Lone Industries L2 Re-Build: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Brick

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Moving the guts of my Fractal Node 304 to a real mini-ITX case, the L1

Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe
CPU: Intel3770K mildly OC'd at 4.1GHz
RAM: G.SKill Ripjaws 2x8GB
SSD: Samsung 840 256G & 128G
Cooler: Thermalright AXP100 with Prolimatech Ultra sleek 140 PWM
Case fans: 2x Noiseblocker 80mm PWM
Z3-ATX-200 200W 16V-24V input
Dell 330W 19V power brick

EDIT: Needed to add a low noise adapter to the Noiseblockers, box is dead quiet now

The size difference, just about the same height



Trimmed the PSU cord, fans installed



Mobo transferred



Drives and fans connected



Time to power this little beast up!



Got a bunch of my desk back!

The case is so small! Almost the size of your speakers! Awesome build!

Would it be possible to do a APU build in one of those?

Love the case. Will you be putting a graphics card into it? I think the only thing I'd want the case to have is maybe some front USB3 ports; but as it is, I like it a lot. Very clean.

No graphics card for now just the TV card, don't really do any gaming so the built-in HD4000 is quite enough. There's some interesting 750 cards coming out and Lone Industries is considering putting a case out that's one expansion slot taller so it will take a wider low profile card like Galaxy version. If you'd like to join the conversation here's a link. Might be able to use a flex ATX with that change also.

Here's an updated pic with the TV card, had to loosen some frame screws up to get it in.

Try to do that tonight, maybe do a Prime95 run. In my Node with this setup it kept it to high 70s low 80's C, but the pico PSU is like a mini heater in there, they are all made to run hot so I think it would limit out under the torture test. This is a shot from FanXpert just on the internet, if I fire up hoops on TV it seems to settle out at about 38C. Ambient is 25C ish pretty much all the time here in San Diego. For my normal usage cooling should be quite sufficient.

Nice build, I love my L1. I got a white one for my 7850k machine, works great as an HTPC. What TV tuner card do you use? I've been wanting to add one to mine as well.

It's a Diamond ATI HD 750, seems to work pretty well but reviews were all over the place. There wasn't any mention but there's also a built-in FM tuner as well.
