Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ITX Mini ITX

Out of sheer boredom I designed a low end computer (with higher quality parts) around the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ITX Case and thought since there is not a lot of new posts going on at this time of day I would give those of you who are online something to chat about.

As mentioned above, this build is not going after high performance, but rather style and quality.

I guess my main question on this build is about the motherboard. How does it compare in quality and features to other motherboards in its class?

More about phanteks enthoo evolv itx mini itx
  1. Gigabyte Wifi boards seems to be pretty solid from what I can see here.

    And why the 6320? the 6400 is just 10USD more.
  2. Interesting, if I had done the proper research I would have chose the 6400 but when I was designing this build I asked pcpartpicker to only show me the Skylake i3 CPU's.

    With that said the i5-6400 is a much better choice, especially for only $10 more.
  3. Good luck on the build! :P
