Description

After waiting months to get my case I have finally created a monster, don’t let its size fool you. I originally planned to air cool it but the more I thought about it the more I wanted it to be liquid cooled, because of this I didn’t order the top hat when I ordered the case. I have since ordered the top hat to finally complete this build and I’ll update with some pictures the moment that comes in. For now enjoy!

I weirdly dig the external rad actually - I feel like if you painted the radiator and got some ring fans that show the lights on the outside you won't even need the top hat :P

Great build though and solid specs, that'll serve you well for a while to come I'm sure!

Thanks, I like the rad on the outside myself but with the dust and stuff in the place I got my rig anything I can do to help with that is huge

Reminds me of a similar build I saw a while ago on this site, https://pcpartpicker.com/b/cvQZxr

I was actually inspired to go with the water cooling because of that guy lol

It's an inspiration build for sure. You guys have me considering jumping on the topless ghost bandwagon as well.

I decided to use the Corsair h100i rgb and it’s a really tight fit with some compression on the tubes, if you do decide to go topless it might not be a bad idea to check some out that are a bit more flexible

Hmmm did try orienting the AIO in the other direction with tubes at the front? That is how stillbinary did it in their build and it looks to me like that would cause less tube flex.

For some reason I feel I tried it the way stillbinary has it but it wasnt working if I remember right it was because of the ram sticks I chose, I’ll double check this weekend and maybe switch the orientation lol

Nice build. Mini ITX motherboards are always so expensive though

This board is like $30-$40 cheaper than its full sized variant the Strix Z390-e

That's really good. You can save a few dollars I guess.

I feel you there, what has surprised me so far is despite the size I haven’t had to compromise on much other than USB ports and losing a few dollars to get an itx mobo lol

Well. If you want great performance, your going to have to sacrifice some money. I agree with you. Some motherboards dont have lots of USB ports. Specifically mini ITX motherboards

I haven’t ran any stress test yet I’ll hopefully get those in the next few weeks, right now temps have been great usually in the 30-40c on cpu, I haven’t watched much with the gpu but I will say it’s my only complaint because it is loud. Unfortunate space comes at a premium so loud wasn’t a deal breaker for me
