    The CM looks like it has more potential. Not sure how the the temps will be though.. looks cramped inside for the MB area.

    That is the entire point of this exercise: to fit as much as possible in as small as possible :3

    Its going to set me back by about £500 though, so I am still considering against it.

    Possible innards:
    Gigabyte Z77 ITX Wifi
    i3 3220
    180GB 330 SSD
    7750 low profile+single slot

    No.. I know.. just.. damn.. so cramped!

    I think those are some good components low power to keep heat down but enough juice for games. Low profile? Are you thinking the TT? CM210 should let you fit a more beefy full height GPU.

    This was my only succesful attempt with ITX:

    Yeah, just like that. or 7850 with the CM120.

    I will need to be a master cabler or hire a contortionist to fit it in :D

    One thing I learnt from TPU is to buy the best I can afford, just because it has better resale value down the line. :laugh:

    Well I'm very much looking forward to the build if you go ahead with it. That level of contortions and packing is what makes an ITX build the best to look at. Normally the Optical/HDD cages are where you can stuff extra cables.

    Ah. Why not an AMD APU like the A4? Replaced my parent's old Pentium4 with one of those and they're over the moon at being able to watch 1080p streams without stuttering.

    Its funny how mad people can get when you tell them the store is closed. people have more then 5hrs to do their shopping but only arrive at closing time when all but one till is shut and security arent letting people in.

    Most of them were hipsters however - I was working in camden today. Its like they think their fucking gods gift to humanity or something and we should keep the store open another 1hr just so they can take their time and do their shopping.

    Also... hipster kids have no respect for other people whatsoever, they are nothing but spoilt little brats spending their parents cash.

    I caught a group of them stealing some chocolates/sweets - they ran off and tried to hide it and when me and my boss stopped them at the exit - they were saying they paid for it using something called a 'pound note'

    WELL - Jokes on them i said, the chocolates they stole doesnt amount to £5 or even £10 so if they put a note in the machine would have given them change but there was no change given neither did they pick any change up nor did they have a receipt to prove that they purchased the goods.

    Hipster kids --- their parents are probably rich bastards who give their kids an education that's most likely leagues above of where i was schooled, but even the best education in the world would be wasted if you are a total fuckwit.

    1) I think this post is legal anyway!

    2) Try Hexus, AVForums, Gumtree (local) and at a push HotUKDeals for new or perhaps 2nd hand.

    Good luck. Personally I feel I could live without mine these days but I'm not selling!

    I am an internationalist. I wise man buried in Hyde Park once said "workers have no country".
    I am of US birth and am an avowed communist my whole adult life. I fought the bosses on the job my whole life and in university when the Vietnam War raged in the late 60's. I raised money and attended rallies in NY for the Kent miners during that last great coal strike in England. We even paid to bring one miner over to speak across the country to build international solidarity.
    I would be honored if you would tolerate my membership here. By the way my wife is of Guyanese heritage, and of course in her youth was a British subject.
