DANKMACHINE 2.0

This is my second custom built computer since the original DANKMACHINE 1.0

My goal was to build a very compact and powerful machine that could run any game comfortably and not take up my entire desk. I first saw this "hotbox" concept on Paul's Hardware Youtube channel which inspired me to build my own version.

The performance to size ratio of computer components keep getting smaller; a compact computer built today can outperform any beast built just a few years ago. This Mini-ITX system is almost 60% more powerful than my previous PC that was built five years ago. It is twice as small than a full tower case, yet it doesn't compromise on either performance or cooling.
