    Hi All,

    I built this a while back and haven't seen many like it on OCAU. Thought I would share for the SFF fans out there!
    I went down the SFF path and couldn't decide between the Zaber Sentry, Dancase A4 or the Louque Ghost...so I ended up getting something smaller that I could actually order at the time.

    It's basically an ultra portable LAN/Gaming rig that lets me attend LANs with just a backpack and monitor. All powered by a 330w Dell Laptop power brick.

    The 8700K is delidded and tuned in bios to run a peak TDP of 85watts.
    It can hit 4.7ghz on all cores but keep at an easier to manage 4.6ghz on all cores with 5ghz on 4 active cores.

    $3395 Inc W10Pro license.
    I shopped for deals over a number of months and bought most components using eBay sitewide vouchers...otherwise would have been closer to $4000.

    Funny looking at the price of the 8700k now more than a year later. It was about $60 cheaper when I bought it.
