My previous build was an all RGB extravaganza, with Corsair LL fans all lit up inside a White Corsair Spec Omega case (the case has integrated RGB). It was certainly beautiful in the way any RGB build is, proudly looking like atomic rainbow unicorn vomit. But life moves on and it's time for a new PC. This time around I wanted something small (smaller than my previous ATX systems at least), powerful, visually quiet, and hassle free. This is my result! I'm very happy with how this build turned out.
It's primary use is gaming, and after spending a day at the office stress testing it, gathering thermal data, and fiddling with things, I'm happy! It's going to last a few years for sure.
CPU/GPU temps under high-load average 55C-60C. The fan setup is 2x Corsair ML140's on the front blowing air into the case. 2 120mm Corsair SP fans exhaust through the radiator out the top. I raised the top glass panel by a 1/4 inch with rubber washers to allow for more air exhaust.
