Personally, neither.

 

I would get a Ryzen 7 2700x for gaming and streaming(assuming that's in your budget if you're looking at the 9600K).

What is your GPU, you might want to look into a Ryzen 2600?  Intel doesn't offer great price to performance. FYI: Z170 and Z3** don't work together.

i have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (MSI)

i7 7700 is cheap and easy to install, and doesn't require much cooling outside of anything that isn't the stock cooler. How much performance do you feel like you need to make up?

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 G3 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 thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
