Double-check to make sure its an MITX mobo (its unclear from your list).

Otherwise looks like a killer build! I thought the price was a little high, then saw the 29" monitor lol.

What is a micro ITX.... there is Mini ITX and Micro ATX.

E-ATX > Standard ATX > MicroATX > Mini-ITX

Thanks. MINI ITX. I was typing fast and Ive been debating which of those 2 to use for the last 2 week so they are melting my brain.

Here are all the parts that came in today



Pictures do not illustrate how ridiculously small this case is..



Damnit, Im not sure why that is rotated




The 450W power supply that comes with the sg05 is noticeably smaller than a normal PSU, but the wiring, though not modular, is fairly neat.




The ASUS P8z77 mITX motherboard is about as big as a CD Case




The Corsair H60 Cooling block and 16gb G Skill RAM

The EVGA gtx670 4gb card is 9.5" long and went in easily with about a half inch to spare, which tells me that the gtx680 at 10" should fit without any modification.




Right now, all I have crammed in here is a 120gb Samsung SSD..... Everything is VERY tight in this case, but after putting this together I can see how I could probably twist and turn some things to make it better and add a decent storage drive.




I managed to get everything crammed in here and it booted and windows 8 installed in LITERALLY about 4 or 5 minutes. Ive never seen an OS install so quickly.

I had no idea what I was doing going into this and there are a couple of things that I will probably end up changing....... but everything IS working great and it is eerily quiet... I am going to continue reading and learning on here as to how I can mod this case to equip more/better fans etc.. I LOVE IT it tiny sitting on my desk and it runs like a tower crammed with big boy hardware.

Great start. biggrin.gif

You can stuff a lot of the cables into the upper braces of the case and use zipties to hold them in there.

If you are comfortable bending and drilling metal then you can make yourself a bracket to put some 2.5" drives on the side of the case, behind the audio and USB panel.



Or do like HPE1000 and mount a 3.5" drive in the top
