Sorry for the lack of photos and quality!, got a temporary setup until I can afford to add an additional monitor, keyboard and mouse to finish the setup!

Case: Bitfenix Pandora Core - Black

Small form factor, nice looking brushed aluminium case.

Mobo: MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC Mini ITX

Tiny motherboard with loads of added extras such as wifi and bluetooth. Due to its size the only issues i came across was a lot of cables had to go over my ram when on a bigger board the plugs would have been closer to the edges.

CPU: Intel Skylake i5-6600K

Best skylake unlocked processor for the money, as i didn't want to splash out an extra £100 for the i7. Overclocked to 4.5GHz.

Cooler: Corsair H100i Liquid cooler

One of the best water coolers currently around, as the case is so small water cooling is required unless you buy a low profile fan.

GPU: GTX 970 4GB

This GPU is the best performance to $$$. I played all my games max settings on 1080p. Very tight fit when trying to put the side panel back on. I had to heat the wires from my PSU to get them to bend and not push the side panel off.

Storage: Sandisk SSD 240GB & Seagate 2TB

Managed to get a bargain deal for the SSD over christmas and already had the 2TB seagate drive spare.

Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 2133mhz DDR4 - Red

I chose this ram only for its aesthetics. Overclocked it to 2666mhz.

PSU: Corsair 650W ATX

Got given this PSU from a family member and had no reason to buy a different one.

Hi man - love the build, really similar to the one I'm gonna build next week.

If you don't mind: I've bought the same PSU ( Corsair VS650 ) on April.

For an i5-6500 and a GTX 970, will be fine? Nothing is gonna pop right? THANKS!

Yep should be more than adequate for them, pretty much the same as my build
