    My last Mini-ITX Build

    Mini ITX was fun and all, but I miss not having space to run wires and the sometimes issue of not having a long enough wire instead of not having a large enough case. So after this I am reluctant to say I am moving back to Mid Towers.

    But anyway here is what I just built.

    Sg07 Silverstone Case (With 600w Silverstone PSU)
    ASRock Z68M-ITX/HT LGA 1155 Intel Z68 MB
    XFX Radeon HD 7950 Core Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5
    G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
    Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W
    Two 19" 4:3 Monitors + One 25" 16:9 Monitor
    Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110
    Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse G400
    1TB OS Hard Drive + 500 GB VM/Fraps HD + Corsair Nova Series 2 2.5" 30GB Caching SSD

    I've found that if I don't give myself a budget I will end up trying to buy everything.
    So my budget was $1200 and I already had two of the Monitors, Keyboard, Mouse, Case, and the Two Mechanical HDD's.
    It is mostly used for VMWare Workstation and of course games.

    It looks gorgeous, I've seen several Mini-ITX builds these days (one of them in the neweggs last videos) and it seems so fun to build one (cable management apart) :P.

    Chapeau! :P

    Edit: what size are those monitors? :P
    And is the third one standing 1/3 off the desk edge?

    Thanks. I do enjoy making them as my computer sits on my desk and doesn't take up much room.
    But the down fall is the HD 7950 idles at 55-60C in my hot room (because of the orientation of my house my room gets two full windows of sun almost all afternoon. So my room temp is always a bit toasty). But at least it doesn't break 75c when running at full load for a while.

    The two on the edges are both 19" 4:3 and the middle is a 25" 16:9.

    And no it isn't, it just looks that way but there is a dark wooden dresser that is up against the white table they are on.
