I've been planning this out for ages now and I finally think that this if the finalized build.

Note:

-The case comes with one 200mm intake and I have added a 140mm to the list as an exhaust.

-Only a 500GB SSD is there just now but I will probably get a 1TB HDD (or another 500GB SSD) later for mass storage.

-The monitor is from Ebay and seems like good price to performance.

-The DRP3 cooler does tightly fit inside the Evolv ITX (I've seen a build with a Noctua NH-D15) and I think that it will look nicer than a big AIO radiator.

So yeah. Any opinions or things I should change about the build would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks

Love it!

And yes, it will probably look better with a water-cooler, but damn son, if you can fit a DRP3 and at THAT price.

Maybe a "SilentWings 2" as outtake.

Thanks for the praise! I think I will swap the Corsair exhaust fan for a 140mm Silent Wings 2 one, it'll go nicer with the DRP3 and probably be quieter too :D
