Few questions: Mini-ITX build.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm helping my friend building a Lan-box/HTC computer for gaming world of warcraft. He's often traveling home in the weekends and the normal towercomputer is too big to take with him.

So I've found some components I'd like to use for the computer.

Case:Silverstone Sugo SG07B Mini-ITX Black
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel H55
Memory: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz 4GB CL8 (might pick something els, but they were really cheapo)
Graphic Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460 1GB WindforceTM
CPU: ????

And now the question. Which CPU should I go for? The i5 Quad i5-760 is 95watt and seems to high for the motherboard, so which dual core i5 should I go for?

Also will the 600w Bronze certified powersupply in the Silverstone case do the job for the GTX460?


Thanks a lot for looking. Best Regards Kriztoffer.

Right. I have the same motherboard and ram for my GF's build.
I run a corsair 400w psu
and this build has a HD4770.

I think you should use an i3 since they are a lot cheaper and can be oc'd

EDIT: even a 400w would do the system

How is the performance difference between the i3 and i5 cpu's? He got a budget so I wanted to pick the best parts I could without overdrawing the budget limit. he can afford a i5 so if they are better, we will go with one of those cpu's.

Aye, but there are not really many good ITX cases here in Norway and the Silverstone seems like a good choice and 600w won't limit anything for later upgrades.

Well if you have a budget for an i5 Defo go for an i5 but i dont see any difference between my crap load of i3's and i5.

Also you got a good point about the 600w!

Well the real million dollar question is what cooler are you going to run.I see no reason not to get the i5 if he can afford it.Better performance without overclocking,which is going to be limited depending on your cooling.

Also the i5 750 is a good choice. My mate has it at 4ghz and never complains. Can do 4.5 too and its a quad. And dont worry about the power draw!

i5 750 would be the perfect Cpu for your new build.

If you do decide to go for a dual core be sure to get one with hyperthreading. I'm pretty sure all the i5 dual cores have hyperthreading anyway..

I would personally just go for the quad though.

He will probably run stock speeds, so just use the stock cooler?

Seems like the only i5 quad I can find is i5 760 @ 95w

Just about any i5 is good, just make sure that its a native quad if the budget allows.

Also i dont know if your chosen case can accomodate a Corsair H70 Or H60? That about to come out.
