Great system, no problem at all, it will overclock but i always disrecommend it on Mini's. But hey if you know what you are doing and monitor the tempratures well then theres no problem ofc. Although i do monitor Mini's for a longer period of time for tempratures and fan speed.
Looks great! The only thing I'd'd change is to bump the storage up to a Seagate 3TB drive and a 120GB SSD. That's about all I'd change! Although, if you wait, Samsung are bringing out mSATA ssd's (it's rumoured) for around $10 more than the usual ssds, and that motherboard has an mSATA port underneath the PCB, which i find awesome, and is the reason I'll'll probably go for this mobo when i build my LAN machine
It'll overclock as much as you'd expect from an ITX board, but with ample cooling and some fine tuning you should be able to squeeze out a decent amount of performance.
It'll overclock pretty well. The airflow, especially with a 200/230mm fan in the front is pretty excellent, and both the Asrock and Asus boards are good performers.
I have no idea why a gaming build would need a 3Tb Hdd, though a 120Gb SSD wouldnt be a terrible investment.
The main downside I would say is that the Prodigy isnt as small or portable as I'd like it to be. It's wider than most full towers and the handles are a bit wobbly and awkward for carrying. Not really a 'do not buy', I did, but be aware of its limitations.

Absolutely, very comfortably. The HCG620M would give you plenty of headroom, modular cables and a great OEM - its basically a rebranded Seasonic M12II 620 which is usually a lot more expensive.
The True Power Classic is also Seasonic made and 80Plus Gold which is nice but no modular cables.
