I was happy with My Mini Marvel https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/TYZRsY - but then quite quickly moved to the NZXT H200 case.

Then, after seeing the Louqe Ghost S1, I really wanted to try a truly SFF PC.

There were only two difficulties:

  1. Sourcing a Ghost S1 in the UK - there's lots of delays currently, so in the end I found a second-hand one on eBay. The advantage was that it was completely new condition, and only £140. The disadvantage was that it was missing the front button cap, the internal kettle/IEC lead, and worst of all, the riser cable.

  2. The GPU didn't quite fit - fortunately it was fairly easy to cut a little of the plastic fan shroud near the IO panel.

One of the power connectors on the GPU is not connected. Btw, I love the compactness of it all.

Good spot - is the second one necessary? I thought that was only for OC’ing.

I don't know, I thought that the card would only work when both connectors are in. I would do it just for the safety of the system and yourself.

It's not truly SFF if it doesn't require cutting/modding of some component or another.

Seller said it was an RMA from Louqe, hence no button/riser etc. In all to replace those it’s another £25.

Hi, could you show an image of where you made the cut to the GPU fan shroud? Is it at the far left in the middle stripe in the last photo? I have the same card and looking into the Ghost S1 as well.
