*UPDATE***

The 'Tiny Monster Gaming PC' Benchmarks are finally here, sorry it took so long get a video out, but you can check out the results here: https://youtu.be/1r_AwE3RJzA

Let me know what you guys think :D

I built a mini ITX gaming pc with a full size Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition graphics card inside a Raijintek Metis Plus case .

Check out my youtube video on this build, let me know what you guys think. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjRPE_TOvrTL5JQspB4Sm8Q

Total cost of this build was roughly under £1400 early February 2017

Wow that is a case I've never seen before! Very nice build!

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 7 points 9 months ago

Thanks, it was fun building it!

mdsmichigan 3 Builds 7 points 9 months ago

Great youtube vid too, looks professionally done! But did you remove the plastic shrink from the RAM?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 3 points 9 months ago

Thanks dude, the plastic shrink on the logo do you mean?

mdsmichigan 3 Builds 4 points 9 months ago

Yea, there's a good shot of it at 1:26

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 5 points 9 months ago

Great spot dude, can't remember if I did remove it, I will have a look now, cheers!!

Ryan1985 1 Build 7 points 9 months ago

Love this build. How is the gtx1070's temps?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 3 points 9 months ago

Haven't done any test yet but on idle its at 24-26° C but stay tuned I will give you a full update soon :D

EdInk 11 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Wow! How cool is it in that room for the FE to hover at 24-26 idle? Incredible.

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Its in quite a big room, my windows are single glazed so its freezing in here!

Venenosa 5 points 9 months ago

What an absolutely gorgeous build, wow! Everything is so tidy and it fits so perfectly, well done dude, I might just look into this case, you made me mighty interested in it, +1 :D

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Nice one, cheers :))

Venenosa 3 points 9 months ago

Btw, that side panel, I see that u bought it and customized it yourself. How did you cut it, and did you drill the holes in it for the screws? I've never seen how you actually do the process so forgive me if my questions are silly. Would be neat if you made a lil video of it, just saying since ur video quality is so good haha

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I bought the plastic panel via amazon uk http://amzn.to/2ls7XhR and a "acrylic cutting tool." This guy shows how to cut it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCeHx-vvJ7k This guy shows how to drill https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uao-sinxbBs But yeah thats a good idea, I will make a how to video on creating on the side panel for this lovely case. Cheers :DD

Venenosa 2 points 9 months ago

Oh wow, thanks for the links man! And I subbed to you bro, so I'll definitely watch your how to video when you post it. Even more so now that I have fallen in love with this little case, and would like to have a pretty window like that too :D

Mike2015 2 Builds 3 points 9 months ago

Great build. Lot of power in that case. I built in the red version of this case, but not the "Plus" version (I don't have the top fan). I ended up reversing the back fan so the back fan is intake on my build and then the PSU fan would be the exhaust. Will be interested to see what your temperatures are. Are you overclocking the CPU yet?

P.S. Great video!

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Yeah thats the best airflow if you don't have vent at the top, I would of done the same. At some point I will be overclocking the CPU, I'm gonna do a few default settings test first and see how it copes, if the temps are too high I might mod case further, possibly create a second vent directly above the GPU fan and put in another intake fan.

Mike2015 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Here is a review of the Metis Plus case and they got drastically better temperatures with the rear fan reversed. Granted, in the review they didn't install fan at the top, but the drop in temperature with the rear fan reversed was huge.

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Awesome find dude, originally I was going to use the back fan as an intake, (This was with the metis classic in mind - case without top vent) only reason why I haven't done so is because the psu I have only spins when its on low-mid load, I've thrown battlefield 1 on ultra settings and it still has spun lol. So either the psu is either broken or it can take the heat lol.

In my follow up video to the next one about temps, and fps, I will definitely turn the fans around and compare it to the temp results in its current state.

milkyranks 2 points 9 months ago

Awesome! Job but what are the temps like?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

So far on idle the graphics card is at 24-26°C and the cpu 27-28°C but I will be testing it properly very soon :))

1111dionysus 2 points 9 months ago

I really like it - thinking about building it myself!

