Description

With this being my first Gaming PC build ever (other then repairing basic pc's over the years) I might have taken on more then I was ready for, but I think I pulled it off in the end...for the most part.

Wanted to create a console replacement that was strong enough to pull off 60 fps on high settings on my living room 4K TV. Yet small enough to fit in my entertainment center.

With that said, I slammed as much high end components I could in this mini ITX.

I also tried to throw as many fans as I could in the case with 2 push fans at the top, 1 pull fan out the back, and 2 pull fans out the front through the Kraken's radiator. The good news with this is I was able to get the thermals I wanted in the case with max temps reaching only 79 degrees while OC'ed.

The only thing I hate is I couldn't get the Asus Sync to control the colors I wanted from the mobo because I had to connect all the fans through the fan hub in the case, and not directly to the RGB port in the case like I planned on. Granted the 3 RGB fans did come with a controller, but there was only 1 internal USB connect in this mini ITX board, and I needed it for the water cooler pump. But oh well they still light up and look good.

Other then that everything came together. I will eventually update the case with some custom sleeves, but im happy with this Game of Thrones themed Targaryen Fire and Blood build.

I think the Targaryen dragon decal on the front was the finishing touch.

Update Nov. 05, 2018 I finally added the customer sleeves from MAINFrame Customs, replaced the AIO (due to the RGB not working on the old one) and placed a POP Daenerys figure in the case for fun...I think im really done now.

can you take a picture of the gpu? i wanna know if the gpu is resting on the shroud or does it gave some space to breath in

Funny you ask that. I'll take a picture, but there is one thing I forgot to mention. Although there was like a centimeter of space when i finished the build I did notice after allowing the components to settle in, I heard a fan tapping something when i powered it up. Turned out the gpu fan was tapping the bottom of the case. I ending up having to prop a old small usb drive under the end of the video card to fix it. but yeah there was some video card sag ;(

i see thanks for the reply :D also thinking of buying the msi gtx 1080 ti gaming x, but the problem i was wondering is if the gpu is tight does it affects the perfomance right? i have a h200 case from nzxt and a gtx 1050 gonna upgrade soon to rtx though the rtx series card were all 2.5 slot so that would be a problem, if not i might get a 2 slot 1080 ti

No prob. but yeah the MSI 1080 ti is very beefy and will likely take up the same amount of lower gpu space as my manta is in your h200. Good news is this video card has yet to go pass 70 degrees while over clocking, and doesn't seem to be affecting the performance at all. Im getting about 70+ fps with max settings in 4k in GTAV easy.
