Stay tuned -- with DreamHack Austin only a couple months away, we're planning a few SFF/"portable LAN" builds to get ready.

Awesome, oh and are any of you going to GDC? I've been invited to the capsaicin and cream event and would be down to provide you guys with coverage (or just wear my PCPP t-shirt).

Ah, alright. I haven't been before, so it sounds interesting.

Yeah. Hopefully you'll enjoy it! I kind of regret not taking advantage of when it used to be held in Austin a few years back to at least check it out first hand.

When it's a Ryzen CPU & board and Vega GPU in this same case, call me. Until then... zzzz....

Please can you save 1 cent on this, it would be so satisfying! Other than that I am stoked to watch this, should be able to as I have the next few days off, but I need to check what I should be doing, UK timezone here!

Thanks guys! I always look forward to your build guides. They are quality material. I was a little uncertain since you didn't release one for over a month. But all is good, thanks! = ]

Why don't you try the 'tiny' GTX1080 that was introduced at CES? Or else the 1080 ti? Oooh with Ryzen Plz plz plz.

  • 32 months ago
  • 1 point

Thats an excellent build! But why did you opt for a FE for the 1070? Thats the only thing I would had chosen differently.

  • 32 months ago
  • 1 point

It's not the FE that was the driving force, rather the blower/reference cooling design to help with the limited airflow options of the ITX case. And while the NF-A14 case fan we're using moves a lot of air, we wanted a reference card design to ensure the GPU wasn't adding its heat into the case when it could be pushing it out the back.

Well, you know.. 2PM is more of an early afternoon snack time than lunch. ;)

True.. which makes it rather amazing that we've not all been caught taking a post-lunch nap when the cameras start rolling.

I believe it actually was proposed when we were brainstorming this build, but I don't recall why we moved off of it. Could be we had trouble finding either the case or GPU in stock at the time we ordered the components.

We're pretty happy with the case.. though maybe we'll snatch borrow a GTX 1080 out of one of our other builds before taking it to the BYOC... We'll see how the benchmarks come out. ;)

Aww, man... I wanted to see a build in the TU100B with a GIGABYTE 1070 ITX OC.

I would like to get my hands on the TU110 but its only available in china. They fixed the ventilation problem with the GPU that you have to mod and drill the bottom panel to install fan.

I had a pen-pal who lived in China back in the fourth grade... Do you think he'd respond? XD

Here is a website selling the case and they ship to the US but they are asking a premium for the case.
