I bet that was a real pain to work in with so little room. I understand the appeal of SFF systems, but give me a big case with plenty of room, any day. LOL.
The case is a SAMA IM02 White. It's clearly inspired by a Cooler Master NR200 cosmetically, but it cost me about $60 and it overall feels much more premium than that. Excellent quality all around and very very good mechanical design.
I normally love huge towers too but I wanted to downsize. Chose MATX because it offers much more expandability than ITX at a lot lower cost. I wasn't really planning on something this small but this case ticked my boxes.I bet that was a real pain to work in with so little room.

Beautiful build! Always been a fan of white PCs. And it's rare to see a Cryorig cooler these days (same model like the one I have). But I recall the cooler only have one fan, not two?
I got rid of the original H7 Lumi fan. I added 2 Corsair SP RGB fans to the cooler.Beautiful build! Always been a fan of white PCs. And it's rare to see a Cryorig cooler these days (same model like the one I have). But I recall the cooler only have one fan, not two?
Ah I see. I guess I'll do the same thing to mine. Just need to find the metal clip thing to hold the other fan. My original H7 QL fan seems to be on its last leg .I got rid of the original H7 Lumi fan. I added 2 Corsair SP RGB fans to the cooler.
I like this build, looks good even with the panels off.Not my build, but building an Xmas gift for my friends kid - quite happy with the cable management (although 3rd time building in the Meshlicious so I'm a bit ahead of the curve - although first time cramming an AIO in there!!).
Priorities were size (so mITX it is!), and the platform - they're ok with upgrading the GPU in a year or two. I may have blown the budget on the rest of the parts, so was scrambling a bit on the GPU - luckily, I was able to pick up a 1080 FTW from a buddy for free. It's for 1080p Fortnite (maybe Roblox) for an 11year old, so can't imagine that'll be an issue.
The Deepcool logo is driving me crazy, but I can't get the block aligned the other way - pushes into the RAM, uncomfortably so.
I did try the radiator the other way (with the tubes through the 'spine' of the chassis, but it left the block as the highest point - by a long shot, so I had to go this way with it.
Waiting on two more LED strips I'll run down the backside of both MB and GPU side.
Only downside is it's a decommissioned mining card - needed quite the cleaning!!
Luckily the thermal pads were (surprisingly) in good shape as I didn't have any on hand. Deep clean, fresh paste & 12 hours of stress testing. Card checks out.

Prices include some expedited shipping from Newegg as I was pretty short on time when I got asked about it.
impressive you even have a driving wheel.I have intended on making a a racing sim system for awhile but didn't act on it until now really. Pieced something together from spare parts and waited on cheap prices for the rest.
Spec wise it's an i7 4770s, Asus H81, 16gb ram, and an r9 nano. Went ahead and maxed out the power limit on the CPU to get a bit more performance, but sadly these parts are showing there age regardless. Will upgrade storage but probably nothing else due to cost.
Chair is in such bad shape it should be thrown away, and the "desk" as well. Going to try to find some suitable replacements locally, maybe custom. Wonder how cheap a junkyard car seat is...
