Really nice and compact idea.
Waiting for other photos.
Subscribed for awesome case!
Okay here comes some disassembled case pictures and some fan installation, again I didn't get much done today as I have to leave to brew some beer with friends.
From the other side
The front off
Almost completely apart
Threading the first fan
Threading the second fan
The 140 mm fan installed
The 230 mm fan installed
Again from another view
That's it for now, perhaps more this evening, but more Thursday for sure!
Those fans look sweet. Can't wait to see how they perform and look. Just curious, does that case not come with fans or how many?
It comes with 2 120 mm fans, but that doesn't cut it for me. These fans are much higher CFM for the same amount of noise, and they look much better IMO.
This is so cool.
How come you had to thread the fans?
Not familiar with that process...
They sure do. Thats odd it doesn't come with the front 230 fan or did it have a 120 there instead. I never really looked reviews or prod specs on it since its a small case i'm not into mitx/matx.
Its something I have always done, it makes using fan screws much easier, so your not striping fan screws and ending up with screws you can't take out.
I found it odd to but a quick trip to Performance PCS fixed the issue
The fans look great! Performance-pcs has done me well, though I hate paying tax
So far it's looking pretty beautiful, keep the pics coming
Was able to get some more work done today.
To begin some unboxing.
Still working on it, so more to follow after dinner.
Coming together nicely, looks pretty and clean!
It's going to be a bid beast in a little box
I just looked the board up for specs. That things loaded. I hope it performs well and lives up to your standards. I was just about to ask if you were gonna get some high speed ddr3 lol seeing that board supports up to 2400. But you should be good with the ones you chose.
Thing is coming along really sweet. Keep it up. Looking forward to benchies.
The sticks I chose are 16GB kit rated for 2133, should be plenty fast.
Almost 100% finished, but I got a lot done today!
So lets begin round 2.
Well that's not going to work.
Now that looks better.
All done for the night.
But wait 1 piece is missing.
Tune in for the next installment and the final piece of the puzzle!
Shoot I go to work for a day come home and found I missed all this goodness
That is going to be one beast in a biddy box when your finished [H] and looks like it's coming along fine ..... I gotta ask though why put that rad on the top would it not have fitted on the back
Had to say this.. superb build!.. u have picked same components I would, if I did an ITX gaming build - P8Z77-I + i7 3770K, h80, Seasonic X-series psu, Prodigy(albeit black)..
curious to know what GPU u will choose..
It just arrived today taking pictures right now.
Well then what are you doing posting? Finish taking pictures and upload them! Oh, and work on White Boy, too
EDIT: PS, that's the mini-itx board I want to get, let me know how she overclocks!
Okay and the mysterious video card is . .. . .. . .. .
A GTX 680 4GB Classified!
Bloody sweet choice! Lucky doggy!
That's going to be a sick little white box, blowing most other pcs away!
PS: I'm really excited to see this thing done and complete!!!
Okay so I have everything installed and updating!
SOOO some more installation pics, benchmarks and more to come in the morning and throughout the weekend.
This is at a farewell LAN with my friends, and I forgot my camera so the pictures are a little nicer.
Spot-on!.. i was guessing a blower fan type(back exhaust) GPU for this type of case.. u have chosen the best among them.. congrats!..
besides that card deserves more quality pics..
if you dont mind, could you detail (with pics) the filters used in the case(especially front & side).. I haven't got to see them clearly & i might consider buying this case in future..
also, the right side panel with USB & audio connections.. please detail your experience with them.. they might the tricky part of the case(besides the PSU routing) as far as i know..
I'd be happy to if you can wait til Sunday or Monday.
A quick preview before I get some OC action going.
