That's looking very well done, nice and understated !
This is one of the best S4 Mini's I've seen; certainly beats my work. The thermal padding for the M.2 is genius!
Where did you find that right angle connector for the SATA cable? That looks amazing, I could certainly use them!!!
Along those lines... Does anyone know what the heck the connectors that go TO the picoPSU are? I was thinking of making some of my own cables, but I don't know where to get the right headers for it. The power IN cables are soldered on I guess, but the other ones click on with some kind of molex I guess. If anyone has tried, do you think you could fit 18 AWG on there?
Any help is appreciated!
finished and completed build, added thermal pad material to the case touching the Samsung M.2 SSD.
I would,but I don't like the idea of the solid heatsink. I much prefer the heat pipes and the size of the AMP and at 8.27" maybe it just will fit!
Sorry, 8" is a hard cap.
The 1060 Mini might not need a fancy cooler; I've heard rumors it has a TDP of 100w. I don't know for sure, but it sounds reasonable.
Modern overtemp protection actually works, so this is very unlikely to cause any actual damage. However those temperatures, on the CPU and GPU in particular, are likely causing the CPU and GPU to throttle their performance back in order to avoid exceeding their maximum temperatures.a peak of 70C on my SSD and HDD, 95 on my CPU, and 90 on my GPU
