    Re: M-ITX First Ever Build... Tempt Me It's Only £52.49 More Than A Mid Tower Build!

    Shame you missed the RTX 3080 Founder's Edition, they were going for £649 the other dayand work well in these cases, with a bottom to top airflow setup.

    Dont get the ASrock motherboard, they've had poor VRM for the 550 / 570 series, generally speaking. The Auros Pro is only £30 more, it's a much better option

    £50 over a £2k build is almost a rounding error

    The NR200P does appear to be a good starting case, its a bit bigger than a lot of other ITX cases but that can be a good thing. Scan have the Nr200P Max for £330 (preorder) comes with an AiO + PSU + glass/vented side panels.

    Re: M-ITX First Ever Build... Tempt Me It's Only £52.49 More Than A Mid Tower Build!

    Saw it buddy. my budget won't be available until nov-dec well nov if i get the moni in dec which is fine as i have a 4k 65" tv I can soldier on for a month with haha. or an AOC 1080p monitor at my desk.
    I'm too tied up in car parts atm until then unfortunately. but at least I'll have a sweet car and then a naughty new rig in time for xmas hey!

    What is the issue with the VRM? someone else just mentioned that? I NEED to have working WiFi/BT as I use both and not ethernet so the slower 2.5GBE isn't an issuse but the constantly faulty Auros wifi/bt from what I've read in reviews worries me immensely as I have consistently very bad luck and yours would be fine and mine wouldn't.

    Haha, good isn't it
    Yeah not a bad first choice for a virgin M-ITX guy! Yes I like the size of it to be fair!
    Yeah saw that but I wouldn't touch aio/water with a barge pole mate I have horrific luck. I can bet everyone elses will be fine and mine will leak. Just can't be dealing with that. I looked at getting some very expensive AIO's and even they fail/have issues/air lock blah blah I just can't be bothered.

    Right, you've twisted my arm I'll take a risk with the Auros but if that bleedin' wifi/bt cocks up like I see in the reviews from a year ago (hopefully that's been fixed with a firmware update) I'll personally be coming round to kick your d*ck in? Deal?

    I'd not bother with that GPU, the extra cost that the 12Gb 3080's are over the normal 10Gb versions would be money better spent elsewhere.
    5800x, do you need that much grunt, 5600x is still a good chip.
    CL18 RAM, see if you can get a CL16 kit.

    Other than that seems good to me.

    Re: M-ITX First Ever Build... Tempt Me It's Only £52.49 More Than A Mid Tower Build!

    It's so cheap though like 10GB cheap? scan has 10gb's for that or more and ocuk (for once) has the 12GB cheaper?
    5800x wise I want future proofing for more multicore games in the future so I can just simply change the psu/ram/gfx card in 3-5 years once I can't squeeze 1440p with dlss and mid settings out of it in years to come. Only chose that ram as the price is decent and they are nice and low profile for the hsf? what would you recommend mate?

    Thanks as usual for your input buddy!

    I posted a deal for C14 3200 kits, which provide similar performance to C16 3600 kits for £40, bought twice off the seller with issue, bargain price:

    £20 per stick, it's low profile and using Samsung B-die chips. It will clock higher if you wanted it too.

    nice one, and not being a dumbass but I can simply buy 2 and it'll be fine... no more 'matched pair' nonsense these days so I hear? right?

    Re: M-ITX First Ever Build... Tempt Me It's Only £52.49 More Than A Mid Tower Build!

    ok so after some help it looks like I'm going to try and get one of these bad boi's instead so I can get a matx psu and the original msi mortar wifi/bt mobo I wanted when I had a tower in mind. anddd I'll be able to use a dual fan Dark Rock Pro 4 like I was going to use on matx mid-tower setup and have a fair amount of room for a even bigger gpu in the future!

    The FE cards are coming through a bit more often now, and a 3080FE at £679 is a steal, IMHO..
    The CPU, I'm not knocking the 5800x, I have one, but they are toasty so be aware that cooling might generate more noise than you are expecting, unless you undervolt it and tweak fan profiles, the price performance isn't the best compared to the 5600x was my only real thought, there are also the 3D variants, when you come to actually buy the pricing might be more favourable.

    Re: M-ITX First Ever Build... Tempt Me It's Only £52.49 More Than A Mid Tower Build!

    yeah I'm gonna try undervolt it Trig.

    cptwhite_uk I think I'll take a pass on that case as it can only run a single fan 154-158mm cooler and only 1 120mm above if you use a matx psu which is a shame and the bottom wont allow 2 120mm fans with the matx mobo headers. i could mount twins on the side panel blowing into the hsf but hmm i dunno. I'm gonna see what else is about. sorry to waste everyones time lol. as for the cpu's I know man I just want it to last me like 5 years and only replace the ram/psu/gfx card after 3-5 years. as after 3 years I'll be heavily relying on mid settings with dlss at 1440p i'd imagine lol.

    screw it I'm gonna stick to what I wanted originally and just go mid tower meshify 2 compact mild tint window. comes with 3 fans to get me started and means I get to run the BeQuiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 that I wanted originally!

    The Gigabyte and MSI mini-ITX motherboards have the socket a bit higher up so can make air cooler placement a bit more finicky. Asus and ASRock(IIRC) have the sockets more centrally located which improves compatibility.
