High-End Gaming PC in a Case the size of a Shoebox

I set out to build my alternate Dream PC where I go all out in terms of specs of the components but build it in a Small Form Factor (SFF) Case. For the uninitiated, an SFF PC case is no larger than 17 litres in volume, meaning it would only support ITX Motherboard and in most cases only up to an SFX Power Supply.

The issue with building in a small SFF PC Case is managing the CPU and GPU thermals. But, thanks to SSUPD's Meshlicious Case this isn't an issue, thanks to its all-mesh design. The Meshlicious case is so flexible that you can have an ATX PSU and a 280mm AIO in this tiny chassis if so you require. And to top it off SSUPD is a subsidiary of Lian Li, so the build quality of the case is near perfect.

Thanks to Store974 I set out to have my first go in building this SFF High-end PC. Here is the video of my journey and thoughts on the build.
