Silverstone recommend you use an open air cooler for this case
I agree with them. Since there are no case fans, the card has to generate its own airflow to dissipate heat. An open air card does this much much better than a blower.

I could see that as well. I guess the best option would be the RVZ02B with clear window. maybe I could create my own dust filter for that. I would get just a 980 but I'm better off saving money on getting a 970.

At first I was just thinking about taking the GTX 970 I have right now and dropping it into this new build but the new build will be a skylake. Figure it should take full advantage of the upgrades.

Which I can see gigabyte or MSI having the best open air cards. Only thing is a MSI card might be a little to large

Where in this other build it's a i5 4690K.

The new build is a i7 6600K

It all depends on what you want out of the PC,

If you're gaming at 1080, a 970 is perfect, or maybe a 980 if you wanna be future-ready
1440 - definitely a 980 or maybe a 980Ti
4K and higher - you'll need 2 of the above cards

If you're primarily gaming, you wont need an i7. Also I wouldn't overclock in the RVZ02

Skylake i7s are pretty efficient with a TDP of 91W
Gaming (most of it) is not CPU intensive, so you'd save some money by getting an i5 (6600, 6500, 6400)
That will save more $$ and also the TDP is 65W so you shouldn't run into any problems even on turbo clock speeds.

I definitely want to do 4K gaming. And yeah the build is primarily for gaming and other entertainment. I thought that I be doing well in Future proofing by getting a i7 6600K. I wouldn't over clock in the case but maybe down the line may want to swap cases or so.

So I've my other CPU which is used for gaming and entertainment. It's also a mini-itx corsair 250D. more likely it will be a secondary and maybe the living room PC unless I drop a 980 in there.

I guess the reason why I chose the i7 is because at some I'll need to do some photoshop and maybe cad work.

But you think the i7 is overkill? Should I just get an i5 6600K instead? I get discount on my processor because a family me works for them so I am not paying full retail,

Forgive me by the way as I some still learn a bit. Also isn't best to have an i7 if you are doing 4K?

We all have to learn somewhere!
Forums are sometimes the best way to do it

You seem pretty balls to the wall, yea go for the i7.
It should serve you well for quite a while
Lucky with the inside discount!!!

ITX may not be the best format for 4k gaming since you'll need a couple of cards for smooth FPSes
A single 980Ti will do the job for now, but it might not in the near future

Maybe wait for Pascal GPUs to launch later this year?

I mean if I go with the an i7 I'll save some money, I guess I wanted to see how small form of a beast I could create. Work in the urban planning sector. Form and design is something that I am quite fond. Minimal design.

I play FPS but not competitively. I just want my games to look like silky butter that puts my xbone and ps4 to shame lol. With a 980 or ti I could get those results. I mean 4k with a single 980 or ti 30FPS should be difficult right? And not too much of a strain?

Our home PC we use has GTX 960 which the only thing I play on it is City Simulators and maybe street fighter lol

I dunno it looks like RVZ01 is more practical in functionality based upon cool options.

Believe me, you dont want to play fps games @30hz^^
But a 980 is also able to handle 4k60hz pretty good, when you dont max out every graphics setting.
Lets be honest: in games like BF4 or Crysis 3 you dont really see the difference between high and ultra, but it make like a 30% performance difference.

I would hold off on giving any kind of performance judgment until DX12 is fully implemented by gaming developers. A single GTX980Ti may prove to be more than enough GPU horsepower to game at 4K even with most, if not all graphics options at higher settings once DX12 is implemented as it bypasses the CPU bottleneck currently resident in DX11 and earlier API iterations.

Just Cause 3 DX12 patch will hopefully provide some insight into the future performance expectations for current and future generation graphics technology (Nvidia and AMD).

Here's an open source list of upcoming DX12 enabled games:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_games_with_DirectX_12_support

Also, I do have apprehensions regarding current games that get patched for DX12 versus those that were originally developed as a DX12 game. Games that are patched will most likely not receive all of the DX12 extensions and thus will only have part of the DX12 advantages. This happened with DX11 and DX10, so I expect no difference now.

I have the Gigabyte Z170N Gaming 5 mobo in my mini-ITX build. What would you like to know?
