First SFF Build--Missing Anything?

Hi All,

I really liked the idea of the SFF PC once I found out about it. I thought about jumping into the deep in of something super small, but wanted to go with a little/no hassle transitional build first.

I'm working on moving from an ATX Tower with an AMD FX8350 and RX580 into a SG13 with new mobo and cpu; going to keep the GPU the same for now. But I've gotten to the point where I'm about the buy the parts and wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything (do I have enough cooling?). I'm just looking to build a general purpose machine for light gaming (probably no AAA titles) maybe some VR iRacing--trying it anyways--with an upgrade path to a better processor and GPU down the road.

Any feedback is appreciated.

You're missing out on your storage. That MS30 is a SATA6 drive, not pcie v3.0 x4 (nVme) drive

See below for real-life performance comparison:

It's not a lot, but from someone who's got both, mildly noticeable.

And I think there's an error on PCPartpicker, Asrock B450 itx is listed as having two m.2 slots which is incorrect, only one. So make it count and get an nVme drive.

That 2TB hdd is a steal btw. Might wanna get it before the price changes.

Thanks for catching that. I'll swap out the M2 drive for an nVme drive.

Orders placed and will fill in if anything else is missing.
