First Mini-ITX build help

 Share

Is there any performance draw backs to a itx build? I was thinking about 3950x but hate to spend the extra money if the itx board bottlenecks it or something.

Heat is the biggest concern with a small chassis. Depends on the case/cooler/chip though

Itx boards are small, so not a lot of place for VRM , I think you can draw conclusions form that, but if you want to run stock I don't think you will have any problems.

"ITX" wont be the bottleneck, it will be either overall size, performance or noise. Getting all three to be equal will be costly, and most users are not comfortable with "large" (15L+) cases that are mITX as they are not considered "true" mITX cases, so it comes down to performance vs noise.

Its going to be going into a large case as a dual system. I would run a aio for now but want a loop for each system.

its the 1000d case and will be the second system, will probably run a 280mm aio
