Small Form Factor PCs: Great Computing Power That Comes in a Small Size

Are you looking for a powerful computer that combines top performance with a minimal form? Small form factor PCs (SFF PCs) are the perfect solution for anyone who needs a powerful computing device without sacrificing portability.

These computers have all the features and power of their larger counterparts, yet they come in sizes that can fit on many desktops. With high-performance graphic cards, robust cooling systems, and efficient processors, SFF PCs have become more than just miniature versions of your typical desktop; they can compete with the best gaming rigs available!

Defining “Small Form Factor”

The phrase “small form factor” can refer to different sizes—from mini towers to ultra-compact PCs. When measuring the internal layout and size of PC cases, we typically use volume (litres) as a unit of measurement. Generally speaking, an SFF PC is around 25 litres or less.

Advantages of Small Form Factor PCs

SFF PCs have several advantages over traditional desktop computers. For starters, their lightweight design makes moving from one location to another much easier.

Additionally, SFF PCs allow users to save space on their desktops, leaving more room for other equipment. Last but not least, these computers are incredibly powerful and can easily handle the most demanding tasks.

Choosing a Pre-Built Small Form Factor PC

When it comes to purchasing an Small Form Factor PC, there are two primary options: pre-built and custom-built. Pre-built models come with all the components already installed, so they can be powered up right out of the box. Here are some factors to consider when purchasing pre-built SFF PCs:

  • Price: Set a budget and stick to it.
  • Features: Not all SFF PCs are created equal, so make sure the model you choose has all the features you need.
  • Warranty: Many pre-built models come with a warranty, so read through it carefully and ensure it covers any potential issues.
  • Inside Tech: Here at Inside Tech, we have a selection of pre-built SFF PCs and components from leading brands. Our team can help you find a model that best fits your needs.

Custom-Built Small Form Factor PCs

Customising your own SFF PC requires more time and effort than buying one off the shelf but can often lead to better performance and higher efficiency.

When building your SFF PC, there are several factors to consider, including components such as processors, motherboards, RAM, power supplies, HDD/SSDs, fans and more. Additionally, you’ll need to think about cooling systems, cases and other accessories that will help maximise the performance of your PC.

Important Components of Small Form Factor PCs

SFF PCs come with various components, depending on the model. Here are some of the most common components included in SFF PCs:

  • Processors: Intel or AMD processors, such as Core i3, i5 or i7, provide exceptional performance and power efficiency.
  • Motherboards: The motherboard is one of the most important components in any PC. Look for one that offers features like USB 3.0 ports and HDMI output.
  • RAM: RAM allows your PC to run multiple applications simultaneously without slowing down; 4GB to 8GB should be enough for everyday tasks like web browsing and word processing.
  • Power Supplies: Look for reliable power supplies with adequate wattage ratings for your components.
  • HDD/SSDs: Solid-state drives provide faster boot times and quicker access to programs than traditional hard disk drives but cost more.
  • Fans: High-end cooling fans help keep your PC cool even under heavy usage.

Think Small without Compromising Efficiency

SFF PCs are great for anyone looking for powerful computers that won’t take up too much space. Whether you purchase a pre-built model or build one yourself, you can be sure that with an SFF PC, you’ll have all the computing power you need in a small package.

Shop Inside Tech for reliable and robust pre-built models or individual PC components.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Small Form Factor PC is a space-saving alternative to a tower desktop computer – taking up minimal space on your desk, allowing you to accommodate extra monitors and various other gaming accessories. 

They might be much smaller than standard-sized devices, but SFF PCs don’t sacrifice performance quality or functionality. As their components are miniature in comparison to those in standard models, they typically require less energy to operate, too.

These tiny gaming computers are also sleek and slender so will complement the aesthetic appeal of your gaming lounge or bedroom.
