Even more extreme is tweaking the installation image, I was able to trim Windows 7 to a bit under 4GB that way when I was installing it on a netbook with an 8GB SSD several years ago.

I just realised that I use sleep, not hibernate, so that's a good idea. I'll have a look at the page file size, but I think I already moved the pagefule to my HDD completely. There are some things that I can't work around. Visual Studio needs a few GB on the system partition, no matter where you install it. Thanks for the helpful tips!

For a machine that only needs to stream videos and access a file server, 30GB is plenty. If my servers weren't managed via Active Directory and Group Policy, I would use linux and maybe boot from a 4GB USB stick.

I guess Windows Server allows control over what kinds of driver packages are preinstalled and stuff like that more easily than the retail versions of Windows. But yeah, it's only something like 12GB or so when you install it, so it seems reasonable that there is a way to keep it there.

I can't decide between the Node 202 and the Cooltek Coolcube (no maxi, no mini, just Coolcube).

They are both around 10l.

The coolcube is half the price and looks much, much nicer.
The Node 202 would fit in my luggage much better and would support a bigger gpu at some point.

The Jonsbos are more for saving desk space or for HTPC duty in the living room,where they look great. Not really a layout for carrying around

Will a 300w PSU suffice for a 65w i5 and a GTX 970?

The 970 is rated at 145w, which leaves 30w headroom for the rest of the headroom (assuming 80% efficiency).

The case was a bit larger than I was hoping it would be, but it still fits behind the TV where it needs to.

The efficiency rating actually works the otherway around, meaning you will have 90 Watts remaining for drives and fans ect

EDIT: And so will definitely be okay

Great, thanks. That means I will stop scanning eBay for 960s and try and find a 970.

Added. Strange you chose a htpc case and hide it behind the tv, and you got the front facing the inside.

I would suggest the node 202. I have the jonsbo C2 (which is similar to the Coolcube) and it does not have good cooling. If you'll be carrying it around, then the 202 would be beter.

I would not run a 970 on 300w. Which 300w are you referring to? The 970 reference uses 2 6pins connectors.
