    Question M-Itx Skylake build

    Hey guys. I'm going to build my self a new ITX gaming system in upcoming weeks. The computer needs to be fast and very quiet. I have copyed the form from a pinned post to give you a look of what I'm thinking

    Budget: Between 200.000 and 300.000 icelandic krónur. About 1500-2000 US dollars
    Main uses of intended build: Playing games and surfing the web
    Parts required: Motherboard, CPU, RAM, PSU, CPU cooler, case, SSD
    Previous build information (list details of parts): The system I'm currently running is
    CPU: i7 4770
    Motherboard: Asus Z87k
    GPU: Asus GTX980 OC
    RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengance DDR3
    SSD: 500GB Samsung 850SSD
    HDD: 4TB Seagate NAS
    PSU: Some 650W FSP
    Case: Fractal Design R5
    CPU cooler: Cooler Master 412S
    Monitor resolution: 1920x1080 at the moment
    Storage requirements: 1TB SSD for OS and Programs. 4TB HDD for data
    Will you be overclocking: Yes, I would like to hit 4,5GHz stable on the new CPU

    The parts list I have put together is as follows
    CPU: i7 6700k
    Motherboard: Asus Maximus Impact VIII
    GPU: Asus GTX980 OC
    RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengance LPX DDR4
    SSD: 2x500GB Samsung 850SSD in Raid0
    HDD: 4TB Seagate NAS
    PSU: Corsair RM650i (The case supports max length of 160mm PSU's
    Case: Fractal Design Nano S
    CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X41 (A 240 or 280 radiator will not fit in the case with my GPU)
    Sata cables: Silverstone CP11B
    Other: NZXT IU01 internal USB hub

    I would really like to get your comments on this build of mine, what you would change and why.
    Best regards

    fans whit high air flow ( not RPM but MMH2O ) they are low rpm and high air push.
    whit a GPU and a PSU like that you need it.
    the PSU is low wattage and the fan on it WILL crank up and make some noise.
    the GPU will probably dumt some of the air inside the case ( exept if its the normal cooler thats standard from nvidia ).

    ssd's use one for OS and the other for games, this so you dont waste enny space and monney.
    and maby get a m.2 drive down the road ( faster boot up time ).

    Thank you for the reply. I will probably be replacing all the case fans for high air flow ones. The PSU will not be the one I listed but a Corsair AX760i instead. The motherboard does not have an M.2 slot so a M.2 drive is not an option. Thank you for good points though.
