My only fear about SFF cases is upgrading. Is it really that much of a pain or nah? Like disconnecting components?

In some situations, yeah, it is. It is very dependent on the case you get, and the hardware your using. How often do you upgrade stuff?

Most SFF cases require the hardware to be installed and removed in a specific order, that's one of the trade-offs to SFF, that, and the cramped work space.

But if your one of those folks that is swapping HDDs, memory, trying out different GPU's and CPU coolers all the time, then I would recommend a test bench and maybe not an SFF case. I plan my SFF builds to be built and stay that way for a 12-24 month period usually, at least for my LAN rigs, so they get the most powerful stuff I can load into them for high end gaming at 1200p since I don't take my big monitors to LAN events. My HTPC builds go for even longer, since they are just DVR/video playback.

The only pain really is room to work, and that some parts have to come out for you reach others (smaller cases mostly). But when you finish building it, you'll never look at a full tower like 750D the same way ever again.

Good things come to those who wait.

It'll be fine. I run a i5 3450 on a stock cooler in a PC-Q07B which has pretty much zero airflow.
