GTX 1080 HTPC - Project Fat Guy in a Little Case (Build sanity check)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Any thoughts on the part list is greatly appreciated, I'm pulling the trigger on it tomorrow.thumb.gif

The goal is for it to be a living room 4k gaming system and occasional HTPC. It should be small and nearly silent while still strong enough to power a Vizio P series (4k).

Part List
PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/cFBfHN

CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ B&H)
CPU Cooler: CRYORIG C7 40.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($37.49 @ Amazon)

Notes
  • I value quality parts over saving a few dollars here or there and am looking for a well rounded system.
  • AC Wireless, bluetooth, and (potentially depending on all of your advice) m.2 are important and large factors in choosing my motherboard.
  • I will likely add in a GTX 1080 (non blower) once the stock and price settle. (the below is a placeholder)
  • I already have a large amount of redundant external storage; so, no real need for more than 250GB for the OS, a few apps, and the game I'm currently hooked on.

Any advice will be much appreciated for this retired OCN'er. Thanks!

Edit:
* I have updated a few small things. With the change to the Node 202 case, the PSU and heatsink needed to be updated (sorry Shilka). Both of parts I'm uncertain of and am headed to the PSU section now...

Don't see anything wrong with it, but as it is an HTPC, you could potentially get a 1tb SSD (price has dropped a lot) and use it as the main storage device for all your games/movies.

A good point, but I have external storage already. I'll add that quick note. Thanks.

Two things that could be improved and the first is the cooler as the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo is old and really not all that great or quiet
The Cryorig H7 is less then $10 more and is a newer better and more quiet cooler

The second thing is the PSU as the EVGA SuperNova GS is rather mediocre when it comes to ripple suppression and voltage regulation
The Corsair RMx or the EVGA SuperNova G2 are much better units that dont cost all that much more.

I decided to go with the Node 202 case and just spend the little extra on the 6600k... That really limits my PSU choices due to size of the Node 202 and means the H7 is now too large. (sorry Shilka).

I added in the Corsair SF 600 and Cryorig C7. Both of parts I'm uncertain of and am headed to the PSU section now...
Thoughts?

That case looks like a console o.o

That's the idea. It Should blend right into the media center under the tv. Paired with a Bluetooth connected dualshock, it should have most benefits of a pc and a console but sadly booting into windows.

Now we just need Microsoft to release an variant if their Xbox OS that is installable on PCs and can run non universal apps in a universal window.

I'm getting ready to migrate my HTPC into a Node 202. I'm curious what temps you will get on the 6600K with the C7.
