    Closed (SOLD) Intel Skull Canyon NUC6i7KYK + G.SKILL Ripjaws 32GB 2133MHZ CL15 1.2V

    Selling my old NUC, comes with RAM pre installed. I used it as a portable pc, hence some of the marks and scratches on it. The power button has lost a great deal of paint, but still works fine. The computer will need cleaning, an M.2 and a new operating system. Great for a modding project. Be...

The specs are: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Garrzilla/saved/VYkgLk I am using an LP53 heatsink with the A9x14 fan attached. I tried re-seating the cooler, putting new thermal paste, offset the voltage by -0.100V...

    News [TPU] ASUS Intros Prime H310T Motherboard (Thin ITX)

    https://www.techpowerup.com/244107/asus-intros-prime-h310t-motherboard Oh boy! Even though it doesn't have a PCIe 4x slot it does have the M.2 4x slot so there are GPU options for us. I'd love to snatch up one of those if only to be able to go 6-core in the future on Thin ITX.

    Z370 Kimera Cerberus Build

    I have been doing custom watercooled builds for the last 5 years in fairly large cases. This is my first SFF build. I wanted to cram as much power as possible into a small enclosure. I am not a fan of AIOs so I've decided to go with air cooling for this build. Case : Kimera Cerberus CPU : 8700k...

    Rumor Hades Canyon: upcoming NUC with dGPU support?!

    Via CNX. With support for what appears to be a full power -K CPU, Optane, Thunderbolt, and a dGPU. Maybe Intel took note of what certain individuals have done with Skull Canyon and 5x5/STX boards and GPUs.

    CPU 10nm cpu

    So apparently Intel will release their 10nm Cannon Lake in 2017, but will it be the 45W version only? Or will they also have serious desktop CPUs? This will make a big impact on the SFF community, no? Stronger CPU with less thermal issues? We can use smaller coolers :) When do you expect 65W...
