Hi everyone, I'm sorry if a similar thread had been posted. I'm planning for an ITX build with ultra-portable like T1 or Sliger 560. I'll most likely bring it with me to work and back home at night. I have many questions but the following are my main concern right now. Side notes that I'm not in a hurry, I can wait for a month or 2 (Black Friday deals for cheaper parts) so I can wait for T1 if needed to.

Shared parts:

- CPU: thinking about either Ryzen 7 3700X/3800X or i5 10600K or i7 9700k (mainly gaming at 1080 with ultra settings, future proofing is preferred to utilize RTX 3080's features)
- X570 Strix or Z390/Z490 Unify
- GPU: RTX 3080 (still hasn't decided which one yet, waiting for more reviews)
- SFx PSU 750w
- RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 3200MHz CL16

Sliger 560:

- CPU cooler: Alpenfohn Black Ridge (replace the stock with Noctua 92mm fan)
- 2 x 120mm Noctua fans at the bottom for the exhaust to create negative pressure (mentioned by Optimum Tech)

FormD T1: There are 3 routes


Route 1: Flipped
- CPU cooler: Alpenfohn Black Ridge (replace the stock with Noctua 92mm fan)
- 2 x 120mm Noctua fans on top as exhaust

Route 2: Flipped
- CPU cooler: Corsair M22/H55
- 1 x 120mm Noctua fan

Route 3: Flipped
- I might go custom loop (replicate Optimum Tech's)


Concerns that need suggestions:


- How will Sliger 560 (Air cool only) compare to T1 (Air cool only)?
- Which CPU should I get if gaming is all I do and possibly future photo/video editing?

Have you taken a B550 motherboard instead of an X570 into consideration? From the looks of em, they give basically the same features at the higher end as the X570 counter-parts, but the chipset does not require active cooling.

Thank for the suggestion, I'll definitely take that into consideration

If your main usage is gaming and at 1080p resolution, 3080 might be an overkill. 3080 is better suited to stretch its legs at 4K. For 1080/2K gaming, maybe you should consider 3070 as well, which is due to come out next month. I am waiting for one myself. Hopefully 3070's availability will not be as low as 3080's.
And, for the money saved from going from 3080 to 3070, maybe you can consider 32GB total RAM as video/photo could benefit from a larger amount of memory.
