Description

Hi guys,

Decided to resell my old setup Core i5 / R9 390 VaporX setup with big CoolerMaster HAF932 case.

So, this is my new ITX RIG from the end of 2018. Nothing original, just some good components to be quiet the next 5 years :)

Temps are really good even if in this tiny space. No overclocked CPU.

Big thanks to Kevin DOLAN for his amazing mini ITX case. I love the Lazer3d LZ7. Extremely compact, beautiful design, it is a piece of art compare to my other old cases !

This is my Gaming / Edits Adobe Premiere Rig.

Peace !

How do your temps come out with the case and everything?

s00lfly submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

I invite you to read the Tek Everything's review : https://tekeverything.com/lazer3d-lz7-mini-itx-case-review/ He talk about temps with an OC Core i7

Dmolitor 3 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

No not for the processor my friend, just your system temps under load.

s00lfly submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

I have not yet taken the time to check temps, sorry. But, the thing I can say for the moment is my OS is stable in heavy load and good performances (Battlefield V Ultra settings @1080p, Rendering in Premiere Pro with 2.7K @30fps footages)

The CPU should be fine, it’s the ITX GPU that will get toasty.

And that NVMe drive on the back of the motherboard is going to thermal throttle hard

TheDankKn1ght 2 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Not sure about that.... the 970 is cooler than most NVMe's and even under full load my XPG6000 (An SSD that comes with an attachable heatsink mind you) doesn't even come close to throttling range

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/samsung-970-evo-ssd-review,5573.html

And yet it still gets hot. Then you add the fact it’s mounted to the rear of an ITX motherboard in a case that has it flat against a panel with zero direct airflow.

While generally thermal throttling in a standard case won’t happen due to case airflow and taking a substantial load to push the thermal guard, this isn’t true for ITX cases with restrictive airflow like this one.

At first I thought, "theres no way that will fit in there ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)". Is it the same size as a GameCube? it's very cute.

s00lfly submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks man :)

That box build is everything honestly I just love it so much haha! Great Job nonetheless!

Thanks man :)

Great pictures of the build process. You also did as good a job on the cable management as I think is possible in that case with that PSU. That Gigabyte 1080 is absolutely perfect in this case. Also, very solid aesthetic choices. I hope it does last you five or more years!

s00lfly submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks man :) Cable management is not actualy perfect but I will work on it lately with custom PSU cables ;)

Nice case!

You should consider making the first picture the final build, that way people can see what it looks like from the main page.

s00lfly submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Edited :) Thanks for the advice and your comment ;)

What a find on that 1080 mini!! I've been looking for a deal on one of those for a long time. Great job tucking those wires, everything looks great. I really like the wood panels on these cases! +1

Love the case. I did my first build on a different mini itx, but my next one will be 100% with the Laser3D

s00lfly submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Best compact mini-ITX case for sure !

The wood is solid real Walnut, 5mm sheet.

i'm located in the US. where did do buy your case? the only site i've seen stock it is overclockers.co.uk and they don't ship to the US. (the only thing stopping from getting the Lazer3D during my build was the shipping)

Lazer3D 2 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Overclockers UK have shipping available to the US using DHL Worldwide Express service
