ITX and 2600K?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Currently I have an Fractal mATX case but been thinking about going even smaller with ITX....From what I can see there is really no good S 1155 Boards to run a 2600K on stock speeds and perhaps a slight oc....

Wanted to touch base and see if there is anyone out there using a 2500/2600K with a ITX board and see what your experience was?

Tested shortly on a 2500 on ITX, running stock clocks due to H67 chipset.

It was a small rig with 4gb ram and 400w PSU and an ok SSD. Don't remember what GPU he was using though.
Worked very well, and was as fast as a normal desktop in everything!

So my opinion was that the ITX build was just as fast as any high end 1155 if paired with beefy GPU wink.gif

EDIT: Temps where not bad either, did not generate to much heat since it was running stock clocks. He had a stock cooler, and load was like 55-60c if I don't remember wrong!

The only 2 Z68 ITX boards out atm are from Zotac and Asrock. Neither of these have been touted as "overclocking" boards and the Zotac seems to have alot of problems.

Read the SFF thread on Hardforum for some example attempts etc:

Zotac Z68-ITX Wifi

ASRock Z68M-ITX/HT

just looking at your specs, I dont think your really going to be able to go (much) smaller without first, dropping some of your key hardware.

most notably your sound card, but also possibly your h100, your 580(depending on how small you exactly want to go and whether you are handy with modding), and perhaps, even your PSU.

the CPU + board is really not the major concern.
no single GPU is going to be released any time soon that will top out a 2500k @4ghz, which either of the two boards out right now, could easily do if you're just a little bit smart about it.

Can keep the 580 if going with a Lian Li PC-Q08 case. PSU might work, because the TP New are rather "short" for a higher wattage modular PSU.

Sound card and H100 will have to go. If you want to keep using water, the Corsair H60 might fit in the Q08 case as is, or at worst with a slim fan. Honestly, it will hardly make a difference with the low overclocks you will be getting with existing Z68 ITX motherboards.

BTW if you do end up going this route, sell me the Gene-Z for cheap, plz. biggrin.gif

H50 + H60 fit fine in the Lian Li case, I've done it with my old i5 750 mitx system.

i'm actually doin this build as we speak, but with a 2500k instead. here's a list of components i'm using:

zotac z68itx mobo
2500k
8gigs corsair vengence
ocz vertex 3 120gig ssd
bluray burner
corsair h60
lian li pc-q08b case
ocz modxstream pro 500 psu
evga 550ti superclock

i know for a fact that the h60 will fit in the top of the pc-q08 with about 2-3mm to spare. looking for an overclock around 4.5-4.7gigs. and as far as the zotac board having problems or not being able to overclock well, they have since released a bios update that allows voltage control now as this was the major culprit in limited overclocks before. i just read a review a few days ago where the reviewer was able to get the 2600k up to 4.5gigs stable. we'll see biggrin.gif

I've heard the AsRock ITX Z68 can be OCed with CPU Thermal Throttle turned off. You can expect 4 to 4.5GHz, but I am still unsure if that is true. The Zotac is still a better MoBo in the end.

check out this build. I sold it months ago even though I really liked it. But I would not suggest going ITX because of its limited upgradibility and extreme heat. I had H60 and temp was around 70C at stock clock on a 2500k.... I don't know what would happen if it were an overclocked 2600k at 4.5ghz lol
