Description

Mini-ITX build - 14" x 7.5" x 14.8"

I wanted to build something different than my usual builds (no LED, air cooled). Mostly for fun as I will put it up for sale and sell it even if I take a small hit on it.

I'm very pleased with it and it performs extremely well in 1080p

Cable management took some time but came out alright.

FurMark stress test temps is 60c +/- 1c

clean build. What are the temperatures on that gpu? It is really close the bottom of the case and I wouldn't be surprised if it is thermal throttling.

I believe this case is well ventilated under the gpu, check it out the website and you will see the layout.

It's ventilated and has mounting holes for 2x120mm fans, however the clearance under the 2070 is just under an inch, and that's how thick my 120mm chromax fans are, so I don't know if it would fit, I'd have to try it.

I just ran Time Spy 1.0 and max GPU temp was 44c, which is extremely low so I don't know if it's just not enough time to heat up or if there is something else going on. https://imgur.com/cVsMPrv

It did idle at 36c overnight (I left it on) so at least that seems correct

Hot air rises, cold air falls. That GPU is getting the best air it can.

Thank you! Camera is a Canon 70D with a 70-200mm lens. Iit's an older camera but it does well for simple shoots like this (tripod, lights)

Really tempted to transfer my current rig to this from the evolve shift so I don't have personal space heater :/ Great build and photography +1

Do you have temp issues on that case? I actually wasn't familiar with it and just looked it up, it looks very cool!

I really really like this case. The only thing that was kind of a snag was that I wanted to mount 2x120mm fans on the side as exhaust , but my h115i pro blocks those spots. Currently there is only on 120mm fan as the exhaust which is really not optimal but my temps are fine.

Another weird thing was that apparently according to the manufacture of the case, if I have the RGB header connected to the Mobo I can't use the side button to change LED colors. I did and it went POP and let out some smoke... When I contacted them about it they told me I can't use the button if It's connected to the mobo. Strange design lol

You could use slim 120mm fans on the side if you wanted to. That's what I did on my build and it works great.

You have an amazing eye for those photos. Super clean and well done. Big fan over here!

What case fans did you use? I see one RGB rear, and two in the front. According to the site, the case comes with one default fan?

I replaced the stock rear fan with a cooler master LED 120mm fan, im going to use a noctua one though, the CM one is awful.. the 280mm rad has stock fans. broke my arm so i havent checked here in a while, sorry for the late reply

Looks pretty cool. Did you take the back plate off the gpu?

That's strange. My xc gaming came with a backplate. It's not the black gaming is it?

any Performance issues during gaming with the m.2?

  • 11 months ago

not at all. its not an nvme drive so performance is similar to a 2.5" , but still way faster than platter drives

I have the same ssd with a corsair h100i and a nzxt h200i. The MB has only one usb 2 port and its currently connected to the case fans. Any idea how to connect the h100i to the board via usb2?

[STAFF: Link shortener removed] https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817116035 nzxt makes a usb splitter for the internal connections. Are the fans connected via USB so the RGB can be controlled?

Is a RTX 2070 build in a form factor like this one able to play graphics intensive games at 4K resolution at 60 fps? How are gaming performance frame rates (fps) and fan noise at 1440p and 4K resolutions?

What size is your monitor? On the fence about transferring my rig to this case but worried it might be a bit big for an itx case. It’s either this case or the NZXT. I prefer this case because I like the none shroud and top psu mount.

Fantastic build! I'm starting a build in this case myself and I was wondering if you had room to put in the two side fans behind the 280 radiator?
