I'll be toting this PC around for Extra Life gatherings in my area and other related events. I decided I wanted to build a LAN PC that could play 144FPS/1080p but still be able to stream. I've built in a Caselabs Bullet BH4, but I didn't really like the layout or the hassle of getting in and out of the case. I originally built this in a BitFenix Prodigy, but after toting it around a few places, the bottom skid cracked in spite of care.
So here we are at the Phanteks Evolv ITX TG. Thanks go out to Performance-PCs.com's Modding Department for improving the airflow through the front and top panels. Since I wanted to make the case more portable, they installed MNPCTech's Anodized Billet Handles. As a finishing touch, they etched my logo into the tempered glass.
I wanted more room for cleaner cable management, so I removed the HDD cage, which meant I had to install the HDD on top of the Phanteks shroud flap. I'd have preferred to install a second m2 drive, but the only mobo that carries that is the Asus itx mobos and those are hard to come by at the moment.
This is my first AS Rock motherboard, and I'm pretty happy with it overall. The RGB system is a bit underwhelming. I still think that Asus's Aura system is the best solution so far. (having tried MSI, Gigabyte, and Corsair's CUE.) I'm using a 200mm RGB Coolermaster fan for intake, a Coolermaster LED strip on the top and 2 PHantek LED strips tucked behind the glass to better illuminate the glass etching.
