SFX is smaller and you might need to drill a couple holes to screw it into the case or get an adaptor for SFX to ATX PSU
I like the Corsair SF450/SF600
. Other options from ATX are RM550x
and EVGA 550 G2. They all have hybrid fan mode.
Parts are always a preference and the partpicker doesn't have all parts I might use.
There is not much to choose the board. Cooler I picked 2 of my favorite that have far better price performance than the old huge Noctua.
I don't think you will notice the 3000 RAM vs 2400 RAM but the difference is like 10 EUR?PCPartPicker part list

I would go with H7 Universal since it's smaller and shouldn't have an issue in this tiny ITX case unlike the bigger coolers that have around 160mm height and may not always fit as who knows how FD measures the true clearance.Motherboard: Asus Z170I PRO GAMING Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard

. I don't think the updated Leadex based GL and GX are available yet.
If you want SFX take Corsair SF450 or SF600
, they are better than the Silverstone 500 and have better price/performance.Case Fan: Noctua NF-F12 PWM 55.0 CFM 120mm Fan

I think Noctua fans are overpriced, if you search shops you can find decent fans and fill the whole case with them for the price of 1 Noctua fan. I got my 140mm 1000rpm fans for like 4EUR each and they are quieter than stock FD fans. 22EUR for 1 Noctua is just a rip off. Again fans are personal preference.Total:

Personally I would fill front with 2x140mm, bottom 120mm, rear 120mm, or what ever the largest fans fit.
With PSU a SF450 should be tiny compared to ATX, it is still hybrid fan, and you could just mount it on the base of the case instead of floating in the air with an adaptor bracket. Drilling 3 3mm holes should be a piece of cake if you cannot reuse some of the already present PSU mount holes.Edited by JackCY - 6/17/16 at 7:35am
