Hey all. SFF fan here, have been for a few years now, and since the release of the new Skyreach 4 mini Case I'm now able to build my ideal setup, with options to upgrade hardware down the track. I really like the idea of a compact, console sized PC with enough grunt to handle 1080p minimum on very high/ultra settings with very good frame rates. I think I've got the right combo. Still a build in progress, I would say about 80% complete. hopefully finished by Christmas all going well. Here goes (most of this is copypasta from my SFF forum thread). The idea behind this build had been in the back of my mind since joining SFF forums and seeing the original S4M-C case, and before the MSI Trident 3 Arctic was released (which I love). Because I had always wanted to build from the ground up, it was time to dive in and start collecting the bits & pieces. Build is aptly named due to its colour scheme, as you'll see in the photo gallery. Main Specs Case: NFC Skyreach 4 Mini, custom white semi-gloss powder coated CPU: i7 8700 non-k / 65w (RockitCool delidded, Liquid Ultra, relidded with RockitCool custom copperIHS) Motherboard: Asus Z370-I Strix GPU: MSI GTX1070 Aero ITX OC RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2 x 8GB 3000/CL15 DDR4 PSU: G-Unique 450w ArchDaemon L/E with SSD/HDD upgrade kit & PCB motherboard tray + 450w "ultimate" brick Button: Black / green LED ring from Modivio.com Heatsink: Thermolabs LP53 Heatsink Fan: Thermalright slim fan from AXP-100 (the black & white colour suits the build scheme). Boot drive: Samsung 960EVO 250gb Gaming drive: Micron 2TB SSD (MTFDDAK2T0TBN-1AR1ZABYY, ordered from eBay) Other/Media drive: 1tb WD black 7200rpm paired with an existing Samsung Evo 850 500gb with Intel RST (currently in use, I will be switching the 1tb WD black out for a 2tb Seagate barracuda or firecuda to use with the 850Evo on SRT, as the custom motherboard SSD tray allows up to 3 x SSDs) Secondary Specs Keyboard: Cougar Puri TKL cherry red Mouse: SteelSeries Rival 300 white Headphones: SteelSeries Arctis 7 white Monitor: Just using a shitty generic K-Mart one which was just used for my boys to play Wii-U on. Surprisingly does 60Hz / 1080p which is OK for now. New 27: 144Hz G-Sync is planned for Christmas. Additional info My SFF thread goes into more detail about delidding and effects of liquid metal on the pure copper lids, with links to a couple of youtube vids. I've bought a couple more copper CPU blocks from RockitCool and sent them to a place in Brissy that does electroplating. I had 2 RockitCool lids and another from eBay (which is done by a mob in Poland, purporting 20% more surface area coverage than standard intel lid) electroplated with nickel, to bring it back to the same appearance and surface material as the Intel lid for the sake of consistency, and less chance of gallium bonding / staining under the copper lid (from what I can understand, the staining is from gallium in the liquid metal paste "bonding" with the copper, not actual full corrosion - I'm no expert though and there's probably more educated users with a ton more experience than the half hour I spent delidding my first ever CPU - surprisingly easy though). No testing done yet, but once the coated lids get back to me and my build is complete, I'll probably do some more comprehensive testing / reporting, might even offload some on For Sale forums as I won't need all 3. I know it's only a non-K cpu but anything to help with lower temps is a plus in this small console case, and I'm not an overclocker (is that blasphemy mentioning that here?!?) Progress Gallery Imgur The Noctua cpu cooler fan in the gallery has since been replaced with the Thermalright 100mm fan. Can the Imgur gallery be embedded with code here on OCAU forums?
