Mini Itx gaming

Hey guys I’m getting ready to build my first gaming pc, recently moved out of my parents house, got a place to rent, and shortly after my best friend moved in with me.


We are both going off to collage / tech school within the next 6 months or so.

I wanted to make a Mini itx build in a bitfenix prodigy case so that I can easily take it with me when I move. My build is as follows.



I5 -3570k

XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1866

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M2 RS620-SPM2E3-US 620W

Corsair H100 hydro

Kingston Hyper X 240G

Seagate barracuda 3TB

And I’m going to use a Samsung external dvd/cd reader/writer just to get windows installed so I can fit the H100 in the top of the prodigy case


Any and all changes will be welcomed; I don’t really have a price range for I am ordering parts at a slow pace.


You could just install Windows from a USB if you don't already have the DVD drive

really consider upgrading the motherboard to a asus p8z77-i because in my little mini itx build I was able with that motherboard to get to 4.4ghz on a 3570k and a h40 cooler in a silverstoneft03 mini

This is what I would be building in that case if it were me
