An... interesting build...

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My friend asked me to build him a gaming PC. Well I decided to have a little fun with this. I found the smallest Micro ATX case I could find and found the highest most reliable PSU I could find, which was 500 watt. I will post links below to the parts and questions below the links.

Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811108403
Access no substitutions

RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231461

Optical drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106289

HDD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136692
Two of those.

PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817147084
Is this reliable?

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103849
Can the mobo handle this? (Solved)

GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150506
Can the current PSU handle this? (Solved)

Thank you!

I have a 6850 and a 520W PSU. I think it will be able to handle it... I caution you though because sometimes those smaller cases can't fit a full size graphics card. My brother has a Dell slim and has to have low profile cards all the way. I haven't done my research on the difference between slim and micro, but if the profile isn't the problem the length might be, I know all the full cases are braging about room for full size 12" cards, so double check?

Nevermind I didn't see the extender.

Will you be overclocking also? If you don't plan on overclocking I have a money saving plan.... You could get a 1055t and overclock that as far as possible on stock voltage. Mine hit 3.5 unstable 3.3 stable... But the turbo on that is higher...just a suggestion, you could try to get a smaller after market cooler, I do realize though you are going for low size and probably a quiet PC. *But we all know those stock fans howl.* Maybe a stock oriented fan and heatsink like this...

I'm not so sure about lowprofile coolers just make sure your case flow is good regardless of an overclock.

Yeah, I plan on modding the case...

I will not be overclocking. Although I am trying to find a different CPU cooler other than the stock. And case flow will obviously not be that much as the Video card will be on its side... (Intake fan faced up with hole cut out w/ air filter on the top)
Also, +1 on the help.

They make the lowprofile coolers that have directed fans, kinda like a graphics card, it could help with flow. Are you going to mod a GPU access slot on the back? If so I definately want to see pictures when it is complete.

Otherwise looks like you have a good build then, you actually have made me want to build a low profile case now. Lol

Yes I will be. I will be removing the plates. And I will be cutting about the I/O area where the GPU will go horizontally. When I'm finished I will ask my friend if I can post some pictures and/or a video and if he says I can, then I will. But he will be funding this as this is his future computer.

Will look into it. I first needed to find out if 500 watts was enough.

Everything looks good to me, other than the PSU. It's not that it's bad, I've just never heard of the brand. (But then again, I am in Australia)

Hey, neither have I. I only chose that based on the reviews people gave it.
