Stealth American --World's Smallest Watercooled Full PC>>>UPDATE 5 Hard drives

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
The Stealth American is the world's smallest full featured computer while maintaining a full liquid cooling system.

Case -> Silverstone Sugo 05 (Smallest full GPU case on the market)

Challenge -> The purpose of this case mod was the create a PC that had the entire functions of a full tower case. This required both 2.5 and 3.5 hard drives, a full sized GPU with a PSU to power it, adequate cooling for the CPU and GPU, while still maintaining sufficent airflow for the radiators. All the above was to be fitted into the smallest commercially available case with 2 PCI slots. (as of newegg june 2011). At 658.3 cubic inches or .38cubic feet, it is smaller than most stereo speakers, and is about the size of a gallon of milk or a 12-pack soda (or beer, whatever floats your boat).


Parts list is as follows
  1. ASRock Itx Motherboard HT
  2. Intel 2500K
  3. Full GPU (undecided, working with a 560ti)
  4. 2x 3.5 hard drives.
  5. up to 4x SSDs
  6. Full ATX Silverstone 600W PSU
  7. HWLabs 120 GTStealth
  8. Swiftech Apogee XT waterblock
  9. Swiftech 355 pump
  10. Swiftech 355x top
  11. Swiftech Microres
  12. either 1x Feser triebwerk or 2x any other 120mm fans in push pull.
  13. intergated 5.25 fan controller
  14. Bitspower of course
I hope I got everything
All while leaving space for a slim dvd/blu drive and a Silverstone OEM card reader.


Full featured means
  • pump->block->rad->res
  • Push pull for rad
  • 2SSDs in RAID
  • at least 1 3.5 for storage.
  • Disk drive and card reader
  • Full sized GPU

  12. Off with its....wing >space for larger GPU
  13. Pump this up >pump placement and instalation

  15. Bling Bling >paint and gloss
  16. finaltouches >cables lights and whatever
  17. the paparazzi flashes > photo time
Only half way done but this is the roadmap.

I could use a better name so suggestions are welcome.

Comparison to 'Mini-me'
To clarify because some people are wondering
and as I said, this is a full computer, in the smallest space possible.
And for the record I think that oliverw92's work is incredible, and I wouldnt have even thought of this if I didnt see Mini-me. I went as far as to copy the entire photos directory after the links broke on his forum posts.

Stealth A. Mini Me
Full size GPU (580) half sized
Full WC loop (pump,res,block,rad) closed block/pump loop
Push pull 2fans 1 fan-external one on magazine.
600W ATX 250W SFX
4 or 2x2.5ssd and 2x3.5hdd 2x2.5 ssd
Card reader metal feet

Link to Mini Me And for those who want to see I've included a zipped version of the pics @ socal-mods.com/modimg/minime.zip

Good looking build so far, but on the world's smallest water cooled rig, how does it compare in size to mini-me?

mini-me is a lot smaller, and fits a fully functioning graphics card and all the bits and pieces. And its 20x20x20 cm, so Im afraid it's much smaller too. So this wont be the smallest watercooled PC by any means. Still a nice looking build so far.
