Currently with case OEM 200mm fan, Kraken X41 and 140mm fan as push/pull intake. CPU OC'ed to 4.4GHz, GPU OC'ed with +100Hz clock and +200Hz memory.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great gaming CPU, no hyper threading necessary. Easily overclockable.

CPU Cooler

Love it. Keeps things cool, easy install. Instructions were lacking. BTW love CAM software.

Motherboard

Good ITX board. Great BIOS. Which there was another fan port and that it supported M.2 2280 not just 2260.

Video Card

Super fast, easy overclock. Performed bios update and thermal pad install due to "heat issues" talked about online. Not sure if it was necessary.

Case

Great looks, fits full size GPU and PSU.

Case Fan

Unbelievably quiet though not a ton of "oomph". Perfect exhaust fan but probably wouldn't put on a radiator.

Oh, good call. Love it! It's a Samsung 34" CF791. Fast, great color and with an immersive 1500R curve.

Awesome. This is my current build: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/b/NpGG3C I'm looking for a new monitor and this caught my eye. Would you recommend it?

Definitely. There has been some talk that freesync has issues but as I have nvidia haven't used it. Great monitor best for both gaming and productivity.

I love how compact but still very nicely organised and managed all the internals are. Great build mate! definitely gets my +1! How are the temps on load?

  • 34 months ago

Temps are good, a little higher with OC. On stress cpu in mid 50s and gpu in high 60s. Regular gaming use cpu in 40s.

The one thing I can't stop thinking about: Picture 1, what's that mouse MADE of? It looks like a pile of metal scraps. +1

Ha ya the R.A.T. mice are 'unique', metal frame with customizable plastic inserts to optimize comfort and fit.

Wait where did you stuff the HDD? Sweet build!

Sdd out in the open obviously but I packed the hdd below the radiator in front of the psu.

Could you include a pic of that pretty please? I want to do the same in my build. I wasn't worried about the SSD, they can be mounted pretty much anywhere. xD

I tried last night but you literally cant see it from any angle without taking about the machine. Basically though, because it's a 2.5" HDD, it fits anywhere, I just double sided taped to floor panel in front of PSU.

Oh! I thought it was a 3.5".... oh well, thanks loads man! Again, sweet build.

Sweet Build +1. Never occurred to me to put an exhaust fan on the side. Great idea.

ya I originally started with the dual 80mm at the rear but they were getting noisy even at low speed so I switched it up. Like the 120mm for sure.

Looks awesome, you were determined to use the 1070! The mobo/CPU combo looks like a good upgrade if I have the chance.

  • 33 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks, ya no need to toss a good card when the dremel fixes all. Definitely recommend the mobo/cpu for gaming (maybe cheaper now that z270 out).

I have the 1070 FTW too and I'm looking at buying this case for a smaller build, how did you install it?/would you recommend doing so?

  • 33 months ago

Nice. I definitely recommend the case and love the card. At first I just kinda shoved the card into place. It actually fits fine but plugging in the PSU is tricky. In the end I took a dremel tool to the frame to open up the space and it's perfect (see my pictures).

Lovely build! Looks like you stashed the HDD where my HUE+ is. Loving the white theme, and matching cables sleeves. The AIO makes this button of aesthetically, in my opinion. Great stuff!

Definitely, such a dream to build in! The push pull configuration with the radiator helped to hide my cable mess too! I wanted to try to fit a 240mm rad as I've seen it done before but it just wasn't practical
