Description

I build this ITX for upgrade my ATX case from 2008 with I7 920 processor and Radeon HD 7870.

I want it for home use and casual gaming at 1440p

I want this configuration for at least 8 years (psu mobo cpu and ram). Maybe upgrade disks, cooler or graphic card in 4 years. It depends products on market.

CPUs from 8 years ago are barely usable for gaming today (as a result of leaps in performance and game requirements), but given how slowly CPU performance has been increasing over the past few years, I think it's safe to say Skylake will be relevant for 8 years or more (especially with an overclock).

Thats a little bit of a fallacy...q6600 still has enough processing power to play games today.

Say that some parts are not new, ssd hd and h100i are from my old 920

Great looking setup! What monitors are those, and what stand(s) are you using?

The monitors are both 27” 2560 x 1440, primary monitor is Dell U2713HM and secondary is “CrossOver 27Q LED” a cheapest korean brand, but good.

Each monitor with a TV support mounted in the wall, exactly this: http://www.pccomponentes.com/equip_soporte_tv_23__55__vesa_400x400_max_35kg.html

Previously I bought a Artic Z2, but I return it, for 2x27 is not good, for 2x24 maybe, one suport for one monitor more stable.

Did you have to remove the HDD cage? I couldn't fit the PSU and cables without removing the HDD cage, and am losing out the storage I need.

I'm gonna do a similar build soon. Which rear fan did you use?

Was hoping to see the back of the mobo. I have a similar Thermaltake CPU cooler (Water 3.0 240mm) and that metal plate on the back of the Maximus VIII Impact is making it set very high (it's horizontal in the Corsair 380t case)

Yes, some new photos, and new fans SP120 PWD for radiator, simply with white ring and rubber corners looks better.
