Mini ITX

So I am going to build a mini ITX gaming computer with an i5 and a gtx 970. I was just wondering how challenging it is to build in one of these cases. I have built my own computer before but never in a case this small. Thanks

Depends on the case. something like the Xigmantek Nebula is hard to build in for me.

Ok so it's not to challenging but does getting compact components make the computer less powerful than the full sized versions? And is it too hard to cool?

No and depends.

you cant put a liquid cooler in 1 whole mini itx case but in some cases you can fit a Hyper 212 Evo.

So mostly the same performance? And I know that you can't fit a liquid cooler in my case but will it be cool enough with an air cooler?

I like the Cooler Master 130 or the Cougar QBX.
