    Cool Please help with 'for fun' Intel Pentium 20th Anniversary G3258 good value build!

    Hi

    After seeing reviews of the Pentium 20th Anniversary G3258, I am tempted to build a cheap but good mini game rig. This will not be the primary gaming rig, but a very good computer for the wife etc.

    I am looking for a small factor build, cheap, but at same time good value for the money. And of course it will be OCed, to about 4,5 ghz (stable OC). Plan on using a Corsair Hydro solution (maybe H60?)

    For practical reasons I will be buying from this store here in Norway http://www.komplett.no and I am strongly considering this package as a base:
    https://www.komplett.no/oppgradering...-editon/818518

    I know MSI have made special bioses for this CPU on that (and 2 other) boards, so it should be a safe choice. Do not know about that ram.

    So, any advice on which parts to get? Remember, good value for the money, low budget, and small form factor/case build.
    Old Comp:
    Antec 182
    Asus Maximus Formula (Bios 1302)
    Q6600 G0 @3.2GHz @ 1.3V (can easily go higher but NB/SB heat is a problem sadly...)
    Ultra 120-Extreme w/Nexus 12cm realsilent fan
    Corsair Dominator TWIN2X PC8500 4GB DDR2 @ stock/400MHz strap, 1:1 with cpu
    XFX Radeon 6950
    1 x WD Raptor X 150GB
    1 x WD Caviar SE 16 750GB
    Corsair HX620

    Corsair H60 is a good choice for a not so pricey LQ solution, here You can see temps @5Ghz on delidded i5-4570k:

    For some hi end aircoolers You have to pay more and the H60 gives You a lot of space in Your case.
    If nothing works nomore......:

    Done some resource, so far I got this:
    CPU+RAM+MOBO https://www.komplett.no/oppgradering...-editon/818518
    CPU cooler https://www.komplett.no/corsair-h60-...u-kjler/769223
    SSD disk https://www.komplett.no/samsung-ssd-...-25-oem/765948
    PSU https://www.komplett.no/corsair-cx-750m-750w-psu/773377 (guess this is more then enough?)
    Keyboard https://www.komplett.no/logitech-gam...d-g510s/775744 (yes this is not cheap, but plan on using Aida64 monitoring)
    Mouse https://www.komplett.no/logitech-fps...e-g400s/773415 (once again not cheap, but very good model, have the priors in same model line)
    DVD drive https://www.komplett.no/asus-dvd-wri...-24f1st/798971
    Windows 8.1 https://www.komplett.no/microsoft-windows-81/798697

    GPU AMD 7970 which I can use from other computer, which will get a new GPU

    Case - not sure, was hoping for a small one, but with ATX mobo and normal GPU that looks to be a slim chance.

    Comments?..

    More or less complete list:
    CPU: Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition G3258
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z97N-GAMING 5, Socket-1150 mini-ITX, Z97
    RAM: HyperX Fury DDR3 1866MHz 8GB Black 2x4GB 1866MHz DDR3 CL10
    CPU cooler: Corsair H60 Hydro
    SSD: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB
    Case: Corsair Obsidian 250D Mini-ITX
    PSU: Corsair CX 750M, 750W PSU ATX 12V V2.3, 80 Plus Bronze, Modular
    Keyboard: Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510s Pan Nordic layout
    Mouse: Logitech FPS Gaming Mouse G400s
    DVD: ASUS DVD Writer, DRW-24F1ST SATA
    OS: Microsoft Windows 8.1, full, DVD

    GFX: AMD 7970, which I will swap from other computer


    Goal:
    Small form factor PC which can run @4,5GHz OC rock solid stable.


    Questions:
    See any problem with this MOBO or RAM to reach that goal?
    How much watt do I really need for this PC? Is 750 way overkill? 7970 is slightly OC, and the CPU will be OC @4,5GHz.
    Any problems with OCing Win8?

    Hope to get some advice on this build...

    From this page http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages..._radeon,7.html it looks like about 700 watt PSU is more then enough...
