Hello Everyone, I am currently working on a custom lego thin mini itx laptop build (the dimensions of my case are 10"L x 17.5"W x 1.1"H, but I can always change it if i made a mistake ) and a have a few question:
1. what is the smallest possible height for a thin mini itx if use a different cooling system than stock?
2. what kind of power supply will I need to power my system?
3. what Graphic card options do I have on a thin mini itx board?
4. does the LVDS port power an LCD as well? I am planning on buying a 17"LCD KIT but do i still need the controller board if the MOBO has a LVDS port and I believe a port to power it.
The motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-H87TN
The CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K
Ram: PNY DDR3-1333 204-pin SODIMM 8gb
thanks for the the input, I might just use the I5-4670k outta of my current pc and upgrade. The Mobo just came in today, and also had very little information on the LVDS port. Can I power the monitor through the MOBO? it says it has the headers for it but im unsure. I'm planning on buying: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-VGA-DVI-Audio-LCD-controll... but if i only need the LCD + LVDS I could cut costs.
