ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Mini

Our Final Thoughts

The ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU Mini card is what I consider an awesome idea and executed beautifully. The reason I say this is that smaller systems are really becoming more popular and all you need to do is attend a LAN to see this, so it comes naturally to see chassis and motherboard manufacturers pumping out solutions to fill this need, but in reality we have not seen many manufacturers thinking outside the box in regards to GPU and providing a compact yet high performance solution for these mini rigs. This is where ASUS stepped in and created this card and it simply works.

Knowing the market demands smaller systems and overall solutions that still can do some serious work ASUS took the ball and ran with it. I hope this spurs the market to create more compact solutions as that means more powerful systems taking up less and less space and that’s never a bad thing.

For anybody looking to build their next small form factor rig I really think you would have a tough tiome finding a better fir for a mini system than the ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU Mini.

Cooler Master Pi Case 40

The Raspberry Pi is now 8 years old and one of the most popular one-card computers out there. The main reasons are low price and the ability to expand the Pi in all sorts of ways making it the perfect mini-computer for all sorts of projects. In my case I’ve been looking into building both a PiHole-computer (filter ads etc) and several OctoPi-servers to use with my 3D-printers.
