Null x Mini-ITX
« on: February 25, 2015, 01:06:55 AM »
As a few of you know I sold my old rig when I left my home city, I moved to Auckland to complete an engineering internship (which was a  hella fun experience btw).
Anyway I fly back to finish my honors year 27th of Feb so I am planning a new build, this will be my first venture into Mini-ITX.

Here's what I have ordered or have so far:
  • i7-4790k ('whattt GhoSt getting his first intel processor!')
  • Gigabyte Z97N-Gaming 5
  • Crucial 256GB m550 SSD
  • Xfx r9-290x double D
  • Corsair Ax-850
  • WD black 1tb x 2
  • 16 Kingston Hyper X Beast 2400MHz

At the moment I am scouting a inwin 901 for the case, so beaut. I could be swayed if anyone can recommend something good, I also need a good cooler for that CPU (and case). Anyway I will update you when I commence the build, which will hopefully be mid next week.

So exited.

Seems like a decent build. Do you plan on getting water cooling blocks for the ram and video card?

Wasn't planning a custom loop, maybe an AIO on the CPU, still undecided. Looking into rodents recommendations.

Built it and it's up and running, will take some better photos when I locate a camera.
