Since the news crashed in about how Haswell would suffer from Spectre and Meltdown, I knew that it's time for a new compact powerful tower.
After contemplating on how to have an anything-goes PC, my finalized spec came out as listed
Since the most important aspect for this build is compact but powerful, there are no choice but to build the enclosure myself
Using the 10x10 aluminum extrusion from the Makerbeam kit, I created the main frame for the case using the 40mm, 150mm, 200mm, 300mm
Height: 10 + 300 + 10 + 40 + 10 = 370mm
Width: 10 + 150 + 10 = 170mm
The total volume is 370 x 170 x 200 = 12.58 Litres
The SLI is done via bifurcation from 16x -> 8x8x slots using the bifurcation riser from Ameri-rack
