Description

This is my travel build for LAN parties and if I have to go out of the country for an extended period of time.

The rear side has the cables stuffed in places that lessens the space for heat to dissipate. I might have to get custom length cables to make room. Might reapply the thermal paste too. Might also swap in a third party cooler like the Morpheus II or the Arctic Accelero III, partnered with the two slim Noctua fans I have. That'll be a project for next year though.

To improve on the GPU intake, I bought these plastic feet that I added under my case.

Weight: 20.6 LBS/ 9.34 KG

Did you manage to get your FTW3 to fit. I'm looking at this case with this GPU.

It wont fit unless you bend the lip on the case or cut out slot for the gpu to slide in I using a 1080 blower style card

What about temps? The build must have been hard, but it looks good!

Temps are at the bottom of the list of parts lol. I wouldn't call it hard. Just had to do a little bit more, and had to think outside the box especially with how I put the GPU into the mobo lol.

oh yeah my bad, it's been a while since I last used the website, and yeah you really had to think ouside the box... too small to think inside it!

Is 600w good enough for oc 8700k+1080ti?

  • 17 months ago

It should be. My rig without OC is sitting at 424W though I would just go with 650W or more to give you some more room to maneuver.

Mine is 1700x and 2080ti same 650w. Oc my ram at 3000hz and cpu at 3.9hz. Im not sure with my power draw. Am i going to be fine or will get problem sooner?

What OC do you have on the 8700K? I see you were able to fit a fan on the side panel together with the tower cooler? I have a similar case and went with the Cryorig M9i so cannot fit a fan there. Also see that you have a fan at the front of the case - what size is it and do you think it helps with air flow much? And can I ask where you got the plastic feet from?

I haven't done any OC on it due to the size and this was just designed to be a travel rig for the holidays and I'll be gone for a month lol. I can OC it later when I get home and give you back some temps tho lol.

The fan on the side is a slim 15mm thick fan. Barely fit in there. TBH I don't even know if it's helping lol but I had it lying around and figured why not lol.

As for the fan on the front of the case, again, I'm not sure as well if it's helping at all, but I had it lying around too so I figured I might as well slap it on there.

Plastic feet is from Amazon. Just click the part in the list and it'll give you a link to where I got it.

it may or may not be below the list

Temps aren't too bad considering how it was setup. Nice build though.

(For the people wondering about temps, look in the bottom of the description)

Does this case fit a CD player as advertised?

  • 16 months ago

Yeah it's got a slot for it though I don't use it. I'd recommend using a USB disc player instead tbh.

I actually have one for my own build; this is for my dad. He isn't too good with computers so I'm looking to simplify

How was installing the psu, was it difficult

Hi sorry I just saw this notification today. I don't really go here everyday lol.

PSU installation needed an ATX to SFX bracket, and I forgot that so I had to ghetto it for a few days (https://www.reddit.com/r/sffpc/comments/9v7lyp/i_forgot_to_buy_the_sfx_to_atx_psu_bracket_so_now/)

Otherwise, mounting the PSU was easy. You just have to pre route the cables cuz the cables ended up coming too close to the GPU.

Nice Build.. I am planning to do similar build, need suggestions on CPU Cooler, Do you think this NH-U9S is good enough for this processor?Have you considered any other options for cooler.

  • 9 months ago

Do you have any issues with the case fan on the side panel above your cpu cooler?

I thinking to do the same along a Cryorig m9i with 15mm slim silverstone fans. Would it work?
