Hi guys, need advice for building a SFF rig while reusing parts that I already have (which I will be bringing for use in Japan).

I am looking for a chassis which is around the size of the CM Elite 110/130 (or similar 'cube' form factor), and am thinking of using this with a 4K monitor.

The following are the parts I have:

CPU - 5820K
RAM - Kingston Technology HyperX FURY Black 32 GB Kit
Mobo - MSI X99A Gaming Pro Carbon
GPU - ZOTAC GTX 1070
Fan - Noctua NH-D14
Storage - Silicon Power SDD 1GB/WD RED 3TB
PSU - HX850i

Please advise which parts I could reuse and which would not fit into a chassis of that size.

Also, do I need to change the CPU/mobo and if so, any recommendations for these?

Finally, are PSU bought locally compatible with Japanese voltage, or do I have to get a new PSU in Japan?

Since u are only using it for gaming, do u intend to OC? Otherwise u could get a b250/h270 board with a non k 7500

GPU u could head over to carousell, lots of sellers selling their used/brand new 1070 over there, some shops even post their items over there with special prices, on average can find a 1070 over there at around 500+

WD black, u could aim for the blue or other Brands too, black a little unnecessary in my opinion, 1TB cost hovers around $50 << if u say that black is faster hence u want to go for it, might as well TOP on your SSD, over there the speed incremental is more noticeable

Cpu cooler u could get the 212x at around 49-59 depending on your seller
