Awesome build!

I have a bit of a random question for you... I have a few SSDs and I’m thinking of mounting them against the PSU shroud. I have custom RGB covers for them. I was wondering how much clearance is there between the PSU shroud and the side panel? Could I fit an SSD + cover in that gap?

Awesome build!

Question for you - I have an SSD with a custom design cover. I’m wondering if that will fit when mounted to the shroud. Can you tell me how much clearance there is between your SSD and the side panel? I’d estimate the cover adds 5mm

Yep it's G.Skill. That's a shame, don't know of any other low-profile RGB cooler that won't cover the RAM... might have to look at a slimmer tower cool. Thanks anyways!

Great build. I'm about to build with this case and the same cooler. But looking at you're photos I'm a bit worried that the cooler might not fit because of my RAM. How much clearance is there between top of your RAM and the cooler?

Great build and great write up!

I'm starting a Metis build shortly and this was extremely valuable. I assume if I go with an AIO water cooler for the CPU I'll have enough clearance at the bottom of the case for a 3.25 drive? You've also probably convinced me to go with an SFX PSU even though I was hoping to save money and use my existing PSU... seems the benefit for cabling and cooling is worth it.

Amazing. Love the idea and the fact you have the skills to actually pull if off. Congratulations and well done.

Nice compact build. Any reason you chose the ML04 over the newer Milo models?

Also, keen to know how that 1050 performs? What kind of games you playing with it?

There are indeed 2 and use of either will disable a corresponding SATA connector. So if you used both M.2 slots you could only add 6 SATA drives. This is a bit of a trade off if you’re building something to store a lot of data (which I am) so I’m left with capacity for 7 big drives. But I suppose you could always add a RAID card for more down the track.

When I saw the thumbnail pick I thought it was a normal size monitor inside a case as big as a wall... but still gets my vote :)

That mobo takes 8 Sata?! What raid / OS? And do you use this as Plex server?

Sorry for all the questions but I very nearly built something like this myself so I’m very curious!

Oh and more pics please :)

Really nice work dude, very slick and clean look. And I really love that case... probably my fav on the market right now.

I just passed out reading the parts list...

I don’t think you need to worry about air con in your house. Just situate this in whatever room needs cooling.

Nice build. Have been looking at this case lately, love it in white. That window panel is interchangeable on other sides yeah?

Awesome, haven’t seen too many of these around. Can I ask, does it get noisy when you’re stressing the CPU? Looks like that thing wouldn’t insulate sound very well.

Thanks. I haven’t explored the optimization feature much in Plex, looks like I need to get on this.

My wife only plays HotS and now you made me feel like a cheapskate for building her a Pentium G4400 + RX460 :/

But kudos on the build! :)

Nice build. Sounds very similar to my own setup. We can’t live without Plex :)

How is the i3 coping with transcoding duties? And any plans to put a GPU in it?

What a beast, and yes, overkill for sure :)

Can I ask what the noise levels are like? Have you got this sitting near TV / PC area or completely seperate room? Curious whether that case is made for home use or for noisy server rooms.

Love it. I think you just convinced me to buy the white version of this case. Looks so clean and with the red I just love the contrast.

How are you finding performance of the 1050ti? I’m not too fussed about maxing out AAA games, play mostly eSports titles, and have been weighing up this or just the standard 1050.

They are pretty similar. The 7700k is clocked higher, but the Xeon uses much less power (72W vs 91W). Depends on the use. For a pure gaming system I'd go the 7700k especially if you want to OC, but for a home server the Xeon makes more sense.

The C236 chipset is mainly for workstation / server builds but can run any 1151 CPU. It's very much a standard chipset, just less common.

Thanks! Yep, these are considered entry-level Xeons and are pretty good value for money even for normal home/desktop use.

First time running ECC. My only thoughts are what I've gathered from online research, that being it's more reliable with lower failure rates, but you only tend to reap these rewards from systems running under load for long periods of time. Downside is that it won't come in higher ram speeds and that its more expensive, but for my purposes 2400mhz is more than enough and the cost wasn't prohibitive.
