Really not looking to upgrading to an ATX or mid tower system. I’m going ITX and that’s all I’ll ever need. When ram capacity standards shift again, we’ll get 32gb sticks, and ITX will still be relevant. Multi-GPU is near dead except for the ultra baller stuff or virtual machines. Don’t need it.
I like my stuff to be nice and tidy and efficient. No more space than necessary, but without sacrifices(IE shoebox cases and SFX PSU’s, and their other problems). I don’t really NEED to fill the space below the GPU, as that’ll provide extra airflow, but, refer to above if possible.
My room has a carpet and I have 1 long haired cat. I think part of the reason my current PC is so bad is because dust is hurting it. I have the side panel off to keep stuff cool as there is no exhaust fan, and the GPU fan doesn’t work well anymore.
I work outside and often come in with dirt on my clothes and boots. My room doesn’t have the best filtration either since it’s a window unit A/C and I also have a dehumidifier. Both have very basic mesh-style air filters and the A/C obviously isn’t perfectly sealed from the outside, and old, so it has build up in the channels and stuff.
I’m also inherently a bit lazy and am not a fan of maintenance.
I’m going to be starting off with stock cables, but eventually moving to cable-mod cables. If I ever went and did the custom loop, it would be pretty simple with a small res and a 240 or 280. Maybe split it up into 2 120’s or 2 140’s, one for each of the two major components.
Obviously, at that stage, I’d also ball out on custom bent hard tubing, of which I’m reasonably sure I could do myself. I think I’m gonna keep the case black for lighting flexibility. I might also paint the case/do mod panels, so, IDK.
What are your recs, now? I want tempered glass for sure. No ifs, ans, or buts. Is there anything outside of my findings that would work, too?
