Re-modified the front panel on my Define S. Originally, it looked like this, but I was never happy with it after the first version was done because the union jack perforated metal sheet just didn't look right once it was painted.










I also INCREASED the mesh area, in addition to changing to a more traditional "mod mesh" type perforated metal. Much happier, but still deciding if I'm going to put the S emblem back on or go a different direction.

Personally never have messed around with ITX until now. Good things do come in small packages.

Its nothing impressive spec-wise, but it gets the job done:

i5 7500
Thermaltake CPU cooler
2x8gb G.skill Aegis 3200mhz (downclocked to 2400mhz)
Gigabyte H110N ITX
Corsair force 120gb NVME
Kingston A400 240gb SATA
EVGA XC GTX1660
SeaSonic M12ii EVO 520w
Cooler Master Elite 110 Case

The 2x8gb Ripjaws 2400mhz ram I ordered for this pc was DOA, and I'm waiting on G.skill RMA. I ripped my 2x8gb Aegis 3200mhz outta my main pc and put it in here. I bought a 2x8gb 4000mhz CL18 kit for my main pc for just $79, which might be a little out of the league of my B350 board, though it previously handled a 3600mhz kit oc to 3833mhz.

This GPU has a 2.75 slot cooler and 3 slot backplate. It fit in the case, but the case only has room for a dual-slot bracket, so i had to modify the bracket on the 1660 to make it work.

This motherboard is THE DEFINITION of mediocre. The m.2 slot is on the back of the board, which is annoying to access.

That actually would probably work. It would work even better if you were to remove the coating where the thermal pad contacts the chassis. I wouldn't worry about it though unless you can actually verify that there is a throttling condition happening.
