I used to have the NZXT S340. As much as I loved the thing, I felt like I needed to have a smaller computer for the coming school year, since I'll be getting a roommate soon.

The reason it's called TheToaster is not because it gets hot (stays at around 70 C max in the summer actually), but because I usually name my computers by my gaming alias. My gaming alias used to be "PrismSeven" a few months ago, but I found that boring so I changed most of my usernames to "QuantumToaster". I much prefer the name... It fits me and my humor better than PrismSeven...

A few parts came from my old battlestation, just the CPU and the SSD. But really, this build was a challenge since it had been a little while since I had built a PC. Mostly also because it was much smaller than my S340 and much more difficult to cable management with. But overall, the case was easy to use and set up, and I'm so glad it doesn't choke my 1070. Not many pictures, but what you see is what is important. The final build works like a champ and I can't wait to play new games like No Man's Sky or The Witcher 3 GOTY when they both come out.

Part Reviews


Good small case that fits full sized components. I just wished there was a little more room for cable management, but I understand why it was less roomy (to make it small of course). This definitely takes the cake for making a console-esk sized computer.

How's the noise on that FE 1070? And how's the temps in that case?

I was going to make a build in one of the Silverstone HTPC cases but I figured that the GPU would get really noisey. Even with a FE blower style card, I'd assume it reaches low 80's?
