I have been wanting to build a mini-ITX PC for a while now. I like my new computer but my days of wanting a big honking full tower on my desktop are over. As much as I love my 8350 for its price/performance, I don't really want a hot chip inside of a small case with few fans. I like having tons of airflow and keeping things cool. I have considered getting a Lian-Li like Logan has used in his videos or something like these Fractals:
As for mobo, I am liking my ASUS. This thing is packed to the gillz with awesomness and I love the AI suite, but for mini ITX, ASUS only has the Deluxe and Maximum and ~$200 seems like a lot for a mobo. I am open to suggestions in this area. I am also looking at the ASUS GTX760 Mini, is this a good choice for this build? I think their Nvidia cards are mini only.
Also, what are some good alternatives to the 212EVO? I doubt it will fit in most mini ITX cases and I want something with excellent cooling and very quiet since I will probably be OC'ing this build.
Here is my build so far minus the hard drives that will be cannibalized from my current PC so I can sell it as a working unit:
As for the 4770k or 4670k, I will make up my mind later down the road. If I do but this build it will be at least a few weeks out and will give me enough time to analyze a couple dozen benchmarks to see which CPU I want.
