Wow that is small! Not as small as the CM Elite 110 though :P.

I was considering getting that case, but wanted a GTX970. A couple months after I rebuilt my PC, they announced the 970 ITX.

haha yeah it isn't the smallest ITX case but it is perfect for my setup at home. Especially that the ports are out the top! so it will sit under the desk perfectly.

the Asus 970 is getting fantastic reviews as well. Interesting to see what it's actually like when i test it tonight.

The issue with the ITX cards is they will run hot. My old 760 ITX would easily hit the 80deg cap and get throttled hard.

Of course, just install MSI Afterburner and turn the fan up.

yeah i have not yet had the chance to push it to see how it goes.

My Noctua cooler kept my CPU temp below 60 with prime95 going so i'm thrilled with that considering its size.

HOPEFULLY i can get a chance to test the card out tonight.

Testing it last night

CPU temp didn't top 60 and the GPU didnt top 70. So overall pretty happy.

I really like it, nice build! I've wanted to downsize my tower for a while now too.

What PSU did you use in there?

Changing my setup in the coming few days....

Going to the most expensive case i have bought by far!!!

NCase M1. This case is amazing as it fits a full length GPU and a 240mm Radiator. Inside this beaut ill be running a watercooled I7 6700k overclocked, 2x M.2 drives with a gtx 1080.  Thing will be a little monster. 

 

Image result for n case m1
