Description

Who said that bigger is better?!

Using this little monster as my personal audio workstation. The small size is giving me the opportunity to have it with me in a backpack instead of a boring laptop.

I had to mod the top of the case, because of temperatures, and I'm glad I did. I think it turned out epic.

After testing for weeks I finally made a delid on the cpu wich gave me some more room.

Before delid (85-90c) After delid (65-80c) Testet with full load on all cores.

And.. If someone wonder. After the delid I did ofc try the original closed top for the case. But no, still getting to hot after some time with load. Problem with this case in its original way, is that it can't get rid of all the heat from the cpu and other parts.

This is the stuff. No RGB. No 8700K + 1080 Ti combo.

I'm curious how snug in there the power supply is, can't tell from the pictures. Cool rig! +1

fun design but beware the dust goes through the holes

Yeah, that's why I made it so that the lit is easy to lift off.

This case will be used in my next build with a 2400G, I've fallen in love with it...i think i'll be "borrowing" your idea to drill holes in the top ;) love the build buddy.

Sorry for the late comment. I missed this one.

Love it. This thing is so tiny and man 12 threads working in there. Wow.

Thumbs up.

I am going to build this same thing, but with a AS Rock board that has a thunderbolt 3 port. So I can use my eGPU on either my desktop or my laptop =P Know a good place to get the case/psu delivered to the US fairly cheap?

Hi there. How did you get the top of the case like that? Is that tempered glass or is that acrylic plastic? Love that look, but a bit concerned about not dust filter. That being said, a small computer like that would be quite easy to clean out anyway.

Looks great!

Hello, you have built very nice system but I would like to ask you something. Your PicoPSU is 160W. What about your power adapter?

The PSU only delivers a 4PIN CPU. How did you manage to give the motherboard enough power via an 8pin connector?

Guess you meant to write delivers a 4 pin connector?

I just put the 4 pin in the 8 pin connector. Done 100 of times before

You can't keep the temps down without the holes! I tried so many things. But not with the 8700. I even deliddet the cpu now for even better results.

Problem is, that there is really no other fans going on in the case. That's why you'll need the modded top.

Well, even the new Mac mini with the same cpu is giving people temps at 95-100c under load.

Hello, Did you try to mount a 40mm fan? Is your cpu cooler directly against the die or did you put back the IHS after changing the paste? Did you use thermal paste or liquid metal? I'm building the same PC but with an i9-9900 non-K.. that's quiet challenging I know. I might have to drill some holes.
