!! FOR SALE !!
I was tired of my old, big and loud desktop PC. I decided to replace it with something smaller. After a short date with gaming laptops, which turned out to be hotter and louder, I built something based on the mini itx platform.
Currently, this is my main software development machine. Everything works great, except the Cryorig CPU cooler.
UPDATE: Really funny. Changed to Cryorig H7 and finally - absolutely silent on idle/light work and much more quieter under full load. The strangest thing is that CPU temps dropped by 3-4 degrees C on idle and full load with 7700k. The only advantage of H5 Universal is the build quality and better look.
UPDATE 2: After 30 minutes of stressing with Prime95 + Furmark, CPU reached 78°C max, GPU 67°C max. IMO not bad.
UPDATE 3: Using SPL Meter app, I've measured the noise level of whole rig. Phone was placed 10cm from the case window. With the computer completely off, application showed 31.7-31.8dB. With PC on idle, app showed 31.9-32.0dB. Not bad, right?
Hard to say anything. Absolute performance.
Looks great, but I have problem with a loud fan (bearing sound). Ordered XT140 fan as replacement and you know what? The same issue. Really disappointed. As for the CPU temps I thought it would be better. This is the loudest part in my build. I would definitely not recommend this CPU cooler.

Lots of USB ports on the back panel. Two M.2 ports. Front mounted M.2 960 EVO has a few degrees less without heatsink. Great fan control.
UPDATE: Changed rating from 5 to 4 because of 2 things: 1) Did not realize there is no USB 2.0 header, so you cannot connect most of fancy AIO or Air coolers. 2) Last BIOS update (812) causes system instability.
Nothing special. It just works :)
Blazing fast but also little hot. About 45-51'C on idle.
Enough for my needs. Definitely faster than GTX 1060 in gaming laptops. Great cooling, inaudible up to about 50 degrees. A little loud under full load.
Amazing case. Great look and build quality. However, if you are building an absolutely silent PC, choose windowless variant.
Great power supply. Hearable only under full load.
Completely inaudiable. I can barely hear it even with my ear close to the fan.
