So as predicted the after-market Gigabyte AMD RX 480 is one of the shortest of all the manufacturers. It looks like it is going to be 232mm long - this should fit fairly comfortably I'd say. Any thoughts?

Or should I hang out until they EVENTUALLY do an ITX edition (if they do?). Just FYI if you're not a fan of AMD you're in luck, the NVidia 1060 has just been released an I've seen at least EVGA already do a tiny version. I can't find a length for it online but by the photo's it looks like it is around the 170mm mark.

232mm will fit no problem, the g1 r9 380 that's in mine is ~1cm shorter, and I still have plenty of room. If you do go for it, the backplate is a nice bonus.

Personally, if I were building right now, I wouldn't buy a new model gpu. I'd buy an inexpensive previous generation model and wait for some better options with the new gpu generation. Or if I were dead set on the 480, I'd water cool. EK just released a full cover waterblock and backplate for the 480.

I can see where you're coming from, but the crazy thing is that AMD 200 & 300 series cards and even older on the second hand market (where I am) are barely 15% cheaper then they were at new, and almost all AMD 29x or 39x cards are more expensive then a brand new 480. I think people are dreaming trying to get this much but the 2nd hand parts market really isn't good here for any bargains.

I did actually look at getting an ITX AMD card of some sort (even the 290 if I couldn't get the 390) but it's +$100 on what the current 480's are.

Nice. I like how you placed the fan grill. Noticed you have aftermarket case feet as well.

Nice Build!
I'm gathering parts for my watercooled Metis soon smile.gif
I see you using the Alphacool Eisberg. How do find the noise?

What are your temps like?
post #347 of 818
Hello @fingertoes.
The noise of the Eisberg it´s high in 12v connector, but in the 7v connector the noise it´s low.
The temps, now in Spain, 26º-27º in home, are arround 35 idle and 60º in full the CPU and similar in GPU.

Off topic, almost.

Those temps are not bad at all.
Your build is sweet!
I ordered the New Alphacool Eisbaer from Modmymods, and i will be installing 2 x 120mm radiators up top as well.
Plan to overclock an i3 6100 and GTX 970 for a fun build.
The case is definitely a challenge to build in.

I commend you thumb.gif
