The most extreme mini-ITX gaming rig you've ever seen - MAX11Lv3 - Page 3

post #21 of 70
WOW...

over and over again.
seriously, never cease to amaze me...

the motherboard flip is brilliant.

not extreme enough, need a 590GTX in there or some form of multiGPU

im waiting for someone with pockets deep enough and insane enough to consider something with 12 cores and a dual GPU SFF

I agree,georgous.+ rep for rig building ability. I am in the market for a mATX board (this is what made me view this thread0 now I am very glad I did.

some feedback:

noticing from your buildlog that you did, indeed put a lot of effort into beautifying the block in addition to the fact that the feet are rather undesirable,
perhaps you should suggest to norbert that he remove the feet from "the bottom" altogether, and use smaller ones to have the rig on, either its side or completely upside down (you could maybe flip the optical drive for this?)

it would help with aesthetics and conserve more space, considering that you arent even using the current "top" and "right" sides of the case for any intake, anyway (which is actually where the throttling could be helped by using a small fan to pass air to the vrm's).

loving the work.
again: brilliantly laid out.

Excellent work Miah! Your ideas are clever and creative. Especially using the PSU to vent half the watercooled heat out of the case immediately. I'm sure the other fan is plenty to move the remaining 7-8? litres despite the wires. Those cases are great for positive pressure solutions. Although I had my doubts at first reading the work log. You seemed to cut away so much of the SG06 frame that I wondered, why use the case at all? But seeing the final pictures, you've achieved a very subtle build. Anyone who knows the SG06 would do a double take but wouldn't immediately see all the things that are going on there.

Only one question: why no filter for the radiator? Since all the air is entering there, you could even just use some kind of loose disposable sheets like in a vacuum cleaner.

One last question, how hot are the air coming from the radiator? I see that you blow some of it to the PSU as exhaust. Hot air does decrease PSU efficiency.

IMO...that would NOT be SFF....not even close. rolleyes.gif

Thanks man, FYI - this is mini-ITX....quite a bit smaller than mATX wink.gif

Interesting idea about flipping the orientation, but the res would need to be rotated accordingly.
I doubt any more fans would be added, but I'd probably put some little copper heatsinks on the VRMs wink.gif

Thanks smile.gif I like the facts it looks like only a slightly modded SG06...total sleeper biggrin.gif
The system will be used in a very low dust enviornment, so no filter is needed.

Yes, hot air will lower PSU effeciency, but the increase in heat is not significant in this system. With the GPU at full load, the rad is getting much warmer and the PSU heats up....but then it ramps up its own fan and it is enough to overcome the problem.....it works wink.gif

I did the labor for free (this is my hobby after all), so he only paid for parts....around $2600.

yeah, some C1's would probably be a good idea.
the zotac board would have probably been more suitable for this build considering that it already has a gigantic heatsink for that very purpose.

as for reservoirs, I hadn't thought about that:
i'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to water cooling,
would it still function on its side? :l
upside down, is a little out of the question now, im assuming, due to space for the tubes to protrude upward if the res were to be oriented in such a fashion, considering the sheer girth of the tubing you went with.
