There's been so much discussion about this, and as this is your club, you get to decide upon this no matter what.
Personally, I feel like the volume, protrusions excluded, should be what counts.

To me, the important part about the volume metric is to somewhat realistically quantify how portable a system is, so all cases get their volume assigned by the smallest enclosing trivial solid, (pyramid, cylinder, box, sphere) and protrusions like case feet or PCIe retention brackets are excluded.

After all this time, I finally put the geeekmax case to use. Was waiting on the corsair sfx and now I just have to leak test then put in some dye. I changed the front panel for a more physical button since I hated the stock power buttons.

I'd really like to get one to mess around with. Any info would be appreciated.

Haven't seen it on any english sites but I believe it's also available in Europe, I remember seeing some french sites that had it (not Cowcotland).

I just finished my SFF build

EVGA Hadron Hydro, Full custom watercooling. i5-4690k @ 4.6GHz, 2 R9 Nanos @ 1050 core and 550 mem + 10% power limit, Samsung 840 Pro SSD, Silverston SX600-G psu, Gigabyte Z97 mATX board. Running the bottom radiator passive and the top radiator with 120mm Yate Loon 1200rpm fans. CPU at load is staying around 50-55C and the GPUs are staying around 55-60C. Alot better than stock where the GPUs were running at 85C at the thermal limit lol.

Any way to get a 750 TI in this bad boy?

Try as I might, I can't figure out a way to beat the TU100 in portability. frown.gif

SilverStone Milo ML06-E has the PSU on the rear left and the motherboard on the right thus you could drop in a low profile GTX 750 Ti.
It costs at least EUR 30.- more than the ML05, though.

Alright, I wanted to build a super small rig and as it so happened, the person who commissioned me to build a computer agreed.

Rig Specs:
CPU: i7-6700k
MB: Z170N Gaming 5
RAM: 2x4GB DDR4 2666
GPU: XFX R9-Fury Triple dissipation
SSD1: 250GB 850 Evo M.2
SSD2: 256GB 830
HDD1: 500GB Toshiba thing
PSU: Silverstone SFX 600w Gold
Fans: Pair of Silverstone slim fans
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-L9i
Case: Fractal Design Node 202

Pics! (Click to show)

Awww, look at the widdle baby rig. tongue.gif And yes I did sound foam it.

Sucker somehow stays silent even under Furmark load with the GPU topping at 81C and 44% fan speed. I feel the Noctua may not be enough or is simply positioned poorly to be made the most of, without a dedicated intake fan it doesn't really have any direction. Either way, it doesn't throttle in Prime, so that's good.

As a side note, the XFX Fury does not actually fit in the 202 as the 202's case cant not accomidate more than 2 slots; the XFX is 2.5. So I bent it. Problem solved. It is also JUST BARELY able to fit; you'll see in the pictures.

Built in worse if I'm honest. It's a dense little bugger, I'll give it that.

There's the NF-A9 PWM by Noctua, a 92mm fan with the same color scheme but 25mm height i/o the normal 14mm NF-A9x14 PWM. Might help you. On the other hand: is that the CM HAF Stacker in the background? Holy cow, that's ginourmus compared to the Node.

Edit: added PWM remark to NF-A9

Got a bargain today. i7 2600, matx h61 mobo, 8Gb ddr3 RAM, plus BD/ODD ETC... $100 AUD$
Swapped the i5 2500 in htpc for i7 2600, Upgraded from 4Gb to 8Gb.. Now have an i5 2500,asus h61m, 4gb PC to sell :-D Oh also has Win7 key intact for mobo. Chucked in spare hdd and psu all works so full pc to sell. In my mind upgrade was pretty much free. Person thought motherboard was dead as hdd kept dying even brand new ones, It was the psu mobo is 100% fine.
Just thought Is share my win biggrin.gif
Edit.. disregard my htpc in my sig.. Need to update it. On phone though.
