Finally replaced my desktop after my divorce. Decided to go with my second ITX build. This time I went all in with a budget of about $1200. I had some help with a family member working at Intel so I got discounts on the 7700k and storage.
I started by choosing the Phanteks case and went from there. Went back and forth on a few parts but ultimately decided on this final parts list. The case itself was easy enough to build in. I had some trouble hooking up CPU power after installing the cooler, but I'll know for the next time to install it after hooking up the power. Only other issue was the PSU clearance. A shorter one would have worked better but as I am not using HDDs I will remove the HDD cage in the near future.
I went with the cheapest 1070 at the time of purchasing the parts. I plan on upgrading to a 1080ti at some point in the future. I plan on doing some OC of both the CPU and GPU after that upgrade is made. I also need to get a Fan Hub as the Z270i Gaming only has one fan connector on-board. Currently there is no exhaust, just an intake. That being said, I haven't had any heating issues as of yet, even with room temps in 70s F.
Overall I am extremely happy with the way the build turned out and cannot wait to fine tune it.
