An Australian Gamer has created the world's smallest SLI ready PC case, spending over $4025CAD (approx $3500US) to create the custom chassis through Protocase. 

This system contains dual GTX 1080 GPUs which are connected to the system via PCIe risers and to each other using a custom SLI bridge. The chassis itself cost a lot more to manufacture than the $3500CAD that was used to purchase the PCs internal components.

This chassis was designed for the Australian IT consultant Lukasz Dyjakon, who wanted a case that was small and had a beautifully simplistic design. The chassis is 30cm x 30cm x 10cm, making this chassis tiny when compared to most modern gaming PCs. 

Below are the full specifications of this custom PC. 

CPU: Intel 6700k  
Cooler: Noctua NH-L9i  
CPU Fan: Scythe Kaze Jyu Slim 100mm  
Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VIII Gene  
RAM: 32GB (4 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200 MHz  
GPU: 2 x nVidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition  
SSD1: M.2 SanDisk 950 Pro 256GB  
SSD2: SATA SanDisk Ultra II 1 TB  
Fans: 3 x Noctua NF-B9 PWM  
Power Supply: Based on FSP 700 Watt Platinum with braided cables.  
Other Cables: Custom Riser & SLI Cables  
Front Panel I/O: 4 x USB 3.0 and HDMI pass through for VR headsets.

This chassis is made with two main compartments, one of which contains the motherboard, CPU and system storage, with the other side containing two GTX 1080 Founders Edition GPUs.  

At the front of the chassis, there are 3 Noctua 92mm NF-B9 Redux PWM fans for cooling, with the CPU being cooled by a Noctua NH--L9i CPU cooler with a Scythe Kaze Jyu Slim 100mm fan. This system is designed to have a black, grey and green aesthetic, perfectly matching Nvidia's GTX 1080 Founders Edition GPUs.

Lukasz Dyjakon, the designer behind this custom chassis plans on approach a "number of high volume manufacturers" in order to gauge interest in this unique chassis design. If there is sufficient interest this chassis may make it to the mass market, giving mainstream consumers access to this innovative new chassis design.

I like it. I approached my first mITX build this year and loved it. The only thing missing for me in this SLI build is an optical drive.Quote
