Ultra-portable LAN box

Recommended Posts

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! :thx:

If you can wait the R9 Nano looks pretty awesome for SFF builds.

Saw a dude pack an ITX build into a 50 cal ammo can. Gonna try that some day when money permits.  :wub:

Well, yes Waco, I can wait for the R9 Nano but at its current rumoured price point its about half as much as my current setup and that is too much for me, and VIcVic, thank you kindly for your offer but 2 GPUs wouldn't fit in that case anyway.
