Example Builds

The MINI is a revolutionary design, the original "console pc", and the inspiration for an entire genre of ITX cases. Working in a tiny space with ribbon cables and DC-DC power supplies can seem daunting, but a little guidance transforms the process into something that is simple and fun. Follow these example configurations to quickly get started building your own MINI!

2070 Build (most popular)

There is a reason this build is the most popular with MINI enthusiasts. The Zotac 2070 Mini or Inno3D 2070 Mini provide excellent graphics horsepower for no compromise 2560x1440 gaming while remaining fairly cool and quiet. Both can be made brickless, but choose the Inno3D for the easiest build possible. 

  • Plug and play!

  • Use this power configuration if you plan to move up to a 2080, or 1080ti

2060 Build (NFC favorite)

The GeForce 2060 6GB is a NFC personal favorite. It does a great job balancing high resolution gaming performance with efficiency. Under load it sips power, allowing it to remain cool and quiet and with 35w CPUs can be powered by a plug-in DC-DC unit like the new HDPLEX 200DC. This saves money and reduces wiring complexity making for a neat build.

  • Plug and play!

1650 build

The 1650 is a solid performer at 1080p in AAA games and with a few compromises can drive high resolution monitors with smooth frame rates. What makes it interesting is its extreme efficiency which allows it to be powered off the PCIE bus. This "brickless" MINI is powerful, silent, elegant, and extremely portable--perhaps the finest example of small form factor computing.

  • Plug and play!

1080ti Monster build

If complexity, noise, heat, and cost are secondary to performance, then this is the configuration for you. There is nothing that can compare in size and raw performance of this monster MINI build. 

  • This build is only on this list by popular request. NFC does not endorse it due to noise, heat, and complexity.

  • Now Plug and play!
