    Done a couple of ultra compact builds and it just is not worth it. Ambient temperature increase will affect internal temp too much and modifying anything is a nightmare as everything has to be removed. Would definitely think that life expectancy on several of these components also will degrade when getting close to the thermal throttling point.

      Yep. Do it anyways. Never had a CPU die on me in 8-9 years. I nearly ripped out my Brothers Laptops CPU because the heatsink was pretty much stuck to it. Still works. Most of these "do not"s are boogeymen. Jay even did a Video doing EVERYTHING you shouldnt do. Guess what. PC works.

    I am moving to Japan and would like to take my PC with me. This case looks amazing but isn't available to buy. I currently have a mini 1060 and a full size tower. What case should I buy? I am ok with no hdd slots or RGB. I have not purchased anything, but would like to keep using my 1060 as I everything I currently do works just fine. I am considering a 512gb m.2 and using an external 4tb.

      Depending on when you want to build, AMD has their new CPUs and GPUs coming out, they have a CPU that will be $30 dollars cheaper, and if its like the current gen, comes with a really good cooler, so you wouldn't need the water cooler. So, you could use the money saved on CPU/GPU and either get a RTX 2070/2080 or wait for the GPUs, they have one that competes with the RTX 2070/GTX 1080 for $250. So, if you could wait, you could build something just as powerful for cheaper, or more powerful for the same price. Also, replace the SSD with an NVME type drive.
