Zentiny [10.47L ITX]

Saw the Chieftec BT-04B case, liked the general size and shape, but didn't like the finish and sidepanel. So I cut out a window on the side and spraypainted the inner frame. Also dremeled away the 2.5" drive rails and spray painted the included PSU. Now this cheapo office case was all matte black and nicer on the eye :P

After usually building larger ATX and µATX builds, I wanted to get back down to ITX size again and see how much I could cram into a tiny case. Well, not as tiny as some of the premium SFF options anyway.
B450 ITX board leaves upgrade options for higher core count CPU later on (Ryzen 3000 should free up the 1700 currently running in my main rig). GPU is the toughest to get right here. The dimensions are tightly constrained, length cannot exceed 200mm, height cannot exceed 115mm. Even worse, if the PCIE power plug(s) point towards the side panel, height cannot exceed 113mm AND even then you still can't fit the power plugs directly, but will need to use very low profile adapters. I found some U-turn 6pin adapters on moddiy.com that served the purpose as they only add 7mm towards the sidepanel, which technically is still about 2-3mm too much, but since their outer face is foam, there's a little wiggle room. Even then though, the whole motherboard+tray are flexing a tad when the sidepanel is fully on.
