I've launched a site for all my builds, current and old here: www.minibotpc.com Would first of all like to Thank Xtia and Bitspower for sponsoring this build. I would not be able to do this without their support so thank you so much to the contacts at both companies. Would also like to Thank Jginyue for sponsoring the motherboard with their B760i Snow Dream. This is a midranged super compact open frame SFF build. This showpiece is about half the size of my previous build, following on with a similar theme so expect custom distros, gorgeous chrome tubing and Bitspower branding. Xtia has sent me a full care package for the XProto Mini with all the extras plus a 600w Flex PSU and cabling. The Mini is one of the smallest cases from Xtia, they do make an even smaller one but that's for another time. The layout is very similar to my AquaFusion build, same sandwich layout except it uses a FLEX psu. They included a mounting for a SFX psu but i think to keep with the compact theming i will use the FLEX psu for this build. The Core components will include the following with more to verify as we go. Intel 13400F Corsair LPX 3200mhz DDR4 Jginyue B760i Snow Dream Crucial P5 Plus 1tb NVME Drive RTX 3070 Founders Edition Xtia Enhance 7660B Customised 600w PSU with custom cables Xtia PCIE 4.0 riser cable Bitspower Watercooling blocks, fittings and tubing Custom Distro(s) Custom Rad Mount Custom Colour scheme Jginyue B760i motherboard: RTX 3070 Founders Edition: Intel 13400F + Corsair LPX 3200 DDR4: Current design process and layout CPU Side: The build is still very much in early days of development. We still need to decide on colour scheme, though i think we will end up going full white with black and chrome accents. I will need to get creative and develop a mount for a bottom mounted 240mm radiator. The aim is to not divert from its vertical structure too much, adding things that hang off the front and back is a no go (this is to be avoided). However i can stack rads etc onto the bottom or top, however i see fit. This calls for some 3D planning and i need to becareful with the purchasing side as i have some serious size limitations. This is particularly true when it came to the graphics card, only 1 card really made the list.. the RTX 3070 Founders Edition. The constraint was having to use a Bitspower block and the only one that met the size requirements, was the 3070 FE card. The limitation was a 210mm length card, the bitspower 3070 Classic block meets this requirement with room to spare. Next up will be designing tube runs and the bottom bracket to hold the 240mm radiator followed by a pump mounting interface for the custom distro.
