Original XBOX pc mod. I know, I know, its all been done before nothing new.
Why KBOX because it will feature the new A10-7850K Kaveri cpu and taking advantage of dual graphics.
CPU: 7850K about ready to order it
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WiFi- have it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128663
RAM: G. Skill Trident 2400 Cas 9 2x4gb - have it
GPU: XFX R7 250 low profile (this may change 250x coming out soon) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150682
PSU: Silverstone SFX12v 450 (this may change to SS 450w modular gold $30 more) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256063
My only forseeable problem is cooling.
I plan to cut out the top of the case above the cpu cooler either full circle size of fan cooler and put grill/mesh insert, or cut out design in same area maybe an X for fresh air for the cpu.
Finding a cooler that I can overclock with (within reason confined space cant expect too much), will fit m-itx board, and allow gpu to be installed is not that easy.
I may need to use my free Newegg Premier membership to try out a ton of coolers.
Noctua has NH-L12 but I saw a video where mitx board couldn't fit it with a gpu, so maybe a riser cable and that cooler.
CM GeminII M4, NH-L9a, all bad cooling reviews for OC's. Newegg has a bunch of other low profile coolers that either have no reviews online or are no name.
ANY ideas will help
Also going to cool the socket with a slim fan underneath
GPU is going to be facing out the side grill so no worries there.
