    Hello! I just bought this case with the understanding from all the reviews that it was an upgraded Mini and came with the itx upgrade and the power splitter preinstalled, but i don't seem to have the latter anywhere in the box. Is this intended? I can't seem to find anywhere that sells the splitter seperately either

    no, it comes with the kit for an ITX motherboard and the media bay with the powerswitch.. The description says " If you only want to stay with one powerful ATX power supply, you can use the Phanteks Power Splitter to supply both motherboards." this is extra, and you wont find one because they arnt stocked anymore. You will need to use either an ATX PSU and a SFX PSU or buy a Phanteks Revolt X PSU which will power both systems, this is the setup i have. I used the PSU Splitter, and the cabling is a nightmare, its much easier with ATX and SFX PSU.

    Ah ok. Didn't consider the cabling aspect! I don't suppose you still have the splitter around, idle and collecting dust? :)

    Possibly, will try to remember to take a look when I get home, I think u will also need 2x sets of motherbaord, cpu, pcie extension leads as well..

    And thats £50 towards a sfx cpu.

    Yes good point. I shall ponder my options. I have a spare evga 1200w psu and a spare set of cables from a previous build so it might be ok (the whole reason i bought the case at all!)

    Hi mate,

    If you're covering the postage as well then that's fine, otherwise it needs to be in the MM.

    Thanks for checking as well :)

    Thank you Kurgen. Seems my email for this forum account was ancient and no longer exists. I have now updated. Can you send the trust email please?
