SFF Forum Giveaway: Win an ASRock Fatal1ty X370-Gaming ITX/AC, or a surprise swag package!

Apologies for the wait on this, everyone, but I think you'll agree that it has been worth it! As was previously announced a few weeks ago, I'm excited to launch our first-ever giveaway of a motherboard, and a really solid one at that: the ASRock Fatal1ty X370-Gaming ITX/AC.



John's excellent review of this board (alongside its sibling AB350 variant) is available here. As of this posting, this board is available on Amazon for a tad below $160. Overall, the board is an excellent entry into the AM4 ITX space, and makes for a solid platform with which to construct a Ryzen rig. We can't wait to send it along to a good home.

But wait, there's more! We're breaking open the SFF Network Swag Vault (read: @PlayfulPhoenix's closet) and drawing from some of the piles of gear that we received from companies during Computex 2017. We have three swag packages ready to ship that contain a selection gear from the likes of Biostar, Corsair, FSP, Noctua, SilverStone, and Zotac. A motherboard they may not be, but some of this stuff is pretty neat - my particular favorite has to be the miniature Noctua fan keychains, though!



So how do you enter the giveaway? Simple: just post on this thread, sharing your current build or one you're planning to create! Using Random.org, we will select our winners at 8PM EST on October 20th.

This giveaway is open worldwide, except where prohibited. No purchase necessary, and the usual T+C's apply.

I did a google on ML08 mods

A very creative person wedged a 60mm fan against the psu cables. This solved the temperature problem on the ML08! Excellent idea!! Take a look here

My current PC is a Intel i7-6700K @4.3GHz cooled by a Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B with a 140mm Noctua Fan on an Asus z170i.
Memory/storage wise it's sporting 32GB of some random cheap-ass Memory clocked at 2600Mhz and a 500GB Samsung 950 EVO.
A Gainward GTX1070 Phoenix running at 2100Mhz Core / 4200Mhz Memory and a SeaSonic Platinum Fanless PSU round out the build.

All that is running in a custom, half-finished 11litre case with all fans spinning below 1000rpm with CPU/GPU even under stress not exceeding 55°C.

Current Rig
CPU: Intel i7 6700T
Cooler: Noctua NH-L9i
RAM: 2x16gb DDR4 2400MHz G.Skill Aegis
Mobo: Gigabyte B150N Phoenix-Wifi
GPU: EVGA 1060 6GB
PSU: Z4-ATX-200 200W PicoPSU
Power Brick: HP 230W
SSD: Intel 600p 512GB M.2, Sandisk Extreme 240GB
HDD: 3TB Seagate 2.5"
Case: NFC S4 Mini

It runs stable, but only if the GPU power target is set to something low like 50%. Which is fine, saves on my power bills :) . Sort of surprised as it's been over half a year and nothing's blown up what with my cable splicing and all. I plan to buy the Dell 330W in the future to see if it's the brick or the picopsu that's holding things up.

Current computer is an ASUS zenbook UX303UB as I was moving a lot the last two years. I am currently planning to build a mitx PC and that's why I'm lurking a lot on the forum.

Current project is:
Case: Fire's MI-6
Motherboard: ASUS B350 itx or ASROCK B350 itx
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 or 1600x with good offer
Cooler: Noctua NH-L12
GPU: Hesitating between RX570 itx or 1060 3gb ITX (depending on what I will find)
SSD: 2* 500GB Samsung EVO 960

Hey uhh drop me completely from this draw. I don't think I can afford to build out another PC this year, LOL. Sorry if it confuses you guys ,_,

gonna copypaste that lower third and add a bit:
  • i7-6800K
    • running at stock because apparently slime rancher doesn't like the slight OC instability. also staying there just in case it happens for other programs untill I can figure out if it's not cooling enough or I lost the lottery hard
    • There's the 8700K now, but I'm still okay up to the point intel decides the mainstream users should get 28 PCIe lanes.
  • noctua NH-C14S
    • on a separate note: I'm looking into a small / medium-flat CPU cooler as a nice-to-have for when another project only comes with an intel box cooler. so far I'm waiting for Cryorig's copper lineup to materialise, and @Kmpkt's SFF cooler as well
    • maybe on the old rig I still haven't got a disk to run on too
  • ASUS X99M WS
    • kinda lamenting that the m.2 slot on the board only does PCIe 2.0. x2.
    • dammit I wish ASUS did more boards to that finpipe style.
  • Palit GTX 1060 6G Dual Fan
    • that rumor of the 1070ti sounds a bit enticing though.
    • going on this bent for a while: kinda amused that nvidia redid their model tiers within the same generation
  • Silverstone SX 700LPT
    • replaced fan with a Noctua NF-A12x15 PWM controlled by the motherboard
    • tiny! nice to hold on hand! not as small as regular SFX PSUs, but still much smaller than that brick we call ATX
  • Corsair Vengeance LPX 4x 8GB 3000mhz (edit: typo)
    • not running at full speed because see CPU
  • some m.2 drives
    • probably one NVMe SSD
    • Previously on Gear Acquisition Syndrome: Startech's 3.5" 4-stick SATA M.2 bay (OEM probably Addonics). It's things like these that makes me want to switch from 2.5" disks to M.2 sticks exclusively
    • maybe i'll use regular disk form factors for a NAS instead
All parted out for a:
  • KI Cerberus
    • c:
    • currently in a HAF XB
So that's my halfstation PC. Muscle for 3D, video and possibly image processing work, and occasionally the few games (imagine buff guy not using a trolley to carry heavy stuff to checkout in a mart or grocer's)

A bit off topic: someone I know just asked me for build advice, and when I suggested an R7 he was like "everyone at work thinks AMD CPUs are unstable and are still kinda wary of them now, so umm uhhh yeah...?" how do i even

EDIT: to go on a bit more: what would I do with an extra ITX PC? travel rig, most probably. Looking to make the Cerberus travel worthy, but for now most lower volume ITX cases are backpack friendly, so yeah.

Current Rig:

CPU: 2500k @ 4.5GHz (started at 4.7-4.8GHz but CPU degradation... @ 1.4V) Cooled by an old Thermaltake 360mm radiator with 3 x NF-P12 and a P500 pump (D5 waiting to get implemented)
GPU: 280X @ 1.150GHz Cooled by 3 Cooler Master 120mm Fans (stock fans are extremely anemic)
Mobo: MSI z77a-g43 (On third RMA due to blown VRM's :D)
SSD: Intel 520 120GB (Samsung XS1715 800GB waiting in a drawer for a compatible platform)
HDD:
  1. Samsung HD204UI (2TB)
  2. Toshiba DT01ACA300 (3TB)
RAM: Klevv 16GB DDR3 1866Mhz Kit
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-400CX
Case: Cooler Master Wavemaster
