Put together in 2 weeks. Always wanted to do a Mini-iTX build.
CPU - Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Bought from frys when they had a daily coupon. Super fast!! Power on to desktop in around 4s flat
Cooler Master RR-HT2-28PK-R1 54.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing Nic cooler for the price. Have raised a request in CM site to see if I can get another 92mm to make it a push pull config. Lets see
ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1150 Nice little mobo. Has all the bells and whistles I needed. Nicely laid out.
PNY 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Wanted something faster than 1600 to go with Z97 mobo. So far so good
Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" SSD Bought from ebay with a$15 off fathers day coupon. Hopefully this evo would be better than the 840 evo with the firmware bugs
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 4GB Superclocked ACX 2.0 Bought from new egg with discover incase prices fall :). Might be overkill for my rig but wanted decent future proof. Always wanted to buy a top of the line GPU. My previous best was the 9600GT :P
Thermaltake Core V1 Mini ITX Tower Gem of a case for the price with good cooling, options for cable management. Enjoyed building it
EVGA 550W G2 Fully modular. nice and quiet
Noctua NF-F12 PWM 55.0 CFM 120mm This thing oozes quality. Absolutely beautiful and silent. No wonder this is twice as expensive compared to other fans. Using a PWM splitter for running these fans.
Dell P2314H 23.0" Bought from Dell outlet. No complaints yet
Audio Running from optical out ->Audio GD NFB 11->Sennheiser HD 650 :)
Need to run some benchmarks now. CPU temp seems a bit higher compared to other builds. Considering this thing is surviving in the Arizona heat (Phoenix), happy with idle temp as of now. Will add more details later
