Ok, I did not really need a new computer as I currently have/use a Maingear laptop that is only 2 years old and can play most games very well. But as most of you I love setting up and building PC's and wanted to build a Mini ITX.
It was a very uneventful easy build really, no major issues with any of the hardware. The NZXT Manta case is one you either love or hate, I love it obviously! It is amazing with cable management and just looks awesome. But yes for a mini ITX board it is huge. I did not want to deal with any of the dangers of liquid cooling (I own two fish tanks so don't need any more leaks/floods). The cryorig C7 is a great fan, and love the white fan blades. Was disappointing for some reason expected an LED light on it but it was just a nice looking compact fan. Keeps the temps very very low, on idle it runs at 37c to 39c. While gaming (Without a GPU). The reason I do not have a GPU is I decided to wait since the new 1080 are coming out, I am either going to invest in one or just take advantage of the lower price on the existing cards. And realistically the games I play on Steam are requiring more CPU then GPU so I am able to play Stellaris for instance without an issue with just the inboard gpu. As far as the build, I did experience an issue with the Gigabyte motherboard. It did not have any LAN or WIFI drivers which was a pain as I could not really go online to update anything until I downloaded the wifi drivers on a usb and installed them. Then I did notice that the wifi was turning on an off for no apparent reason only on that PC. So I hooked up computer with LAN instead. For someone that was hoping to use WIFI that could pose a serious problem buying a motherboard that is supposed to offer reliable wifi and obviously in my case it did not... I added two BitFenix Magnetic LED-Strip Cable, one red one white to finish off the look (besides the GPU obviously). Overall very satisfied with the look and performance of this build! Feel free to ask questions.
