Working on another water cooled mITX build.... I swear I need to stop changing my setup on a monthly basis. I bet good money ($399 worth) that a GTX 670 would fit in the Lian Li PC-Q11A and it sure did. This case is going to be modded pretty heavily as soon as I take measurements and get parts on order. I just wanted to make sure everything works for now.

Yeah, it was real close. The case had some... *ahem* stress marks on it from me having to he-man it apart to get the card down there.

Scorpion that's an awesome little build! What did you do with your old one?

Yeah, I like the shape of it a lot. Its nicely made like most Lian Li cases, and simple looking enough not to be tacky. I wanted white but the powdercoat added $80 to the price.

Old one was temporary, only thing that changed was the GPU and PSU, and the SG05 "frame" I was using.

the primary problem with PC-Q11A is dust... it doesn't have any dust filters so over time, you'd have to keep a close eye on the dust buildup.

The only fan in the whole deal (the intake fan) has a filter on it. Its really hard to filter ITX rigs anyways because they need passive vents to have any airflow since most only have one fan. I hate it because my apartment is very dusty so I keep about 20 cans of compressed air on hand.

that's the main reason i like the SG07/SG08 design. the 180mm fan is filtered and it also provides a filter for the GPU intake. the PSU intake is also filtered. so there is no dust problem at all.

Scorpion, that's a great build. smile.gif

How's the noise level at idle? I want do something similar in a Q11, but I'm wary of fan noise from blower style cards. However, those are currently the only 670's that are 9.5" or shorter.
