Hello,

 

I'm a first time builder. I'm moving after I build my PC so I want it to fit in my carry on bag. 

That's why I think I'm gonna build inside a Micro ATX case but I want an X570 Mini ITX MOBO cause I think they are better than the current Micro ATX ones. 

 

My current specs are:

I don't know if I should go for the Gigabyte or ASRock Motherboard. 

 

Any recommendations? Should I go for an ATX build?

Where are you located now and where are you moving too?

From my personal experience if you're located in the US taking Desktop PC's even if small is a hassle especially as a carry on item, some airlines won't even let you, they will have you check it. If I were you I would wait until you were moved to build your PC, if you want to take it as a carry on what are you going to to with the monitor and peripherals?

Main Desktop: CPU - I9-9900k @5ghz | Mobo - Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master | GPU - Asus ROG STRIX 2080ti OC RAM - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB 3200mhz | AIO - H100i Pro RGB | PSU - Evga 850 GQ | Case - Fractal Design Meshify C White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 512GB / Sabrent Rocket 1TB NVME SSD / Samsung 860 Evo Pro 500GB / Seagate 2TB Firecuda Hybrid Drive |

 

TV Streaming PC: Intel Nuc CPU - i7 8th Gen | RAM - 16GB DDR4 2666mhz | Storage - 256GB WD Black M.2 NVME SSD |

 

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G - Deep Black 512GB |

 

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

Because I like the case I have and I want more space. And It's still not that big. I didn't like the Mini ITX cases lol.
