Is Mini itx friendly for my first build

Recommended Posts

The case is pretty spacious so it should be gracious, as mini ITX cases go.


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:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

you'll be alright. mini ITX becomes a challenge when you're building in something like the SG-13 but even then it's not too bad providing you can keep cables tidy.

as said above that's a pretty spacious mini itx case, so you should be alright.

 

i will say though that your gpu seems to be a 2.5 slot card and your case only has 2 pcie slots. your GPU will either not fit, or the fans will be so close to the power supply basement that it will be choked for air the whole time.

i would seriously suggest that you go for microATX in this build instead. Mini ITX is best suited to blower-style or watercooled cards in cases with power supply basements.

 

also, since you're not using anything on PCIE Gen 4, you can save yourself some money by switching to a Ryzen-3000 compatible X470 or B450 MATX board and changing to a MATX NZXT chassis (to keep the look you're going for)

using an undersized motherboard in a case always looks a bit odd. you can save money by moving to micro ATX and to X470/B450 as not only are micro ATX boards cheaper to make in general because tolerances are a little loser and components don't have to be crammed on to every available inch of the board, but motherboards with those chipsets do not need all the extra expensive wiring and shielding an X570 board does, for features you're not actually using in your build from what i can tell.

Another drawback of itx boards : you might encounter with problems fitting a beefy cpu cooler, as sometimes the heatpipes or fins will actually interfere with heatsinks on the motherboard. 

 

A friend of mine installed a larger silentiumPC Fortis3 cooler inside a h200 NZXT case, and due to the large dimensions of the fins, he could not add the rear exhaust fan to the case. 

 

Wide heatsinks can also almost touch the backplate of GPU. 

 

I would not recommend itx case with beefy aircoolers and thick Videocards
