Sure, there will be bickering about rules. Making subcategories should please some folks.
Case - OEM / Modded / Scratch
GPU - Integrated / Discrete
Cooling - air / water
PSU - Internal / Powerbrick
This community has had inspired some wildly successful projects and powerful uSFF systems.
People create amazing rigs with the BitFenix Prodigy, and the Silverstone Raven. They should be recognized. Currently, DonDan is crafiting what looks like the next NCASE with his A4. For modders, iFrielicts project Black managed to stuff a i7 a GTX 970, and a full PSU into a 6 liter case. Nobody else has done that! This man was first! Doesn't he deserve some internet points for his internet trophy-case?
Thanks, but it's iFreilicht
Anyway, I have to agree with Reindoonicorn, it is nothing but 970s right now. Next to the A4, with case projects like the LRPC
by NCASE or the unnamed case
by SaperPL, this thread will get boring quite fast, as people will be able to put 980s into cases not much larger than the PC-Q12. I, too, started a case project
that fits a 280mm GPU into a 6L package. With these cases that thread would become a 980 overclocking contest before anything.
I like this thread because there is so much variety, and people have different expectations in their rigs. Sure, some of us want stellar gaming performance, but others want the quietest PC possible, and I don't see a Sone/Litre taking off anytime soon
Also there will probably be a lot of people complaining.
That said, if you want to do that kind of leaderboard, go ahead. Maybe you can raise awareness for how powerful small systems really can be, and I'll surely subscribe.
