Just Your Everyday Dan Case A4 Build

I got into the SFFPC community when it all started with the the r/sffpc subreddit. I immediately fell in love with the small compact designs and knew I had to get one for myself. I was looking everywhere for a premium SFF case, but most places were sold out or unavailable. But after a few weeks, the Dan Case A4 was available on the website, I was so excited and purchased it right away. So I bought some new parts like the CPU, Motherboard, CPU cooler, RAM, Intel SSD, and PSU because it was a totally different case that needed compact components. And also bought some used parts I found online, like the Samsung SSD, GTX 1070, and the Noctua fans. Fortunately, I was able to find most of the parts for a discounted price. The Dan Case A4 with the Asetek AIO made it really difficult for the power cables to get in, so I did a bit of research and discovered the LoserCard mod, which was about making your own custom length cables. This took a really long time for me, because I didn't have much experience in crimping. However, once I got all the parts and cables finished, I put them all together. Temps were really great, especially the CPU, never went over 65C. Overall, even though the Dan Case A4 was about $250, I have to say it was worth it.
