New Technology – Make a tiny PC with the Louque Ghost S1 case


The base Louque Ghost S1 computer chassis is so small that it’s not large enough to hold a pair of adult-sized shoes. Think about that for a moment. Its base dimensions are as follows:

  • 183mm high (7.2 inches)
  • 140mm wide (5.5 inches)
  • 320mm long (12.5 inches)

Because of the case’s modularity, it can still increase in size when you attach a different-sized “top hats.” These sections can contain radiators, extra fans, and other cooling options for your PC.

No space, no problem

The main problem with small form-factor cases is space constraints. You can only fit in certain components, which means your options are much fewer. Plus, it’s also tougher to assemble PCs in such chassis as you can usually build only from one side.

What’s cool about the 7.1-liter Louque Ghost S1 chassis is that all its sides come off. You build onto the case’s spine, then put everything around it.

Here’s how the case looks when you build a tiny PC using powerful components.

See how it’s barely larger than an Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti box? Amazing.
