[Advice] First Build ITX

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I would like to say I've lurked around these threads for some time and am finally in a situation where I can build my first computer. I was thinking a mini ITX build. I have picked all of the parts that I think I will need and I think everything is compatible. Was I correct in compatibility and will this all fit in my case and stay cool enough? Thank you very much for your time.

Case: Bitfenix Prodigy
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811345021

CPU: Intel i7 3770k (on sale at a local Microcenter so I opted for this over the usual 3570k)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116501

MOBO: ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131840

RAM: G.Skill Sniper 1600Mhz (2x8GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231609

GPU: EVGA 670 FTW
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130787

SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (I don't plan on doing much more than gaming so I have opted for no mechanical HDD)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147193

PSU: Corsair HX 750 Modular (Is this going to fit? Is this overkill for my system?)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010

Cooler: Corsair H100i (I've seen the H100 in other Prodigy builds so I assume it will fit)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181017

If there are parts that will not fit please suggest ones that will.
I want to make sure this stays cool (I'm not brave enough to jump into watercooling, this is my first build). Will all of this stay at adequate temperatures if I have Spectre Pro fans as intakes?

Thank you very much for your time.

Will the 670 fit in that case? Its a pretty long card at 10 inches and I think the case only said it was 9.75 inches wide.

Edit
Im an Idiot the Card Will be oriented front to back so it should be fine.

A 660 will be a full 2.5 inches shorter.
The case looks plenty tall and deep so the PSU and h100 should be fine.

Thank you for taking a look!

Looks good.

The 750 is definitely overkill for your system. Something like a Rosewill CAPSTONE 550W is enough.

What will you be doing with the system? If you're just gaming, get the 3570k and save some money. The i7 is not needed. But hey, if you like it because it's cheap at MC, go ham.

The 670 will fit just fine, the powersupply, however will not. The absolute max you want to put in the prodigy is 160mm, and your selection is 180mm long.

Why not go with a CX600M this should be more than enough power for everything you have listed. This is what I am using for my prodigy build.

Microcenter is selling the 3770k for $230 right now, why not go with it? EDIT: Haha, oops guess you knew it was cheap at MC thumb.gif

And yes, 550w would even be enough, but I suggested the CX600M since its modular, yet slightly less efficient.

In regards to the cooling, the h100 will definitely fit and be cool enough.

Ok, I will get that PSU switched out. Will this setup (mostly concerned with the GPU) stay at reasonable temperatures? It will be used for gaming (mostly things like skyrim and mmos)

I'll be cool as long as you don't overdo any overclocking

I won't be doing any crazy overclocking, i was thinking low 4s most likely. One last question... Can I replace the stock fans on the H100i with 120mm Spectre Pro fans without sacrificing cooling performance?
