Formd T1 SFF Build

Build Description

I built this pc as an upgrade over my i7 6700 build. Before this build I had solely used intel for my cpus in my last three systems but when Ryzen came out strong I knew it would be in my next system. I mostly use this system to game at 1080p 144hz with two other 1080p 60hz monitors (3 total monitors), though I hope to get a better graphics card one day (don't we all) and go up to 1440p.

This pc took a good amount of planning. I had to get custom length cables made, pick ram and aio that would fit in the case's cpu cooler clearance constraints, and find work arounds for certain roadblocks. One roadblock I had was mounting the 2.5 ssd in the case. This case can fit a 2.5 drive easily but I put an rgb strip in the section meant for the drive so I had to sandwich it in to the left of the powersupply. I originally had 2 x 1tb m.2s in the case (1 intel drive and 1 western digital drive) but I filled most of that within a year and added another 1tb externally (munskin drive) via a usb enclosure. I recently was gifted a 4tb 2.5 drive so I crammed that in the case to do all my data hoarding. To fit it I had a custom length power cable and ordered a super slim silverstone sata cable.

Favorite Feature

I love the case itself. It was difficult to get but it is well designed in my opinion, high quality, and all around my favorite case I've ever used. The modularity is a super cool thing in such a small case.
