I realised there are little differences between these 2 motherboards, which is more worth it?
Intel i7 8700 (non K)
RTX 2060
2666MHz RAM

 Neither of these has a vrm heat sink, so dropping clocks on a 6 core i7 would not be surprising. You may want to spend a bit more on the motherboard.

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I've heard that the heatsinks are mainly needed for overclocking? And with my components I can't do it

You also need heat sinks for stable power delivery on demanding CPUs. The 8700 does require a fair amount of power, with a boost clock of 4.3 on all cores.

Fair enough, I understand. I am currently looking at this one - https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASROCK-B365M-PRO4-1151-DVI-D/dp/B07MW7ZT1J/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=B365M+Pro4&qid=1588529071&s=computers&sr=1-1
