Mini ITX Build - Page 3

post #21 of 37
The problem is you're insisting on doubling the budget for no reason. Well, you have a reason, it's just not a very good one. Who cares if the components were handed down? How does that change anything?

Looks like I have to clear things up a bit. The person currently owns and operates an HP Pavilion HPE h9-1120t Phoenix. This computer has a 3770 and a 7950 in it, both of these parts are going to be scrapped off the computer and used in this build. So those two components are already owned and make sense to use as they are still very competent and provide good performance still to this day, obviously there is better hardware out there but exceeding the budget is not a good alternative. The 7950 will be replaced by a 290X, namely my current 290X that I am using. This replacement will happen once I buy myself a new GPU sometime this upcoming winter. I am not gaining any profit from all of these, I am simply helping out and building the rig, I am not selling any of my parts. I am also giving away my Kingston HyperX Predator modules so that the person wont have to buy any RAM.

I hope everyone now gets the idea.

I think a laptop is was you need, possibly with the external GPU setup with monitors at both locations, or TV's whatever suits your preference.

I already have a laptop, check my signature. This build is for another person.

Could you recommend some specific models? I have checked a few websites and some Swiss hardware stores still have some old Mini ITX 1155 motherboards for sale.

You'll also want a SSD in this build.

I will get the 1TB WD Blue HDD thumb.gif

I have a questions concerning RAM, The Kingston HyperX Predator RAM is high profile, there is nothing mentioned in the case specifications concerning the maximum supported RAM module height. Is it going to be a problem managing to fit those into the 380T?

Would be great if you could say which ones you have available, I could recommend a few, but if they aren't available its pretty pointless.

Ram height shouldn't interfere with the case at all, and it should be fine with the cooler too considering you're using a CLC.

Thank you a lot! I appreciate your opinion thumb.gif

Pardon the extended absence.

So after checking the availability of required components in Switzerland and considering the made suggestions I have come up with the following specifications:

CPU: i7-3770
CPU Cooler: Intel TS13X
Motherboard: Asus H61M-K
RAM: Kingston HyperX Predator 2 x 8
GPU: 7950
PSU: Corsair SF 600 watt (SFX model not available)
HDD: 1TB WD Blue
Case: Corsair 380T (Purchased)

I havent found any other Mini ITX 1155 motherboards in Switzerland and the Asus H61M-K will be ordered from Germany.

So how does the whole thing look? Is everything compatible? Or did I miss something.

How are you planning to fit the Asus H61M-K in the Corsair 380T? Its an mATX board.

Yeah, good question tongue.gif

Just scanned through the specifications and didn't realize its a Micro ATX board. 380T is for Mini ITX. It may be impossible to fit and even if possible probably a pain in the butt.Good call.

The thing is that the Mini ITX 1155 boards I found are not available for sale anywhere in the vicinity. So far I came across the following boards and none of them are available in Switzerland.

ASRock H61MV-ITX
ASUS P8H61-I
Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI

What about the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe? Expensive but looks like my only remaining choice. The minor problem is that it supports only RAM speeds up to 1333 MHz.

The 1366 MHz is the fastet official speed Intel supports
But that does not mean its the fastest speed as Asus and the others are free to add supports for RAM as fast as they like.

Or did i misunderstand you?

I find using SFX psu in a gigantic itx case completely pointless unless you're planning to build sub-15 litre setup later. There are good units like Rm550x that are better in every way

Yeah I am aware of that but other boards support at least 1600. The other problem of the board apart from its $200 price is that it is temporarily not in stock on Amazon.de the only place I can order it from. All these inconvenience just pushes me to go for a normal ATX build but then there would be no point in building a new system.
