Nice!

Very nice! What kind of temps do you get when everything is buttoned up?

Actually temp isn't all that bad, I went with a Ryzen 2600 for the low starting TDP and the Quadro's superior power management kept the GPU temp in check. It's not silent at full load, in fact, we measured it to be sub 50 db at 30 cm distance when running benchmarks, frequently only around 45 db.

Wow, that's a great SFF build. It looks like that's almost the same size as one of the alienware GPU docks.
Nice work!

Its actually quite a bit smaller than both the razer gpu dock as well as the alienware graphics amp. The DAN A4 is only 7.2L while the razer core is around 7.8L and the graphics amp is 13L.
