First build in a while, 2011 was the last. Main use this build is for gaming.
The mini-itx form factor is great. This is also my first build with tackling AIO and water cooling.
Only issues with the build were the small form factor and needing to take out the graphics card and radiator and fan every time I needed to make modifications or add parts. Additionally I would have to do the same thing for the top radiator.
Temps are great though with the water cooling, idling at 35C, gaming at 55-65C. Peaking at 80c with stress test while overclocking and hovering around 75C.
I have gotten a stable 4.8ghz at 1.200v. I have not tried to overclock the GPU yet as it is running great.
The last touches I put to it were custom cables and LED lights that use the Aura controller off the mobo.
I may have messed up on ordering the fans as I tried to replace the stock EVGA fan on the 1080 ti but it only uses 2 pins instead of 3, so I went back with the stock fan and put the extra fan on the bottom of the case. The two front fans are 120s right now, I am considering 140s but I would not have room for the LED lights, and I am not sure if the additional air flow is needed or if there are any benefits from the setup that I have now.
Great, difficult to work with in a smaller case, such as the Nano S. You need to install everything first, ram, cpu, etc. before putting the mobo in the case to make sure you have room for everything
Great so far, easy to overclock. Love the two m.2 drives is great, only using one so far, which is great for expansion.
Great M.2 NVME, excited to see where this form factor can go and have only used one of the two slots so far on the mobo.
Runs cool, a little bit of coil wine and stiff.
Great small form factor design, easy to build in and good cable management.
Great replacement for the stock corsair H100iv2 fans
Good case fan
