XTIA XPROTO

The case isn't actually custom. It is an xproto case from xtia. You can find them through google.

Since this is the first question I always get.. As of writing this I had this pc for 3 months now and there is no noticeable amount of dust. Whenever it does eventually get dusty I can just carry it outside and blow it with compressed air.

I was on a stationary docked laptop before this. My dream pc case for years (still is) has been the dancase A4 sfx but with the high wattage 3000 series cards coming out I was worried about noise and temps. I was going to get a NR200 but the amount of desk space used was just too much for me. Coming from a loud laptop I wanted something as quiet as possible and the combination of the vertical layout and open air design of the xtia xproto was a perfect match for me.

I'm using three 12" rgb strips and my motherboard's built in lighting. One strip is just inside between the two panels, one is behind the gpu to give it an underglow effect, and one is facing out behind the case to light up the wall. I put white tape on the 3080 to improve the underglow effect since the card is so black lol.

One mod I did in order to flip the psu (purely for aesthetics) was file out a little of the psu mounting bracket. Wei at xtia told me that their latest batch of cases already have this design change implemented.

I stole the usb hub front io idea from another xproto post I saw. One other thing I did was get this 2 port usb thing. One end snakes out the bottom and the other is connected to the front usb hub. This means I don't need a usb ribbon cable extension like i've seen on other xprotos.
