Will An ITX/Mini ATX Hold Me Back?

 Share

New to the technical size of building computers so here we go. I am looking to build with an i9 or i7 9th gen, 32gb of DDR4 3000, a GTX 1060/70 and a belly full of SSD. Thinking I would like a small foot print of a case so looking at small motherboards.

Would I loose/notice a big difference between the performance on a standard ATX and a mATX/ITX board if i was buying a z390 fairly top to mid range board?

Cheers

No, you'll just have to find a better way to cool and manage without the extra expansion slots. Otherwise its all the same

I have a sg13b ( very small case, about the same width as a ps4) and can play games at high on 1080p with 20 degrees on idle and no more than 50 while playing a game! You wont lose any performance no, just make sure you have a good cooler + maybe a fan ( i have a 120mm at the front helps alot )

The specs you want will run hotter than mine yes, but i don't think it's anything to worry about!

Pcpartpicker.com has a user friendly website that helped be alot when building my pc, if you pick a case you want you can add components that will definitely fit.

Well I'm looking possibly using a Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L with 6x 120mm high pressure fans which is the most it can handle with a Hyper Evo 212 so I'm hoping everything will stay chilly in that set up.
