I haven't looked through the whole thread, but does anyone know if there is a case like this: (NFC - S3)



Using a pcioPSU, you could easily power an i3 and 750ti.

http://www.mini-box.com/12v-16A-AC-DC-Power-Adapter (Not sure if the power brick would work with the PSU.)

Hi, I'm Majentrix and I'd like to join the club!

  • Cubitek Mini Cube (19.2L)
  • Asus H97I-PLUS
  • Intel i3 4150 (cooled by a spare Thermaltake AIO which I've crammed into the 90mm fan slot)
  • Gigabyte R9 270
  • Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black
  • Corsair TX650 (160mm long despite the case only officially supporting 150mm long PSUs)
  • 8GB G.SKILL DDR3 1600 Ares


Future upgrade plans, from top to bottom in terms of importance:

  1. SSD
  2. Pentium G3258
  3. Blower style GTX 760+
  4. Shorter, modular PSU

Sometimes the only way to make people aware of a fire is to set the whole town ablaze.

Not too good. 35 on the CPU and 45 on the graphics card idling. Temps get up to around 60 and 70 respectively.
Problem is the 270 exhausts all of its hot air into the case, which is then sucked in by the CPU cooler. If I had a blower card that ejected all of its air outside the case overall temps would go down, even if the cooling on the GPU wasn't as good.

Those dual fan cards are not made for these SFF cases. I highly recommend swapping coolers or getting a blower card. I hae a Dual shot cooler 560ti classy in my Hadron, and temps were terrible. After I switched coolers from a 480, my case temps went down 10-15 degrees C. Try and find a stock blower on ebay, they always have em for sale when dudes switch to watercooling.

see my buildlog in the last couple of pages - i searched for months for a case like the one youve listed.....the Lone Industries L2 is the closest i could find. it only does LP GPU's however which basically limits you to the hardware ive put in mine.

EDIT - you can buy combos from mini-box of pico's and bricks i think that save you money

Problem is I don't think blower coolers exist for my card. I know that the reference cooler is a blower, but I don't think you can buy those.

There may be a possibility of swapping coolers from a last generation card, or a card that has the same hole locations and measurements as your card.
The 270 and the the earlier generation AMD cards could have similar measurements and hole locations. You could possibly swap a blower/heatsink from like a 5870 or a 7870. Not saying its a guarantee, but it might be worth researching.