OnedayUJ 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Very sweet... How much noise does it generate? I am tempted to build an itx machine but always worried that it will overheat. Would be great to see your temps. +1 in anycase... Sweet little build

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Cheers dude, noise levels are superb for a build this size suprisingly, in my next youtube video I will talk more about the levels, as I also use a strange trick to make it even quieter!

Marnitz-Roux 2 points 9 months ago

The fan grille above the GPU should've been on the other side haha, would've worked perfectly with the founders edition card that way

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Totally agree! I am thinking about installing another fan directly above the GPU, because that would be the ideal airflow for this card. :DD

Zezainster 18 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Simply stunning! Good job.

CraftyRam 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Very nice build, might have to borrow it!!! * wink wink* Couple of quick questions though, in the video you said you removed the top-mounted hard drive mount to fit the gpu, was this the mount for a 3.5" drive, if so do the bottom mounts, where you mounted the ssd, only fit a 2.5" drive? Another quick question is about the side panel. On the website it shows a small plexi window, but you have a full plexi / glass side panel, did you custom order that or make it yourself?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Haha I highly recommend this build, if you are looking for a small one:D

The mount can be used for either a 3.5 or 2.5 drive when mounted to the top, whereas the bottom of the panel can fit either 2x 2.5 drives or 1x 3.5 drive.

I bought the plexi window that was the closest size to the original panel, and bought an acrylic knife to cut it down to size. I then drilled holes matching to the ones of the case. Be sure to start off with a small drill bit and work your way up, drill slow too as acrylic can easily crack.

CraftyRam 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

THANKS M8!!! I definitely might do this because I love the super small form factor and size of the build!

Daiphelion 2 points 9 months ago

Beautifully snug ^

jakethemp 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

why didnt ya splurge and go with the black industrial noctuas?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I kinda wanted the fans to stand out, most people don't like the colour, but I like the vintage look of the fans, especially in a bright white new case

jakethemp 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

I had a pair and put the red rubber on the edges made it look great.. i love the fans but hated the poop brown color but damn that looks clean in there

colinreay 3 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

What a nice build! Nice clean photos that show the case, impeccable cable management, and a simple yet beautiful side panel mod! It's builds like this that I look towards for inspiration.

Your video is also great!

Holy crap though RIP anyone with epilepsy during the RGB fest at the end

Do you know where this case is available in the US?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Amazon have it, but they only sell the model without the top vent by the looks of it http://amzn.to/2l8SO3i

Gooberdad 7 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Just cut a hole and add a filter to cover the fan blades. That manufacturer version is sweet though.

Just logged in to upvote this, love mini-itx builds and this is straight to the point, how's dust in there ?? I didn't see any dust filters in the pic's, cheers for the cool build.

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

The top vent has a dust filter, but overall its looking clean inside. Only part where I can see dust come in from is where the existing usb and audio ports used to be on the top of the case. I just put LED remote on top to cover it for now lol

EdInk 11 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Is it a quiet case?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

For me personally, super quiet. :))

Manifestoplus 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Very nice! Don't take me wrong, but I don't like the fact that you removed or had to remove the front USB / Audio panel. It make 4 empty holes on top. Other then that, wow!

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I didn't want to remove it either to be honest, it was the only way to get that monster of a card in. :DDD

maverickvii 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Great build. I love that case, almost bought it but went with a core V1 instead. with such a large aircooler in a horizontal orientation are you having any trouble with motherboard strain?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I actually almost bought the core V1 myself, its probably one of the best designed itx cases out there with very efficient airflow and good accessibility. The only reason why I went for the Metis plus, is because I wanted a smaller pc case lol.

The MSI z270i seems to be holding up the air cooler really well, doesn't seem to be any strain all, i think the motherboard is well built and the cooler is light enough for it. Originally I was going to get the Noctua NH-D14 which is double the size with 2 fans! But I wasn't sure if it was gonna fit the setup haha!

nlight-dev 1 point 9 months ago

@maverickvii - Thinking maybe to also use Core V1 for this build. Does Core V1 fix the motherboard strain issue, i.e. is the motherboard in a different position in this case?

Also do you have the exact same configuration as in this build, with the i7 7700K CPU and using the Core V1?

