This is my first micro atx build. I wanted a new gaming machine and I wanted smaller than my previous machine. It is quiet at idle and the case has good air flow despite its small size. The next item on my list is a 27 inch 1440p monitor with g-sync.
Case: Small and easy to work in. Great airflow. Tried top fan as exhuast but got cooler temps as intake. CPU Cooler: Giant and overkill but quiet. Had to rotate 90 degrees to avoid heat-sink from hitting graphics card. CPU: Seems good for most games but regretting not getting an i7 for hyper threading. Storage: I reused the hdd and both sata ssds from a previous build. The Samsung 950 pro is crazy fast and can boot from off to desktop in 5.5 seconds. Graphics: EVGA 1080 runs every game i throw at on ultra settings at 1080p. Looking to pair a nice 1440p monitor with this card soon. PSU: Love eco mode which keeps the fan off on light loads.
