's opinion and demand.

If you do go for an eject button it should be possable to do a universal configuration that contacts both the dissapearing left side and the prevailing standard middle position. since it's a sheet metal spring the button could be halfway between with 2 nibs sticking up. I'm an EE that drives mechanical engineers crazy with unwanted suggestions. It is a very nice case that's a much lower cost alternative to the similar looking MMC-12 from Tranquil (which I believe is no longer available).

If we go with eject button it will be universal like in chassis we already built; FLS-4, FLS-7 FLS-8 and other.

Actualy I don't see this trend anymore. There are more slim ODDs with eject button on the left than middle right, in the USA recently. Europe may be different.

I'm interested in FLM-8 body. Do you have a list of compatible motherboards/CPU. particularly with Haswell i5?

Should I use Streacom FC8 list and posted builds? How different FLM-8 from FC-8?
