I don't think I've poked my head in this thread yet, so here I am!

I'm assuming an i5-4670k and GTX-780 inside an EVGA Hadron Air qualifies?





My GPU isn't overclocked at present (The 3DMark screenshot shows the last time I played with it), since the little 40mm PSU fan and reference cooler combine to make a bit of a racket at full bore. But the processor has been running at a modest 4.0GHz for a few months.

Full specs:

i5-4670k
PNY GTX-780
ASRock Z87-I
8GB, Crucial Ballistix
Plextor 128GB mSata (Boot/Skyrim drive)
WD 1TB (Everything else)
Noctua NH-C14 CPU cooler (This thing was a &%*$# to get in the case)
Yate-Loon Slim 120mm fan (The stock fan above the CPU wouldn't fit with the massive cooler. This one just BARELY squeaks by. We're talking a sticker's width)

might not be as beastly as most ,but I think it is pretty beastly for being in a nes case! ( 4 liter case )

build log here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1526008/buildlog-nes-3-0-htpc-nes-build

specs as of now

1985 nes case
gtx 750 TI LP
[email protected]
asrock -H97m-ITX/ac
cheapo 2.5" HDD 250gb(just a place holder)
pico 160XT
I'm honestly rather surprised at how well everything is fitting in the case. Excellent job! Now you have me looking at my broken Xbox (1st gen) with itchy fingers...

#4 is incorrect. You never profit... it's just an endless black hole that sucks your credit cards and paychecks remorselessly.

You don't have to have a fully working example to be a part of this thread, WIPs are more than welcome! Also, kudos on the case selection, its fun seeing people manage to cram an Micro-ATX board into a Hadron.

Do it yourself!



I'd recommend birdshot with a wide-spread choke for maximum ventilation.

Rat rod case build!

Or you could grind the holes flat, clean up the edges, then re-paint. It'd have this cool random pattern and a sweet build log entry!

That was my first though. My Skyrim averages about 45fps on my GTX-780 at this point.

Trying to convince them to branch into the enthusiast market. That's where the fun is, right?
Have any interior shots? Curious to see how everything fits together.

Kinda like folks who buy 8-core processors and 32GB of ram to play CS:GO and League of Legends...

Awwww, you gotta be able to break 10k? Mine is sitting at 9.5k ._.

Actually, it's probably worse than that now... the 9.5k was with my old 16:9 monitor. 21:9 has a wee bit more pixels.

Also, wouldn't it be better to remove that exhaust fan and then turn the CPU cooler so it's moving air the same direction as the case fans?

Not really a small case, Fractal Nano S, nor the most powerful parts... but still relatively powerful for the size compared to ATX builds.

Case: Fractal Nano S
Mobo: ASRock Fatal1ty Z370
CPU: i7-8700k
Ram: 32GB 2400mhz DDR4
GPU: GTX-1070 FE
SSDs: 250gb Samsung 960, 960gb SanDisk Ultra II

Cooling parts are all EKWB parts, except for an Optimus V1 CPU block and some Bitspower fittings here and there.

Rebuilt my system, was getting tired of having to drain and remove the res/pump to plug in a SATA cable or do anything else.

Changes from the previous build: replaced the EKWB CoolStream SE240s with Nemesis 240 and 120 GTS rads front and back. Vardar 120S fans replaced with Noctua NF-A12x25. The EK Res has was swapped out for a SavantPCs 240mm res in the top radiator position (also lets me close the top for quieter operation). The D5 pump got a Protium top and cover.

Also delidded the 8700k and put in a 1080ti I nabbed for cheap when the RTX hype was at max.

On a related topic, any ideas for how to make a new side panel? The 120GTS is too chubby for the stock window to close fully, I have my bluetooth speaker holding it in place right now. If I could just offset it by about 2mm, that'd work too.
