We have no really structure or leader. There isn't a list of members. It's a BA thread of MATX&mITX enthusiasts.
Fixed that for ya. wink.gif

Pretty much. We come here to discuss our builds and ask each other questions. It is more like a long term chat room with a specific topic really. And it is perfect that way.

The Inwin Dragon Slayer.

interesting. didn't know the dragon slayer is a 5 slot case. overall the case can use better design like using 200mm fan instead of 140mm fan intake. the mesh side panel is abit tacky. would have done better with just a window or a window + single 140mm fan over the gpu's. interesting tho. if InWin continue with their performance focused designs, they may become another fractal design that services the segment of the market left behind by the more pricy lian li and silverstone. i remember correctly, the InWin buc actually did VERY well against other cases of similar size in both thermal and acoustical performance.

definitely a company worth keeping my eyes on from now on.

in order for this to be a club, certain parameter has to be established such as what qualifies as a "beastly" rig. a beastly rig 3 years ago can qualify as a clunker today in this form factor:D i think it would be good if someone decides to go through and catagorize each build in terms of mATX or ITX, but beyond that, i cant really say anything "disqualifies" a well built machine even if the numbers aren't too impressive.

for example, an OC unlocked Llano running Xfire wouldn't have very good numbers compared with someone running a 2600k+7970, but if it was well built i'd still consider it a beastly ITX build.

so the only way to categorize this "club" would be by form factor and the case manufacture. might be able to break that down into air or liquid cooling, but this category will definitely be dominated by air cooling due to size constriction.

Thanks. That's what I meant.

reading this thread has given me the bug to build a beastly micro ATX system.

This is the case I'll be using, when it comes out.

Mayhem, do you have a link to that case? And does it come in an ATX version?

they call it the Xigmatek Gigas and there's a review of it on Hardware Heaven.

http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1357/pg1/xigmatek-gigas-case-review-introduction.html

As for an ATX version of it; no. It's straight-up Micro-ATX/Mini-ITX

Pretty much I noticed how many people who decided to build a pc into a NES went with an Intel Atom and that bothered me. So I figured I should put a Core i5 inside mine so emulation of various consoles (including the Wii) would run much better. Obviously heat dissipation was an issue however I managed to solve this to a degree as temperatures have gone down from 90+ degrees C with the initial build even when the system was not at full load.

Here's a video I made reviewing the system: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrJgDV1GQJM[/ame]

And here's a video displaying it's capabilities for playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl via Dolphin 2.0: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQMEdpr2t-c&feature=related[/ame]

There's this one I built. Not exactly extreme like the other builds though the case was a bit of a limitation.
