The Skyreach 4 MINI: Actually Mini-ITX
Cubes, towers, and micro-trays all have their places, but we believe that Mini-ITX should be about minimalism. The patented 5L S4 MINI has precisely enough room for exactly what you need, offering the right combination of component compatibility and tolerances to support a variety of enthusiast-grade builds within a compact frame.
Built for travel
The S4 MINI is engineered to move. With durable yet lightweight 1.5mm aluminum construction, the S4 MINI simultaneously protects your components and avoids excess weight. Meanwhile, a hardened anodization process helps to protect your Mini when in transit to your next LAN, Expo, or trip to the living room TV.
More computer than you think
The S4 MINI supports all the latest low voltage wonders the hardware market has to offer. Coolers up to 45mm in height are more than enough for 65w CPUs, and there is ample room for next-gen 215mm dual-slot GPUs. 4K gaming in a box the size of a ream of paper is now a reality.
The chassis interior is anodized jet-black as are the removable front bezel, SkyBracket and SkyBracket Duo expansion accessories. The silver exterior cover panels feature an elegant hairline brush and are hard-anodized and sealed. The entire chassis is constructed from utra-premium aluminum as quality is incredibly important to me. Specialized tooling allows for beautiful bends and folds worthy of the NFC brand. The result is a chassis that is as strong as the original S4, but 312g lighter!

Linus Tech Tips reviews the S4 MINI
NFC is building what appears to be by far the smallest case for custom gaming PC builders out there. The diminutive S4 MINI case pushes the definition of SFF cases to the absolute breaking point… To say I love it would be an understatement.

Notes from the bench
The chassis interior is anodized jet-black, as are the removable front bezel, and the SkyBracket and SkyBracket Duo expansion accessories.
