Good day all!

Since my Hydra 2 build I have been itching to go build a small beastly itx and had a couple of spare parts laying around so I decided to start a new build log to put my thoughts in order.

Current order list (May or May not be used):
Case: NCASE M1 PICKED
CPU: i5 4690k It's now an i7 4790k The 4790k got confiscated. Back to 4690k. PICKED
Mobo: Asrock z97 itx PICKED.
GPU: Sapphire 290x with EK waterblock <=== All ready in hand... gonna rip it off of my Hydra 2 build since Quad Crossfire is mainly for benchs and that system will be getting an upgrade soon.Scrapped. One of my 290x on my hydra build went up in smoke. Got a placeholder 290 Tri-X. PICKED THIS IS A PLACEHOLDER UNTIL THE 380X Series DROP! 290x with ek waterblock installed!
Ram: Searching for some Samsung Wonder Ram OR I am gonna go for some Kingstone 2x4GB since it will fit the color scheme of the mobo. Kingston Hyper Fury 2x4GB CL10 1866 in the house! PICKED
PSU: CHANGED Silverstone SFX 600watt PICKED!
SSD: 500GB Samsung EVO <== Might go for a Crucial MX100 1TB Went for a Transcend M.Sata 256gb. PICKED Gonna leave the door for 500gb upgrade for games in the future in the case.
Watercooling parts already allocated.. 95% from EK:
XT240
EK-DCP 2.2 with res OUTSIDE OF THE CASE
CPU Block and GPU blocks all ready in stock.
All fittings from EK.
2xTitan Kukri Fans from my previous build.


Went for an H220 with EK Vardar Fans (Swiftech fans will be relocated as case fans).

Currently aiming to have enough cooling for a highly clocked 290x 290 (Aiming for 1180mhz 1150mhz on AIR) and the CPU at 4.5ghz.

The Rig will be mainly for Lan Parties and will be connected to a Qnix 32in 2k Monitor.

Node 304 (Very tight Fit... No idea how I can fit rads in it... unless I mod them on the outside) <== this might happen.... a 360 rad will fit on the outside biggrin.gif
