    I do have The Vortex. Most people think because of the looks , they probably think the design wasn’t properly thought through.

    I bought one with a GTX 1070 and downgraded to two GTX 980 , which in turn is an upgrade. Two of the gtx 980 is more powerful than the single gtx 1070. Tearing it apart to upgrade is very very easy. The video above of the tear down is not a video of doing an upgrade on the GPU. You only need to take the two side panel off to upgrade the GPUs. The GPU idles #1 60 Celsius while #2 idles at 42 Celsius. I would choose a Vortex over any other Desk mini any day , due to the cooling/Heatsinks the Vortex have.

    SLI GTX 980

    Yes of course :) We also have the Nano in the SCHENKER business range.

    We have an exclusive relationship with ZPTAC which means we are the only company who can build and sell fully configured versions of these systems :) It's not a project I have been working on though, so if you have any questions I'll have my colleague (desktop PC product manager) jump online and answer.

    P.S. 7700 is the max CPU, no "K" as TDP is too high.
