Description

This case originally housed a 6600k and 1080 FTW2. What you see now is the aftermath of eBay's promos and one desperate Craigslist seller getting rid of his 1080ti.

Building in this case is frustrating (much like any other ITX case) but I'm more than happy with the results. I tried using an NZXT X41, then a Cooler Master Masterliquid PRO 140, then an NZXT x42 before finally moving to the Eisbaer. None of the AIOs gave me lower operating temps like I wanted. After delidding, the CPU idles around 26C-30C and maxes around 62C after an hour of Prime95. Overclocking is yet to be done...

The GPU never gets over 70C when gaming, even with the side panel closed. I added the slim Silverstone fan at the bottom of the case to aid getting the GPU fresh air. The Silverstone brings air in while the front fan and PSU exhaust air. BTW, if anyone gets this case and finds this write-up.... SFX PSUs ARE THE WAY TO GO! Trying to work around an ATX PSU in this case would be a nightmare.

I've done 5 or so water cooling builds and always say I won't do another after the last. This is hands down the simplest loop I've ever done...LOL.

Thanks for checking it out!

This is a super cool build, but whats the purpose of having such a small compact case?

Portability without compromising parts or heat using a laptop. I use this for work Mon - Fri.

Have you heard any coil whine from the GPU or the PSU on idle and full load?
