A temporary ITX build

by dM@n



CPU Clock Rate


CPU Temperature While Idle

30.0° C


Most of the parts bought were from sales during November. While it is a bit strange to have enthusiast-grade hardware in a case like this, I only did it because I wanted a temporary computer for schoolwork using parts that I plan on using for my future more expensive build.

How many watts does this PC take up

133 look at the price breakdown and it shows that

how was it building in that case?

dM@n submitter 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

Not too bad. I didn't have a lot of stuff to put in there, so it was relatively straight forward. Cable management options are pretty much non-existent though.

Why switch the case? I think it'd be pretty cool to have a gaming rig inside of a case like that. Just get that low profile noctua heatsink (not sure of the name) and a reference design gpu so all of the heat is output through the back of the card instead of out into the case.

edit: Just noticed the included psu. Still would be cool if you had the initiative to mod the case.

How would you fit a GPU?

The case could fit a gpu, it looks like it has just enough height clearance for something like a 7770. Only conflict i see now that i look at the pictures is the one pci slot cut out on the case, so you'd have to mod or just buy a single slot fanless 7770.

I didn't know they made single slot fanless 7770s. Link?

I think it's the 7750, not the 7770. Could be, I can't remember. Also the GT 640, but the 7750 and 7770 are superior to that

I'm curious as to what an ITX or mini ITX is compared to an ATX/mATX. I'm pretty new to building.

dM@n submitter 1 Build 2 points 48 months ago

ITX is just a motherboard form-factor that is even smaller than mATX. It usually doesn't have as many features as mATX due to size restrictions (examples include single PCIe expansion slot, only two DIMM slots, etc.)

Now that you've had this for several months, how is it under full load? I want to do an i5 Haswell build for streaming so I will have basically the same components with the addition of a half-height HDMI capture card.

  1. Are temperatures reasonable under full load?
  2. Have you experienced any problems with the PSU under full load?
