    That's a cool looking little rig.

    How are the temps? Do you have room for a better CPU cooler?

    And also, You should try your hand at sleeving up those cables, as it makes a world of difference!

    Looks good, pretty hard to cram so much into little cases. But shit, how bad is the layout on that Asrock board? Any reason why you didnt go for the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe?

    Nice job :thumbup:

    I've been planning an ITX build for ages but still have not gotten round to pulling the trigger.
    Currently looking at the Silverstone SG09 which is around ITX sized but takes a M-ATX mobo.

    Love the punching above it's weight ITX builds :)

    Will post the temp when i get home. Cooler wise, im still looking. All of the low profile cooler right now will not fit cause of my gpu. The cpu area is so close to the pci-e. i have to take my gpu out if i want a better cooler. This set up is just temporary. Im gonna switch to water cooling :D

    Very clean setup. Everything looks like it seems to have slotted in nicely.

    Looks sick seems like something i would do but i went for a big case D:. I have the silverstone 750w psu but i admit i hate the cables. I rekon you should sleeve em then drop some led's and the system will be beast like hell.
