After spending years investing on gaming laptop, I realize I didn't travel that much and therefore want to find a compact PC system for my home theater setup.
Case The RVZ01 utilizes every inches inside and has one of the best positive air flow design.
CPU Without complex calculation or video rendering I decided to go with i5-4690k. I am planning to do only a mind overclock but this CPU was bundled with Asus Z97I-Plus at MicroCenter for great price.
CPU Cooler I choose this due to its low profile which still allows me to install slim case fan.
Motherborard I almost choose Gigabyte Gaming 5 but select Asus Z97I-Plus using the bundle deal from MicroCenter during black friday sale.
Memory Really want to go with Ripjaw Z but because it is quite difficult to fit a good AIO water cooling inside this case so I had to choose low profile ram to make sure it fit with my air cooler.
Storage Not much to say. Got a good deal from Newegg for both SSD and HDD.
Video Card GTX 970 was the best card bang-for-buck during that time. I like the semi-passive function of MSI. Too bad there is no backplate.
Power Supply The highest watt SFX PSU that should supply more than enough power for future upgrade.
Case Fan I used two bundled SilverStone case fans to cool the GPU compartment. The Prolimatech is providing overall airflow for both CPU cooler as well as other components on motherboard.
Accessory I also purchased StarTech's "6in Slimline SATA to SATA Adapter with Power - F/M" for Bluray Drive to reduce cable clutter. With this cable, you can use the same SATA power cable from the PSU to connect to slimline drive thus keep Molex cable away.
