You could get a 1U and mod it by either adding in new 40mm fans that are quieter (and run the system hotter) or you could add a larger 80 or 120mm fan to the side and cut a hole in the side of the new PSU. You'd void the warranty but it would keep it quieter.

I'd talk to EVGA about just RMAing the PSU. They are good guys and shouldn't be too strict on that.

Yeah that could be another possiblity, EVGA have the best customer support IMO.

When I read the volume numbers on the front of the thread, I usually try to picture that volume on my desk. And to me, that is the most important thing; how much space does it take up on my desk? To me, I wouldn't take into account things like power bricks, because they will be on the floor, tucked away, and I will never notice it!

Of course, this is slightly less applicable if you put your sff system on the floor!thumb.gif

I think that's viable. It always depends on your situation, but footprint is pretty important in my eyes. Especially as most SFF cases seem to be too small to be put under the desk.

Also, I would like to get added to the club! I've modded a LianLi PC-Q12 to fit a GTX970 and a FlexATX PSU:





The build log can be found in my signature or HERE.

There's still some things to be done to make this my primary PC (HDD + more RAM), but it is already working pretty nicely, and has a volume of stunning 6.7L biggrin.gif

Actually, Yes! Update!

1. The LiHeat 250mm right angle PCIE 3.0 riser arrived last week and it was installed.





Because the riser touches the backside of the GPU and LiHeat indicated that it was slightly conductive, I did add vinyl. LiHeat's riser is less bendy/flexible than a DIY tinfoil tape/vinyl riser, but it took all the punishment I gave it. I have some pretty severe bends. It's working flawlessly. LiHeat generously shipped me three, so I have two extras stateside for those that might need them. Mert? iFreilicht?


2. Installed a Deep Silence 60mm NDS60-2000 - Link - to help with GPU exhaust. It's highlighted upper right.



I also realized I could fit a 60mm x10mm fan in the space below the Deep Silence. I tried the MC600's included maglev 60mm fan. It moved good air, but was too loud (whine). Also it only had had 2-pin connector. So...

3. Ordered more fans which I will test.
A. GPU - Yate-Loon D12SM-12C - Link
B. GPU - Deep Cool 120GS - Link
C. GPU Exhaust - Evercool EC6010M12CA 60mm x 10mm - Link

I'm especially excited about the Deep Cool 120GS. Never heard of it before. But it's made as a heatsink fan.



Fan B, the Yate Loon D12SM-12C is also no slouch. It's an upgrade from my current Yate Loon D12SL-12C at the expense of noise. But we can take it. Right now, the rig is pleasantly silent.

4. Added magnetic fan filters to the top.




Banana for scale.

Crisis averted guys, it came back to life. I'm guessing a wire wiggled loose or something, although bugger me if I can tell you which one. Hopefully it was just being difficult and will behave now.

Hi guys,

My first real post here, been mostly a lurker in the watercooling, casemodding and the SFF parts.
I'm working on a idea for a tiny personal system, but I would also like to gauge if you guys would be interested in it.

I can't tell too much about it yet , but here are the key specs I've got:
Size wil be under 3 liters
CPU: Up to 4790K (88W TDP supported)
GPU: GTX970 ITX version
watercooled CPU and full cover block on GPU
external power brick.

Obviously it is going to be a complete custom design but if there is interest in it I might product a small batch of systems for people to purchase.
Still working on it but will be posting more information as I get closer to the final design.

Sounds really interesting... routing the tubes and giving the radiator enough breathing room to do it's job is going to be fun with a 3L case. Anxious to see what you come up with. thumb.gif

There will be 2 pieces of tubing is the system, with a total length of 5cm, everything is router internally. Also the Radiator is sandwiched. So [Case Bottom] --> [Radiator] --> [Fan] --> [Case Top].

That's what I thought, so the custom waterblock you'll be making is a single one for both the CPU and the GPU?
And where will the pump go?

In my original idea that is what I wanted, but I would need a flexible riser which would be $$$. Also the actual height of the case is dictated by the Radiator+Fan combo, this means that combining the GPU and CPU doesn't give me a reduction in size.

He's probably using one of those rad/res/pump all in ones.
