    HTPC gaming build

    It's been a while since I last build a pc, and since my current PC is way to big to take to my student appartment I want to build something smaller, preferably compact enough to fit in a backbag, so it's easy to move. So far I found only one case that fits my needs, namely the Fractal Design Node 202. I build the pc around it as follows; - i5 6500 - Asus B150I pro gaming (cheapest mini ITX board I found with wifi) - Corsair SF450 450w SFX PSU (seems to be the quietest in this formfactor) - Kingston HyperX 8gbb DDR4-2400 (1 module) - Scythe Big Shuriken 2 rev. B - Samsung 850 evo 500gb SSD All these parts should fit in the case, and without making to much noise. For the gpu I will use my gtx760, until the gtx1070 sells without the founders edition fee. I have read complaints about the gpu geting too hot, and there is room for 2 120mm fans above the fans of the gpu. Would it be more efficient to buy a 3th party gpu heatsink, two slots high in combination with the 2 120mm fans? That way I buy the cheapest 1070, and still totaling less then what custom boards would cost. Maybe just adding the 120mm fans to a proprietary solution yields even better results, I dont know. The Pc will be used with a 1080p monitor, I might switch to 1444p later, but my main concern is the noise and heat such a tightly packed powerhouse would generate. What dou guys think? This is an exciting project, please tell me if I overlooked something
