    wejjy - I think that your build is amazing. I am always surprised that so much tech can be placed into such a small space. Do you have an impression of the noise level? Are the fans on a controller?

    Thanks pal, HDD solved a few problems with this design so Im really happy, everything I need in a small case!

    Thanks Neil, it is amazing really, my other build is the SR2 Desk so seeing this thing and also how it performs has well and truly impressed me. Im so glad that itx is getting the attention it deserves, its the future in my opinion!

    As for noise the fans all run at a measly 5v so no need for a controller and the noise is barely a whisper, thats the joy of having the two thicker rads, super cool and very very quiet :)

    I look forward to seeing that mate, I'll look out for it in the forums.

    Thanks pal, its very very tough thinking of something even half original with the super high standard of mods in this forum so I appreciate that comment a lot! Thanks ;)

    Thanks pal!

    Love the build, probably the best use of space inside an ITX case I've ever seen. Been thinking of going watercooled ITX for my next build too and I might just have to steal a few ideas from this build haha. How easy is it to transport, would you recommend draining the loop first or is it fine?

    I love the external placement of the reservoir, and I really love the 'monitor' and speakers! That's a great Civ5 setup there!

    So here are the final pictures of my mini monster! Overall I am super duper pleased with this project, it's been so easy in comparison to the desk and its running super cool at 4.5ghz, that plus the 670 make it an awesome gaming machine but also it runs OSX ML perfectly which is incredibly quick for rendering and editing stuff in! I love it!

    There a panel for the other side identical to the left one, I took it off for the photos that's all!

    Hope you like it!

    OK so keen to get feedback on my plans with this little beast, lots of people have modded them and amazingly at that, but how far can we go?

    Im planning a build including the following... and would like some thoughts on it pleasey :D

    So it would basically be as above but with:

    - Asus ROG Gene V M-ATX mobo
    - 32Gb RAM (I know I know, too much blah blah!)
    - Crossfired 7970's under H2o
    - Twin thick 240 rads
    - Multiple HDD's
    - Aquaero 5 to control it all
    - 3770k under H2o
    - All with a hefty amount of bling, lighting and associated OTTness.

    What do you think, is it original enough, or should I just leave it alone?

    Thanks guys...

    keep this log and just change the tittle name in your first post and go in advanced setting to do it. Like that you'll keep the number of replies and views... Lot of views = better visibility for you and your thread = first page on the modding page... ;)

    Looking like a powerful little pc. I'm currently drawing up plans for a Prodigy case. Slightly different take on it, but still, I hope it turns out as well as this one.
