Description

This is my build in the SFF Kolink Rocket. Some people call it the DAN-case ripoff. I think it's a great case for a much cheaper price. Build quality is really good!

Cable-management is a bit hard but doable when you take your time. The PSU I used is probably the best one to take because of the short cables, but aren't that flexible.

Temperatures are good. The Noctua is by far the best cooler you can get that fits in this case (or the DAN).

The Kolink Rocket comes with a pre-installed 80mm fan above the MB tray. It's pretty useless tho. The PCI rise-cable, that comes with the case, doesn't fit properly with the fan on it's place. So I removed the fan.

The STRIX 1060 (secondhand) will be upgraded for a 1070Ti in the near future. Also the monitor, keyboard and mouse are from my old setup.

Feel free to ask questions about the build!

Awesome build, looks great. Also I must have that clock where did you get it from?

Thanks! Haha the clock is the Karlsson Boxed Flip, a Dutch brand. Not sure if they sell it worldwide.

Very nice build! How is the motherboard with everything else? I am considering this motherboard but I can't find it on sale. I have the same RAM and CPU, and a mini ITX version of the 1060 6GB.

Thanks! Motherboard works great with the components. The RAM runs stable at 3000Mhz with the build-in XMP profile (bios). The board has a power circuit that can handle a 2700X. So the 2600 is a piece of cake.

Also: M.2 slot, RGB and aRGB header, ALC1220 audio chip (top-end). Only downside is that it has no USB Type-C headers on the board, just 1 Type-C port on the back. Keep that in mind when buying a case with typ-c ports on the frontpanel.

Great board for semi high-end ITX systems. Would recommend.

That's good to hear, I was checking the memory compatibility list and read a lot of memory horror stories from Ryzen users. I ordered the mobo and it will be here in a few days so I can finish my build this weekend. Enjoy the PC!

The horror stories are mostly from the first gen Ryzens. Ryzen 2nd gen is more optimized. Which memory did you buy? If you bought the same as I am using, it will work 100% guaranteed. Let me know when you finished your build.

"Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz C15 Desktop Memory Kit - Black"

Is it the same as yours? Thanks for following up by the way. Mobo should be here by tomorrow at the latest.

Yup, thats the same kit :). Only thing you need to do is selecting the XMP profile in the bios to let it run at 3000Mhz.

Amazing build! Where did you buy the case from ?! I see it on overclockers uk (at GBP 159, how did you manage to get it for $140 ?!) but then I feel i can get this cheaper from singapore.

Thanks! Bought the case at a webshop in the Netherlands. I’m looking at the price chart right now and see that the price has gone up on december 11th. Cheapest right now is about €153,- but delivery time is more than 12 days

Thanks for replying man! quick one did you end up using the riser cable that came with the case ? How's it performing ? p.s. - sexy a build :)

  • 14 months ago

No problem :). Yeah I used the riser that came with the case. It gets the job done. Good quality cable. The only thing is: The case comes with a pre-installed 80mm casefan just above the MB tray. When routing the riser cable underneath the MB en connecting it to the PCI-e slot, the riser cable makes contact with the fan. So I removed the casefan. Not sure if I did something wrong when routing the cable. The cable is just really stiff. Will take a look at it again when installing a new videocard.

And thanks again!

I love your build! I'm surprised to see the Strix fit into this tiny case. How hard was that to pull off? I'm looking to build a 2nd system that will share gpu with my main system but that's a strix 1080ti. I'm wondering if there's enough clearance to put that in the Rocket.

Sorry for the late response, but thanks! The strix 1080ti will NOT fit in the Kolink Rocket. The shroud is to bulky. Same goes for the strix 1070Ti or the strix RTX cards. The strix 1060, strix 1070 and strix 1080 will fit. The max card thickness/height you can fit in the rocket is about 41 mm or 4.1 cm. Otherwise the sidepanel won't fit anymore. I measured it myself cause they don't mention it anywhere... If you take the sidepanel off, you can fit any card you want tho.

Thanks for the reply! That's actually not a huge deal as that card would probably get way too hot in such a case anyway. I'll keep it in mind if I do decide to get this case :)
