My review for this PC (based on the lack of the part of the description where you say what are you going to use the PC for):

  • CPU: i7 6700K. Best gaming performance you can get with a CPU. Can be easily overclocked. Maybe a bit expensive, but worth the money. 9/10
  • CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S. It's not THAT expensive for the Premium product you get. Personally, I love its design and the colors choice. The heatsink is the best **** you can get. 10/10
  • Motherboard: ASRock H170M-ITX/DL. Comes with a lot of features and is very solid. ASRock, a great motherboards brand. Sadly, the SFF makes it very expensive and overpriced. 8/10
  • RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2 X 8GB) DDR4-2133. It follows the color scheme, so it's OK. I would've gone with something of higher quality, like Corsair. 7.5/10
  • SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB. Any 850 EVO is worth the price; the INSANE performance you get with this is incredible. 10/10
  • HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1TB 7200RPM: Good HDD. Good brand (WD). 8/10
  • GPU: EVGA GTX 760 2GB DUAL SC ACX. Long name lol . 2GB is not enough today for 1080p gaming. But, if you're playing games like MC, LoL, WoW, CS:GO... it'll do the job. At least, the card itself looks sexy. 6.5/10
  • Case: Fractal Design Define Nano S. This is one of my favorite Mini-ITX cases. Spectacular cable management optimization, high build quality, great materials, sexy design... No words. 10/10
  • PSU: Antec Basiq Plus 550W 80+. Doesn't matter if it is "only" 80+; it's Antec, it's the best **** you can get. 10/10
  • Case fans: Noctua NF-F12 PWM 55.0 CFM 120mm. Love these fans; you probably do love them too! 9/10
Final score: 9

+1

Thanks man, I plan on buying a Evga 1080 once they come back in stock.

he got a processor meant for overclocking with a motherboard that can't overclock, i don't think that's a very good decision. Also the video card feels outdated, op could have gotten an i5 6500(which is perfectly fine for gaming) along with a 970 or r9 380, keeping the motherboard the same. I'm assuming this was because he's migrating parts from an old rig?

Do you have any issue with GPU getting up to 80-82c when playing Overwatch?

I play Rust on max settings and my gpu temps is around 78-82c. Never played overwatch. While playing diablo 3 max settings it gets up to around 55c.

I love this build. Aspecially the combination of Noctua Fans with the GTX 1080 FE. +1 ;-)

How are the temps of the GPU? I am thinking about getting the Nano S with a GTX 1080 FE but I am a bit worried about the exhaust being a bit blocked by the plate between the two expansion slots, but maybe that is something that one could remove.

Hey Whats up, Awesome choice on your case and gpu :). Im not sure if it would make a difference or not if that fan was removed. I like to think that it helps since it pushes air straight up into the gpu. I don't have my gpu overclocked and it runs anywhere from 75-82 on full load. for my fans i have a total of 5 in my case. 1 cpu fan and 4 others. cpu fan is connected to 1 header. and the other 4 into the other header. Its a plug that splits into 2 then i add 2 more splitters for a total of 4 plugs. The splitters came with the noctua fans i use.

Hi there.

Do you only have 1 FAN connector on your motherboard, since you connected them all to the same, or is there a reason for that?

I currently do:

CPU to F_CPU 2 back fans to F_FAN1 1 front fan + 1 bottom fan to F_FAN2
