I went with a mITX build to save as much space as possible, and to also make it much easier for myself if and when I move.
The end result is a decently capable machine on a budget, with room for upgrades in the future.
I wouldn't change anything about this build on the budget that I had, but if I could add more, I would definitely get a nicer CPU cooler than the stock one (this case can fit a 120mm rad AIO cooler).
Just a solid motherboard. BIOS is easy to navigate, feature set is impressive, and it looks really clean. The placement of the USB2.0 and front audio headers are a little odd, but didn't really have a problem with those. There was also no interference between my GPU backplate and the RAM slots (This seems like a non-issue, but I've seen it be a problem on some other motherboards).
Great GPU! Even though it's about 10 dollars more than it's competitors, it boasts a super clean aesthetic, the backplate is fantastic, and the Sapphire logo which lights up looks amazing. 0 RPM fans at idle is a great feature too.
Great case to build in! It's a bit of a hassle to remove the rectangular panel off the top, and perhaps the build quality could be better, but nothing was detrimental to the final build and at this price I can't really complain. The power button is nice and clicky, the internal layout is well thought out, and I never felt that it was difficult to build in despite the fact that it is so small.
I would recommend going with an SFX power supply and using the SFX to ATX adapter from Silverstone, as this gives you so much more room to breathe.
7 year warranty, almost never spins up, quality packaging. Corsair have done a great job with this PSU, you will not be disappointed! The only complaint I would make if I had to make one is that there isn't enough of a variety of cables included. For example I expected to see 2-3 variations of SATA cables (1 end, 2 ends, 4-5 ends, etc). However considering this is an SFX power supply, it's understandable that they wouldn't include too many extras.
Super quiet, even at max RPM (1100). Build quality is superb, and the inclusion of the colored rings is a huge bonus.
