So I am about to start building my first Mini ITX desktop and I want to make sure everything I have will be compatible.
Case: Fractal Design Node 202
Power Supply: FSP Group Mini ITX / Micro ATX 80 Plus Bronze Certification 400W Power Supply
Motherboard: MSI Intel H81 LGA 1150 DDR3 USB 3.1 Mini ITX Motherboard (H81I)
Probably some thermal paste...
Parts I'm recycling from my current machine
CPU: Intel Core i5-2400
CPU Fan: Some fan that I forgot the name of but works well ^^U
RAM: Patriot 8GB DDR3 1333
Storage: Intel 500 series (I think) 180GB SSD, Crucial 240GB SSD
GPU: AMD Sapphire 7900 series (even dxdiag isn't specific enough...)
...and then all of my external storage solutions, optical drives, and peripherals
Parts I'm not planning on recycling:
SATA-linked multi-card reader
The only thing I'm worried about is my old processor and the new power supply, the former because the Amazon product description for the new motherboard says that the board takes 4th generation intel processors whereas I think the 2400 is a 3rd gen...hopefully that's not an issue. I'm a little worried about the power supply because it's not the best brand...and it's only 400 watts....Hopefully that's enough to power the whole system- as I'm making some power cuts by using SSDs instead of HDDs.
What do you all think? Will this work?
