Hello all, I’m making a short worklog for a small mobile build I'll be working on. This originally was going to be a quick build but I got a couple ideas when I found the InWin Chopin case. I noticed that it had room on the bottom of the case for a long PSU but I figured it may be possible to replace it with a low-profile GPU and just use a HDPLEX instead of the included PSU. Other than that I want to try to make the build as cool and silent as possible, through the use of Noctua fans.
[CPU]: Intel i5 – 8400
[GPU]: Zotac GeoForce GTX 1050 Ti Low Pofile
[MOBO]: Asus Strix Z370-I
[RAM]: G.Skill TridentZ RGB 2×8 16GB - 3000
[NVMe]: Samsung 970 Evo 250GB
[SSD NVMe]: Samsung 860 Evo 1TB
[PSU]: HDPLEX 160W DC-ATX
[CASE]: InWin Chopin
[COOLER]: Noctua NH-L9i
[GPU FANS]: NF-A4x10 FLX x3
[CASE FAN]: NF-A4x10 FLX
[PSU FAN]: SoundOriginal Blower Fan
[RISER]: Fractal Design Flex VRC-25 PCIE x16
The theme for this build is going to coincidence with another build I am currently doing, COSMOS. I found that the colors of the Noctua fan strongly resemble that of Pluto, and also due to the builds size I decided to name it so and continue on with the cosmos based theme.
There won't be too many mods to the build and hopefully I should be able to get the GPU mounted in the case without increasing the size of the chassis.
I hope you guys enjoy the build, this shouldn't require too much time so it should be completed quickly.
