Description

Originally this build started life as a £500 gaming machine housed in a Cooler Master Elite 130 case, i built it to replace my Xbox 360. I thought I'd go down the M-ITX route - reason being that I wanted to have it in the living room and connected to the TV.

After a lot of thinking i decided against the GTX960 in the hope of having something more future proof, so I purchased an Asus Strix GTX 970 happily playing most of my games on high/ultra settings at 60fps @ 3840 x 2160 on our LG TV - I've not noticed any input lag apart from in Mad Max which i managed to resolve by tweaking some settings.

During its life in its original case I managed to swindle a free processor swap from an i5-4590 to an i7-4770, short story it was taken from a new work PC as we didn't need the computing power - hence the low price for this part.

The prices are listed as the purchase price i paid for them inclusive of VAT & Postage where applicable - I have an MSDN Sub through my work which is why Windows 10 is listed as £0.00

The compatibility filter lists the GTX 970 as possible interfering with the case & the H80i GT not fitting - i have had no issues with this as can be seen in the pictures.

Cheers buddy, the old case was a nightmare for cable management, at least with this case there is a gap near the PSU to tidy up the excesses.
