I just noticed the order confirmation you posted last week. It looks like you changed up some parts last minute. You switched motherboards (from ATX to microATX, from 4 RAM slots to 2), you switched processors (from i5 to Pentium), and you switched power supply and case. Is there an SSD hidden in there?

I never did take a picture of the mini desktop I just got this summer. Maybe I'll take one soon to post here.

Those should be the parts I order unless you're thinking of something Kaz posted.  And no SSD yet, but I will be getting one.  Though, I wish I had gotten an ATX mobo instead

I meant in comparison to the parts you posted earlier in that thread, but I didn't realize how long it's been since then.

Why do you wish you had gotten an ATX board? Are you referring to the lack of RAM slots, or is there something else? Some microATX boards (including the one Kaz ended up choosing) have 4 slots.

the ram slots are unfortunate, but 8gb has been great so far. 

more the size.  my front fan wasn't able to reach the first fan header so


also it just looks tiny.  at least the brown pcb isn't too bad

also, it's nice nzxt tied down the preinstalled cabling, but the fact it used a zip tie meant i would have to cut it to rout the rear fan to the other fan header on the mobo lol awdood;

Still waiting on a few parts but I got most of them. Soon, David.

Here's my current main desktop:
[spoiler][/spoiler]

It's pretty hard to get a picture that really shows anything without taking some stuff out. Hidden in there is a miniITX motherboard, an SSD, and one HDD.

I also have another miniITX computer that I use for a server and media player. That one is similar, but in a different case (Node 304) and without a video card.

shoulda taken a pic of kaz's for him since his case was open :|
