  1. Thanks for the quote tip! are the newer motherboards backwards compatible with my hardware?
  2. Thanks for the quick response, I use the PC for work - development & data science, as well as the usual productivity and the odd bit of media streaming. I do most of the data science work on cloud so local compute is not a huge concern. I use docker and VMs quite a bit too. I don't play as many games as I used to, the last big title I bought was forza horizon 3 which runs good enough for me on this hardware, I can;t see myself buying anything more demanding.
  3. Hello, First time here, apologies in advance if I'm in the wrong place. I would like to reduce my build to a smaller form factor, for the smallest cost and would appreciate suggestions on how to achieve this. I'm hoping a new motherboard and case shoudl do the trick? Ideally, I'd like to keep the optical audio out too. It's been quite a while since I built the pc, so I'm really not sure what products are available, or even if they're available anymore - current build: NZXT S340 case, Skylake, i7 6700k 8gb corsair ddr4 lpx @ 3000mhz ASRock Z170 Extreme4 Radeon RTX 480 4GB (sorry) 2 x 1TB HDD 1 x 256GB m2 SSD (Crucial_CT275MX300SSD4) Cooler master hyper 212 EVGA Supernova 650 W G1 Gold 80 Plus Modular Power Supply Unit A Wifi card of unknown manufacturer. Any help appreciated! edit: added cooler and PSU
