This is my first ever PC build I made for the purpose of 3d Modeling, Rendering, Game Art, and general CG stuff. Portfolio
I name it Onyx because it's a cool gemstone thats dark and has a white specular on top of it. My build kinda resemble the look of it, as it is mostly dark, with a white accent from the white VGA.
I decided on a Mini-ITX build because i want to bring it whenever i move country to work. The internals definitely are my dream build scenario, however, as much as i love the case, I still feel it can get thinner if I use crowdfunded case such as Loque Ghost, DAN SFX Case, or NFC S4 mini case.
Overall, a lot of hope with what this gem could do :>
Will do CPU and GPU temperature test once I obtain my custom dust filter
Just got my dust filter! I 0.6mm too small, but **** it.
I included some closeup for the intake :> All intake now dustprrof hehe, I'll update the dust buildup in one year, if I remember hehe
I was not that impressed with the thermals.
I thought buy placing a fan intake in the front, even at full load the air was going to exhaust on the right side of the panel. But i guess hot air REALLY goes up. The airflow is blocked by the PSU, making the front grill holes really hot, on the part that isn't blocked by the PSU.
On Prime95 it peaks at 85, which a lot of people said is unreasonable. On cinebench it peaks around 72, so it's still okay imho.
On typical usage, i get a lot of air out of the side panel, but not when its hot. I guess Loque Ghost case is still the better option if i were to have such choice.
But nevertheless, this case looks stunning and the performance is still impressive despite its small chassis.
GPU temp on GPUTest, peaks at 79. It gets quiet loud but it gets the job done, so no complains here.
I have some questions tho, would be great if someone can reccomend me some tips on this:
Now i know the exhaust for CPU is mainly on top while its hot. Should i remove the dust filter on top?
Shouldi turn the PSU upsidedown so that the PSU will help exhaust the heat from the CPU? Will that damage the PSU>
A really nice cooler, meet my expectation, with the really silent noise.
It's an awesome motherboard. I love the black heat sink and the port selection are great! All USB 3.0 with 1 USB-C. The main awesome thing is the wifi antenna thats freakin magnetic!!
Pro: - Magnet wifi antenna - Port selection
Cons: - M.2 below the motherboard, making it possibly hot for certain case (for my case, (pun intended) SG13 is helding out okay)
Overall quite coo, but sometimes got a bit of squeking noise when starting a program.
When i was building this pc in the store, all people look at this case and they were all amazed by how small the case is. It's definitely eye-catching and the design is super well-built.
Just a bit worried cuz theres no dust filter, which i solve buy ordering a custom made one.
It's fully made from aluminium, so my magnetic wifi antenna can stick. It's a pleasure to see it.
I just realize that u can disable internet explorer in control panel.
Awesome fan c: abit hard to moung cuz the case is small, but the noise is really low.
Simply gorgeus to look at. I havent done any color calibration, but the display is so stunning that you would not even look at the case at all
