Move PC from ATX to Mini ITX

So, Im looking at downsizing my PC from its current ATX form factor to a smaller Mini ITX size. Got my eyes on the NZXT H1 case at the moment as it seems to offers some pretty good bang for buck and makes things easier. I'd like to keep as much as my old PC as possible, even the old 970.

 

So the old PC is as follows:

CPU: I7-6700K

GPU: GTX 970

MB: maximus IX Hero

RAM: 16GB corsair vengance

1 SSD and 1 HDD

PSU: RM750X

 

What would be Ideal is if I could fit as much as possible from my old PC in the mini itx, to keep costs low. any suggestions would be great

- Air 540 - MAXIMUS IX HERO - i7-6700K - GTX 970 - 16GB Corsair Vengance - 850 EVO 250GB - Seagate 2TB - H100i V.2 - RM750X

 

Corsair Strafe RGB MX silent - Razer Deathadder Chroma Elite - JBL pebbles - LG 24MP88HM-S

might as well get a new CPU when you're already changing the board, the rest (aside from PSU if the case needs SFX) can stay as long as they still fit

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 - Hyper 212 Black (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)

 

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

Since you are changing the board out you could as well just move onto a newer platform. That and your current board still fetches a pretty darn good price on the used market.

 

You could also get a really small atx case like the riotoro cr1080. It's the size of the bit larger itx cases.

It did cross my mind, but honestly not run into any problems with it at all, it's going pretty solidly still at the moment so I'm pretty happy keeping it. realistically I only use the PC when i'm home from university, just need it a bit smaller, since the Air 540 that Its in the moment is a bit of a wide boy

Im quite surprised about the board but it seems your right, I might check it out, see if I can find the box and bits etc.
