Description

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

Well, it's not everyday you see something with G-Uniq branding and - wait -

fitting the brick in the otherwise wasted space under the GPU

Wha- how did- I don't- I've gotta say, that was unexpected indeed. Did he fab his own power converting system or did he remove and reassemble an existing AC-DC solution? Is there even space for a transformer down there or is it all solid state with some sort of controller? I'm... wow. What are the power limits on your system? 8700T would seem to sip power but the 2070 is no slouch. What kind of watts are you drawing, maybe 200W or so full load? And the way the C7Cu heatsink fits and looks... absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful aesthetic.

Gury really makes me rethink what's possible in power delivery. My builds so far have used standard SFX PSUs but I am itching to jump into the world of space efficient DC builds.

Can we see more pictures of your power supply arrangement? This is very cool!

Great build brother didn't know you could have this much power in 4.5L

Nooooooooooo! It's anodised space grey and it's staying that way!

This is really impressive. How are your thermals? How does that internal PSU power everything? Wattage? I'm honestly blown away with this design, and I want one.

75c for GPU under load, 50 for CPU. Case gets hot to touch as it's used to dissipate heat, however it sits vertically on my desk with PSU at top so it's not really an issue. PSU can do approximately 400w and is extremely high efficiency so can power a relatively powerful system for it's size.

Did the C7 fit the strix board without modification?

Awesome build!

Yeah, it actually fit quite well. Perfect fit it seems!

This little guy is supurb! That is a really nice fan above the C7 Cu. Don't see enough. It really marks a desire to utilize all your space.
