    That's awesome, small builds really interest me at the moment, fancy a small 1080p 60fps build for the front room in the future, would love one of those cases but very expensive

    Looks good, able to install thin 80/92mm top or bottom to aid with Fanless PSU cooling ?

    Sounds a bit weird to add a fan towards a fanless PSU, especially when the case is very quiet with only two fans now (one for the CPU and one on the GPU) :)

    was my thinking that they work best when there is airflow in the case going over them ? could be wrong though and that i7 wouldn't dump to much heat into the case which is handy

    FE card will start to make its sound when you get into good gaming sessions but least it will expel the heat out of the itx case :D

    Nice :cool:

    Great to see another fellow member on here who has took the plunge with this case, here's my build with the latest A4 V3 variant that I built last week :) Originally I was intending on going down the 92mm AIO route but in the end decided to stick to air as I am eventually looking to step up to 144hz gaming / upgrade to something like a 1070 so this will take up the spare room where the AIO would go.

    i5-8400 (30c idle / 64c at full load)
    2 x 4GB DDR4 2666Mhz
    Sapphire RX 570 4GB ITX (40c idle / 79c at full load on a really hot day but on average 75c)
    250GB Samsung 970 (behind the motherboard but no concerns at all with temps as they only peak at 55c)
    Corsair SFX 450W

    How are you finding the Nightjar? I think you definitely could have pushed it more than you have, but interested how it performs.

    Heavy, large, quiet, no coil whining (but I'm not young so I'm not sensitive to high pitch noise), warm and stable when stressed with GTX 1080 and 7700T.

    Never gonna buy another PSU with a fan :)

    Super clean build. I was also thinking about getting the Dan Case v3, mainly for portability ;0. Any concerns temperature wise?

    What model cables did you use?
    Cablemod doesn't offer specific cables for that PSU and I'm looking to do the same

    Cheers

    I hope you don't keep that film on the graphics card? Have the pleasure in peeling it off the graphics card
