    akid1 got a reaction from Allan in Simple & silent mini-ITX system   
    Hello!
     
    I just finished my last build, which is a small ITX one.
     
    As my little daughter always played the power and reset buttons on my older case, i decided to sell mainboard and case, and get me some mini-ITX stuff.
     
    Therefore is did quite a long research, as i wanted to have a very small case, which also looks a bit Apple-like - in case of materials. I instantly felt in love with the Raijintek Metis, which is a super cheap full-aluminium case.
     
    I added the following components:
     
    Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97N-WIFI (flashed with Ozmosis)
    CPU: Intel i5-4460
    CPU cooler: Alpenföhn Brocken Eco
    GPU: internal Intel HD 4600
    Memory: G.Skill 2x 8 GB
    Power supply: BeQuiet e9 480w modular
    Wifi-card: TP-Link TP-WDN3800
    Bluetooth: Gmyle Micro
    SSD for OSX: Samsung Evo 850 - 256GB
    SSD for Windows: Adata S510 - 120GB
     
    The build took some time, as there is not much of space inside. Good thing is, that you could remove top and bottom parts as well as the side parts. The system is running really quiet and surprisingly also quite cool - i had read several guys which where complaining about massive temperature problems. For me, the crucial part was to change the fans to suck air in, only the power supplys fan is now used as an outtake. I never thought that this would be enough, but i´m running with low temperatures for such as small case.
     
    Ok, long story short - here are the pictures ;-)
     

     
    I hope you like my build, please feel free to ask questions and stuff. Please forgive my english, as it is not my native language - thanks :-)
