Pluto - mini itx chopin gpu mod

Hello all, This is a small mobile build I completed. This originally was going to be a quick build but I got a couple ideas when I found the InWin Chopin case. I noticed that it had room on the bottom of the case for a long PSU but I figured it may be possible to replace it with a low-profile GPU and just use a HDPLEX instead of the included PSU. Other than that I want to try to make the build as cool and silent as possible, through the use of Noctua fans.

The theme for this build is going to coincidence with another build I am currently doing, COSMOS. I found that the colors of the Noctua fan strongly resemble that of Pluto, and also due to the builds size I decided to name it so and continue on with the cosmos based theme.

The Specs list the GPU as MINI but it is: Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Low Profile, Just waiting for the part to get approved

Thanks all.
