Hey all. I’ve been interested in SFF for a while now and coming over from large water-cooling systems that take up a lot of space on your desk and are made to draw attention has been a real breath of fresh air.
I recently built a PC in a Modivio xCase S and while I really enjoyed that chassis and I felt what they are doing with those was a great idea I started looking for something that fits in a bit more with my desktop. Something sleek, metallic and with some sharper edges. As a fan of the console style layout I first looked into the Skyreach and while I do love how that case looks, in the end I guess I was after something a bit more unique for me.
As I am active on Gury’s Discord server I saw him posting pictures of some cases he made for other clients there and became intrigued, so I reached out to him to ask if it’d be possible to design a console style case made to spec of the parts I planned to use;
Z370 ITX Motherboard of some variation QN8J Engineering Sample (8700t equivalent) Cryorig c7 cu Gigabyte ITX card of less than 170mm (1070/1080 and now 2070 mini)
He agreed and we got underway planning. At first I requested a system with an external power brick using his archdaemon solution as I had good experience with it in the past, however shortly into the designing of the case he proposed the possibility of fitting the brick in the otherwise wasted space under the GPU.
This is the final parts list and I have since completed the build, being a custom designed chassis for my needs this is the most satisfied I've ever been with a system I've put together.
Check out guryhwa's (G-Unique) discord server if you want to see more examples of his work, he's insanely talented and I couldn't have done this without him. https://discord.gg/wBYGRJ
