    How do you use 4x gpus on a mITX? Can't be running full speed.

    I've seen your build over in case modding; you should post a photo of it here to give these numbers some well-deserved context.

    I clicked on this thread expecting to see an enclosed mITX case. Stupid me.

    It's an open air case so of course cooling isn't an issue. I mean, congrats, it's an impressive CB20 score.

    ASUS WS C621E SAGE accommodates up to four dual-width graphic cards with a four true PCIe Gen3 x16 link to unleash maximum graphic performance.

    title says "on" mitx. which implies on a mitx motherboard. it is not. it is "in" a modded? mitx case which is open air so no real braggin rights that i see...

    That's awesome but sheesh that mITX case is larger than some ATX cases I've owned.

    Great and all, but what's with the trash bin on your desk? Get rid of it before it smells like a rotten apple. This is [H]!

    I was gonna install a Raspberry Pi 3 into a broken Ibanez 'Tube Screamer' floor pedal, but now I'm gonna go back to playing Freecell.

    And only one monitor? What's the rig do? (like..why? or just cause you can/wanted to?)

    I also thought that was a trash can. No...subwoofer. Wait, the clear speakers have a little sub it looks like on the other side. WHY does he have a trash-can on his desk?

    As a SFF elitist at times I’m not going to pick this beauty apart on technicalities either.

    Awesome build and the Performance Per Liter is outstanding.—-that’s SFF enough for me!

    SFF in that you'd normally slap that behemoth in a 4U slab.

    Yeah, it's definitely not a sub 20L build, but it is well executed and as a very dense footprint

    Ok, someone has to say it. With as clean of a work area as that, with the clear speakers and the glass desk, there should be some better cable management there. :)

    Nice build btw.

    First off, this is a amazing build!
    The only nit-pick is just on the title, still. (Really cannot be IN a mITX case when major components are mounted outside of the 'enclosed' space. Like I said, just a nit to pick)

    I find I can present the opposite, though not in pictures. In preparation of my next build, I've moved components from by previous build that was completely in a Cooler Master Elite 130, into a Corsair Carbide Air 540. Yup, a mITX motherboard & RTX2080 in an E-ATX case. (Waiting for July)

    My original attempt would have been cool if I had finished it. but I could not get it right. I had an enclosed SFF case,- I had bent metal out of the sides and top with a can opener and had components looking like they broke through the case in all directions- but it wasn’t elegant and my cable management was up against the laws of physics, so, I went to plan B

    That is the biggest M-ITX case I've seen.

    Yes actually,
    Ray Tracing is alive and well in Metro Exodus at 4k on my 4 Titan Vs.I'm sure ray tracing will eventually get better, but I'm not sold on it yet.

    I'm wondering how the 7700k got a score of 2420 at 4.2 Ghz.
    My 7700K is clocked to 5Ghz and I barely get a score of 1040.
