FormD T1 is 9L (vs 18 for the 200P) which is about the smallest you can go while using a dedicated GPU, that I have seen.

Edit: I guess technically the ghost is smaller at 8.7

they're not using a short GPU like a Quadro P620 or 1030 GT or equivalent...but seems my 9" cubed theory is almost 12 litre's.

8 inches cubed is 8.3 litries and I suspect that is the smallest I can go being an ITX board is 6.7" and I need space for frame, fans and sides. :p

I do love how Lenovo has the M920x that gives you a T series CPU, up to 32GB RAM, two M.2 SSD slots and an RX 560 w/4GB RAM at 1 litre tho.

Even with a short GPU you still need room for a ITX board and a PSU. The GPU length is just a bonus.

At that point though, why not just get a Tiny or similar OEM device with a laptop GPU

because why not? I'd make something unique and mine! :D

A standard ATX PSU is smaller than the the footprint of an ITX board, so the dimensions just need to be a bit bigger than the board to allow space for fans and cables.

ITX board is 6.7" x 6.7"
ATX PSU (standard dimensions) is 6" x 5.6" x 3.44"

a PNY Quadro P620 is a hair under 6" in length, so would fit perfectly.

the extra height would allow for a better CPU cooler while keeping the cube dimensions.

Done went all in on AMD. Placeholder 3600X, Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master, and a Corsair MP600 1TB. I fully expect the bots to clean out the supply of R9 5900X chips on launch day, AMD guidance or no. I will not pay a scalper, so I'll run the placeholder until I get a chip at retail. If I manage to get a chip on launch day, or the day after reviews, then I guess I'll have a 3600X for sale, cheapish. :)

A bluray writer Asus BW-16D1HT (can now rip 4k blu ray) and a new monitor, Asus VG279 27" ips 144hz. Wow, it replaced my ASUS VW266H 25.5IN that I got in 2010 from ncix. What a difference.

since upgrading a gpu is a pointless exercise and the 1080 Ti is still doing fine. I opted for a new subwoofer.
