The side panels on the G4 are secured using magnetic stripes. We would like to see these sit more recessed into the frame. This can be achieved by increasing the width of the external aluminium cover.
Enhance FlexATX power supplies can only be installed with the PSU intake vents facing inside of the front panel with no access to airflow. This makes the ENP-7660B unsuitable for use the GEEEK G4 without risking the power supply overheating.
Due to issue encountered with Flex ATX power supply, we mounted the HDPLEX GaN 250W instead. This can be done by drilling two holes into the case frame behind the front panel and secured with screws.
Cable management is on the more difficult side in the G4 when using standard length cables. This is especially true, if you plan on utilising both storage drive locations behind the motherboard and installing top + bottom case fans.
We would have preferred a more typical case layout for the GEEEK G4 with the power supply mounted under the motherboard. This would have allowed the motherboard tray to be further back and therfore larger CPU cooler compatibility. Cable management would have also been little better. Unfortunately, this would sacrifice 3.5″ drive and potentially case fan compatibility.
Despite some of the issues we encounted building in the GEEEK G4, it still would have been good little case and easy recommendation. Unfortunately the Flex ATX power supply suitability issue mentioned above is case breaker and why we used the HDPLEX instead.
