Description

The clever cooling design of the case is similarly spartan in outlook. A separate fan is not needed as the case takes advantage of the integrated cooling of the installed hardware, thus saving valuable space here as well. To ensure that all components are exposed to fresh air the two side panels and the top of the A4-SFX V4.1 have been provided with round air holes over a large surface area along with elongated holes on the bottom to ensure a continuous supply of fresh air. They folded the rinser cable like so that you cannot fit a 14mm case fan under it. According to the specs the case even holds a 15mm fan. Folding a super expensive rinser cable is no fun. My Dan A4 H2O can still handle high end hardware (not the i9 without an undervolt/power limits :D ), and a big GPU is still going to perform better here than a small one. The sides and top panels are perforated, there's holes everywhere...but there's literally a single RTX 4090 SKU that will fit (the ventus). The FE are a no go because the flow through design could only work with a 4-slots design layout. (There's an offset system for the Two slot FE) Daniel put considerable thought into the installation process, which means that unlike most other mini-cases, installing components is straightforward and simple. Without trying to patronise, silicon temperature isn't related to how much heat is dumped into your case by the CPU, it's the power draw in Watts. A 15W CPU can run at 95C and a a 230W CPU can run at 60C and yet the hotter 15W chip will result in far, far lower case temperatures because it's only the Watts that are transferred out of the heatsink. If anything, a CPU operating at much higher temperatures is able to extract greater efficiency from the cooler because the larger temperature delta between the air and the heatsink results in a faster energy transfer from hot metal to cool air. In other words, more energy is extracted by the cooler for the same amount of fan RPM and noise.

AusWolfThat's the thing. The air dumped into your case should move, otherwise, it's just gonna be recycled by your CPU cooler, which affects silicon temperature as well. Sure, it won't kill itself, but throttling can be an issue.Yes and no. Define "throttling" :DWithout trying to patronise, silicon temperature isn't related to how much heat is dumped into your case by the CPU, it's the power draw in Watts.

My point is that with less surface area, you need a more capable cooler with more airflow to keep your silicon temperature low. All images and descriptions are for illustrative purposes only.

Although we endeavor to present the most precise and comprehensive information at the time of publication, a small number of items may contain typography or photography errors Really the best small form factor case money can buy. Whilst expensive the Dan Case proves you do not to spend 300 for a ghost s1 or similar. My case was constructed to a very high standard with no sharp edges, everything aligned perfectly and it was a dream to build in. Worth mentioning the case itself is relatively light which means transporting my final build has been a breeze. Well worth it. Now you must search form the DIN/EN norms that tell you how to test your product so that it fulfill the guidelines. So for a case that should fulfill 2014/35/EU and 2011/65/EU the norms are:

The front USB type C port delivers power on my ASUS ROG Strix B550-I with its USB 3.2 Gen 1 connector, but does not transfer data at all. My Oculus Quest 2 stays dead. But I can charge my phone. Great. Depending on the size of the PSU, up to two 2.5” HDDs or SSDs can be mounted in the drive bay. This drive bay could potentially be mounted with rubber spacers to reduce vibration. A third drive can be mounted behind the front cover.

This case is still unique and awesome many years after the first revision. It's a work of art and design. Great quality too. Made me a LL fan as well.

The all-aluminium body will be manufactured again by Lian Li in Taiwan per their highest quality standards. A commitment to quality lies at the core of our business philosophy.

Customer reviews

A number of creative ideas were needed to create the case. Using a PCIe extender allowed for the most prominent design feature of this case, which is the location of the GPU behind the motherboard. The A4-SFX will come with the highest quality PCIe extender on the market, made by 3M, which allows for PCIe Gen3 and Gen4 support. TheDAN A4-SFX V3was designed by Daniel Hansen, his vision was to create the smallest possible gaming PC case, without compromising on performance or looks. The result is theDAN A4-SFX V3, an ultra small form factor casewith a sleek. minimalist design. While Real Temp offers excellent and repeatable temperature results, we employ a REED Instruments SD-947 Data Logging Thermometer with four K-Type sensors that have been placed as closely as possible to the benchmarked areas of the CPU, GPU, M.2 SSD, and motherboard chipset. A fifth sensor is used to monitor the room temperature for an accurate delta T result. If there is one small form factor (SFF) case that has defined the growth in popularity of the SFF movement, it has to be the Dancase A4-SFX. This mini-ITX case has shown it is possible to build highly capable, enthusiast-grade machines that not only are super compact, but also look drop-dead gorgeous. Rightly so, it has been featured as one of our best SFF cases to build with in 2019. The temperature isn't really an issue; Both Zen3 and Zen4 have silicon health agents which (outside of faulty Asus BIOSes of late) will keep the silicon at healthy long-term temperatures. They're going to run hot, yes, but still within limits and the actual amount of heat dumped into your tiny mITX case is never more than the PPT, regardless of the temperature.

We believe SFF computers are the future for PC builders – whether you like it or not – and expect to see more and more PC builders turn to the mini-ITX form factor from ATX and look to build smaller, compact systems with equal performance to ATX systems. You should be worried about the heat dumped into the case if you're running a tiny cramped mITX shoebox with restricted case airflow. That heat gets absorbed by every other component in your PC and is directly related to how noisy your case fans will need to be. mITX builds are most often vanity builds that sit right up on the desk next to the user, so noise levels are even more critical than in an ATX desktop where it's further from the user and more of the noise is bouncing around and being absorbed under the desk. The new V3 edition features quality Lian-Li components including a new PCIE 3.0 riser module,optional AIO mount for CPU water-cooling support with both a 92mm and 120mm radiator configuration plus mounting points for theHDPLEX 400W HiFi DC-ATX. In a reversed setup, where the AIO moves to the GPU side next to a conventional SFX form factor power supply. This reduces the length of the graphics card to 173 mm and the height of the AIO including fan to 42mm. Those who can do without two SSDs have room for 92mm AIOs on the ground, such as the 545LC from Asetek. To effectively protect all vents from dust, DEMCiflex provides optional DAN Cases A4-SFX Dust Filters.The next step is to do the test that is described in the norms. You have to do only the test that is necessary. You need special test equipment to do some of the test: For example let fall a standardized iron ball on you case or do a fire test and so on. I think it is impossible to do the test by your own if you aren’t a larger company, but there are accredit companies in every country that can help you to do the test. In Germany for example TÜV Süd, Tüv Rheinland. It will cost between 2000-5000€ that they will do the tests for you. At this point, if you really want a tiny PC, it's a boatload easier to just accept that the flagship/halo CPUs and GPUs aren't aimed at mITX any more.
