Iron Core

This is my "portable" weapon. It was conceived as a rough backup system, for playing with emulators (ps2, wii, wiiu, etc) with friends, and as a network server, but then I thought it was a shame not to give some attention to this baby too, and I wanted to do an itx build really bad lol. So I used some components that came from one of the old iterations of my main build, including my beloved 4770K, 16 GB of Fury and the decomissioned XTR 550W with its black and orange Cablemod kit (those who already saw my main build could sense a theme here...). The previous RX 580 was "binned" in favour of the new RTX 2060 I got at launch, which I knew was perfect for this machine the day it was officialy revealed, and the Founders design is so sexy. It's a shame its power delivery section is somehow lackluster.

I went purposedly with an oversized cpu cooler like the Dark Rock Pro 4 because I saw something similar on the web and I liked how it looked, so i removed the transparent window from the upper panel so that it could fit, even though it's been a damn close call for the rear clearance, but everything turned out great. Also, I left the gpu side panel off because it looks so much better imho.

The rear wing is for added downforce, to improve cornering speed. Obviously.