Thanks!

nlight-dev 1 point 9 months ago

@maverickvii - also did you do any tests on the Core V1 case with the i7 and GTX 1070 to see temperatures on intensive tasks? Thanks!

maverickvii 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Core V1 only "fixes" strain in that MB is oriented horizontally not vertically. My configuration is similar but not the same. I never tested i7s because they offer little benefit for gaming.

nlight-dev 2 points 9 months ago

First of all thanks a lot for posting this, really nice build, really well fitted together and the result is impressive.

Any idea about temperatures when doing intensive tasks or running benchmarking software(PCMark or similar)? I've took almost the whole day to find best prices for the components and now I'm one step to ordering it, it'd really help to know.

Thanks a lot!

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I haven't done any test yet, but I've had a go on BF1 on ultra settings at 60fps with gpu temperatures reaching 40-50°C and cpu temperatures hitting 55-63°C, so far everything seems to be running smooth :D

nlight-dev 2 points 9 months ago

Thanks a lot!

Btw, any specific reason you chose the GTX 1070 Founders Edition instead of going with for example, EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB FTW Gaming ACX 3.0?

I saw some review on the Founders Edition(https://www.pcgamesn.com/nvidia-gtx-1070-benchmarks) and they don't give it a great review, although I see a lot of good reviews for it on Amazon.

I'm looking for a reason to choose it over the others and for me I'm only worried if it's worth it's price and about the noise level for Founders Edition, since it has only 1 fan and I don't plan hearing it without wearing any headset on. Also, any noise coming from it when not playing any games?

PS: I'm planning to use the Thermaltake Core V1 case

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Great questions dude, I chose the GTX 1070 Founders Edition (Blower type graphics card) over a card like the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 (Open Air type graphics card) mainly because the size of the PC case i bought, which is the Metis Plus.

Reason being, is because the case is so compact with limited airflow, a blower card is a better option for it as it would disperse hot air in one direction which is out the rear. Whereas an open air card would disperse heat evenly around the card but also heating the other components , which is not ideal in a compact case.

Blower card - PROS: Great for compact pc builds as it will direct hot air in one direction to the rear of the PC case CONS: Can run hot, limited overclocking capabilities

Open Air card - PROS: Runs cooler, more overclocking capabilities CONS: Not ideal for compact case as the hot air from the card will be dispersed amongst other pc components (Unless the compact pc case has really good cooling and airflow then it might be ok)

Personally I find the founders edition noise levels great, even when i play Battlefield 1 on max ultra settings, I don't even notice it. On idle i find it just as quiet, but everyone has a different hearing sensitivity so it would be difficult say.

The thermaltake core v1 is a great choice, nice design, awesome air flow and the components are easy to access. Depending on how your cooling/airflow is setup, either card will be good for that case :DD

nlight-dev 2 points 9 months ago

Thanks a lot for the detailed reply!

Indeed, since having in mind the thermaltake core v1 and after some time reading reviews, have actually decided on the Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5 256 bit Mini. It has 2 fans, so probably better cooling and planning to put liquid cooling on the CPU as the case supports it. Also, when idling, the fans stop completely and people say it's very quiet - hope my noise sensitivity is the same as theirs and I won't be hearing anything from it :)

Hope things will go fine with assembly, it's my first build with liquid cooling.

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

So how terrified were you with the GPU possibly not fitting? That has got to be the most snug fit ever. The completely gigantic heatsink is a surprise too, given the case size. Grats man!

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I did a little research before hand, but there was nothing concrete online to say it would 100% fit but I thought I could always just return the GPU if it didn't :D

I’m planning to build a similar setup but I want to keep USB ports and audio. Maybe upgrade cables or 90 Degree Angle USB can help? Can you post I/O panel picture?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Yeah if you upgrade to angle usbs or thinner cables will do the trick

Can I ask, I'm going to do a similar build with an i5-7500 (non k) and evga 1070 ftw edition. Is the 450W Corsair sfpsu good enough? Also is the extra space you get from an sfx pay worth the extra ~~$30-40 it usually costs? Thanks!

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

The SF450 will be enough for that configuration. The extra space will allow you to fit the evga 1070 ftw edition, so I would say yeah definitely pay the extra :D

BeWaReJay 2 points 5 months ago

I really don't understand....

why you don't have more subs.

