    The other two cases are met with the same problem as Inwin, unknown PSU quality.

    The Antec ISK is the smallest (volume) but its optical drive is 5.25" slim, somewhat expensive and troublesome to accomodate (you need a SATA to SATA slimline adapter).

    Thanks for the help, the Antec one did look somewhat appealing but if it's that much trouble it's not worth it.

    Final build:
    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811108196
    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157357
    APU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819113282
    SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D=3938566&SID=
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231550
    Optical Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135204

    Any final thoughts?
    Perhaps a better SSD? (Cheaper, more reliable, more storage or better value)
    Better APU? (Better value without a large increase in price)
    Will everything fit in the case? Will I need a bracket for the SSD?
    Any compatibility issues?

    If there aren't any problems I'll be placing the order tonight.

    Thanks to everyone that posted for all your help!

    Yes, the motherboard is kind of overkill as it has 7 sata slots, you'll never use all of them. Better to go with MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 and save a few bucks.
