Hi, welcome to my build log. I have been wanting to build a small form factor system for a while and when I saw the new EVGA Hadron my heart skipped a beat. My original plan was to build a red and black themed RoG inspired case and then I saw the MDPC #044. The MDPC #044 was the cleanest and classiest build I've ever seen in my life. The release of ASUS gold themed mother board, and EK gold cpu blocks definitely helped my decision. I took the plunge to build a mini MDPC #044 and bought all the parts needed.
My main goal is to get as close as possible(looks wise) to the MDPC #044 on a SFF case.
Things I'm aware of:
I am aware that a slim 240mm is not enough to cool a GPU and CPU.
I am aware that the slim Slipstreams is not an ideal fan to cool the radiators.
i7- 4770k (might delid if the temps would be too high)
Drive cage removed! That hard drive cage took a lot of space.
11/01/2013 - Went to home depot to buy some plexi glass and found out that they have a smoked one. What a pain in the butt to cut plexi glass with the plastic cutter! I failed a couple of times but eventually got one piece that I could use.
