Description

Inwin sent us their 901 Mini-ITX case and Classic Series 750W PSU just in time for Dreamhack. You can watch the live stream archive to see how it came together and the Cable Management Time Lapse to see how we cleaned things up after the build.

A big thanks to Inwin for providing the case and power supply!

A couple of additional notes: During the live stream a pin for the cable extension was actually loose, after the stream, we were able to simply push the pin back into place. Also after the build, EVGA released an optional 11GHz BIOS Update for our GPU, which we flashed onto our card for the benchmarks.

And now, onto some benchmarks:

This is one pretty build.

How's the SSD, is it comparable to the 960 evo?

Dying for the day that pcpartpicker staff build a custom watercooled pc!

I'm definitely going to take some inspiration from this. You got my kind of taste.

@maclamby Quick question hopefully you can remember, but the CRYORIG C1 in that orientation on the z270-I (can't tell from pictures) does it support taller ram than the LPX?

I believe it would, but it would depend on how thick the heat spreaders are - if they are too thick you might bump up against the heatpipes.

Wow! Thanks for letting me know, in the end I got some really well priced LPX for now and once I receive the parts I'll get a better idea if dominator plats will fit (since they are pretty thick).

Thanks for the great work, this build helped me sort out a lot of unanswered compatibility questions with the C1 orientation and the asus board.
