I guess that would depend on the thickness of you ssd cover. From the side of the PSU shroud to the edge of the case is right at 15 mm. or just a bit over 9/16th's. Roughly about the width of 2 standard SSD's stacked on top of each other. You should be fine.
Man, this is super clean. What an elegant and gorgeous build!
This is the lcd screen I used. LCD screen
I think that the opening on the evolve X may be different. take some measurements and compare that to screen size.
Thank you, I really appreciate it.
Thank you so very much. I loved your Bumble bee build! It was because of your build that I saw the potential of this case. I cant thank you enough for that. As for the cable combs, they are Nanoxia cool force cable combs. You can get them from their web site or amazon. They only come in silver or gun metal gray. I used the 3mm ones. They have them in 4mm if you are sleeved with PET. I painted mine. If you want to change colors on them, I would suggest the silver. I used metal cast paint. It is a transparent anodized paint. Come in red, gold, blue, green, purple, orange and shadow black black chrome. The more coats, the darker the color and less transparent. You asked about the lcd screen in PM. I used a 5in monitor from amazon (largest I could fit in the opening). Picked this because of the location of the hdmi and usb2 connections. I wanted them to be facing the front of the case. I made a mounting bracket from carbon fiber so it could be mounted from behind and sit flush to the side of the case. Using a sfx psu ensured I had clearance for the lcd. Just make sure you have an available usb2 port on the mother board or internal hub (corsair commander pro) and you will loose a hdmi port on the GPU. I look forward to your future builds.
You would be correct about the thermal paste. The paste applied from zotac was very excessive and dry. The cooler was making very poor contact with the chip. Some of the thermal pads were not making contact at all. I run a very aggressive fan curve. The card is actually fairly quiet, even at max speeds. The psu shroud is well ventilated but still chokes off the card some. Using a sfx psu allowed for more air gap and minimizing cable clutter underneath better allows for air movement underneath the shroud from the bottom intake fan to reach the card. I have only used blower style cards twice. A reference 980ti and a gigabyte 1080 turbo. Both cards ran extremely hot and were annoyingly louder. The real choking point of this case would be the intake. With the side panels on, It is a fairly quiet system.
Thank you. The show is kinda dark and gloomy so I wanted it to kinda of represent that. Not to flashy but but still neat and clean with special touches that you kinda have to look for.
It is AIDA 64. You can pretty much make it look like anything you want. Just you tube AIDA 64 custom sensor panel and that should get you started.
Thank you kindly.
Thank you, waiting for season 2.
Thanks, I really appreciate it.
Sweet build. I feel your pain. My main HTPC build is in this exact case but black. Mine sits inside an enclosed cabinet. I had to get pretty creative with the cooling and modify the case some. Although, I am only running an 8700 processor. How do you like that flirc IR receiver. I use the inteset receiver. Does the flirc come with a remote. Mine is programmed into my logitech remote.
I used a FSP 500w Gold and swapped out the fan for a noctua 40mm. Super quiet, but to be honest, it hardly ever comes on. I ended up just cutting the white connectors off and setting them to length and custom sleeved them. I was concerned about airflow with the geeek modified psu with that modular plate in front.
Great little build. I had built one using the white case. Did you order the psu from Geeek?
Ok, this is just straight up cool!
I cut and sleeved the cables myself. Also replaced the connectors to black. The psu I got was not modular. I used sleeving from mod-one. I short sleeved them instead of full length. When I sleeved the cables full length, it made cable management impossible. If I had to do it again, I would use paracord instead of PET.
The 2070 mini is only 1mm bigger all the way around than the 1060 amp. 211 vs 210 and 129 vs 128 tall. Looking at my case now, I have about 3 mm of space in length and 2 mm in height left. I have had a gtx 1070 ti mini in there before. I believe the 2070 mini should fit fine. Hope you post it. Cant wait to see it.
As far as I can tell, there is only one place that you can get them. Directly from the manufacturer, Geeek. They have several new models. These are getting pretty popular so they are hard to find in stock.
