Description

This is my second PC built from scratch, one SSD and the CPU are from my first build and the rest was bought over the last few months. I started off with a full sized ATX build but it was far to big and a bit ugly, about 5 months ago it was in an accident which left most of it broken, I salvaged the CPU, SSD and RAM from it (the RAM is currently in a different PC) the monitor and mouse was also ok but I needed new parts, I wanted to go ITX since I love the form factor and that I didn't plan on dual GPUs. I based the colour theme on a set of headphones I own (Rock jaw acero for those interested) which are black, silver and orange and this was what I came up with. I will add more to this description later since it is late and I will also add more pictures too. (note in one pic the MSI 280x, I salvaged it in the hopes it still worked but I didn't)

From your Part List --> Other random stuff: £35.00 GBP

I wonder if this involves a Cadbury chocolate bar... I love me chocolate bar a lot.
... Back to the main point, this looks cool. I am sorry about your previous build with its accident. Thank goodness you were able to salvage some parts. Now you have an amazing build, again! You have my one for certain.

+1 For polaris and cool case! Don't think I've ever seen that one before. Glass side paneling AND all the usb/power buttons on the side? It's almost like it was designed so you could stare at your computer parts inside it all day. ;)

I think that was the intention of this case tbh. I'm glad I found it though and I'm glad I got a tower cooler not a top down or liquid one.

That case is awesome, nice to see another Freesync user on here.

Thanks and yeah Freesync is awesome, the 480 is causing a couple of issues which are probably driver related, on any loading screen I get screen flashes and line through it, once I'm in game it is fine so I guess I'll have to wait for updated drivers

Actually thats the fault of Etherium Miners similar to the Bitcoin miners with the 200 series of AMD cards so they drive up the prices of AMD cards for gamers

Hi i'm hoping one of you guys can help me.

I love the look of this inwin 901 itx case but i'm not sure if my 1080 amp extreme GPU card will fit in the slot. The length of the card is 320mm so its a big card. The inwin site states max of 300mm BUT people have had bigger cards in there. I just wanted to know if someone who had this case could measure the exact space/length available from front to back panel for a gpu card?

Cheers Az

It WOULD be 320mm however the design of the case means the PCI-E bracket for the card in pushed inside the case a little, I measure 308mm if you include this. So no the Zotac 1080 AMP Extreme! will not fit an alternative would be the ASUS version

Hello. I would just like to know if you can mount the m9i in a different orientation say, the fan blowing or pulling up? We have the same mobo layout. Mine is h97i ac. Thanks a lot.

You could but I wouldn't recommend it, at least not in this case.
