    Need help finding a console like pc or mini pc or whatever they are called?

    https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6J4w8Y You can build your own. G4560 + RX 570 is a little weaker than Xbox One X. For PCs, you generally pay upfront $100-200 if you're looking for same performance, that is saved back through PC sales and mostly free online.

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Nothing better than the Noctua for air cooling. Consider making some kind of shroud for the cooler so that it is restricted to only taking in cool air.

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Tip: don't get the M22. Get the rosewill version which had a slimmer cpu block. Here is mine with the rosewill PB120. Using a thermalright fan to cool the motherboard area. 65C gaming run on 2600X. Is a pain to install. Had to remove the PCIE riser board. I recommend Dancase shave off 2mm...

    5L case - 120mm AIO, Flex ATX, ITX GPU

    I had a 4L design, but that is on hold. For my second project, I am trying to differentiate from L4. I will likely revisit a design similar to L4 in the future, but I'd like a design that i can also use as a daily driver. Up to 84mm CPU cooler with LP or reference height GPU. FLEX ATX /...

    3L ITX Case with Meanwell Support

    Yeah. It'll be powder coated. Since I'm doing small runs there will be more color choices than just black. For the sample, I'm trying to go for a two tone color scheme. The ISK does have the shortfall of not being well ventilated as well. I'll have to think about implementing Vesa mount but...

    Check my HTPC Build

    Depending on your noise requirements, you can go for a 450W bronze power supply. Usually it is quiet at the couch distance unless you have a very quiet room. Otherwise looks pretty good.

    Check my HTPC Build

    1. You don't really need an nvme drive. A sata based drive is plenty fast. 2. A 650W gold psu is not necessary for a cpu that consumes 120W. 3. RAM performance is important but you should be looking for the best value at speeds. You don't nearly as much performance when you aren't playing games.

    TR 2 32 core and HDPLEX

    By the time you hook up 3 hdplex (not that you should) a corsair SF600 is more efficient in both power regulation and space.

    The 4L case: The future of gaming PCs or too much compromise required?

    I think 4L is my goal as well. I'd love to design one that can handle a 1080 and a 6 core cpu. I think the ventilation design can be massively improved but a layout like custom mod that outlined above is the only way. Baby steps. :)
