Description

This case was pretty well a pain to build in compared to any other case I've ever used, but it's petite and perfect afterwards and went perfectly well with the computer desk I have. The CPU cooler was a little finicky trying to get in and I theorized a good number of ways to get it to fit properly until I got to what I did (along with being decently aesthetic). Only real issue I ran into was having to bend up the edge of the top of the case in order to fit the radiator and enough space to actually slide the top of the case on, but you can't really tell unless you're really looking for it.

The power supply I went with is definitely overboard for what this PC really needs, but I wanted to get a Platinum and there was a decent price locally for the one I got.

I replaced the front case fan with one with blue LED's and added the two rear fans to get some extra cooling in this tight space. By default it was louder, but significantly quieter after changing the settings in the BIOS.

I've been using this PC for everything from gaming, video editing, and producing and can say it is very clearly running all of them spectacularly.

I think the PSU you choose is fine. I currently have a 750watt power supply for build as well.

Better safe than sorry i always say.

Here's my build.

With a stock 7700k and 1060 OP could run on under 400w easy. I have a 450w SFX PSU running a 1070 and Xeon CPU.

Someone on R/SFF I think looked at power usage of a 1050 ti and lower wattage Intel CPU. I'm going to see if I can find it. I think they managed to get the netire system at like 160w or something and planned to go smaller with an external PSU.

I think you chose the wrong part or the GPU; that's the ROG STRIX GTX1060, not the DUAL.

As for the build itself, most cube ITX cases are a pain to work on, especially if you have big hands... I was considering the V1 but ended up getting the SG13. Yet still, this looks lovely.

Have my +1

This is not on the affordable side, and you have the wrong case in the part list...

will a Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 work for this build?
