Micro-ATX build??

Hey Guys! I'm going to LAN partys alot, and my main build with a Cooler master Storm trooper on 15kg is just to much to carry around, so i'd like a quiet but powerfull micro-atx system for under 1k $

Im looking for an Intel i5 3570k and i wish to overclock, so i would like to have a closed loop water cooler. im thinking about a 7870 gpu, but im not sure. Im living in Denmark, but i only need the name of the products and i'll find them. I would love to hear some suggestions on a micro-atx build.

  1. With this build you can overclock all you want and with this case you can easily transport it around to LAN parties.
  2. This is my stab at it, take a look. Might be something you like.

  15. "Im looking for an Intel i5 3570k and i wish to overclock, so i would like to have a closed loop water cooler." Im pretty sure you cant overclock a "P" good.
    I've already figured out my final build, so thanks for the help anyways.
  16. so why ask?
  17. and any air cooler can overclock as well as a water cooler.

    and why u need to overclock?
  18. I figured out my build looking at the recommends i got. I know air coolers are better, but if you read the post, as i guess you didnt since some of your questions already we're answered in the post, you would know im building in a very small form factor (mini-itx is my plans) so there would not be enough space for a big air cooler.
    Why would i overclock? Because messing around with computers is my hobby. I love learning new stuff and playing around with it, so why not follow my hobby? Anyways thanks for the answers.
  19. do u need any other help?

    do u need any other help?

    Nope, thanks anyways. I've made another topic in the overclocking section, and im not gonna overclock the system due to the heat it will generate, and for a mini-ITX case... Its not a good idea.

    Have a nice day / night :)
  21. u too. ;)
