Got a couple of mini itx boards to play with might try this case. Yours looks like a box of snakes. I mean that in a good way! Really! (none poison types).
I think you have chosen one of the most elegant cases available at the moment and you have matched it with a quality build. Mini itx is a challenge but is worth it when you see the end product. I'm not a gamer I just like designing and building them, currently about to fit a micro atx in a small self build box. Good luck getting a 2080TI and probably some colour in the cooling fluid? Nice build!!
When binary computers are a thing of the past and quantum computing becomes the norm I can see you will be at the forefront. Nice build also.
Or could be a packet of Oreo’s. Nice build, I like the combination of black, white and silver.
I think this looks great and with all that room remaining I would put cable sleeve extensions in with combs looping them into those spaces. Good job.
We had a pug called Prudence! If we ever get another I would get a dog and call it Giggabit! Or Terrabit!....Yours looks like a Maximus! Or.....Simon?......by the way the computer build is awesome and taking a long time for the build is my idea of heaven. Walkies!!!!
Nice first build should be fine on performance. I go for the aesthetic also so more RGB not less, suggest some case LEDs. Enjoy!!
Good idea, might just do that.
My wife made a comment as she walked past the screen of completed builds, she said it's Eye Candy!! It does stand out in a crowed of PC's, good job.
Could have squeezed an exhaust fan on the back end maybe?. Used this case myself and you have taken full advantage of the available room producing a good looking as well as high functionality PC. Tis great!
Performance is important but the aesthetic is also and the rgb ram sticks add to the ambience. Get what you mean about cost to performance ratio and the 360mm cooler but anything smaller would not do, the space in the case is too big.
Was thinking of adding a liquid cooler (RGB) in the space at bottom and attach radiator to two top fans, blue liquid, not cooling anything but looking cool!!. My wife is now talking about new carpets, decorating etc..so will have to put upgrades on hold. Genuine upgrade planned for a year or two are:
LL120 rgb fans
M.2 boot drive.
I think the manufacturers tend to steer us to their own products. I also like rob when you can make it as subtle or as bright as you wish.
It’s one big heat sink! But not as heavy as it looks.
Decided to pull air in at top and side and one out at back. This should give a positive pressure to keep dust out and allow flow through. Also the back of the case is like a swiss cheese and full of holes so most of the air from the right three fans go across the top of GPU and out the back. Temperatures appear to be ok but would value any comments re air flow as this is my first build.
