That one really fits the build. Thanks for the suggestion! The only problem is I couldn't find it in my country... I'm really into buying it now, so I think I'll order it from abroad. Thanks again!
Haven't measured it, but the build is very quiet. In idle you barely hear it, while on load it hums pleasantly. I assume it is mostly thanks to the case's sound dampening layers.
I'm glad you brought this up, because I can't say I do not agree with you. At the time of the purchase I wasn't so sure it was worth too, at least in terms of performance, but I embraced the possible loss.
Leveraging the motherboard's design, which is really appealing to me, in comparison to the availability of overclocking, I went for the first one. Mostly due to it being my first build, hence my lack of experience in the overclocking world. I am aware of the lack of scalability when it comes to SLI and I haven't been planing to do it.
On the other side, the price may be justified given the novelty in its aspect, the quality of the materials and the benefit of having multiple types of usb ports alongside one m.2 slot (which I can't wait to fill with a PCIe ssd). Although these arguments don't clarify on the existence of the H270 chipset, they are merely some particular pieces that strengthened my desire to build around the arctic motherboard.
Thanks for your comment!
Well, let's just say it's an alias of mine to alleviate the confusion. haha
Yep, you're right. Thanks for the correction. I knew there are 2 smaller than ATX versions of motherboards but I went for "mini" as it sounded naturally bigger than "micro".
Thanks for the suggestion. I will sure do, but as I did with the motherboard, I'll wait to stumble upon something that will go along aesthetically with the rest of the build.
At the time of the build the ryzen 8 and 7 where the only ones on pre-release and they didn't quite fit my pocket, so I went for this one. Thanks for the comment.
