The HDPlex H1 is the best performing fanless heatsink-case mini pc, able to cool a wide variety of processors. The case measures only 8.8×11.3×2.7 inches (LxWxH). The H1 case is a heatsink that directs heat from the internal parts to the outside of the case through six heatpipes. It is compatible with Mini ITX and Thin Mini ITX motherboards and processors with TDPs of up to 65W. There is space for up to 3 2.5″ storage drives. Due to its size, it is not compatible with graphics cards or other PCIe x16 expansion cards, but may be compatible with a single slot PCIe x1 or x4 expansion card when equipped with a Gigabyte H170TN motherboard. The case has 2 USB 3.0 ports, a power on/off button, and a 4-pin molex power connector on its left side. It is compatible with external power supplies.
This configuration includes a Gigabyte H170TN motherboard, an Intel i7 processor, 16 GB of DDR3 RAM, 500 GB of NVMe solid state storage, 1 TB of SATA solid state storage, Windows 10 Home, a SOtM tX-USBexp audiophile USB card, and an HDPLEX 200 W linear power supply.
The SOtM tX-USBexp is a USB 3.0 card designed for a hi-end audio USB connection. It includes an external or internal power input, a USB port power switch, and a USB 3.0 port.
The HDPlex 200 W Linear Power Supply is a DC-DC power supply that produces a much cleaner signal than can be achieved with standard AC-DC power supplies. They are useful for audio computers due to their low ripple noise and no high frequency noises. Five power outputs are available to power a computer as well as other internal or external devices. The motherboard and any other internal devices such as Solid State Drives will be powered with separate cables for electrical isolation.
