I've been MIA the last couple of months because of a new job, moving, university, etc, etc!!!
But I've finally decided on my new build. (Thanks to She Loved E) biggrin.gif
I love SFF builds, whether there completely fan less for a low powered HTPC or when Miahallen stuffed a GTX 580 and a H70 into the SG05. With the upcoming release and low power consumption of Nvidia's Titan the power to size ratio just increased! (Hopefully?)

Here's the parts list so far:
CPU: Intel 3770K
GPU: Nvidia Titan
MOBO: Asrock Z77E-ITX
SSD: Sandisk Extreme 240GB in Raid 0
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8GB 1866mhz
COOLING: Corsair H100i to start. Then a custom loop.
FANS: Gelid Wing 120 Green x3
CASE: She Loved E's Compact Splash!
PSU: Silverstone ST45SF-G 450W (Sleeved and shortened eventually)

Now I've managed to order the motherboard, processor and one of the SSD's. I should have all the other parts bar the Titan ordered and delivered before the case arrives so the build can begin straight away!

Updates! 5/3/13
  • Customised nameplate on the back of the Compact Splash!
  • Green/Black colour scheme
  • Just ordered sleeve and some crimping business to shorten cables.
  • Redoing current plan...
  • Did super duper basic 5 minute draft header.
Update 27/02/13
  • Motherboard, 3770K and PSU have shipped!
  • Motherboard pictures!




    Tiny tiny update...
    Bought a 3570K instead of 3770K couldn't justify the extra $110.

    Got a nice steady OC @4.5Ghz on standard voltages so pretty happy so far.

    Sorry about the horrible cell phone pictures. Should be able to get a hold of the girlfriends fancy camera soon enough to re do.

    Also the order form for the Compact Splash goes live on the 8th!

That's 21,6Ghz of pure power for a game.

Why not go custom loop directly as I may ask?
It will be a very powerful moderately small system so don't forget to post some pics one finished in the beastly M-atx m-itx thread.

How about the new Swiftech H220? It is an all-in-one dual rad like the Corsair H100i, but with two differences. Obviously the Corsair has the Corsair Link built-in. The Swiftech, however, can be converted to a custom loop. It is ready to use out of the box, but you can add to it and refill it.

To be honest, I just have a H100i lying around from a build I did for my brothers.

So when I've paid for the actually hardware I'll then buy the loop a week or two later. Thanks for the suggestions though!

Give me 24 hours to update the OP.

EDIT:
Nothing interesting to report until my stuff comes in anyway frown.gif

Hahaha,

Fancy seeing you here! Reviews of the Titan are out... They were built for each other!

Yeah I want one soooo bad! How are you feeling about it and the 3770k running on 450 watts? If you pull it off there's no reason to run a full size rig again imo.

Well hopefully it should run okay!

I mean if Miahallen could technically run a 580 (Not really run but...) off the older 450w and its max TDP was 244w and the Titan is 250w. If not though I believe there is some way to adjust the power draw in the Titan. It's going to be my primary rig so I hope I can pull it off.

Here's hoping I can power it all without sacrificing on performance because I have to under clock the card! smile.gif

Well im right in there with you for Compact Splash case cant wait to get my hands on one! One of my concerns even though I have been told otherwise many times is the amount of power that little PSU puts out. If you plan on running a Titan and a 3770K the little voice in my head says your crazy but I hope it works! Subbed to this and cannot wait to see what you come up with!

EDIT: With running the PSU at that rate all the time will it make its life shorter?

Yes, but its lifespan is rated at 100,000 hours at 25°C, full load. So it should be good for 11.4 years smile.gif
