I can tell you SFFPC is one hell of a drug, like Elmo demonstrates it so nicely
I am in need of a project to do, and lately I have been finding my Dan A4 big for my taste (yes 9.7L is big now). So now I want a sub-5L built
It will be based around Lilac Cool outfit of Purple Heart to respect the goddess and continue the name of my PC. But more importantly it will allow me to go for a silver build as I am beginning to be feed up of how everything black on my setup feel. Still, the inside of the build will be all blacked out with RGB strips inside to be purple and maybe some light blue.
The components would be the following. I am planning to remove the shroud of the GPU and cool it down with the slim noctua fan.

I just need to figure out how I will go about the flex PSU and the case. That’s were I need you the guys and gals as right now I’m torn between 3-5 choices.
It is the case that started it all. It would be 3.7L, pretty much the smallest you can go without having an external power brick. At $79US, the price is good but will be difficult to get due to availability.
Second (and company) choice:
Metalfish S3, K39, and Loli1
Chinese versions of the Velka 3. In all case they are bigger, with 5.25 L, 3.9 L and 5.12 L respectively. However, they are readily available and a little bit cheaper at around $100CAD, including the riser. K39 would be the smaller but I would need to find a V1 (second picture) as I don’t like the ventilation slots of the V2 (and even then I’m less a fan of the look than the two others).
I’m in love with this one . It’s like if the Velka 3 had a baby with the Louqe Ghost S1. It’s gorgeous and appear to be solid built. Silver with a dark grey cover looks really good. It’s 4.58L. Also it’s fucking expensive at $235CAD , plus shipping and the agent so probably $300CAD or more. Ya I bought my Dan case for a lot of money also, but that much and bought directly from China is an hard sell a little bit. But it would be so perfect.
So ya I would need your comments and your recommendations about which case to choose.
This project gonna be a long one, so don’t expect this build to be finished soon.
