    Hey guys!

    I am currently working on an idea to start a brand which would be specialized in All in One PC Barebones.
    So I wanted to ask you if there is any interest for such a thing?
    In detail:

    The focus is on a configurable system, like a desktop case, but this one here has already a build in mITX mainboard, monitor, speakers and everything is already cabled.

    The power supply is external to save space and especially to keep the AIO as narrow as possible.
    The lid on the back can be pushed open after only 2 screws have been removed, so it is very easy to maintain.
    The technical data in a short overview:

    Monitor: 27 "Full-HD, AH-IPS, Frameless Design

    Mainboard:

    • mITX, modified with a 90 degree rotated PCIe slot for the graphics card
    • H110 chipset
    • 2x RAM slots DDR4-SODIMM
    • 1x mini PCIe slot
    • 1x MSata Slot
    • 1x 2.5 inch Sata connector
    Graphics card: Power over PCIe lane (NVIDIA GTX 1050TI, Radeon RX460, etc.), with additional PSU up to Zotac NVIDIA GTX 1080 Mini

    Power supply:
    External with 3 pin safety plug and 180W power, additional 250W PSU for Graphics cards with 6-8 pin Connector.

    Connections:
    • 2xUSB 3.0
    • RJ45 connector
    • 4xUSB 2.0
    • SD card reader
    • 1x HDMI-IN (for graphics card routing)
    • 1x HDMI OUT
    • 1x3.5mm stereo jack
    • 1x3.5mm microphone jack
    • Stereo speakers (believe it or not, they sound decent)
    Here are some Pics from my Testsample:

    I would really appreciate your feedback, thanks in advance!

    Looks very nice.

    FYI: I recall an electronic store chain here in Switzerland advertised something similar: a high performance AIO, but with an ultra wide screen!

    Yes i think i know what you mean, Origin PC for example sell them under the name: OMNI and now they are available here in Europe too.
    I think here they are sold as Hyrican Evolution, looks pretty sick, but unfortunately VERY expensive...
    I wanted to get one myself but with the configuration i wanted, it was at a price range of ~3000€.

    Any chance for a high res panel?

    It looks like there isn't much clearance around the graphics card. Would that be an issue with long/thick cards, even if we are limited to 75W ones?

    Is providing auxiliary PCIe power connection practical is such a setup, assuming cooling is not problem? If you can double the power, those cards will play demanding modern games at 1080p or even 1440p 60Hz comfortably, if not better.

    Jup i know, but then the whole Setup including the power supply needs to be changed because Graphics card with more power need a 6- or 8-pin power supply.
    They won't be able to run only on 75W PCIe, also these cards are mostly bigger and longer and would not fit in the case.
    As you can see on the pictures the room is limited, because the main focus was a slim and tidy setup.

    But if you know of any external power adapter which has also an 6- or 8 pin power connector, please let me know, that would allow users to take a mini 1060 or even an 1070 if there will be a small form factor card in the future. :)

    The room for the graphics card is max. 210mm~215mm in lenght and no more than 2 slot height.

    Cheers!

    I'm not aware of any external adapter with 3.3+5+12V (attaching your own connector should be trivial given the right output), but server PSUs are usually slim, and many of them are ATX-compatible from the shelf. They might fit into that kind of thickness. Or you can just wrap the cables and use the internal server PSU as an external one. (You might want to paint it black.) A less attractive solution would be using one dedicated PCIe PSU alone the primary PSU.

    I understand that your priority is forum factor. But limiting the width and height of the main "case" area seems to be pointless beside minor aesthetic difference. As long as it's no bigger than the panel the effective footprint is the same.
