Will the following parts fit into the FTZ01 case?

Hi, discovered this great site and forum recently. I'm hoping to build a small as possible robust and portable PC with a decent GPU. I am not sure if the following combination works in the case (it is more or less taken from the CustoMac Mini Deluxe list of Hackintoshes):

*Gigabyte GA-Z97N-WiFi

*Core i5-4690K

*Crucial Ballistix Tactical (16GB)

*Samsung 850 EVO 120GB

*Corsair CS 550 Watt

*EVGA GT 740 SC

*Thermaltake Slim X3 Low Profile (Air)I'm not sure if the cooler is needed.

Thanks for your help with this. It's much appreciated, Cheers, Upbeat1

They should, but you will want some better parts

What in particular would you recommend I upgrade? I might be able to increase my budget a bit. Keep in mind that ideally I would like the option to Hackintosh it so ease of that plays a role too.

Tell me your budget, and if you need an OS/Mouse/keyboard/monitor ect, US/CAD ect...?

Could potentially stretch it to 1300 USD if it is better value for money. Don't need OS,mouse,keyboard or a monitor. My aim really is to build a small backpack-portable machine (maybe transported a couple of times a week) that packs a good amount of 'value for money' performance wise.

Do you want to overclock, or are you okay with a locked processor?

Open to the idea of over clocking but concerned about heat build up which I believe can be an issue in a mini ITX case. I am hoping to change the ftz01 case to a Dan-A4 case as soon as that is out, not sure how the cooling is in that one

I've gone ahead and made an alternative build list with some upgrades. Does this make more sense? Is it still all compatible and going to fit inside the case (hoping for future compatibility with the Dan A4 case as well)? Thanks again for any input at all.
