I know! This video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDCMMf-_ASE) by linustechtips shows just how little cable management actually affects cooling performance.

Yeah, I tried my best haha. They also tend to look way more chaotic in pictures, not really sure why that happens. Thanks for checking out my build!

Nope, not really. Gaming-wise, you're looking at a 5fps or so decrease at most compared to a i5-6500.

I appreciate your input, and I definitely could have fit a 1060 and a i5 6500 in my budget if I spent less on other components, but I wanted to build my rig now (there's always something newer/better/cheaper on the horizon), and I also wanted quality parts. Since I don't play a ton of super demanding AAA titles, I figured I would spend a little more to get the right features and quality.

Also, mITX components tend to be a little more expensive than ATX ones, and so you have to be willing to spend more on them IMHO.

Gotta keep it at a nice 75%!

Yep! I just went with an SFX one because it gives much more clearance in the front and for the cpu cooler.

The front fan is pulling air in, as it's usually a rule of thumb to have "positive air pressure" (more fans taking in air than out). The only reason for this as far as I can tell is to mitigate dust buildup.

In terms of temps, yes they are a little hotter because I went for a pretty quiet fan in the front, but nothing that causes throttling by any means.
