Just saw this SFF case. Looks interesting. Can't buy it now, they're fulfilling their kickstarter orders. I like the size.

Now that's a legitimately small mITX case! Good competition for the NCASE M1, Silverstone RVZ02/ML08 and Fractal Design Node 202. Only other options that come to mind with even close volumes. Though I like the Dan case dimensions much more. Wonder what the fine people at Corsair and their ultra beefy mITX cases think of something like this.

The kickstarter campaign for the first production run was a couple of months ago. It didn't quite sell out but it was overfunded to the tune of 317%:

Neat looking case. I think the functionality will depend on how well/reliably the 3M PCIe extender cable works and how well components other than the CPU and video card can keep cool without any case fans.

I believe the rest of the production run will be sold through OcUK and CaseKing.de

The downside is no front audio ports and only one USB.

Extensions will work for me if these are the only downsides of SFF!
