@Warpuck So I shouldn't worry about the CPU cooler? My concern is the stock cooler may not provide the proper airflow.

I think this is like what you are doing

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=intel-pentium-g4400&num=1

I looked this over. I think it was all done with the provided heat sink. Stock the max is less than 60 watts for the entire thing. At least if you ever needed to you could stick a i3 or or low power i5 in it later on. Probably still would not need a after market heat sink.

look at pages 6 and 8 that is why I think the fan probably would never turn or least need to with a after market cooler.

We used to cool 2.0Ghz P4s with 80mm in and 80MM out and just plain metal heatsinks and this G4400 does not draw as much power. The single 120mm provided will get the job done. Don't forget the power supply will be moving air too and it will probably not even get warm.

@War: hmm, good point. That saves 35 dollars on the build smile.gif

UPDATE:

A friend of mine has offered to denote ddr3 corsair vengance memory (16gbs). Obviously, ddr3 wouldn't work on a 1151 board but what do you guys think? Should I reconsider and use a haswell build? Or stick to my current configuration?

And should I consider an AMD build to cut costs? The pentium g4400 is well priced but I'd feel better going with something to an i3 (i5 is over kill).

I would stick with what you have. Get a good fan for the rear as the stocker is noisy (it will be running nearly wide open any time the computer is not idling). Other than that, it looks good. As far as psu, put the most you can budget toward better efficiency. A modular or semi modular would be preferred, but since there will be no gpu, there will be plenty of room for spare cables.

Hey guys,
Thought I'd check in with you and give you an update. The case is due to arrive this Thursday meanwhile I'm finding myself focusing on the psu. im between the v550 by cooler master (full modular model) and the new sfx sx500-lg. Both are gold rated, have 120mm fans, and fully modular. The 550 is compact at 140mm while the sx500 is 125mm and features custom cables that are shorter in length.

Thoughts on which I should choose?

If they are similar in price, I would go with the smaller one. However, check the respective warranties. Also consider that that case uses the psu as the exhaust fan, so the larger v550 might keep the whole build cooler and quieter. Both seem good though.

The Cooler Master V550 is much better then the SilverStone SFX.
And 80 plus has nothing to do with rated output stability or quality if you are under that misconception.

@ Shilka: No, not at all. The reason I was considering this model of the SFX series was based on this review I found within our forums http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=433.
I know enough now never to go off simple Specs and marketing terms smile.gif

I still like the Cooler master v550 very much but I read this review https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/CoolerMaster/V550/12.html and am a little concerned about Hold-up Time and cable lengths. My parents have frequent brown outs (Thank you FPL) so some of their electronics have already been affected because of it. The simple solution is a back up battery but I'm just trying to find the simplest, cleanest option. Cable wise I'm not sure I'm ready to tackle creating my own PSU cables due to time and money at the moment.

@ War: Indeed! I'm really trying to factor in how well this default setup will work even though my components are low output. I'm still leaning towards the v550 for that reason but want to make sure I've exhausted all options.

UPDATE

Case arrives today. Soon as it does I'll post pictures and dissemble the thing to determine the ideal layout (I.E.; mobo inverted, etc)

The budget has taken a hit. Originally it was 450 now it's down to 350 meaning I had to eliminate purchasing a new power supply. Instead I'll be using my leftover psu from my first build; Corsair cx750M. It's not ideal but it's compact and semi-modular.

I've ordered everything else. Here's the list of current components ordered.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel Pentium G4400 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($58.99 @ SuperBiiz)
CPU Cooler: CRYORIG C7 40.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($29.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: MSI H110I Pro Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard ($74.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: Avexir Core Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Case: RAIJINTEK Metis (Blue) Mini ITX Tower Case ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair CX 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($73.88 @ Newegg)
Total: $332.83
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
Generated by PCPartPicker 2016-02-29 13:17 EST-0500

The total actualized budget is 310 (Case, processor, ram, mobo, and storage).

I chose the Msi board because of the cost, layout (connectors are on the edges of the board), and color scheme. The ASrock was a bit too colorful for the blue case and the gigabyte was too expensive.

Ram; Avexir is still semi-new and from what I can gather they're alright. Chosen Primarily because of cost and blue lighting to match exterior color of case.

Pending to order is the exhaust/intake fan and CPU cooler. I know this processor doesn't output to much heat but I'd rather be safe than sorry. I'm leaning towards the pancake blower because I'm considering switching the only fan to intake (most reviews state this produces best temps). I''m thinking a high pressure static fan such as the noctua or gentle typhoon. For CPU cooler the Cryorig c7. With a low profile CPU cooler rather than a tower cooler airflow shouldn't be so constricted.

Thoughts?
