Originally I wanted to use Bitfeanix's Colossus-Mini case, but believe that ventilation would have been an issue; thus, I switched to the Prodigy case. This pc will double as a gaming rig and everyday use. I don't know what the benefits of overclocking is and whether I need it as I play FPS like battlefield 3 as well as league of legends. Therefore, I opted for a cool running i5 4690S. I will not be using any after-market cooling or fans. I will install a SSD and use a 1 TB external HD.
One question I had was whether I should opt for the Z87i or H97i mobo (they are both about the same price). I'll appreciate any other comments that you may have regarding the parts that I will use. Thanks.
