Description

I was decided to try a smaller mini itx build. My previous case was a SilverStone RVZ02 (May 2017), it was nice but the lack of airflow it became a problem, getting very high temperatures in hard disks specially.

The build is used for gaming, illustration and animation. The EVGA 1060 SC 6GB is perfect for the case. I bought it a year ago expecting to use it in a smaller build in a future.

Due to my job, I have to move every year temporarily, so I can take it with me into the airplane cabin inside a suitcase or a bag.

I know, the case is expensive, but it is totally worth it. Small, silent and good airflow. It still needs some cable management. I have to work on it :)

The case is amazing! Such a smart and well-thought out layout. The price is a bit too much, hopefully Lazer3d manage a way to lessen the price. Would love to see some inside pics, this tiny guy is a powerhouse! +1

If the case wasn't so expensive, I'd say it'd be perfect for turning into a Portal cube :) At least they offer quite a few customization options.

Dear Lazer3d Lord id like some temps on this build so that I can assure myself this is the case ive been waiting for (researching a tiny i7-7700k build for 2 montsh -- im not overclocking at all I just want the base speed of 4.2 for my DAW)

Here is an article I recently wrote with detailed temperature results for a system running an i7-7700. I expect the stock 7700k will be slightly higher, but as you can see in the article the temps are pretty good:

Oh okay neat, what are your thoughts on using the Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 14 mounted on the Prolimatech Samuel 17, I never heard of that cooler up until i was looking at the ones available for purchase with the lz7 on overclockuk -- It's seems like it might be perfect for this case? Thanks again!

Its looks like a pretty good cooler, but once you mount a slim fan on top your getting close to the cases upper clearance limit, so I'm not sure how well it will perform, I've not personally tested it. The cooler is compatible with a 120mm fan, so I wouldn't go for the Vortex 14, I would instead get the Vortex 12, or if you can afford go for the Noctua A12x15 slim fan. Problem with putting larger fans onto heatsinks is that most airflow is generated around the outer edge of fans, so when they hang off heatsinks most of the airflow is not actually pushed through the heatsink and you may find you get higher temps with a 140mm fan compared to a 120mm fan.

great job with the build. i'm looking to move some of my components out of my RVZ02 for the same thermal reasons as well