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

I would love more subs :DD

BeWaReJay 1 point 4 months ago

lol great PC build but can you fit everything, even if it's tight, instead of cutting the edges or something of the graphics card (or it was the cpu fan i forgot)? Thanks

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

All of it fits with no problem :D

BeWaReJay 1 point 4 months ago

ok dude thanks for your support, and btw when you invest more money from youtube and from work (if you have a job) can do you a $2000 killer gaming pc? It would be interesting considering you pick the best parts to balance everything out. Also i'm proud to be your 2,235th subscriber lol.

HenrikDK 2 points 3 months ago

As I already commented on UR Youtube video. Great build, and the start 4 me to try my first ITX build. Just got the Metis Plus in blue, and waiting for the last stuff to arrive. Tried to put my Corsair RM550x in the case, but it was getting way to tight inside 4 my taste. But it fits with a small graphics card. Ordered the SF450 seeing You used the SF600. Great fit and with Corsairs SFX to ATX adaptor no modding necessary to fit the powercable. Thx allot 4 the share of UR work M8.

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks dude, I hope you enjoyed building it as much as I did :DD

matdave 2 points 2 months ago

I just built this and it's awesome. I'd love to see a little more depth about how you ran the PSU cables. The Corsair SF600 cables are super stiff!

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Tell me about it, they are tricky to manage. All I did was hid as much of the cable behind the psu as much as possible. At one point I will upgrade the cables via cable mod or so, to have the correct lengths and better manageability.

Ebruhn113 2 points 13 days ago

awesome cable management, and in such a tiny case, I love it!

Looks nice but i cant imagine good air circulation. The temps must be high while heavy loads

myles_dumontelle 1 point 7 months ago

Awesome looking pc...just wish that case had some sorta intake on the bottom or front...the gpu will hog all the intake airflow

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

Tell me about it! I'll be modifying the case very soon to hopefully have a front and extra intake at the top. I'll keep you posted :DD

myles_dumontelle 2 points 7 months ago

That would be nice...I'll be building a pc in the near future and that was my only concern with using that case...otherwise, it looks beautiful

leviathan102 1 point 5 months ago

What are the dimensions of the panel after it is cut?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

Check this guide i made on youtube https://youtu.be/SiM04iweOHM

MuchHope 1 point 5 months ago

So if I were to build this, would it run game in like a full tower pc would? Is there any down falls in performance when putting it in a smaller case for the price?

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

Performance will be just as good as a full size tower pc, it cost slighty more for certain parts like the motherboard and psu because they are small form factor.

You can check my youtube video of all the test i've done for this build here: https://youtu.be/1r_AwE3RJzA

ukufa 1 point 4 months ago

only one cuestion, you use DDR4 3000 memory, The intel info about CPU says that can support DDR4-2133/2400, DDR3L-1333/1600 @ 1.35V so is ok to use this DDR4 3000 can the CPU manage that? in other words is worth it to use 3000 if only can support 2400 or is something i just missing here.

suspectlovemaker submitter 2 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

Yep you can use it, it will be locked to 2133 or 2400 anyway unless you change it in bios to 3000. Personally i haven't seen in any difference in performance from 2133/2400 to 3000

Hi dude many greetings from Greece. I really like your build is fantastic! A short question...because i already have some spare parts and the raijintek metis plus windowed. Is it possible (with the same cooling as your rig (noctua nh u12s) and same sfx psu) to fit at the bottom of the case an 3,5 inch hard disk? Is it possible the 3,5 inch hard disk to interfere with noctua nh u12s? Or it is ok? Because iam going to remove the drive cage to fit my vga (24mm length). And a second question whats in your opinion would be the best fan setup (intake - exhaust) for maximum cooling performance?

Thanks in advance bro! :)

So, was there no other way to fit the card without removing the USB FP? I like this case but I'll be using a full size card and removing the USB FP and audio would be a deal breaker to me. What if you had used a dual fan card instead of an OEM blower style card?

Wow, I love the sight of these build. Though, I'm having trouble getting the GTX1070, does it have to be that exact or are there other alternatives I can use? This will be my first pc I build.

why does it say it only suppors 6 and a half inch cards but you have a full on gtx 1070 in there

Its ideal to use a small graphics card if you want to fit a 3.5 hard drive mount at the top or a full size psu.

But if you don't intend to use them, you can fit a full size graphics card.
