Description

My son recently upgraded his build, but wanted to use his same case - the Elite 130. I love working in small cases, and wanted to show him what was possible. This is the result.

His usage is mostly gaming, but he uses it for writing and game development as well. Future upgrades are another 16GB of RAM, a new GPU (once prices settle down,) and an NVME drive.

Main challenges were managing to cram all the hardware into such a tight space, but still have it look good. The custom wiring was key to this, as I managed to shorten every cable by around 9 inches from their stock length.

I don't see the Nvme drive. Which one did you get?

Bro, look closer. It says future upgrade.

Prosesser is good, but the GPU isn't great, it's what let's down the system.

Agreed, just waiting for prices to settle down some before upgrading it.

Yeah, good idea
