I really like the new Define C, but I am also considering the Mini (mATX) version. I will never have more than 2-way SLI, so I could do with a mATX if there are any reasonably priced, good overclockers out there.
If I go for Mini - perhaps I should stick to a Founders Edition GPU? Chose the Gigabyte because it is the cheapest 1080 in Norway at the moment.
I'm not in a rush, so I will wait for Black Friday to see if there are any extreme offers fitting my build. I might also wait for the new Kaby Lake CPUs.
I should probably mention that noise is a priority for me, so I will stick to aircooling even though I will want to be able to OC occationally for some games and certain work tasks.
