FEATURE PLS

Honestly, I'm absolutely loving every aspect of your setup.

One question, how does the PSU work?

Basically it's a DC to DC converter, the actual power supply is an external power brick, pretty much like a laptop charger, that connects to the picoPSU that plugs in directly to the motherboard and has all the essential power connectors that you'd find on a regular PSU like SATA, ATX12V and such. They're mostly aimed for small cases like these that can't fit an internal PSU.

I got broken Pico (sad). Inside BIOS/POST screens I saw artefacts. It was turning on once and after that - you need to wait 5-10 minutes (after PC shut down) for next power up.
I'm using now Pico's Brick for 160W and custom power adapter for 120W http://prntscr.com/e165sw And It's working amazing now. I'm not recommending Pico at all. It's to expensive for it's quality (contacts, cables, so on... )

Hi, I have very similar build running El Capitan (10.11.6). I use chinese PicoPsu analog and it works fine. I think additional case coolers are not needed in this build. I am curious what app do you use to trace temperatures (picture 9)?

Great build, thanks for posting. Does this build ever overheat for you? There ends up being only a few millimeters between the Noctua fan and the case's ceiling - even with the aluminum ssd bracket off. Since there's so little room for the cooler to push, the cpu occasionally overheats (with the case's lid off, there's no issue). I am on an i7 Kaby Lake which is little more demanding I suppose

Hi. No overheat at all. Max CPU temp. which I had – was +67 degrees of Celsius (after 2 hours of playing "heroes of the storm"). Two side fans (i have 40mm, but 50mm or 60mm will fits too) doing a great job.
