Ultimate lower power and compact CAD/Video editing/whatever else needs an i7 build.

This system is perfect for those who want a very powerful build in a compact space. This case is extremely tiny and can be mounted on the back of monitor. It features only 1 fan that is on the CPU that is extremely quiet and you can barely hear it. The color scheme is black and white to fit in with the environment around it. You have support later on to put in 16gb of RAM from the 8gb it has currently. The i7 6700t is a low power variant of the 4c/8t top of the line Skylake CPU. This has 500gb of purely SSD storage for short load times and quick boot ups. This system will draw a maximum of 90 watts from an outlet thanks to the power converter board built in.

    Good build, but you might want a GPU for some rendering stuff :P

    It was more of a suggestion to anyone who wants to build this to get a bigger case if they plan on doing that.

    maybe an r9 nano will fit or maybe a low-profile 750 ti

    Not within the power requirements, plus that isn't the problem. There is no PCI slots

    I only see one pricing of that CPU and it is at $400, so this is a $800 build. I would like to see better for this price range. I bet it would preform quite well but I would not trust splitting hairs on the pico PSU. You have no margin for error in a 90w system with a 90w PSU, and that is assuming this can push 100% of what it is rated for which is not likely. I am aware you will rarely hit that 90w max, but you will be cruising at around 70% usage (70ish watts) at idle which is not healthy. Get a higher wattage power brick (say 120w) and converter (don't know what they are called) that can handle that wattage and I would be onboard. This tower is really for low wattage CPU's, anything this powerful will not do well in this case.

    That PSU is %100 efficient, cos it's a notebook style PSU :D

    It's not going to pull 90W, even constantly...

    It will most likely idle in the ballpark of 70w, which is well over 50% utilization. That would not be healthy for the PSU. And not to mention being rated for 90w there is an understood loss as it is not 100% efficient, so you may have a brown out if you ever do throttle the system. This is cutting it a bit close for my taste.
