Hey guys I've been wanting to dive into the SFF arena for a while. Couldnt figure out what case I wanted to go with but I decided on the Dan A4 v4.1. I have some parts that I will be bringing over from my previous system.

Re-used parts:
GFX Card: Gigabyte 1080 T.I. Gaming OC (3 fan card)
Storage: Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB M2. NVME Drive

New parts already purchased:
Case: Dan Case A4 v4.1
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
AIO: Asetek 645LT

Rest of Parts being considering:
Mobo: Asus Rog Strix B460-I Mini ITX
Ram: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB DDR4-3600 CAS 16 (i know the timings arent the best on this but im kinda liking the RGB)
PSU: Corsair SF 600 W 80+ Gold Modular
Fans: I know the Noctua 92MM fans are recommended. There are two different ones that I have seen. I would prefer all black. Please advice on one for the AIO and one for the case if possible.
Cables: I need someone to help me find PSU cables that will help with airflow. Everything I keep finding is out of stock.

Heres everything on PC Part Picker. Let me know what you guys think. Building in this case is making me nervous already and i need your guys experience thanks!

pretty good list. My few advices/suggestions :
- Corsair SF600 => get the platinum version, for few dollars more, you will have a better power delivery (considering you have a 1080ti, you need it), and icing on the cake, sleeved cables easier to manage. Also, don't know if it's also like that on the gold version, but my platinum has the fan stoped most of the time, only running under load like gaming.
- MB B450 => do you have an older CPU ? Because you need to update the bios to support ryzen 3xxx. And if you have bit more $ to spend, just get the aorus X570i, best ITX MB for a ryzen 3xxx. Also gives you 2x M.2, which is a great feature to save space in a SFF case
