Tiny Beast

I tried to build the smallest most powerful gaming PC possible. First step was to find the right case - so i went for the DAN A4 (this build uses V2, i started with V1, now already building a new one in V3).

In order to proper cool the CPU i did my first delid using the tools from der8auer (Delid-Die-Mate-X) and installed the direct-die cooling frame. So the AIO Cooler from the Asetek 545LC is directly on the CPU die (with liquid metal in between). Even under heavy tests (Prime95, 3DMark etc.) i reached max 88°C.

On the Graphics Side the build starte with the GTX1080Ti FTW3 from EVGA, then i went for a TitanV and now just at Christmas I received my Titan RTX. I'm still working on proper settings to keep it both powerful and quiet, cause the Titan RTX is louder than the TitanV and the 1080Ti in this case, but optimizing takes some time.

Routing the cables for the PSU was quite tricky, but thanks to the very short custom length cables from CableMod I got it pretty nice and clean. Maybe I'll install some RGB lighting too, but that's it for now.
