Description

Needed a true gaming PC to complete my set-up, Have a workstation I've been using as my gamer for quite some time now, and a server as well. But this was overdue.

Wanted a higher end machine, but something relatively small so I can take it with me when I travel. I actually saw here on PC partpicker the LZ7 case, and was very impressed. I managed to get one of the first production batch (I think of 20?, Mine is Serial # 5 :P )

Managed to overclock without temperature issues. Although this case was expensive and I had to ship it from the UK (I'm from the US) I think it was totally worth it to allow so much performance in such a portable package.

Wow! Great build. I was browsing through when I saw your build, the case immediately intrigued me; however I am disappointed this enclosure is not widely available.

You have yourself a magnificent case, lucky you! Happy gaming, sir.

Thanks! I think another production batch is coming up soon. Company is called Lazer3D. I hope business takes off for this guy, cause he really put some serious effort into the design!

That's apparent throughout this case... I really hope to be able to snag one of these cases, I assume the price will be similar to yours but it doesn't matter as I value quality and uniqueness over pricing first. Are there any flaws with the case you can point out? Any shortcomings with the design?

Thanks for answering

I had no issues at all to speak of. Building the PC is a bit more complicated because you build the case as you add parts, but the instructions are very well thought out and it makes it easy. (Though still a good idea to read through once or twice before you start)

As far as performance, I ran an AIDA64 stress test for over an hour with the i5 overclocked to 4.8 Ghz, and Memory controller @ 3200mhz. Highest temp peaked at 79 degrees, which I am happy with.

Just take care with parts, Clearances need to be planned out ahead. (Low profile RAM, Ultra thin fans, ect) But even the designers website has a guide to help with the basics (And he lists contact info to test others)

(Side note: With the CPU at stock settings, I was able to get away with comparable temperatures even with the CPU fan completely disabled. The Airflow design is superb for a case of this size)

Thanks! I keep saying to myself I'll get some short cablemod cables for this though, think it'll really clean up the look... I may also flip the PSU to exhaust out the case, it's such Overkill that the PSU fan has never even turned on.

Anyway, Still impressed with the design, you did good work!!

I'm normally not an MSI guy, But I have to admit this one is pretty slick.

Good luck on the hunt!

Nice build! I've got LZ7 #0008. How's the Cryorig slim 140? I opted for the Prolimatech.

Honestly a bit loud for my taste, but, that's to be expected for the requirements I'm putting on a slim fan.

I'm used to Fractal SSR3s & SSR2s so... I've been spoiled in the fan acoustics department.
