[ Build Log ] Jonsbo UMX1 !!!COMPLETED!!!

post #1 of 99
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to share my build. I couldn't find another UMX1 build log. And that's probably because no one wants to pay to import a small SFF case from China. If there are suggestions, I'll listen but at this point I currently think I have everything planned out the way I want it. Minimal power use for the most power I can get.

The case: Jonsbo UMX1

Straight from China. I was hoping Rosewill would carry it, but they only have the MX2 which is too big for me. I already have a mid tower ATX which I would like to get rid of.

The goods:
Mobo: ASRock Z87E-ITX
CPU: Intel i7-4770K
Power: Silverstone 450W SFX
GFX: EVGA 750 Superclocked
HD OS: Samsung Evo 500GB mSATA
HD storage: 2x Seagate 3TB 7200rpm
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP 16GB
1x Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12
1x Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro 80mm
Swiftech 8-way PWM fan controller

Watercooling:
Swiftech MCP655 Variable Speed with G1/4 modded top
Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 40 Clear
Alphacool Nexxos ST30 240
EK Supremacy CPU Nickel Clean
EK VGA Supremacy Bridge
2x Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12
Koolance fittings and QD3 quick disconnects





How am I going to fit all of this?! Some 3D printing of mounts and a dremel. And this will be a tight fit. I spec'd as much low profile equipment as I could.

The plan is to locate the power supply in the top near the top vent and 3D print a mount and duct to keep it in place and keep the hot air out of the case. The 120mm top mounted fan will help pull air from the PSU (at least that's the thought). Then a 3D printed hard drive enclosure underneath the PSU. Luckily there are a few mounts I may be able to use.

The case isn't meant for an expansion card. I'll have to dremel the aluminum panel to accept the dual slotted PCI mount.

Room for a 240 radiator?! I needed to use slim radiators and slim fans. It was either the Alphacool ST30 or Black Ice GT. The ST30 won because it was cheaper, performed better with low RPM fans, and the barb locations looks like it will clear some components I can't modify (the front panel PCB). I will also need to cut out the bottom tray so the fans can sit 15MM lower for clearance issues. But wait, why watercool a lowly GTX 750? More clearance for the radiator. If I didn't, I would have the GPU fan sitting on top of the radiator. I had measured everything out and it seems like I can put a D5 mounted to the rear case with a small reservoir attached to the top. I'll have to be using lots of 45/90 degree elbows to make this work. It looks like it will clear the CPU waterblock, but I will find out when I get the watercooling parts.

That... Looks like a really nice case... However what's the comp for? The 750 is actually a pretty beast card, sad you can't fit a bigger card in there, but it's on par with the 6970/7850. Can't believe I used to own a pair of 6950s and this card is a fraction of that size.

Its a replacement for my current tower which is for everything. Use it for photoshop, lightroom, 3d modeling, Autocad, and an occasional round of SC2.

Ah then it seems like you're good to go thumb.gif

Hope so!

And man watercooling is so expensive! I remember when I had my Athlon XP on a DangerDen system and it was only half the cost. Sheesh!

It's weird seeing the exact same thread/posts on two different forums.

Nice looking case, but how do you get a decent airflow with this thing ?

Good question! And I'm not sure. Well its going to be better than stock at the very least. Stock is only 1x120mm top exhaust.

I plan to put in 2x120mm intake at the bottom. 1x120mm top exhaust and 1x80mm rear exhaust. Its an open case but it'll crammed. I'll need to mod the power cables to length so I don't have excess laying around blocking air.

I'm hoping to get my watercooling parts by Tuesday. But I got some goodies today!

Now I can test the components I bought to make sure everything works!


So thin! Surprisingly the slim fan pushes way more air than the 120mm case fan next to it, but it was slightly noisier. Will need to try it on PWM instead of full power and see how that works.


I decided to buy the Ballistic Tactical because it was $5 more than the sport but it came with a black PCB! I didn't want the green PCB on the sport to muck my black and silver color scheme up. And off comes the heat spreaders...

Yeah... that's very low profile.

Once I get all the equipment in, I can start modeling the parts I need and order my sleeving tools. I need to cut the PSU cables to length and sleeve them.
