I'm looking to build a Mini-ITX SFF for speed in compiling code for work. However, I want it to be portable like a laptop but with better performance and upgrade options. I use an i3-2xxx CPU on the laptop at work w/ 8 GB and it is so dam slow compiling my code. Graphics isn't a big deal but would like to have it maximized. Money isn't a big deal but would like to keep it $1200 or less. Here are the requirements in order of importance: 1) CPU/mobo - Bought the Intel 3570K ($170) for and Asrock Z77E-ITX mobo ($105) - preferably quadcore. Intel or AMD, I don't care, whichever is cheapest for the mobo/CPU but gives the best performance. Bonus points for lower power. 2) RAM - bought the Crucial Ballistix Sport Low Profiles ($80), the highest amount possible since my code IDE is a hog. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148663 The new Crucial Ballistix Sport seems to be a good fit since they're low Profiles. 2X8GB = 16GB 3) SFF Case - bought the Antec ($70) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129080 Antec ISK 300-150, size: 12.90" x 8.70" x 3.80", 150W PSU Not sure if those PSUs can be replaced, and if they even make PSUs in larger sizes than that? A quadcore CPU may need more juice than that but just guessing. 4) Hard Drive - bought Intel SSD 240GB 520 Series ($178) 5) Optical DVD drive - bought the Slim ($27) - I'd like to have one to read CDs to load software/play music but optional. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827151261 seems to be the standard for slims. 6) Sound - Bonus points for an aftermarket option but not at the top of the list although I sometimes listen to music while working. 7) GPU - not very important. Bonus points if there is a decent upgradeable gaming option, but overall optional. Misc. - Cooling Upgrades - Bought 2 Arctic Cooling PWM F8 80mm ($13) to use as side fans, Noctua NH-L9i ($49) low profile HSF, and Scythe Kama PWM 92mm ($10) to use on top of the Noctua. Edit - Updated with components I'm going with so far. Total so far is $702 shipped and with additional aftermarket fans and cables, it will be under $700 and still have the option to add a Graphics card if desired. This seems to be way better than any laptop in that's it's almost the same in portability but gives me way more power and upgrade options. Any thoughts or recommendations so far?
