    Hi,

    Happy easter holidays btw.

    I am looking to build a new gaming rig and I want to use mini ITX.

    Current list:
    Silverstone RVZ01*
    450 Watt Silverstone Strider ST45SF-G
    ASUS Z87I-PRO (C2)
    Intel® Core™ i7-4770K, CPU
    SilverStone Nitrogon NT06-PRO
    Gainward Phantom 780 3GB
    G.Skill DIMM 16 GB DDR3-2133
    250 LiteOn SSD
    1TB Seagate 5400RMP

    My only worry is the power supply, it may be on the limit, I am guessing OC is out of the question.

    Also when are the next gen of motherboards available ?

    What you guys think ?

    Hmm, can't you change it for some other PSU that costs the same, but offers more power, at the cost of the gold certificate and special form factor (bronze should do)?

    It should handle the configuration without a problem at stock speeds, though, so unless you're going to OC, you'll be fine.

    Well, the PSU is not ATX, but SFX.

    Ok, my bad I thought that the case was an RV01 and now I see that it's RVZ01.

    It's going to be fine, it can push over 400W through the 12V rail, which is more than enough for stock speed. OC-ing the GPU, except very mildly, would probably stretch the PSU near its limits rather quickly (power consumption grows roughly linearly with frequency, but also with voltage).
