Mostly off the shelf components for electronics. Semi-custom but available online for case components. Fan on top for extra cooling during high loads.
very interesting and unique build.
Thought this was a cheese grater at first glance. Pretty neat case
Great HTPC! +1
How are the CPU and GPU temps under load and on idle?
I am gathering numbers but under load it was uncomfortable to put my entire hand on for more than several seconds especially on the 1070 GPU side. No discomfort at all when idle or with the external 140mm fan sitting on top.
That's great! How about noise on idle and under load?
From arm’s length, very acceptable under idle. Acceptable under load thanks to the MSI and Noctua. The AC Inifinty external fan has 3 speed settings and are all acceptably quiet. I’ll have dB numbers later on.
Thank you for the info!
Best case in the World... it's a shame that a Skyreach 4 is so damn expensive. I could literaly build an entire budget Rig with the price of that case + power supplies needed.
I mean, you gotta consider that the Skyreach 4 Mini is not factory/mass produced, so the production cost is higher. If the Case was mass produced, it would probably not have the high quality standards it has, but it would be probably 50-60 dollars cheaper
this is why in my opnion it's the best case in the world
Yes, it’s definitely a huge investment for the case and associated hardware. I was looking for the smallest build possible that still allowed for performance components. After searching around, for me this had the best combination of style, substance, and compact size.
Damn, you basically made a custom game console. lol
Just also need an XBOX controller, a gaming/ergo chair, new desk, steering wheel, etc. It will never end. lol
Looks great, could you fit the fan under the gpu if you take the fan and shroud off of it? would probably cool a bit better then you would not the need the fan on the outside, either way its awesome.
Not sure, good question. However, there’s an included bracket with the case that can accept two standard 92mm fans or two 2.5” hdd.
Having stated that. With the graphics card in place. Does a 92mm fan literally fit in between still?? I haven't seen anyone utilize it much with a graphics card. I bought a spare bracket just incase because I'm worried for future temp issues with 1080 Ti.
It's a pint sized beauty, powerful too!... I'm pretty sure your whole build would fit inside my case!
There's a lot to be said for a well thought out small form factor rig.
Agree! The entire rig fits in a large backpack pretty easily.
Heya, cool build!
How much more space do you have left between the Noctua L9i and the case?
Would you be able to fit in this build a Shuriken BIG 2 rev B heatsink Fan?
Hey, thanks! It might be able to fit since there is room for another slim fan on top of the L9i. I would need to get one of the Shuriken to test out to know for sure.
Late tip or info, but if I remember looking, there isn't enough space and theres a recommended space that should be had in general with a case / cpu fan setup. Despite the fact that the case is a big open cheese grater with various airflow. Check out small form factor forums for more info within this case and fan setups.
Can you stuck a 1080ti in there?
A Zotac 1080 Ti Mini but extra cooling is recommended.
Does your ram run at the full 3200 MHz? or is it limited to 2666 MHz?
The fan on top is mounted, right? Not just loosely placed atop? Im 99% positive its mounted but i just wanted to be sure. If so, did you use the screws that came with the fan or did you have to order seperates? I ask because if its possible to mount a fan up there i would really like to, like a noctua or a be quiet! or something. Right now the only way ive discovered to get some additional fan ventilation is to mount a 12mm slim fan right above the GPU. This wouldn't be a problem for me but i've only discovered one that will fit and it's rated life span is rather short. Lovin the build, man, +1!
Fabulous build in just 4L - that Josh Sniffen guy sure knows how to build the ultimate small itx/htpc case for high performance vented cooling. +1
