    MasterJV reacted to Carrotcakee in Custom 8.7 Liter SFF Case (w/ 8700K and Titan X Pascal)   
    Hello, after first posting on this forum 4 years ago about creating a super compact computer case, which sadly never happened when I realized how many measurements had to be exact if everything was going to fit. I am now back here with my journey from wanting to build a super compact computer case to building a huge 54-liter case and finally ending up building a tiny 8.7-liter case that you can see here.
     
    After getting scared of the number of measurements I decided to give up on the case idea and just water cool the computer I had. So in 2015 Snow 1.0 was created. This was my first-time water cooling and I learned a lot from it.
     
    Pictures of Snow 1.0:

     
    One and a half years later in late 2016 I got access to a CNC plasma cutter and decided it was time to try again. At the time I was in love with the cases from Parvum Systems but I didn't like that they were made from acrylic and not aluminum like my previous Phanteks Enthoo Evolv. So after studying their cases, I managed to create a 3D model of the case I wanted to build. All measurements had to be eyeballed since Parvum did not provide any.
     

    Here is my final 3D model and dxf of the completed case: 

     

     
    And some pictures:

     
    The case was cut on a CNC plasma cutter in 3mm thick aluminum. I then milled cubes from solid aluminum that I then drilled and tapped threads into. These were in all corners of the case to hold it together since I did not want to weld anything.
     
    Some final pictures of how the Snow 2.0 turned out:

     
     
     

    Fast forward to mid-2018 and I was tired of carrying around a huge 15Kg, 54 Liter computer everywhere. It was time for Snow 3.0 to happen. I took everything I learned from creating Snow 2.0 and started modeling my new SFF case. I wanted similar to the Dan case A4-SFX and the Louqe Ghost S1. I was more careful this time modeling since everything had to fit very snug this time around. Making cubes in every corner to screw it together would take too much space in the case. Since I don't own a welder for aluminum and I wanted the side panels to be magnetic I had to go with steel. The case was cut with a CNC water cutter for about 136 USD in 2mm thick steel. If you can, use a water cutter. Makes for way less sanding compared to plasma cutting. It will save you hours of sanding... trust me. 
     
    Sadly I don't have many pictures of the building process of Snow 3.0 but here are some shots of the final case:

     
    In each corner, there is a nut welded onto the case and a round-head bolt that I then place magnets onto to hold the side panels firmly onto the case. The bolts make for easy adjustment so that the side panel goes flush with the rest of the case.
     
     

    Some specs and facts:
     
    Snow 1.0 and 2.0:
    Gigabyte GA-Z97 MX Gaming 5
    Intel Core i7 4790K
    8GB HyperX RAM
    Nvidia GTX 780 Ti
    80GB Intel SSD
    1TB WD HDD
    EVGA G2 Supernova 850W
    Watercooling
     
    Snow 3.0:
    Msi Z370i Gaming Pro Carbon AC
    Intel Core i7 8700K
    16GB Corsair RAM
    Nvidia GTX Titan X (Pascal)
    500GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD
    Corsair SF 600w
    Cryorig C1 CPU air cooler
     
    I’m more than happy to share any 3D models or dxf files if anyone would want them.
    If there is any questions, feedback or something I missed, please let me know and I'll try to answer it!

    Right, writing, some thanks are definitely in order! As always the Parvum crew for being down with whatever wild idea we gotta get done yesterday and Noctua for getting the best PC fans in the world on the way to me faster than I could type an email. Things have moved on somewhat since I started this project but I’m extremely grateful for all of OverclockersUK's input especially Ian '8Pack' Parry. I will bring it over to see you guys one day! Not forgetting Corsair either, I probably wouldn't of picked this project back up for a long time had they not been gracious enough to sub in the SSD.
     
    Since I drew the first R1.0 I wanted one for myself, I must have built 20 or 30, everywhere I went I just built R1.0's but now I finally have one distinguished enough to call my own. What I’ll do with it I don't know yet but it sure looks good next to LIGHTNING. It was a long journey particularly with the entire PSU debacle that put me off for so long. However now it has prevailed and 1600W+ of Fury can be unleashed at a moment’s notice it all seems to be worth it. The change of coolant and gold CPU block take it to a different level, I know I didn't show it before but the clear is a much better fit for the spirit of this build. Like a lot of things I was uncertain but when it started to perplex people at LAN as it appeared to have no coolant at all then it was obviously right.

    It was from their website. I actually now have a different issue with their Kickstarter campaign. They're charging 25% VAT on all orders. As I'm not an EU citizen, I'm not required to pay VAT. I messaged him and he refuses to look into it. I'm not paying a 25% premium for no reason. He's ripping people off.

    UPDATE 7.0 - FINAL SHOTS   Hi folks, well it's time to wrap this project up. JUICE came from a strong desire to build a LAN rig in the NFC Systems S4 mini chassis, to running it 24/7 as my daily driver. I'd have never thought I'd get so much performance from a 250 watt PSU. I've some plans to move to an i7 and GTX1080 using the HD-PLEX 300 Watt PSU and my current 330 DELL brick. But for now, it's finished and I'm delighted with it.   I want to extend a huge thank you to Josh from NFC Systems, the team at E22, my boys at Gigabyte UK and my eleventh-hour hero Victor at Open Box Studios.

Around the same time, I'll be doing another buddy build, MODZERO JABBA has been over two years in the making down at Parvum Systems and stands to be quite the eye turner when complete.   Thanks for following along.   J.

    It's probably the record labels pushing this. Like with the movie industry, they want to stick DRM up everyone's butt.
    The only other real option is to manage your own music library locally. Vote with your wallet boys.

    This is why the whole "just make a backdoor but only allow the government to use it" is such an idiotic idea it is only ever said by people who don't know the first thing about computer security.
