Description

I was in a dark place. A sad place. I was far from home, working in a scary new place. But really I was just board so what better solution than a new PC! My primary goal was to have a decent system that I would be able to throw in my backpack and take back home after my time in florida was over. It was more difficult than I had anticipated because not a lot of htpc and mini iTX cases fit in a bag! I really wanted to get a node 202 but it was to large! I had to settle for an overpriced and over engineered case with a lot of sacrifices. In the end I think it was all worth it even if I had to over spend on or sacrifice on GPU length, PSU capacity, cpu cooler, and HDD/ssd capacity.

I do have some things to say about the Anne pro 2 keyboard. It's not all that good. It's too expensive for what it is. It if super portable thought.

This case doesn't come with a power button! Weirdest this ever! I forgot where I bought mine though. That's about it. It's a good system but definitely overpriced

I think you should go for brickless build; it will make your life easier without the need to carry the Dell power brick around. Otherwise, great build. Upvote from me.

I wanted too! But I didn't and still don't have enough for a more powerful And smaller card. With my GPU the hdplex 400 won't fit :(

400W is enough to run 9700k and GTX 1080ti and a little bit of undervolt. Get a custom GPU low-profile io bracket to get it fit with any tall GPU card in the brickless build.

np! I really like the idea of a portable PC. Do you bring a monitor with you? or do you just use a tv?

Omg yeah I didn't put it in but I got a 13in USB c 1080p monitor. It's okay but overpriced at $160

I 100% agree that the SK4 Mini is a very expensive case. Which is why I jumped on a local deal for a Sentry 1.1 for $140. Slightly larger (it's around 7, 8L) but still fits in my backpack. Benefits of the Sentry 1.1 (and 2.0, which are nearly identical) is that I get to use a SFX PSU. Neat build overall!

That's what I originally wanted but it would have arrived after I left Florida
