Description

This is my second PC build that I have done for myself. I have always wanted a small form factor pc, but in the past I had to compromise too much on performance. Finally the market has afforded me the ability to create a monster in a very small amount of space and even have a wireless charger on the top of the case for my phone. Behold the "Majin" build!!

I use this pc for gaming mostly with the occational youtube video edit here and there. I am going to be using it as an all in one for streaming as well. So far its been so amazing and games defaulting to Ultra settings is always such a cool feeling.

This thing was a PITA to build but it was totally worth it and I love it!

It looks like a lot of performance per cubic inch. Did you keep the stock Ryzen cooler? More photos would be great.

Yes, its a little monster for sure. I am using the stock AMD Wraith prism cooler they give you with it. I have had no need to overclock for anything at this point and the fans move air in and out of the little box so well I haven't had any issues with throttling or performance at all. If I decide to push it later I might use an AIO but honestly don't think i'll need it. Even playing the Anthem demo it defaulted to ultra settings and it was like butter the whole time and I was loading zones way faster than anyone else most times lol. I will get more pictures ASAP for everyone. I was just so excited that I wanted to hurry and share the couple that I had and get this posted.

This looks amazing and the hardware packed into that case is dang impressive. Do those polaris fans really only have one wire coming off of them?

Thank you so much for the love. In a sense yes that's why I love them so much. All 4 of them are daisy chained together so it was really convenient for this build. Each fan has 2 proprietary 8 pin connectors to make the chain. Everything is going to 1 rgb header and because of the fan power specs I'm not worried about overloading the header or anything. Then there were a couple cables that had separate splits for an additional rgb device.

This is an awesome build!

More pictures with more lights, please? I'm really interested in this build, I'm looking to build a smaller PC for myself. I'm moving and downgrading BIG TIME, meaning no special gaming room, so everything is going to be downsized. lol

Thank you! I'll post a couple more soon. The small form factor is frustrating to plan and build but I think you'll love it in the end. I know I have!

This is beautiful in its efficient size to power ratio and in general! I have a novice question: I see you bought 2 - 2 packs of fans and this site's link links those to the manufacturer directly. Are these the same 2 pack on Amazon? ALSO, are all of the fans exhausting out? Two of the fans on the bottom pulling off the GPU, one on the side pulling off the PSU, one on back pulling from the CPU fan output?

I'm building this baby! :D You made my day, thank you for posting and sharing!

Thank you so much and its so awesome to hear that I inspired someone! Yes I bought these fans on amazon so the polaris twin packs that they have is what I bought. I have 3 set up as intake fans, 2 bottom intake towards the gpu so it doesn't starve for cooler air and the one under the psu is intake as well. The last fan towards the back is setup as exhaust to blow warm air out of the case. I am just going by the fact that heat always rises, so cool air from the lowest points and the exhaust fan should carry the warmest air out. Seems to be doing good so far and I don't seem to be experiencing any throttling at stock clock speeds for everything. These aren't high pressure fans but the fact that this box is so small they have no problem moving air. The fan on the processor is just the stock AMD wraith prism cooler that they give you when you buy it. Hope this helps and thanks for the love, hope you build it. You may have inspired me to make a video talking about my experience so thank you.

Awesome build! Is the Wraith Prism hitting the ram or is there enough space between them?
