This build won't be nearly as involved as my last project, but it has some specific goals:
- Small, quiet, and powerful.
- Able to push my 5760x1080 setup.
- Easily carried home when I visit my parents.
- (Relatively) Low power draw.

With that in mind, I came up with this list:
- i5-4570S
- GA-Z87N-WIFI
- EVGA ACX mITX CPU Cooler
- G.SKILL 2x4GB DDR3 RipJaws 1600MHz CL9 1.5V
- EVGA GTX 770 4GB ACX
- EVGA Hadron Air
- Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB

And a couple to show how small this motherboard is.
The first lens is my 18-55, the second is my 75-300.

Okay, that's the smallest mobo I have ever seen! :shock:

mITX standard :)

Also, for those wondering, I opted for the WIFI board because of taking it to my parent's house and anywhere else.
It'll be wired in when I'm home, just like everything else.

While working on this build I have determined that I need smaller hands...

Not gonna lie. The appeal of these tiny powerhouses really make me want one. Very cool build!

Yeah, I love (H2O)3 but this little box is going to be pretty awesome.

That is one little system, can't wait to see what kind of number it will put out.

If I run P95 they should be prime numbers :rofl:

Kidding aside, it should be really stout.
