    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.

    Luxury finishing

    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!

    Hardware Support

    Motherboards Mini-ITX
    CPU Coolers Height restriction: 45mm (with side bracket in place and no fan mounted)
    Graphics Dual-slot cards up to 215mm in length are supported
    Storage 2 x 2.5" mounts
    Power Supply DC-DC and Nano AC-DC power solutions are supported. Most computer cases are designed for AC-DC PSUs. DC-DC PSUs, comparatively, are typically found in laptops. This simply means you need a power brick, and a DC-DC converter. While there are many options available, I have two examples I highly recommend: The 160W is IDEAL for lower wattage builds that still pack a punch; 65W CPUs paired with a GTX 1060 are a good example. If you are intending to install in a more powerful GPU and/or 90w CPU, however, then you should consider the HDPLEX 400.

    Example Configuration

    CPU Intel Core i7-7700
    GPU GeForce GTX 1060 Mini 6GB
    Motherboard ASUS Z270i STRIX
    RAM G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB DDR4
    Storage Samsung 960 EVO M.2 512GB
    CPU Cooler Noctua NH L9i
    PSU HDPLEX 400w DC-DC PSU and DA330PM111

    Tek Everything reviews the S4 MINI for SFF Network

    The S4 MINI represents something truly unique. It straddles the line between size and power more successfully than any case I have ever seen. The build quality is second to none, as is the design. If you’re looking for a unique and functional mITX case, and you’re a fan of the industrial design the S4 MINI champions, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better one than this.

    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.
