Description

Got tired of lugging around everything in a CM Storm Scout 2. So I decided to make a portable PC. Only thing out of the ordinary is the window I made to show off the card. The reference nvidia coolers just look so nice. Cinnamon toast crunch for scale, and snacking.

so you're saying that a game with a story as decent as that wasn't developed by ubish*t therefore allowing it to infact reach over 24 fps??? Who developed that cereal???

Awesome! I love compact builds, I've always wanted to do a Mini ITX build.

I have this exact case, how did you make the window like that and what did you use? Fantastic case mods btw

If you look at my last build, you can see an easy way to get a window mod installed. Or you can check out this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpZoE-zj0-k

Thanks! How is the airflow though now? I'd imagine the GPU would get a little bit hotter now right?

It really depends on your other airflow sources. For example, you can mount a 120mm fan on the bottom of the case, sucking air in towards the GPU and that would compensate for not having side vents.

I can't say that mine can do that, or is it another case mod?

  • 52 months ago

What case is it? Basically, if you want to keep the temps low, you'll need to find another way to supply air to the GPU fan.

Really sexy and clean. Nice custom window. Is that a enermax tb apolish in front? The fan looks so freaking sick

How is the temp inside the case? With the side vents removed for the window.

High. You can see the temps to the right of the build, under Details. The window mod looks sweet but, as you said, it cuts off circulation from the GPU fan.

Great design and part placement. The window for your reference card was a nice touch! All you need to do is attach a handle to it.

Lovely! I've never seen such a well-lit and well-showcased Elite 130!

Everything is where it needs to be. That is, I'm a bit skeptical about that SSD. How did you even get a hold of the V200? Isn't it an OEM exclusive part?

I absolutely adore the window. +1

bit of info: I bought a V200 about a month ago or so, 50$CAD for 128gb on sale from www.nmicrovip.ca V200 is not oem only, it's older model from the V series. I don't know the roadmap from Kingston but I would say the V300 will be replaced soon by something else, it's been around for a while now.

The fury ssd's from kingston are the replacements and those came out earlier this year :D

Nice work! Those temps though...

yeah temps are high; I figure it's the price to pay for all that performance in a tiny box.

Well, he cut off a lot of the air circulation with that window mod. It looks pretty, but there is no air feeding the GPU fan.

  • 52 months ago

same thought about the window vs air vs gpu

  • 52 months ago

yes I know the temps are a bit high and I am planning on cutting vent holes near the front of the window where the GPU draws air. Once I decide on a pattern I like. I did have my GPU fans set to quieter operation but after a bit of tweaking I have it sitting at 69c at full load.

How much clearance do you have between the window and the GPU? If you can fit a fan, that could actually look cool. OR you could maybe still fit a grill like this to keep a pretty slick look.

We want more pics from the inside! ...And the free car of course.

This is really well done! Love the case mod. You should add the cinnamon toast crunch to the parts list xD

I have a 340Cereal GPU with a Milky Delight at 5 Cheerios by Crunchtel.

I mean yours is good too but like mine is just..

Does the window suffocate the GPU, or does it still get sufficient airflow?

Is it ok to have a third party cpu cooler instead of liquid cooling?

How did you assemble that window? Your build is pretty much what I had in mind.

Simple cut out with a dremel and plexi glass from amazon. Simple epoxy to hold it.
