Pc system manufacturers like msi and. gigabyte have released some fantastic. small form-factor gaming machines in the . last couple of years but they all have . the same disadvantage non-standard and . in many cases non upgradable components . no you have to leave it to the hardcore . enthusiasts pioneers like lucas diakon . to break free from what has become the . way to build a small form-factor gaming . rig itx motherboards with a single . graphics card are out m atx motherboards . with dual graphic cards are in oh and . did i mention that this thing is liquid . cooled and under 15 liters making it . only slightly bigger than the corsair . one so strap on my friends cuz this go . and be good . [music]. synergy allows you to share your mouse . and keyboard between multiple computers . at once check it out now at the link in . the video description i feel like we . should start with one small problem . project or therus named for the . mythological greek two-headed dog is not . for sale yet this one was actually built . by our friends at proto case they do . great work . the rackmount gaming case they built for . me is still going strong so it's no . surprise then that lukas went to them . with his incredible design and they got . to work every component was laser-cut . in-house the front panel details and . rear i/o not to mention the badass front . logo were milled out the radiator holder . was routed out the motherboard tray and. ssd holder were bent they pressed in all. the rivets standoffs and threaded nuts . routered the side panel and put the . whole thing together with a beautiful . coat of their proto legacy black powder . coating a couple revisions of that and . this is what landed on our doorstep . still some assembly required though am i . right we actually needed to care . packages to assemble our case the one . from proto case that was unidentifiable. as a case other than the main chassis . frame and one from lucas himself that . included among other things a server . power supply with custom rerouted. 12-volt rails to support our dual . graphics cards and custom shorter cables . resisting is already way too cool we . haven't even settled again yours would . of course come in a much more finished. state though so we're going to fast . forward to system assembly front i/o was . pretty straightforward dual usb 2 and . dual usb 3 with hdmi pass-through for vr . and a dope-ass capacitive power button. our nice extras then it was time to move . on to core components . we chose an intel core i7 6900 k for . maximum pcie bandwidth for the 2 pci . express 16x slots on our a seuss x99 mws . motherboard and i'm pretty sure the ws . stands for west syed because this thing . is awesome we added a sprinkling of . coarser vengeance rgb memory on the side . for maximum fps and our 240 millimeter a . i/o goes in next but due to width . limitations there is a mere 55 . millimetres of height available for the . cpu block which is why we ended up using . an older generation corsair h100 i . alright we're getting close now let's . pop the graphics cards in the design. comes with brackets to fit a pair of 2 . and a half inch drives on the . motherboard side and a three and a half . inch drive plus another two and a half . inch to piggyback on top in the second . graphics card tray if you're not using. it but we are using it for twin gtx 10 . atti founders editions so there will be . no junk in the backside for us these . shielded pci express risers go in now . note that one of them is actually more . narrow than the other in order for the . sli bridges to fit then we install the . cards themselves it is a bit tricky as . the bottom card needs to be installed . first then have its custom spliced and . extended sli bridge is connected wrapped . behind the tray and then power it up the . extra length of the sli cables actually . enables them to be hidden behind the . cards so you can show them off in their . full sli glory now that the key . components are together it's time to . spruce the machine up with mucho rgb and . tidy your cabling yeah looks like a fun . task in such a tiny case let's uh summon. the comrade oh that looked pretty easy . now let's check her out all . and in her maximum rgb glory ladies and . gents project orthrus revision3 so from . an idea to a 3d model to the lowest . displacement chassis to be able to run . gt x 1080 ti sli i don't think anything . could have prepared me for something . this breathtakingly nur delicious and . the performance is shocking it's really . not that far off having these components . on an open test bench and is basically . identical to having them in a full-size . chassis in fact for the card that would . normally be suffocating in the top pcie . slot it's even better there is still . some more work to be done our aussie . friends cannot hand wire and paint every. power supply for orthrus buyers and i . think if we were to do another project . with this case we'd probably reverse the . front bends to keep from recycling hot . air and maybe make use of the included. reservoir mount for a custom water loop. but we'll save that for another time for . now for all intents and purposes mission . accomplished. you could even say that now that's not a . gaming rig that's a gaming rig so a huge . shout out to lucas and proto case for . allowing us to be the first to make a . video on this amazing case and also for . sending us another one when we lost the . first one you can follow this projects . future development at the link in the . video description or on twitter at luke . d underscore and see do you suffer from . the incredibly first world problem of . having far too many computers to keep . track of which keyboard and mouse goes . with which. well actually i'm being facetious . because that can be a real problem if . you have a development station and a . gaming station or a pc and a mac well . synergy allows you to share one mouse in . one keyboard between all of them . so you will no longer get confused and . it all happens amazingly seamlessly they . offer a basic and a pro option with a . one-time payment for lifetime access and . features include aside from just being . able to move the mouse across screens . like you wouldn't even believe clipboard . sharing dragging and dropping files the . ability to set up hotkeys and more use . our link in the video description to get . 50% off of synergy today so thanks for . watching guys if you dislike this video . you can hit that button but if you liked . it hit the like button get subscribed . maybe consider checking out where to buy . this . well the internal components are . available for purchase where to buy the . stuff we've featured at the link in the . video description also down there is our . merch store which has cool shirts like . this one and our community forum which . you should totally join . .
