I am all about some powerful mini itx builds. I agree, more pics would be good. Also, I am not sure what a K39 is, but it sure is expensive.

You took that noctua color scheme and went with it! It looks good though. I really like it!

Man, this thing is super cool. I love the looks of this case. I kind of want one now. Great job!

Thank you. I used the 10mmx10mm beams and components from MakerBeam. Got everything I needed from amazon. You can order directly from MakerBeam but amazon carries everything they make.

Thanks. I had a bag of these blue anodized collars and wanted to use them so yes, this was kinda of the look I was going for. The carbon fiber is thick enough to counter sink the holes. (2.4 mm thick). I like the collars because it allowed me to oversize the holes and gave me so wiggle room to align the panels. Making all of this by hand and trying to get everything square can prove a little challenging when trying to get a little M3 screw hole to line up perfectly.

Thank you, I really appreciate that. I agree, some of these dual custom loops on here are truly works of art.

Thank you. Yeah, I figured I would catch some flak for replacing the noctua. I did find it a good home in my NAS that runs 24/7. It is perfect for that.

Since the wire mesh is made from steel, I actually have magnetic dust filters that I cut to fit the openings perfectly. The mesh is actually cut out of an office wall mounted file holder I had laying around. Great air flow and no air turbulence noise compared to the aluminum perforated mesh I have used in the past. I want steel mesh specifically for the purpose of the magnetic filters.

Thank you for your kind words. Building the case in this method is actually pretty easy. Just plan out your layout and frame around it. I did get a little over ambitious with the cable management.

Thank you so very much. I used a table saw and router table to cut the carbon fiber. I have a really good dust collection system in my garage but still used a full face respirator and filtered shop vac. Carbon fiber dust can be pretty nasty.

In this particular build, it uses a flex atx power supply. (server style). I cut and shortened the cables. All my other posted builds with the exception of one are mini itx builds of various sizes. My last being in a Phanteks evolv mitx case. For mini itx, a modular PSU is a must for clean cable management.

I would have to say that in some ways, it is more expensive. Motherboards normally cost a little more feature for feature compared to their MATX or ATX counterparts. Power supplies are more costly in SFX form. High end SFX cases can get pretty costly. But, you can also make up the difference here and there. Only need 2 sticks of ram. Don't have room for as many case fans. And if you are water cooling, you won't need as much equipment. As for me, I enjoy building small form factor PC's. I find it satisfying and fun.

Oh man, that is an insane amount of power in something so tiny! It reminds me of a friend of mine that put a 572 big block into a chevy vega. It overheated a lot and definitely could not use the motor to its full potential but boy was it a lot of fun. This build is pretty awesome!

As someone who has recently started to go a little overboard with cable management, I think you cable management is great. This is a wonderful build.

I get all my carbon fiber from Composite Envisions. They have cloths, rigid plates, tubes, pretty much anything you would need in many sizes. They also have different colors and patterns. (compositeenvisions.com)

Thank you. On the LCD screen, I used AIDA64 sensory panel. I believe that you would need a purchased licensed version. Not sure if you could on the trial version. You can monitor anything that your motherboard will provide. It allows you to select what kind of graph or gauge you want to display, range, colors, fonts, size whatever. Its really customizable. I had to watch a tutorial on Youtube for it, but wasn't to difficult to use. You can even create your own graphs and gauges. There was a Jarvis Iron Man one on youtube that was awesome.

I didn't run any lights between the PSU shroud and glass. Caused a lot of shadows and interfered with the LCD panel. I run one strip on the top edge mounted just behind the lip on the top fan tray. I also run a 4 in strip in the top fan tray behind the top front fan to illuminate the cable pass through. On the backside, I run a strip down the front edge and along the bottom. So, you could run a strip along the bottom and top. Also, you could use a fan ring halo (Phanteks or silverstone) on your noctuas. (120mm or 140mm) I have used the Phanteks ones before and like them a lot. halo ring build

Micro center. My first time ever visiting one of them. It was awesome! They had some odd pairings of cpu and motherboard combos, but when I found this one, I couldn't pass it up.

Thank you for your kind words. A friend of mine turned me to this site a few years ago and it has been nothing but helpful. The responses I have received from other builders when I had questions has always been positive. The kindness from other builders and the ability to visually see it through their posted builds is what makes this a wonderful site.

Thank you. I wanted the cable runs to be clean and some what different. I bet it took me over 2 weeks to make all the cables and get the runs right.

There are actually 2 Corsair 140mm front intake fans. Bottom one kind of hard to see. Feeds GPU through the shroud. I have 5 140 fans, 2 of them have rgb, 6 led strips and rgb ssd all controlled by Corsair Icue. I also needed the usb2 hub of the commander pro for the lcd screen. I wanted individual speed control of the fans and more separate lighting zones. It took me awhile to sort this all out and plan all my wiring runs for it. On an atx board this may not be necessary. But on itx where fan, rgb and usb 2 headers are limited or non existent, this is what you gotta do.

Yeah, if I paid 1700$ for GPU, I would have stoked out. It was rough paying 1200. The case was on sale. I was initially wanting the all black one but was 89$. I guess the black and red ones are not as popular. It was my first trip to a micro center and I kind of lost my self control. I almost always build itx PC's. I like the challenge. And besides, this thing is absolutely huge compared to my other builds! The smaller the case, less carbon fiber. Thanks for your compliment. I really do appreciate it.

It was tight. No clearance issues with mother board heatsinks. Only issue was the cut out in fin stack for clearance of ram. I guess the socket on the asus z390i is a little closer to ram slots. I had to file them back a little. Only way I could mount it and use center fan was to remove the aluminum top plate (4 screws), mount the cooler and then slide the fan in from the top. Mounting the cooler to the mother board and then installing in the case was not happening.

I guess that would depend on the thickness of you ssd cover. From the side of the PSU shroud to the edge of the case is right at 15 mm. or just a bit over 9/16th's. Roughly about the width of 2 standard SSD's stacked on top of each other. You should be fine.

This is the lcd screen I used. LCD screen I think that the opening on the evolve X may be different. take some measurements and compare that to screen size.
