Updated HDPLEX H5.S Fanless Computer Case has been released

We’ve take the H5 platform and made a completely clean front panel for it to achieve that minimalist design we all crave. H5.S would make a perfect silent front end for XBMC, MS Home Server, or whatever you can think of. H5.S supports microATX and mini-ITX, internal mounting for 150W adapter and 80W power supply, and has 2×3.5″/2.5″ plus 1×2.5″ HDD bay.

This updated H5.S version has two major improvements comparing to the first batch H5.S. First, the side groove to bury heatpipe is raw aluminum instead of powder coat. This improve the heat transfer efficiency significantly.

Second, the new power plate supported both 5.5/2.5 single PIN DC plug and 4PIN mini DIN connector via adapter cable. This means all PicoPSU and silimlar DC-ATX solution are supported by HDPLEX H5 series. This enable customer use their own PicoPSU solution without the need to purchase PSU again.

Finally a small improvement for the heatsink installation kit. Four new smaller bottom holders will be included in the heatsink system.Some motherboards have small components around the back of the heatsink installation hole. The original bottom holder will need cutting/trimming to prevent it from damaging the small components. With new additional smaller bottom holder, you don’t have to worry about this anymore.

Motherboard Support List updated for HDPLEX Fanless H10 and H5 PC Case

MB not on this list should also be compatible if they meet requirement on the compatibility page. This list will be periodically updated base on user feedback. microATX standard spec is 9.6″x9.6″ but it also comes in small factor such as 9.6″x 8.3″ or 9.6″x7.6″. Small factor microATX mobo is recommended for better installation experience. It would allow more space for sata/power cable arrangement.

For H5 and H3 series, CPU with >65W TDP is NOT recommended. Due to the passive nature of the chassis, motherboard with high TDP chipset or onboard IGP such as Nvidia 9300/AMD 785G is not recommended. The HDPLEX fanless chassis is best for CPU with integrated GPU via 32nm or more advanced manufacturing process.
