The RSI H Series SD100 is a Small Form Factor case based on a Mini-ITX form factor. This case has a Piano Mirror coating that looks like it came off a Baby Grand piano with a shiny black exterior. The SD100 is fully compliant with the Intel Fly Creek and Eklo Mini-ITX thermal design meaning it will be able to use those motherboards without issue.

One compromise with the small size is the lack of support for the full size 5.25” Optical drive. The SD100 supports slimline DVDs only. Another compromise is the built-in 120W Flex ATX Power Supply Unit. You won’t be able to use a high TDP CPU in this machine, but that is not the target market. The size of the unit is 12.5x 10.6x 2.8 (HxWxD).
