I'm planning to build a new PC but I'm a first timer and I was wondering if you could give some advice on this build for a Mini ITX gaming PC.

not really recommend itx for 1st time builders. due to cable management

all you want is everything fits. check all dimensions of every parts.

(lazy way is to search for a completed build with same parts)

Also consider waiting for Ryzen 3000 series, AMD's CEO will be making the opening keynote at Computex next Monday.

Yeah I heard this from some other forums, but I don't know how much this will make a difference.

Might either force a reaction from Intel and/or slash prices for the older Ryzen CPUs, or the price of the new 3000 series is so good that it doesn't make sense to buy the older ones.

 

Anyway, we're so close now that the smart move is to just wait and see what happens, then decide on your next move.

Seems the new CPU is due July 7. That's quite a wait. I'll think about it as you make a valid point.

NZXT Black H200 Mini ITX Windowed PC Gaming Case

If you want a super tiny case, there are some good small choices. The H200 is on the large side for ITX


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - Asus DirectCU GTX 760 - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

I can see it's on the large side but a friend told me NZXT cases are good quality for price. 

They're quite good, I always recommend the tiny Sugo SG13B.

Looks too good to be true. Can all the components actually fit in that tiny thing without it exploding from heat or sounding like a jet engine is taking off? Also, seeing as you're here and humouring me, would you wait for the release of the Ryzen 3000 before making any purchases, CPU wise?

It's a nice case but the 2600X stock cooler is 71mm and the case spec lists 61mm as the max cpu cooler height. So an aftermarket cpu cooler would be required. Finding an aftermarket cpu cooler that will permit overclocking of the 95W TDP 2600X will just add to the system cost.


80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Instead of overclocking, leave it at stock with a Wraith Stealth, plenty of people sell those on eBay. Then recoup the cost by selling the spire.

That might work. I have my doubts. https://www.techspot.com/review/1635-amd-wraith-coolers-compared/ uses a 65W TDP 2600 and the results suggest the cooler might be hardpressed to keep a loaded 95W TDP 2600X at a reasonable temperature.

The advantage Ryzen has is that the throttling is smarter, at 85 degrees it'll drop the clocks a little instead of waiting until it hits 100 like Intel and then dropping to or below base clock.
