The Atomic seems like a reskin of the Rajintek Metis, hopefully that will make it more available in Europe. But why did they choose to not give any ventilation options except for the bottom intake? That GPU will be burning hot and loud as a leafblower, we know that from the Metis! This case could be so good but nobody released a halfway decently ventilated version of it!

I'm building a light office and light YouTube/video machine for a friend.

No gaming all. Web browsing, word documents, title applications, that's it.

Requirements are a 250gb ssd and 8gb of ram.

I was thinking an amd 7600k in an Antec isk 110?

Any thoughts on this? Is the psu strong enough?

Which motherboard do you recommend? Wifi isn't a must, but a nice bonus.

Budgeting about $500

Go AM1 instead. Athlon 5350 + the ASRock mITX board with the 19V DC jack + 256+GB Crucial MX100 + 1x8GB DDR3. The cost comes up to less than $400 in my head, giving you a lot of headroom for a case, bigger SSD, or more RAM (because why not?). Doesn't need a PSU other than a transformer, and can fit in a very small case (e.g. Mini-box M350, which I think is a bit smaller than the Antec).

What is the advantage of the athalon other than cost?

Lower power. Less heat. Can be made quieter.

Nothing in particular. It's overall a lot weaker than the Kaveri option, but have you seen how Atoms in tablets handle Windows 8? Answer is really well, and Jaguar is similar.

What about the graphics side? I really want this to age well. The Antec case has a 120watt power supply built in if I go that route.

Does my mITX build, in a "Sharkoon QB ONE Mini ITX Case", in my sig rig count?

Its 225mmx180mmx368mm which is 14.9L by my maths biggrin.gif

Got quite a lot packed in that tiny little chassis too!

G3258 overclocked to 4.5 GHz
Cooled by an alpha cool 240L Eisenberg cooler (with EK vardars)
AMD 7970, which I might replace with my 290X either way it'll be water cooled soon!
Silverstone SFF-L 500W power supply - which really needs the cables to be shortened!

Hope you like it!

True. That allows for easy upgrades and any AM1 board that fits. Graphics aren't the greatest, of course. There's two GCN compute units vs Kaveri's up-to-eight. But that's enough for 4k @ 30FPS (no DisplayPort for 60FPS) and multiple high-res monitors. Graphics are fine for videos and office work.

Not sure what case you're referring to. The ISK 110 has no space for a PCIe card, and only comes with a maximum of a 95W PicoPSU.

The ISK 310 may be a better fit for you if you prefer the option for PCIe expandability, in which case it takes one single-slot, half-height card.
