Decided to do a "budget" mini-itx build that I put on a sofa table behind our couch in the family room. I purchased the following for the build;
Gigabyte Aorus Z690I Ultra Lite - ~$170
I5 12600K - ~$200
Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE White - ~$42
TEAMGROUP T-Force Delta 32GB 6000mhz CL30 DDR5 - ~$188
Kingston NV2 1tb M.2 SSD - ~$55
Cooler Master NR200P White - ~$85
EVGA 750w SFX PSU - ~$90
Radeon RX590 - Free from son, he upgraded to RX6750 for Christmas
I put this all together a couple weeks ago on a Saturday. I'm loving the look of the NR200, it's so small and doesn't look horrible sitting on the table. I also bought an arm to mount the monitor on the table which works great. Never done a mini-itx build, it was a pain routing all the wires. In the end I said fuck it since I'm not using the glass panel so it looks a bit messy under the PSU. For the cooling, all I have is one 120mm fan blowing out at the top and one 120mm fan on the heatsink pulling air from the back. I couldn't fit the second 120mm fan on the top because of the heatsink, also why the heatsink only has one fan as the second that it came with is too thick. I'm going to need to order a couple lower profile fans. Still, the temps on the CPU look great. Running some stress tests, the highest I've seen it get after more than 10 minutes is in the low 50s C. I'll eventually upgrade the GPU if I see a good deal, not planning on putting anything ridiculous in it.
PS-The day I put it together I had to run to my workbench in the basement to grab some adapters and on the way up the stairs I heard a big crash. My 2yo got up to see what I was building and when he heard me coming up the stairs shoved the PC off the table in a panic. I had everything in it, just routing cables at the time. The case has a dent on the front panel and was slightly skewed, luckily none of the hardware was damaged.
I'll post some pics when I get home.
