    i actually build all the cables myself staying flexible as possible in case of hardware change, upgrades etc

    MDPC-X is also a good resource for custom cable sleeving

    Where did you get this beauty? I've bought A4 a few days ago, running stock intel cooler and looking for some powerful heatsink. I can't find it in Germany :(

    Hi all,

    Being a long time lurker around these here forums, I just wanted to share my first ever SFF build with you all.

    It's been a really fun process searching for and picking out parts and building in such a small enclosing. I'm loving my A4.

    CPU: i7-9700K (Stock)
    CPU Cooler: Alpenföhn Black Ridge
    MOBO: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-I GAMING
    GPU: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Windforce OC
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB 3000MHz DDR4 CL15
    PSU: Corsair SF600
    Storage: Samsung 970 PRO 1TB NVMe M.2

    I just finished the build so these are the initial temps.

    Temps idle:
    CPU: 33°
    GPU: 42°
    SSD: 38°
    MOBO: 36°

    Temps Gaming (PUBG @ 1440p):
    CPU: 75°
    GPU: 83°
    SSD: 57°
    MOBO: 56°

    Avg fps: 176

    It will not be used for anything more taxing than gaming, so I wont be going through CPU intensive benchmarks, but I would like to play around with limiting the TDP of the CPU.

    Even though 75° isn't too bad, the sound is currently like a jet engine when in-game.

    replace the fan of the black ridge with an Noctua NF9x14 then the sound should be better.

    Yeah I was actually thinking about doing just that. Might take the temps down a little as well.
