I see a lot of really fantastic machines here in the worklogs and the galleries, but not very many SFF ones so I'll post mine. Build just starting, components on their way.
My first build was a 486DX2 66Mhz back in 1993 and have done many since. This one however will be my first water cooled machine (and I'll post every blunder I make along the way).
MOBO: ASUS Maximus iV Gene-Z/Gen 3 mATX
CORE: i7 2600K processor - got the K to OC a little, wont go to the limit
RAM: 4x4GB GSKILL
GPU: GTX680 - low power and small for performance, perfect for this (out of stock arghhhh!)
SSD1: 60GB Corsair Force GT for OS
SSD2: 240GB Corsair Force GT for programs
DVD: Lite-on external USB DVD drive - hardly ever use an optical drive anymore so I'm leaving it out.
PS: Silverstone Strider Gold 850W (want to run at 50% for max efficiency + future room to expand)
CASE: Lian Li V600F - big for a SFF, small for a mini-tower. Just right for this project.
Liquid Cooling Components:
Danger Den Monsoon Reservoir
Danger Den fill port
D5 variable speed pump
EK water blocks
Magicool 180mm radiator
Phobya G-Silent 180mm fans for rad in push/pull
Aquaero LT system controller
Could find no performance data on 180mm rad/fans so this will be an excellent test. I will need to dissipate 290W of TDP. I will track and post system temps as reference for everyone.
Here is the case + sketch of component placement
