Haha, yeah couldn't get the same name or even close to it here so did a play on my fractal node. Actually I nabbed both the 160W and 250W HD Plex units to mess around with. Currently running with 160W unit, more than enough for 3770K plus 750 Ti which under CPU + GPU torture test burn about 130W, 167W from the wall.

Haha! I didn't recognize you until I saw the avatar and the systems specs.

NO WAY! That low? That is amazing stuff :)If I can get my payment route sorted, I could see myself snag an L2 but I'm very much interested in a Matte Grey L2 ...

Temps wise is the ventilated side panel helping?

Kinda surprised myself at how low when I plugged the kill -a- watt in, ~38W at idle. The GPU appears to power throttle right at 60W during torture tests and I've only seen the CPU package power spike to the rated 77W normally high 50s to mid 60W. The side panel definitely helps temps, I ran a bunch of experiments on my L1 with a perforated cardboard side panel and just running without one.

I think I could probably do a mild OC back up to 4.1G if I wanted but really no reason.

some pics of my build in the new M1. the build (including teardown of my old pc) took me maybe 3h, half of which was working out how to fit the H80i (poor choice by me about 12 months ago to go with a fat rad AIO).

thanks to W360 and Necere for probably the highlight of my year - the little intricacies of building in this case has been the most fun ive had in a long time. quite seriously, the more i looked the more options to put different parts in different places, and its all been just so well thought out.

pull up your socks pc case building industry, because this case is outstanding, and nothing ive ever built in matches the ingenuity or attention to detail the M1 v2 has.

parts:
4x Noiseblocker eLoop 120mm PWM fans
SX600-G PSU
i5 4670k @ 4.2ghz
H80i 120mm AIO
Z87i-pro mITX
XFX R9 290 DD (mild OC)
2x 250GB Samsung EVO SSD's
WD Black 750GB 2.5" HDD

enjoy!



















a few notes for those building in this case
- PSU before internal SSD bracket - i could not get the PSU in around the SSD bracket with 2x SSD's mounted on it.
- take your time - a missed screw or such could mean an hour of removing parts and rebuilding in this shoebox.

A note on the SX600-G - have yet to see the fan come on, even with a 10min burn of prime95/furmark, which i was very impressed with. actually no it just came on while im writing this. a small click as the motor kicks in and then i cant hear it over the 2.5" HDD and the H80i pump. fan is very quiet.

Awesome! I'm wondering if the upgrade to the SX600-G is worth it for the fan noise alone. Maybe i'll wait for the SFX-L tongue.gif
