Seasonic Focus Plus 650FX PSU better for your casing as the PSU is shorter length.




rounding up the build and having some questions now..

build discussed so far:
CPU - AMD RYZEN 7 2700 8-Core 3.2 GHz ($375.49 - Newegg, $648 + MB from PC themes)
MB - MSI B450I GAMING PLUS AC Mini ITX ($187.43 - Newegg)
RAM - G.SKILL Sniper X Series 32GB DDR4 3000 288-PIN ($249.09 - Newegg | limited lifetime warranty)
Casing - Thermaltake Core V1 ($79 - PC Themes/Lazada)
PSU - Superflower Leadex II Gold 650W ($139 - Lazada | 5 years warranty)

1) From your suggested items, seems like some items like MB, CPU, RAM are cheaper in newegg, but no mention of warranty for MB and CPU.. I guess it might be harder to RMA as there's no local warranty but RAM is another story with limited lifetime warranty
2) What should I be concerned with other than warranty if I buy CPU + MB from newegg vs local shops?
3) How does Superflower fare against Seasonic in terms of performance if Superflower is the mercedes of PSU? In my previous build, my PSU of FSP 80+ Platinum 650W broke down at the last year (8 or 10 years of warranty). The warranty was useful for me to RMA and then sell it.
4) G.SKILL Sniper X Series 32GB DDR4 3000 - I looked at some of the performance benchmark of 3000 vs 3600, it looks like there is not much incentive to spend more money for the better model right?
5) Can I switch out the MB to an asus one when they are currently having a lucky draw?
6) Having this build ready, the last question will be whether to wait for the next gen Ryzen of 7nm coming out this year right?

According to this reddit take on gigabyte launch, seems like may 27 might be the date for launch of zen 2. I will wait then since it will take me another one more month before the announcement at AMD

In any ways, thanks for all your help. if i can't wait within these few weeks, then i will get this build!

Also, based on this reddit rumour on that MSI won't support Ryzen 3000 on *any* B350/X370 boards, its a surprise that you guys propose b450i which might support zen 2.

Can consider SilverStone SG13 with front panel with faux aluminum finish for a smaller ITX casing which max gpu length is 266mm and height is 129mm.

Need low cpu cooler like Noctua NH-L9a-AM4.

SilverStone 500W SX500-LG comes with SFX to ATX bracket, so can save headroom between cpu cooler and PSU.

I think the Cougar QBX is an excellent case and it can support a variety of cooler heights depending on the parts you choose.

You can also use non-SFX PSU, but max 140mm length. Although I went with the SF600 Plat so I had future upgrade paths.

For reference, I am using a Noctua C12P SE14 as my CPU cooler, and I still managed to stick a slim 120mm fan just directly on top as an intake.

CPU and RAM from Newegg. Motherboard must get local for warranty purpose. Chassis local for saving shipping cost & risk.
