Description

Thought to share a rebuild of my Lian-li Mini ITX build.

Got a deal on a used i7-7700K and Z270i motherboard and wanted a monoblock build just for the aesthetics while keeping the SFX form factor.

So here it is guys, my first attempt at multiple corners using PETG for the easier working of bends. Plan to redo in acrylic sometime over the Xmas when I get some spare time.

Bottom radiator has modified mounting points.

Thanks for viewing.

So glad I've sold you this mobo! You've got yourself one of the best SFF builds I've ever seen.

How much clearance do you have from the side panel and the 1080 waterblock?

  • 19 months ago

0 (zero)mm. Thumbscrews tightened just enough to hold it in place without pressure on the block/motherboard. But I tend to leave the side open. I like caressing her insides

You have a nice PC you have no fan on the radiator on the one that is all the way down this does not affect the temperature

During gaming sessions GPU temp peaks at 43C, CPU max temp is 55C, PCH 58C.

Gorgeous build, so clean. Don't know the case very well, did you have to mod it to pass your tubing to the res or did it come ready for custom loop?

Thanks. yes, I had to mod case.

Very nice build. Does the xspc tank reservoir and d5 pump fit in the back compartment with the side panel closed? I see the tank reservoir is 75mm wide but the sfx psu is 63.5mm. Is there enough clearance? I am thinking of getting this case but was not sure if a d5 pump would fit in the back with panel closed. Otherwise will have to go for ddc pump.

It's a snug fit but it closes without issues as the compartment measures just under 76mm. The power supply is about 10mm from the mid wall.

I’ve seen plenty of builds but I have never drooled over any of them as much as this.

Bought this case because of that and plan to make a loop, wondering if you have any tips or general insight? I’ve only ever done one basic open loop before but interested in PETG tubing for those perfect angles.

Cheers, this thing is a work of art.

I really appreciate your feedback, thank you.

If I had to do one thing different it is to keep the sleeved cables as short as possible, interferes with the pump/res combo.

Be ready for the unexpected if you are plan on modifying the case, had to drill new mount holes for the bottom radiator.

Do you plan on mounting pump/res in back or front compartment?

Of course, thanks for your response!

I dont think I'll be having the pump/res in the back, nor a passive radiator on the bottom. I think for sake of convenience I'll have the pump/res similar to how RyanEl has it here.

Did the passive radiator on the bottom make enough of a difference with your temperatures to be worth it? That is something I could try to do after I finish the first revision.

The passive rad was mainly to execute the loop design tbh but if memory serves me right the coolant temps dropped by 1-2C.

My loop design is having another revision lol. I designed a plexiblock which will replace the front glass.

RyanEl design is very neat.

Looking forward to seeing the next rebuild. Might be a bit before I can get my case, vendor said its coming out of Taiwan and apparently this case is (understandably so) very popular.

Thanks for your insight! I'll be sure to tag you or something once I've got mine completed. ;)

Fantastic build! Is there enough space by the window to fit the "GeForce GTX1080Ti" plate over the GPU waterblock?

Nice build can you tell me what fitting did you used connected to the case(going front to the back)?Exact name of product.

Hey awesome build! Could you tell us why you made the top fans as intake? I see most of these build as exhaust fans at the top

Thanks. It's to pass "cooler" are through the radiators, just a preference.
