Description

Wanted to do a small form factor itx build, so here it is. Had to up the fan curve to get cpu temps down, but they're now low with not much noise.

Used mainly as a travel rig, I wanted to have something portable I could game on at max settings while working out of town.

Glad I ordered short custom cables. Everything fits well, i could probably put an even (slightly) taller cpu cooler. Case is solid.

Edit: Ended up switching to the noctua NH-L12S, and it definitely does the trick for the 7700k. I actually have some overclocking room now. Wish I had gone with this one first, highly recommended for small builds.

Lmao that's awesome, my build I tried to go small but this is crazy stuff, gw dude

What a little powerhouse! This baby is a beauty, well done bud +1

Thank you! It was a blast to plan and build!

What lengths are your cables from cablemode? I am going to do a build with the LZ7 case and what things to be super tidy!

I like, I have the same case! and loving it, I want to do custom cables too!

Man I missed this one. Tiny and powerful. Great job.

Must be like a toaster in there! This is probably the cooler you're looking for. I'd maybe go as far as delidding to prevent throttling. Great build :)

fuzzydrpepper submitter 2 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

Yep, I ended up getting a slightly bigger fan for the one I have, but may eventually switch to that since I have the clearance for it. Thanks!

The NH-L9i is a little under-powered for the i7-7700k especially if overclocked. If you ever wanted to upgrade I would recommend going for the NH-L12S, perfect fit for the LZ7 and will cool the 7700k with ease.

I actually ended up getting that cooler and just installed it. I will post some updated pictures whenever I get a chance. Thanks! Love the case!

Thanks for sharing, looks great!

I see you went for an SFX-L type PSU, how did you find working with this size of PSU, the cabling routing must have been tight?

fuzzydrpepper submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I used custom length cables, and just kind of got creative with looping them to save space. The fit isn't bad at all honestly, but I think with stock cables it would have been a lot more trouble.

I went as short as possible with all of them, but I wasn't able to reach with the CPU cable, so I'd add a few mm to that one.

jecthefreck 1 point 11 months ago

Did you buy them from cablemod or did you make them yourself? Would you be able to list the length of each cable you used?

fuzzydrpepper submitter 2 Builds 4 points 11 months ago

Ordered them from cablemod.

24 pin: 250mm; 8 pin EPS: 150mm (I think 200mm would get you there, 250mm to be extra safe); 8 pin PCI-E: 150mm; Dual SATA (unused): 150mm/50mm

Thanks, hugely helpful! Buying for a Mini ITX build now myself and landed here because I'm bought the same video card. :-)

Are you sure that is a Noctua NH-L12S? It looks smaller

fuzzydrpepper submitter 2 Builds 2 points 10 months ago

No, that's the Noctua NH-L9I in the picture. I recently switched to the NH-L12S, as I stated in the description.

Would you mind posting your cables length so i can have them for my build when I build this?