Thank you kindly. The riser cable is pretty rigid and shapes well. I probably could have pulled it tighter and had the excess under the gpu. Only problem is that this is one of those builds that you practically have to disassemble the entire thing to make a single change. At the time, I had already reassembled this thing 4 times and had no intention on doing it again. As for the psu, it is ugly. That is why the psu cover. Surprisingly, with a noctua 40mm fan, it is pretty quiet. Also, these things are pretty stout. 80 plus gold rating and made for server use.
This thing is Awesome!
I know that your parts list shows it as a silverstone case, but is this a Golden Field N-2S case? If so, how is airflow in this thing. Very nice build BTW. Cable management is on point!
As someone who builds primarily mini ITX PC's, I have to tell you that your build looks great and is super clean. You definitely achieved your goal for a pretty and neat build. Great job. +1!
Thank you kindly. I didn't think anyone looked at this thing anymore.
This is EPIC, I love this thing. It looks perfect.
Thanks. Unique for sure. Definitely fun to build though.
Thank you so very much.
Thank you, I don't think this will appeal the masses though.
Thank you. Not really sure what I was thinking when I made it but I am glad it turned out well.
Thank you, I appreciate it.
Ah man, you gotta love these no nonsense, take no prisoners power builds. And make it look this good too! Easy plus 1 from me. Great build.
Good God dude! This thing is absolutely stunning. When I look at builds that become features, I always think to myself "Is that something that I would want to have". Sometimes yes, sometimes not so much. I definitely would want to have this! I am grateful to you for sharing this amazing build. Job well done.
I get what you mean, def some sacrifices made with the A30. Did not realize that the A50 had a bottom intake fan. I am sure that makes a huge difference. I have been considering upgrading the little A30, but was not sure about cooling a I7. Although, this Alpenfohn black ridge cooler looks interesting. Just recently seen it on a couple of builds here.
I tried the the zotac 1070ti mini from my metis build just to see if it would fit. It did fine. I have seen this case with a 1080ti mini in it. Should be no problem. You just cant use the hard drive front plate and need a flex psu with some grunt with dual 8 pin connectors. They do exist. Trying to find a 1080ti mini that don't cost as much as a RTX card may not exist though.
This thing is so cool! I want one. I am so liking this.
Very nice build. I did a build in a geeek A30 case. It is a tad bit smaller. I think people shy away from it due to the flex psu requirement. I am interested in what kind of temps you are getting. Especially on that 7700K. The vent cut outs on the side panel seem much smaller and restrictive than on the A30 case.
Thank you so very much
I used to think that an A1 had a lot of room inside until I saw this build. Good grief, that thing is packed in there tight! I like it though!
I actually prefer asus. Both the gigabyte and msi itx ryzen boards only have 2 fan headers. The asus has 3 controllable fan headers. I dont believe I have ever seen a white itx board. I think bios are pretty solid among all the major brand mother boards. I would say ease of use in the bios and power delivery if you plan to overclock and if on board connectors (usb, sata) meet your needs should be your concern. For a while, asus mini itx boards did not have a usb 2.0 header, only usb 3.0. Some AIO pumps or lighting controllers required it. Just do your research.
I am running an intel 7700k. If I was running a ryzen chip like a 2700 or 2700x, yeah I would use a B450i. The x470i really only has more pcie lanes which is kinda pointless in mini itx. I would still go with asus, although the gigabyte aorus wifi pro b450i looks interesting. It is a good looking board with neutral colors.
I would be a good idea, it seems that others have had the same problem. Other than that, it has been a great card.
I really like asus mother boards. All my other personal builds have them. I would go with a strix z 270i if I could find one at a decent price.
Man, you know your PC case is small when you can't even get the entire PSU to fit inside it. Jeez this thing is tiny. I love it!
No problem. I absolutely love it when people mod cases to fit their needs and make them their own. Once again, great build! I love it.
I had recently did a build in a geeek A30 case and some one had inquired about building in this configuration. I felt it was possible but had concerns about the GPU hanging upside down. Are you having any issues with the GPU in this position? Great build by the way.
Ahh.... it was you. I am glad this worked out for you.
Amazing, this is a classy and elegant build.
Thank you, I appreciate it.
