Description

Hey guys, After looking at so many awesome builds here, i just want to play my part and share my build. This is my daily driver, mainly use it for gaming. A lot of the inspiration for this build came from pcpartpicker and Metallicacid's nano machine build. Have always been a big fan of SFF builds and hope to contribute to the community.

Custom works The sleeved cables are done with mdpc-x sleeves, took me a good some time to get the length worked out. I'm a little disappointed with the ATX 24 pins sleeved as they came out a bit too short. I painted the plastic top on the cryorig m9i. Wanted it to go with the color theme of the system.

Additional The cable combs and clear side panel are purchase from mnpctech. They are awesome, especially the combs. Very solid and looks kick ***.

Please feel free to leave me some feedback. Cheers!

Thanks! Yup, I forgot to mention that I did not want to go overboard with led hence the ring fans. Adds just the right touch.

Very clean and good looking build. I am hoping to set up my nano s in a similar fashion also that acrylic side panel makes it just that much better.

Thanks hyperhawke! The side panels are form mnpctech and i recommend getting it from them. However, the acrylic they provided was relatively prom to scratches. Get the mnpc for it's mounting and you can DIY your own panel. (relatively simple, just need four holes for the screws)

I'm thinking about getting the panel to get the mounting and then seeing if I can get a tempered glass panel custom made!

At least those cables are properly managed for having dual windowed panels +1

How did you go about mounting the SFX-L PSU in this? Did you choose that for improved airflow?

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

The PSU comes with a bracket to mount the PSU onto the case. Yup, i felt an atx PSU will be too close to the GPU for my comfort and wanted a bit more space in between. Secondly reason for going with this PSU was that the pin layout is much simpler.

do you know if the original psu wires were long enough for the build? Thanks and nice build.

Thanks DjiboTech. Regarding the cables, everything except the CPU 8pins will have no issues.

  • 27 months ago

hi, not sure i'm understanding this correctly -- are you saying that you had to buy an extender for the cpu 8-pin connector?

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

If you use the original cables that comes with the sliverstone SX500-LG, the 8 pin pcie cable is too short hence you'll need to either get extension or make your own cables?

Hows the noise?

Great. Don't really hear it even while gaming. It is placed on the desk right beside me.

Having just bought this case I'm sad to see my 24pin and 4+4pin cables are on the short side, but I'm also happy to have a reason to buy custom cables. Would you be able to point me in the right direction as to what cables to get and the lengths?

  • 22 months ago

Hey there. So sorry to hear that. I sleeved my own cables so i cant help you with that. I used mdpc-x sleeves and length is individully measured.

Moment I saw this I was amazed at how clean it was... The case seems really well lit. I like that it's not too bright that it overwhelms the case with light, but how does it look in the dark? Does the Thermaltake Riing fans provide enough light?

  • 22 months ago

It fairs pretty well in the dark. The light is not evenly lit but it gets the job done. Thanks for all the kind words.

How are the temps with the GPU?

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

Temperature on the GPU is good. While gaming it stays around 70-74 degree celsius at an ambient of 28-32 degree celsius.

I have been searching for good cable lengths to cut my cables for this case. How long did you end up making the 24 pin, cpu, and graphics? I am trying to get a feel before starting anything. Thank you!

Hey skipnut97, I can't seem to find the excel files that has the length. Will post them up once i find them. In any case, the 24 pins were a bit short to my liking hence i will suggest you to increase the length by another 2-3cm.

Hey WeiZhong I'm looking into custom cables with the same case and SF450 SFX PSU. Do you mind guiding me on the appropriate cable length?

  • 27 months ago

Hey boomin23, i am using the sliverstone sx500-lg. I can give you the measurements but it might not work in your case as the PSU is different.

U can always swap the ssd for a 1tb of flash storage to save money and more internal storage for games. It is more logical to do what you are doing but you can wate few more seconds for to save hundreds of money to even upgrade the computer in different parts. You can dullboot ssd boot up and everything else on the internal drive. U are are doing a budget not a expensive so GET RIDE OF THE SSD.

WeiZhong, I believe this one of the nicest builds I’ve seen in a while. To get Bill Owen’s approval is saying something! I won a Fractal Design Focus G (Blue) from his website about a month ago it’s finished and I will be posting it here. IMHO I believe it’s a nice build but will let the rest of you decide! I don’t want to blow my own horn ( yes I’m an old fart 62 this April) but I love anything TECH I have 2 custom hard tube builds under my belt and at least 10 others. Again GREAT JOB MY MAN. Later Steve

Hey Steve, Thanks for the compliments. FYI, still waiting for you to upload your build! Can't wait to see them! Cheers.

you could have gotten a 1080 for the price you spent on the 1070 you know...
