I was wondering how small case I can get and still install 200W graphics card inside without overheating or any additional issues. Couple of days ago I found Silverstone Milo ML07 in pretty good price and since I didn't like the look of plastic parts, grills and some other things then I decided to make something with it.
I made it also because some forum members were looking for small gaming case. At the end I wanted to put MSI motherboard and some other parts in a case as I'm moving it often between home and work.

Standard Silverstone case looks like this:

Temps with [email protected] and GTX1070:
max CPU: ~80*C in Prime95, ~64*C while folding, less while playing games
max GPU: ~81*C while folding

Modifications:
Plasti Dip cover - white, "rubber" finish + red paint on sides/top
Removed standard grills and added new black alu
Changed sleeving on power/reset/LED cables
Removed drive bay ( some cutting )

Hardware setup:
i5 [email protected] 1.15V / Cryorig C7 cooler
MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC ( WiFi/Bluetooth included )
Gigabyte GTX1070 Founders Edition
Patriot Viper 4 2x4GB [email protected] XMP timings 1.35V ( option to switch to 16GB when needed )
Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SATA SSD ( option to add M.2 SSD )
Corsair SF450 - 450W Gold 90+ ( passive till 50%+ load so for most of the time )

Thanks :)
I had some more ideas but I'm switching hardware too often and probably I will sell this GTX1070 so I didn't want to try with water cooling. Whole pc runs really quiet and I'm pretty satisfied. I was also trying to load it to the max to check if all is fine. Tests took about a week and all is fine.

I decided to add something and modify couple of small things. Also had to repaint red/black stripe as front was brighter than the top/bottom ( or left/right side, depends how you look at it ).

thanks, it's a bit larger than Xbox 360 but PSU is inside and it generally runs everything ... it's also not as noisy as Xbox ( I had no PS so can't compare )
