rluker5 No problem. It gave me a chance to show off some toys.

I appreciate your advice and expertise - you have saved me the headache of returning an unworkable case. I will have to figure out whether it makes sense to buy the smallest case I can get away with such as the suggested inWin case or step up to a larger one such as fractal core 500.

I am considering the following three mini ITX boards that support Broadwell C (in no particular order of interest):

MSI Z97I AC;
Gigabyte GA-Z97N-GAMING 5; and
ASUS MAXIMUS VII IMPACT.

Am I wrong assuming they will fit into the smallest case you have depicted on the left in the first picture, and that they support 5775c?

Something like this case might work: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0728DX73X..._t2_B07QD84J26 if the motherboard and or ram isn't too tall. It would also be able to take cpu coolers larger than 23mm. You may have to take measurements, but there are cases out there. Also tiny cases need tiny cpu coolers that don't dissipate much heat. The 23mm high one in my slim itx claims it dissipates 65w, but it is really like 50w so if you start to use the igpu for gaming the temps are going to get pretty high. I run the 4980hq in mine at 4.0ghz/1.13v in balanced power plan. If I bench it at 1.13v the temps start to run away with stuff like firestrike, but it will hold 1.3v for short bursts like userbenchmark. It is still snappy, quiet and puts my 7700hq laptop to shame, I just don't load it too heavy.

The Fractal core 500 in the next pic has space for a Scythe Mugen cpu cooler and can run that 5775c at 4.2ghz/1.35v all day.

There are trade offs for both.

As for the motherboard compatibility I've heard of some troubles with Gigabyte. Some have had troubles with Asus Maximus Hero, and I sometimes have troubles with mine, especially if I use sleep a lot sometimes a stable oc will lose it's stability. But other Asus seem to work well for others. The compatibility of Broadwell isn't the greatest across the 97 motherboards, so I don't have yes or no answers for how well those boards work.

Edit: This InWin should work pretty well: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LVV6WVU..._t1_B01N091225

Currently the system is:

i7 5775c with CM Hyper 212 EVO
Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1/USB 3.1
CM HAF 912 case with EVGA 750 G2
HyperX Fury 16GB 1866 RAM
Samsung 860 EVO 500GB ssd
Sapphire Radeon Vapor-X R9 280X

It's a great system, but it has been replaced as my main setup with an X99/6850k/32GB/1TB.

I don't want to sell my 5775c, but I also do not want it to lay around doing nothing. The rest of the system will get a 4770k or 4790k depending on what I can find, and probably will list it for sale locally or part out.

Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!
I'm guessing you will want to go with the pico psu adapters and smaller case. I don't see any slim itx motherboards for Broadwell around so you will have to go with a regular itx which will result in a slightly larger case.
There is a huge difference in itx case sizes so I've tossed in a couple of pics to give you a feel for scale. The tiny pc is a slim itx case I use in my office and is in my sig. The biggest one is also in my sig. The middle one is a fractal core 500 which is on the small side for housing a psu and dgpu. I've got a Nitro Fury in there right now and will transfer over my Aorus Waterforce 1080ti when i upgrade that. The tv is a 65". I'm guessing that the core 500 is too big for your stated tastes and the pics can help you decide if you want to go down that road or the pico psu/no dgpu road when shopping for parts. I know how it can be tempting to build something that has more options. The motherboard in the core 500 is an EVGA z97 stinger and runs the 5775c fine, just no edram oc, btw.

Yeah or hell, it’ll make a lean, mean, HTPC machine. I use mine for occasional [email protected] tasks with my wife’s old 1070 since I gave her my 1080 after getting a 1080 ti for myself.

Silverstone would be your go-to for any ITX psu’s or cases in my opinion, their stuff is top quality. As far as motherboards go really any ITX board would work as long as you have a Haswell chip to update the bios with. Just make sure its a 9 series board because 8 series don’t support Broadwell officially.

Also I feel you, mine is just sitting and collecting dust too but I don’t wanna part with my 5775C because its stupidily uncommon, but the board I have is pretty screwed up. It has been replaced by my 3900X and X570 but I just hate having it sitting there doing nothing.
