Description

A Powerful Gaming\Workstation Build

My first priority is portability. I mean International portability, one where I can carry this through the airport. (I’m done with laptops. No matter how powerful my Alienware M17x R2 is). Secondly, a powerful gaming machine. This also serves my 3d work needs as I’m into animation. I need the power to develops heavy assets in Maya and other packages. Third and not the least, my machine needs to be quiet. I don’t mind a little bit of noise, I’m used to it frankly. But as this is my Best built Machine yet, I want quiet. No compromises.

LOL.. Build her a pc, I'm sure she will change her mind.

jambii420 1 Build 2 points 41 months ago

Lol love the black and white filter. Makes it look so classy. +3 for kenshin!

harshadb submitter 1 Build 2 points 41 months ago

Thanks. I'll add my +3 for kenshin too, hah! Love him.

Very nice build I have the same case. If you put the fan filters on the outside of the bracket, you can twist them off for easier cleaning.

harshadb submitter 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

That is real sound advice, man. Awesome idea! Though I have replaced those filters with Demci-Filters now.

Congratulations on the great build and the great photography as well! It's interesting that you mentioned international portability as I also have the same thing in mind for my upcoming build (using the Ncase M1 V4 that just arrived today). I had three queries, it would be great if you could answer:

  1. Do you think the liquid cooling will pose any problems in the airport/airlines check-in/carry-on? (I would like to go with liquid AIO cooling also but this is my only worry)
  2. Would you put this in carry-on luggage (in the cabin), or check-in luggage?
  3. How are you planning to carry? Any particular suitcase or carry system in mind?

That's an awesome case!

bensonhui 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

I fell in love with this case now.

harshadb submitter 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

With you on this. Its a beauty, aint it? :)

bensonhui 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

It makes me wanna get rid of my Fractal R4. But I will need a new MB. Do you travel with this a lot? How do you get a monitor to work?

harshadb submitter 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

The first time I traveled with this case, I had planned to purchase another monitor at the destination. Then I got the LG Ultrawide 25UM65-P. Granted its the smallest of the ultrawide series but when put in its box its just like a small suitcase, except a little wide. So it wont be a big deal next time I want to take it with me.

Not bad but I don't like that huge open dust gap next to the GPU.

harshadb submitter 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

Hmm, I have removed the whole side panel for that picture. I am not clear what you mean by huge open dust gap... have a look at other photos on my website, let me know.

vordar 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

Twice the size as Battousai, the Man Slayer... but still not nearly as powerful.

harshadb submitter 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

Its not about size is it? And Of course, I agree Battousai is a Legend. I can't compete with him, but this was more of a compliment. :)

weredawg 1 point 41 months ago

"Develops heavy assets... other packages" So what's this beautiful machine really rendering eh?

Muhkyle 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

All about that Kingfisher in the first shot... great build!

That's one of the nicest ITX cases I've ever seen!

jrhigs 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

This is amazing work Harshad. Well done! I have this case too and have also flown with it for a LAN at my brother's house back home. Everyone asked who's computer I was using, knowing that I had flown to get there, and were floored when I responded that I was using my own. It was also one of the most powerful and silent rigs there. I can't help but smile when I see ITX builds like this. Bravo.

harshadb submitter 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

Thanks man! Also That must have been a great proud moment you had there at your bro's. Thumbs up!

dreballs 1 point 35 months ago

hey man awesome build! I love that case so much.... I was wondering how your experience with the Silverstone 600W PSU has been? Ive heard that it can be kinda loud and that it sometimes has some sort of whining noise?

harshadb submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

OK late reply, I'm not here that much. But I thought I will still reply. I haven't had any problems with the Silverstone 600W psu. No loud noises or whining noises. I think it was the v1 iteration, the updated ones don't have these problems.

mannymal 1 point 30 months ago

Nice build. How are the temperatures? I am planning a build around the M1 case, but I am worried to use an open cooler GPU which is gonna dump a lot of hot air inside the case along with the Corsair H100i doing the same.

mannymal 1 point 30 months ago

Also, are you running the CPU cooler bringing air into the cause, or sucking it out?
