An LZ7 with a Full Length GPU?

​YES PLEASE!! The new RTX cards consume more power than their predecessors, which could mean we see fewer short (ITX) length cards this upcoming generation in the enthusiast category.  For this reason I wanted to explore the possibility of adding some extra panel options that will extend the case by 80mm, allowing compatibility with full…

LZ7 i7-7700 Silent SFF Gaming Build

  In this article, I wanted to look into what the LZ7 is capable of when running a maxed out system based on its recommended components.  Although some people have built great LZ7 systems with 95w TDP overclocked CPU’s, if you value silence (as I do) then I would recommend sticking to a 65w CPU. AMD’s new 65w…

Portable PC Gaming Case?

Updated LZ7 Photos and More Performance Testing

Time for some more photos, I've carried out some testing with the alternative side panels to see what difference there is with noise and cooling performance.
