Hi, this is my first mini itx pc build. I set myself a budget of 2000€.
First of all the components: I fall in love with this case - Ncase M1 v5. Full aluminum and so small! Perfect for my desk. I planned a watercooled system, but i due to not so flexible tubes of the water cooling radiator, I decided to go back to an air-cooled system. In fact, I am much happier with it. There is no pressure on my gpu and the sound is not noticed. I waited for the i7-8700k and the ROG Strix 370-I for mini ITX. I also used the sexy G.Skill Trident Z RGB, i admit just for the RGB :) It´s much better then I thought - usual plan was Corsair Dominators. U may ask me why I build in just a GTX1070? First of all, it was a budget build and the second thing is, its absolutely enough for my "ultimate game setup". I saved around 400€ and I could use them to upgrade other parts.
Performace: absolutely gorgeous - multiple tabs, a virtual machine (linux), some docker containers, netflix & a game like Overwatch, etc. are running without a noticeable performance leak!
Desk: Ikea karlby + 2x alexa units
Displays: Dell U3415W 86,5 cm (34 Zoll) Display (3440 x 1440, LED, HDMI, Display Port, 5ms) Dell 210-ADSO Ultrasharp U2715H 68,58 cm (27 Zoll) Wide Quad HD IPS Monitor
Future project: 1) cable management for the displays and the desk 2) new keyboard and a new mouse 3) overclocking
So partpickers, tell me what you think? :)
