    Thinking I should learn Mandarin, so I can use TB directly and still have the option of buying agents, so many options on TaoBao these days!

    Neat, I couldn't get around the weirdness with my account - it would never let me actually set up a username/password and 2FA, just kept breaking on me and google translate wasn't very helpful :(

    It's been a while since I've been interested in anything Louqe.

    12900K ITX build in Lian Li PC-TU150?

    I've been just using NUC for past ~4 months and don't have any issue since I'm not playing any games(or doing anything that's remotely cpu/gpu demanding).. but I bought a 12900K from sales section recently(impulse buy) and doesn't seem to be any interest when I put ad up to resell it.
    So I'm thinking maybe I'll build a 12900K ITX gaming machine, since I have ~half the parts already.

    Specs: (* = have already)
    CPU: Intel i9 12900K *
    HSF: Noctua NH-D15S or U12A (think they both fit fine in TU150? & good enough to cool 12900K)
    M/B: Asus or Gigabyte Z690 chipset ITX mobo with DDR4, e.g. Gigabyte Z690I Aorus Ultra D4
    RAM: 16GB(2x 8GB) Gigabyte Aorus 4800 DDR4 RGB RAM *
    GPU: something ~$800-$1200 new probably.. gotta run cool and quite all the time oc
    SSD: 1TB Samsung 980 Pro M.2 *
    Case: Lian Li PC-TU150(in silver & windowless) *
    PSU: Corsair SF750

    Any suggestions? do I need any extra case fans etc?
    (I have cpu, ram, ssd, case already.. so just need cooler, itx mobo, gpu and psu)

    If you currently own a Z690 ITX setup, can you please post your specs or pm me.
    I was gonna build Z690 ITX setup but now i'm reluctant due to possible RAM and/or PCI-E 4 issues with Z690I..

    Honestly, I think I'd just rather an NR200P if that's what the Louqe is...

    Also how tf does one pronounce Louqe?! I just realised it could be 'Low Key'.

    That's your prerogative. The NR200 is hideous, uses cheaper material, is bigger, and less space-optimised (can't fit a D15 natively).

    And is exactly why I said "I would rather". ;)

    The layout is pretty well exactly the same... just compacted a little more.

    The better cooler compatibility is definitely a bonus!

    guess most people here like tiny.

    Caselabs Mercury S3 ITX still best ITX i have ever used, except the fact it is not tiny :D

    the NR200 i built the mrs system in, tbh i hated, never really liked any coolermaster cases ever, always feel cheap and flimsy, guess, apart from lian li these days, to me all cases feel cheap and flimsy compare to my caselabs cases :D

    Great job - I have case envy!

    It truly amazes me how quickly SFF keeps improving on things that actually impact the building experience. Now if someone would come up with a power bleeder for SFF water cooling I'd be a happy man.

    Thanks guys.

    It was a lot of fun to choose all the parts and hunt them down :)

    But water cooling without a decently sized res is an absolute joke lol. That took so many hours of tilting and bleeding just to get the air bubbles out of the pump.

    The end result, now that it’s whisper quiet, is very satisfying though! I understand why you guys are all about this form factor though. I definitely won’t be going back to something bigger.

    So I paid attention to my temps when I built my 3700x NR200 a while back but since then had a few UEFI updates (importantly AGESA 1207 for stutter fix) and decided to enable the AMD overlay.

    ~66C at "idle" (~11% util) :shock::shock:

    I mean it is with silent fan profiles and default overdrive... But 7 case fans! Only the Wraith Prism cooler though... Anyway I just bought a Fuma 2 rev B and paid for expedited shipping. :lol:

    EDIT: And now it's idling at 42C (0% util) lol. This PBO is really weird.

    Finally built a new PC, and M-ITX for the first time!
    Man they've changed a lot in the ~11 years since I built my X58 system.

    Final Specs were:
    Lian Li Q58
    I7 12700K
    ROG STRIX Z690-i
    32GB DDR5
    2TB 970 Pro Evo
    RTX 3070TI FTW3
    Phanteks Revolt 750W SFX
    NZXT Kraken X63 280mm AIO

    The AIO was a very very tight fit, both on the motherboard and the case.
    The outlet is touching the M2 Stack, and had to put the fans on top to fit the rad.
    The GPU fits well, no problems there at all, the case supports 3 slot cards.
    It annoys me that the AIO needs a SATA power connector, as otherwise I'd not need that cable there at all.

    Just need to sort out some better cable management.

    So I got the Fuma 2 rev.B installed in my NR200. The darn side fan bracket doesn't fit over the heatpipe tips... I don't have a dremel or even a proper drill so wasn't able to make any small modifications to let the heatpipes through. In the end I just screwed the (now single) 140mm fan into the side panel as the holes lined up near perfect. The magnetic mesh is stuck on the outside of that side panel now because I didn't want to poke holes in it to find out it would touch the fan anyway... :lol:

    Now question time... how many fans are too many for a single motherboard fan header? On my ROG B550i case fan header I've got:
    2x P12 slim @ 0.12A
    2x P12 @ 0.08A
    1x P14 @ 0.12A
    = 0.52A
    And supposedly a MB fan header can do 0.8-1A ?
