I have been working since last summer on compacting my main pc from a full sized TJ07 to a mini-itx Ncase M1 case and finaly stage 1 is complete.

It’s a thight fit, but I definately worth the hours put into it.

Next stage will be to fully watercool both CPU and GPU again like it was in the TJ07, can feel the gray hairs sneaking up on me allready.

Specs:

  • Case: Ncase M1 v2.0.
  • Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VII Impact.
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790k.
  • RAM: 16GB (2x 8GB Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3-2400 Red).
  • GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 something something (I forgot the rest).
  • Storage: 256GB Samsung SSD 830 (OS).
  • Storage: 512GB Samsung SSD 830 (VMs).
  • Storage: 512GB Crucial MX100 (Games).
  • Storage: 2TB Hitachi Deskstar 7200rpm (Storage dump).
  • PSU: Silverstone SX600-G v1.1 (had a v1.0 first that died after a few weeks…)
  • Cooling: Corsair Hydro Series H105 with 2x Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition fans.
  • Audio: Audioengine D1 USB DAC
  • Displays: 2x Dell U2412M lovely displays.
  • Keyboard: Roccat Isku FX
  • Mouse: Razer Mamba 2012

Nice compact beast that covers most my gaming and basic virtualization needs.
Any heavy virtualization I do on my Lab Cluster anyways.
(which I probably will make an updated post about in the future.)

Pictures below!

(Should’ve had some pictures of the TJ07 for comparision, forgot to take some before stripping it…)
