Hi Guys,

I would just like to share this mod I did to fit a low profile single slot GPU into a In Win Chopin. I haven't seen anyone doing it in exactly this way.

Components used:
IN Win Chopin
J3455-ITX mobo from Asrock
GT1030 from gigabyte
HDMI extender cable
PCI express x1 riser cable.

(Sorry about the poor quality photos)

Does limiting the card to PCIE x1 cause any issues with the 1030's 4K 60FPS HDR video playback capabilities? I'm considering setting up something similar as an HTPC (Mobo has a PCIE 2.0 16x slot that runs at 1x), and just wanted to check if it would actually be able to do the thing I'd be building it to do.

I haven't noticed any stuttering during 4k movies using kodi. And when I tested games like CSGO and racedriver grid on it. It looks like the CPU is the bottleneck and the GPU is only utilized at about 80%
