[Build Log] Antec ISK 110: Tinier than Tiny - Page 5

I built an AMD based machine with this case using the following parts:
Case: Antec ISK 110 with 80W power supply (80W board + 90W adapter)
CPU: A8-3870K
Mem: 1.35V Samsung 2x 4GB
Mobo: Asus F1A75-I Deluxe
SSD: Kingston SSDNow V200 64GB
CPU Cooler: Scythe Kozuti

The power supply (actually 80W on the board with a 90W power adapter--tricky!) wasn't enough to handle stock voltages, so I underclocked and undervolted it to 2GHz and -0.36250v offset.

I also have another machine with an i5-3570k (in a Silverstone SG06) with no GPU. The underclocked A8-3870K beats the i5 in Devil May Cry by a large margin for FPS.

You have to be careful here as some bioses run the APU at load during post and in the bios. Numerous Asrock boards do this, including their A75 chipset mini-itx and matx boards. That 160W reading (depending on what else you're running) sounds like load to me. I would check load figures within the OS to compare.

Quick update. After about 5 months, the system has been running great on the stock 80W PSU. Absolutely no instability of any kind.

Currently running 1 SSD, 1 internal hard drive, and 1 USB 3.0 hard drive on the system. The USB hard drive does not use an external power connector, so it's also getting power from the PSU.

Aww these systems are great. I'll definitely keep this in mind next time I build a system.

Something that would make the internals neater would be using all-black cables where possible, such as SATA cables. Can also use black electrical tape over PSU cables.

Love the modded side panel with the Scythe fan. Very professional looking.

I also see some 200-watt Pico PSUs, like this for instance:

i guess you can always swap the cables for ones with black insulation/ sleeve them / paint them

200w is great but over kill for the ISK when they cant fit a GPU

Help on building one like this...

Guys planning on building one like this. My question is which casing beside this, antek isk 110 that has vesa mounting on a back of a monitor , has enough power to supply a 3rd gen i7 processor and 2 2.5 hdd's?

Sorry to have ask here and not start a new thread..

Besides the casing (SFF), I would like to ask for a motherboard..which mini itx is the best for money ? I only have searched from gigabyte one, the z77 wifi?


Thanks
Christian
post #49 of 124
hmm have a look at the M350 case from minibox though its recommended that you opt for the low voltage version of the i7

as for boards i'd prefer asrock ones unless you need dual nic which any USB3 to RJ45 would do. btw what is this build for?
post #50 of 124
Thanks @ akromatic,

I will have a look at this M350. What I7 3rd gen has low voltage? thus this low voltage will have any effect in performance on the cpu?

Which asrock model do you like?

This build will be just for photo editing / designing (PS CS6, Illustrator, Lightroom)

Thanks
Christian..
