It's been a while since I last build a pc, and since my current PC is way to big to take to my student appartment I want to build something smaller, preferably compact enough to fit in a backbag, so it's easy to move. So far I found only one case that fits my needs, namely the Fractal Design Node 202. I build the pc around it as follows; - i5 6500 - Asus B150I pro gaming (cheapest mini ITX board I found with wifi) - Corsair SF450 450w SFX PSU (seems to be the quietest in this formfactor) - Kingston HyperX 8gbb DDR4-2400 (1 module) - Scythe Big Shuriken 2 rev. B - Samsung 850 evo 500gb SSD All these parts should fit in the case, and without making to much noise. For the gpu I will use my gtx760, until the gtx1070 sells without the founders edition fee. I have read complaints about the gpu geting too hot, and there is room for 2 120mm fans above the fans of the gpu. Would it be more efficient to buy a 3th party gpu heatsink, two slots high in combination with the 2 120mm fans? That way I buy the cheapest 1070, and still totaling less then what custom boards would cost. Maybe just adding the 120mm fans to a proprietary solution yields even better results, I dont know. The Pc will be used with a 1080p monitor, I might switch to 1444p later, but my main concern is the noise and heat such a tightly packed powerhouse would generate. What dou guys think? This is an exciting project, please tell me if I overlooked something
Hi everyone! I'm planning on building a small, lightweight, portable lan box. Here is the list of components: Case: Lian-li pc-tu100b http://www.amazon.com/PC-TU100B-Black-Aluminum-Mini-ITX-Computer/dp/B00F2RRE1E MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z97N-Gaming 5 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128719 CPU: Intel Pentium G3258 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117374 Cooler: Corsair H60 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181030 GPU: Gigabyte GTX 960 mini-ITX http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Overclocked-GDDR5-Graphics-GV-N960IXOC-2GD/dp/B00SD9KZ96 RAM: 2 x 8GB HyperX Fury http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104461 Haven't yet settled for the storage and the PSU, but probably 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD (2.5'' laptop drive) and a modular corsair from CS or CX series. The biggest challenge will be to fit the H60 in there. The plan is to remove the 120mm intake fan from the front and place the H60 there, I know that I can also remove the dust filter from the front (since I won't need it anyway) to make some more room. Now, to be honest, after watching reviews and checking out some builds I really think that the H60 will really fit in there since it is really thin (probably a little thicker than the intake fan). I know I could get the noctua LH-L9i and it would fit perfectly in there but after checking out some temps in some benchmarks, I am feeling a little discouraged since I am planning to OC that G3258 to 4.5 - 4.7GHz. I am not worried about the 960 since it is a cool-running card with low power consumption anyway. Any opinions, ideas or suggestions would be highly apreciated!
Hello! My name is Johan Nyman, Im 21 years old and living in Sweden. I recently finished two mods, CURV3D and F4DE, one scratchbuild and one casemod. So now Im going to work on a older scratchbuild that I want to upgrade and also fix the small mistakes I did before. And I want to share this build at this forum! This time I will also add a custom watercooling loop and other goodies. Well lets start by some pictures of the parts of the case that I have to work with right now. It consists of the parts, the frontpanel, the sides and the backpanel. All together it creates a nice shaped case. As you see the acrylic is kind of rough, many scratches. So I will start working on that. The acrylic part didnt really fit perfect either as seen on this picture: So I measured out and cut 4-5mm so it fits better! I will install the motherboard on the right side of the acrylic, and because I dont want to show the backside of the motherboard through the acrylic I gave it some black paint! Im currently planning on what kind of hardware and other stuff I will use in this project. The next thing I will do is to cut out a hole in the backpanel for the powersupply and start working on a shroud over the bottom part of the case. Thank you for checking in! Please leave a comment.
