I've wanted to build a tiny portable desktop for so long! Inspired by Linus' video. It's so cool and exciting how small and light it is and have a full phat desktop experience with something like it.
The case doesn't include instructions of any kind so took a minute to figure out a few things. And the only fully modular flex PSU I could find is the geeek custom one from Taiwan. But that one's more expensive once it is kitted out + shipping and whatnot. So I figured I just get the SilverStone one, cut the SATA and Molex power cables and swap out the fan with a Noctua or Noiseblocker 'cause MY GOD the fan is loud!
Using a 6-pin female to 8-pin male PCIe power connector for the GTX 1660. No issues so far.
Anyway, some quick stats: Played DooM 2016 at 1440p on Ultra settings for about 20 minutes. FPS averaged at 100+- CPU temp's high was 63 c GPU temp's high was 82 c.
Pictures are next to an NZXT S340 Elite and a tissue box for scale. I forgot to take pictures of before/internals. Might take a couple later.
So finally got around to this. I did cut the SATA and Molex cables off the PSU. Made closing the case SO much easier! And I replaced the fan with a Noctua A4X10 FLX and it is virtually silent. I can't believe it but the build is completely silent at idle! When playing big 3D games the GPU fan ramps up a bit but it isn't that loud and falls more in the "white noise" territory than it does "annoying". Very satisfied with this!
Considering getting one of those portable USB-powered displays and a controller and having a little on-the-go machine.
Swapped out the CPU cooler fan for a Chromax version of it with white rubber corners. Fits the build and matches the GPU on the other side a lot better than Noctua's standard brown/beige combo :P
