Club for those with beastly mATX/ITX rigs. - Page 120

post #1191 of 13149
i will finally post here after lurking for awhile.

My first comp i built 3 yrs ago was mATX and i have just never justified going full.

I finally now am happy with the case i have put this comp in, and it came out about as best as i could make it.

It is a thermaltake case, and measures 16x14x7.75 in. i included pics of it next to my dusty xbox360 for size comparison and my keyboard and 25in monitor.

This is the smallest tower case i have built in, and it is about as small as i could stand. i couldn't do wire management behind the tray cause there was maybe 1/4in back there ;(.





Specs:
Phenom II x4 955 BE
Gigabyte 785g mATX mobo
4gb Corsair ddr3 1600
Mugen II Rev. B
Gtx 460
2 hdd (1tb black, and 1.5tb green)
1 Sunbeamtech 4fan controller
no ODD, have external and i rarely use it

anyways temps so far are nice, and i finally have the perfect size case for lugging around.

thats a 5970 yeah? what cpu cooling you gonna put in that ?
Yep it is the 5970 4gb Toxic. I'm going to have to modify the window on the case with some washers and mesh because the 3 slot cooler of the card causes it to stick out 3mm into the window slot.

Prolly going to run an h70 if it will fit, if not then an H50. I had the h50 on it when it was in the sg05 case. It had an msi hawk as the vid then.

I love the itx boards. I'm trying to source a 95w 6core to drop in the asus itx board.

Specs:
i7 860
dfi lan party mobo
sg07 case w/ 600w psu
5970 toxic 4gb
4gb soon to be 8gb of corsair xms3 7-7-7-20 ddr3 1600
2 x mushkin callisto deluxe ssd's in raid 0
600gb wd raptor as games, and spill over drive.
wd scorpio 640gb for storage.

the x6 is another build using asus amd itx board. MIght as well put the best amd chip in the board that I can. The sg07 is getting the i7 860, with the dfi lanparty board.

The x6 will go in the sg05 with the asus board 4gb mushkin so-dimm ddr3 and a 5770 hawk or maybe a single pin geforce of equivalency.

Thought i'd post here too

It's a SG05, with a power cpu in it.

- Gigabyte H55N-USB3
- i7 875k (holy cow fast)
- axp 140 heatsink, with a 100m slim fan. Waiting on an imported scyhe kyon (sp), which is 120 and should cool better
- 4 gig Ram
- 1tb Samsung spinpoint F3

It didn't end up being as useful as I thought for me - I got it for the USB3 so I could do raw hdmi video capture with it (intensity Shuttle), But the usb3's in all 1156 mitix boards are crap, with them using gen 1 pcie lanes so you are crippled to half max speed. Of course, the shuttle usb3 needs full speed, so That got rid of that purpose for it. Doh!

I had a lot of fun building this, with the Zotac H55itx CE board originally for it was faulty. Bad Zotac. In hindsite, the underside of it is poor for mounting heatsinks too, so blah.

If you turn on USB3.0 "Turbo" in the BIOS, the USB3.0 chip will use a PCIe2.0 lane connected directly to the CPU and alleviate the bottleneck. I wrote an article about it, comparing it to an Asus board which uses a PLX chip to fix the bottleneck:
