Semi Custom ITX Case (A Build Log)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So a few days ago I set out to make the smallest ITX case possible that still would meet my requirements of fitting a low profile 7750.

Me and my co-worker found an old M-ATX case laying around in storage at the PC shop we work at and decided to see what we could do with it.



This is what a few hours with a dremel and some metal bending got us. I will be back in a few to update the thread with the proposed specs and more pics. thumb.gif

Proposed specs:
AMD A10-6700
Saphire 7750 low profile
Gigabyte F2A85XN-Wifi FM2 ITX
1 SSD and a 1TB HDD
120mm case fan
160 watt pico PSU

That's cutting it really fine...16watts to spare... What about a SFX PSU? They come in 300 and 450w and they don't take up a ton of space...

Thanks for the answer,. I have been doing some research and the Pico will work just fine. the aim of this project is to make the smallest PC possible while still running Dota 2 maxed at a decent frame rate, so thats why I chose the small PSU
