Default mITX build Coolermaster Elite 120

Put together this little build yesterday!
i7 3770K Gigabyte GA-H77N-Wifi Patriot Viper 8GB DDR3 1600MHz


Cant really see it there but i put in a Seagate 500GB momentus XT and you can see the 3TB Barracuda XT

This is where it gets tricky! once you get the power supply in there

had to use the stock cooler because my h100 will obviously not fit haha

This is the best i could do with the cables

Finished!

Small and very powerful in this case. Nice build. Is the only case fan the 120mm in the center? What are CPU and GPU temps like?

There is a 120mm in the very front and then one after the drive cage. Also a small 70ishmm fan on the side
I ran furmark and intelburntest at the same time both at max settings for an hour and the cpu got pretty hot. like 89c-92c and the gpu was at around 79c-85c but i cant imagine the cpu will ever be that stressed in normal games.

Yikes. Let us know how it does under normal use for temps. I wouldn't run it consistently that hot if it was my computer. It looks great though.

What direction you have the airflow from each fan going?

It has to be at stock clocks, it's an H77 board.

Ah, gotcha. I'm new to the 77 chipset, and I don't know the ins and outs fully yet!

On a different note, you now have a new use for your SFF PC...Put a pan of water on top of it and make some tea, LOL!

Ive got a similar build. Except I yanked out my front HDD cage to put my h80i in the front. I suggest to battle the heat and noise issues's (well the ones I had anyways) is to flip the 80mm fan next to the mobo to exhaust, and set the front fan's to exhaust as well. With this setup, my chip is @ 4.6ghz 1.2v (3570k) and the gpu is left untouched. Temps are about 65 after gaming for a few hours with the h80i set to quiet 850rpm speeds. The gpu seems to run pretty cool and quiet as well.

I recently did a mod on our Elite 120 to adjust support for a DIY 120 rad setup. I'll post the pics up soon. It voids your warranty like no other, but it's an interesting option to think about with a case this inexpensive.
