Custom PC — Issue 219

In Issue #219 we show you how to downsize your desktop and build a top-notch gaming PC that’s no bigger than a shoebox. We take you through the diverse range of mini-ITX case options available, how to pick the right components and all sorts of tips and tricks to help you maximise your mini PC’s cooling and performance. Finally, we take you through the process of building a mini-ITX PC, complete with a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU.

If your only PCI-E card is a graphics card, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to easily build a mini-ITX machine that suits your needs, while saving loads of space and not compromising on performance.
