    true true, but they fans are still ugly ;)

    I actually love the build of the fans, they are very different, Noctua said in 2020 the will manufacture them black

    ...am I being teased?

    Nice build, but calling that case a MiniITX case is a stretch.

    I agree, but the manufacturer sells it as a mini itx and it only has holes for a mini itx board.... till I got a hold of it of course ;)

    12k seems a bit pricey (mine was sorta free)

    I noticed the box in the pic is not signed,

    12k..... (ponders briefly selling his... then decides he’d rather keep it)

    I would love to have more, but the price of a new economy car I can’t see myself partying the money even if the end selling price would be 5-7k

    But awesome find none the less

    Can I ask a stupid question here: Why not turn the heatsinks to exhaust hot air up? It's not like you're constrained by typical case front to back airflow... You probably could even get away with only one fan per heatsink reducing noise.

    I did some optimizations, here is the new Cinebench R20 score, not bad for a small little build.

    small upgrade, the 10x ssd array is now comprised of all Samsung 860pro 4TB (40TB). Impressions so far is that its a hair faster than the 850 pro members, but the gain is the size of the volume.
