[Build Log] Silverstone ML07|i7-6700k|GTX970|DDR4 3600|Asus Pro Gaming ITX

Thread Starter 

Hey guys! It's that time again! Super excited for what I have coming down the pipe on this one. So its 2016 and I feel its almost wrong having a desktop that takes up 1/3 of my desk... I really want something in a mini form factor while giving me all the gaming eye candy I want... What better build to do than the Silverstone ML07B!

Parts:

Case: Silverstone ML07B
PSU: Silverstone 450w gold fully modular SFX
CPU: i7-6700k - Future delid canididate
Motherboard: Asus Pro Gaming Z170i ITX
GPU: Asus Strix GTX970
CPU Cooler: Silverstone NT06-Pro
SSD: SanDisk X400 512GB m.2
Thermal Paste(s): Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra!!!!! (have)

Parts: Warning: Part Pictures (Click to show)

Silverstone NT06-Pro CPU Cooler
Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2
i5-2500k

ASRock Z77E-ITX
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90
Samsung 830 Series SSD 64GB (boot drive)



I'm also planning on sleeving what I can and cutting down the wires so that my build is as clean as possible. I also hope to add some intake fans near the i/o shield above the motherboard where the vents are so I'm pushing in cool air while my CPU cooler is blowing out the hot air. Lastly, pictures will be with a DSLR this time around...no normal iphone pictures for this build! Forgot to mention. I'll be using CLU on the CPU AND GPU!!!! Now the CPU will be super easy to do but the GPU poses a little more problematic for the CLU. The cooler of the Asus Strix is a direct heatpipe surrounded with aluminum. The copper heatpipes are the only surfaces that make contact with the GPU die, I'm going to use fingernail polish to coat the aluminum around the heatsink surface and also fill the cracks between the heatpipes to prevent any running of the CLU...

LOTS more to come!

Too big. I want something much smaller. Since I'll have some cash, figured this would be a great new build!

Few test shots of the cooler:


I had to dig it out of storage...

Like I said earlier, I'll be painting a layer of nail polish around the gaps of the heatpipes that do not touch the GPU die and also a layer over the aluminum to protect it from the CLU. I'll also coat the transistors on the GPU die with nail polish to prevent anything from conducting.

Update:

I decided there's no reason why I should wait to put the air cooler back on the GPU and use CLU. A little nail polish and some electrical tape and its all set to go. I'm really hoping the electrical tape will hold up...

Prep and cleaning:







CLU on Cooler/Die:



Quick test and results: Quite staggering!


I'm hoping to keep the GPU under 60C in my SFF build once I get the case!

CLU is conductive so you need to be sure it doesn't make contact with the PCB. The nail polish and tape make a barrier.
