Calyos NSG S0 Fanless PC Case

What projects have you backed on Kickstarter that we should know about?

by TJW » Fri Mar 31, 2017 7:14 pm

As for my setup I have an old Seasonic X-650 and EVGA 1060 SC 6GB which I probably use step-up and upgrade to either 1080 or 1080Ti.
I don't trust AMD yet so for CPU and MB I think I'll go with ASROCK Z270 Taichi and i7-7700K.

PSU. As someone mentioned in the comments, the Seasonic P-520 is prone to noise. Does anyone have a suggestion of replacement in the same area of price and quality?



There's another fanless PSU by NOFAN P-500A

https://www.quietpc.com/nofan-p-500a
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nofan-P-500A-Silent-Fanless-Supply/dp/B00S7E7Y6Y

which looks interesting, although looking at pictures it looks very cheap so not sure.

Thanks for the input guys. I will have to recheck my mb choice it seems. I don't need reset buttons on it and such but a nice quality and cooling is always good. And the looks are much better IMHO.

Psu: I jumped for the 550W Enermax Digifanless EDF550AWN after reading reviews. Thank you for the advise! First part ordered hehe

In terms of PSU, I am actually going to get one with a fan. The one in mind is the EVGA Supernova P2 650w. Now, before says something like "why would you put a fanned psu in a fanless pc", please consider this:
- This specific unit costs much less, but still remains fanless up untill ~500w (according to johhnyguru and kitguru). This is more than enough even for the most demanding single graphics card setup.
- it's actually really nice to have a fan just for the added safety. This is reflected in the 10 year manufacturer warrenty.
- it's one of the best performing units overall.
- even when the fan does spin, we're talking 31-34 db of noise - it's essentially quiet.

As I just mentioned in the comments : people start to make very specific wishes. While I understand that you can always try please keep in mind that any wish means a lot of work as well as potential delays. Small design things like no USB slots in the front for example. Srsly? Even worse, sorry, is people asking to close the case or have an aluminum cover. If you want a closed case with aluminum cover how about you safe yourself some money and get one of the 1000 cases already out there that fit the description?

Sorry for the rant. But I pledged for the Nsg s0 not a normal case and for sure not something different than presented in the campaign. If you want a custom solution, do it yourself. I'm all for improving the design in a technical and practical way - but not for changing it in general ! (if that makes sense)

@roix if someone owns 4 cats maybe he shouldn't buy that new shiny open aquarium? If you don't like the wind in your hair don't go out and buy a Cabriolet? :) I mean there will probably be a closed workstation in the future. If the open design isn't for someone , maybe the product isn't for them? That's what I don't get...

Je comprend votre point de vue, cela fait sens. Je suis curieux de voir ce que le rendu final apportera.

Je pense aussi qu'il faut laisser les gens s'exprimer, car même si cela ne peut se faire maintenant, sa peut toujours donné des pistes pour le futur.

Je compte bien le modder un petit peu, en super amateur et inexpérimentée :)

Would anyone be getting a Ryzen 4-6 core instead of the Intel equivalent?

I'm thinking about it cause I don't really need all that speed, but it seems like an ultimate waste to get such an expensive case that may just be built for the best overclock. Cheaping out on the electronics seems insane to me, but the case takes away the budget I have for better electronics.

You're joking right? We're about to make long term investment in 500 EUR computer case and shouln't care about its design?

The front panel is just a simple pieces of bent metal sheet. Why do you think high level HIFI components have almost zero front ports or hide them under a cover? Why HDPLEX H5 put IO port on the side - http://www.hd-plex.com/hdplex-h5-fanles ... -case.html? Guess what, I wrote them asking for a blank power button because I simply didn't like the engraved "H"and 5 days later I had it in mail no questions asked or stupid comments about my "specific wishes". If you are asking a premium price people will have high demands and expectations.

And yes I haven't used front IO ports in years - don't need them but I certainly respect that others do. That's why i asked for EXTRA OPTIONs I am even willing to pay extra for. So how about you improve your reading comprehension?

Jeez, Get off your high horse.

I´m thinking about the same one.
I made a (very) short list of of great PSU units I´m thinking about.

Enermax Digifanless EDF550AWN

+550 Watt fanless
+power management software is kinda cool
+Individualyy sleeved cables. Looks sweet

-Expensive, actually way to expensive compared to the other ones IMO.

XFX XTS Passive 520 Watt

+520 Fanless
+Good value
+Built on Seasonic fanless without the quirks of that unit (no buzzing reported)

-Doesn´t look as cool as the other ones, On the other hand you can´t really see the PSU in a NSG S0

+-Same price point as EVGA P2

EVGA SuperNOVA 650 P2

+ Highest rated power in this list
+Can do High power SLI/Crossfire, (This might not be possible on NSG S0, especially not without fans.)
+10 Year no hassle warranty

-Fan starts at 45 - 50 degrees Celsius (about 480 - 500 watt)

+- Same price point as XFX XTS

What do you guys think?
I ruled out the seasonic one that Calyos recommends due to quality issues. Many units seems to start to buzzing after 6 months or so.

All three of theese units are praised in reviews. Great ripple levels, Really good efficiency, fantastic builds and so on.

I ride whatever horse i want, as well as your are entitled to ride yours. seems though like your horse is just a little taller than mine ;)


I was wondering about m.2 vs normal SSD - we do have a designated space for 1 ssd, and we have storage places in those drawers to hide more - but what I actually was wondering about:

m.2 seem to generate a lot of heat (I dont own any m.2 so far, so I cant tell) - with the open case and no airflow from a fan - could this be a Problem in the NSG S0? Or wouldn't it make a difference wether one would use 1 or 2 m.2's or conventional SATA SSD's?
