Blackbox

This is my first SFF build where I've used a proper SFF case; my last PC was an mITX build in a mid-tower ATX case that was pretty great but I just don't like the wasted space. I understand now that it is helpful to have the extra airflow for cooling. Still, it won't deter me from pursuing a low unused-volume case with great cooling!

I'm generally a very pragmatic person so I didn't put a tonne of effort into coordinating the aesthetics for this build, plus I didn't want to wait for black/silver RAM to come in-stock just so things would match. I think overall the aesthetic is pleasing though I would like to use this build as a learning opportunity for future ones.

My plans moving forward with this build are to engage in what most would consider the needlessly difficult task of watercooling the Lian-Li TU150. Sure, there are practically zero good places to put a decent sized radiator without heavily modifying the case, but I'm skill-lessly hopeful that I can pull of something that is capable of keeping my GPU below 75C and fan noise to a minimum. I might be barking up the wrong tree but it's worth a shot!

Thanks for reading, I hope you like it!
