    I'm OK with everything but this one! IF you have an activated windows 10 account all you need is to download the Windows 10 ISO direct from Microsoft and use the digital license. IF you don't have one go on ahead and install the OS and buy DIRECT from Microsoft. There has been a lot of fraud with hackers and those keys you get from retailers like Amazon.

    The OS can be had any number of places... Or not needed it all.

    I'm going to repeat my comment! Get the OS key directly from Microsoft! It's been better of late, but there is a history of fraud by hackers using key generators, etc with all the retail packages!. You can download the actual IOS directly from Microsoft!

    Thyme, I actually built a rig at the beginning of the year with the idea in mind that I might want to take it on the road with me if local ended up not working out. Ended up going with the Sugo 15 case-am extremely happy with it and have no qualms about bringing it along in the truck with me if I go back out. It's not pretty, but it's very solid. It's small (smaller than the microwave I had in the truck), but big enough to handle most gpus and even the largest of air coolers. I've got a rog strix 3070 in it right now with room to spare. It's super easy to build in and can handle either an air cooler, or a 240 aio, or even multiple 120 aios. Air flow is great, even on the hottest day and pushing it hard, temps stayed surprisingly low (although that may be due to noctua.) The three things I think that would make this case a good option for the truck are its small size, it has really good filters (inside still looks brand new), and the motherboard sits on the bottom of the case and thus gravity is not pulling everything down from the side of the case-may be a wrong idea, but I feel it would handle bumps better with this mobo configuration.

    Good 'ol Silverstone... (SG15) Not a bad looking case, IF you take the time and do the build right. Wire management can be a PITA in cases like that.

    BUT... If the OP goes with something other than a mini ITX mobo, that case will not work. But change out the mobo to fit and that would be a decent case...

    Might also have to change out the 1TB M.2 SSD for a SATA 6GB since "most" ITX mobo's have only one M.2 slot.

    IMG_0913.JPEG IMG_0921.JPEG IMG_0923.JPEG IMG_0924.JPEG I didn't think the cable management was too bad.

    The z490 I gaming motherboard (which I have here) has two M.2 slots. It also has enough headers to run the five fans that are in this case, still has a pump header for an aio, and has four sata ports if you want to go that route. Great little mobo for this case.

    Nice build... I see you went with an SFX PSU and the ugly, but very efficient Noctua fans.

    I saw a comment about MBs with only 1 M.2 port! I wanted to address this. The below may look like gibberish but believe me there is VERY important information present as it relates to this MB. It is what I am using on my primary desktop. Look carefully at where the two M.2 ports are directly tied into. My main m.2 is tied directly into my Ryzen 4650G and the 2nd is hooked into the PCIe! Both are ports in the MB.
    [​IMG]

    Here is the reason I bring this up. Right now I have nothing in that 2nd M.2 port. For heat reasons, I am using a PCIe card! I have run speed tests using that 2nd MB port and with the M.2 in the PCIe card. No real difference. Basically what I am trying to say is that the 2nd M.2 port on most MBs is PCIe anyway! If you purchase a good high-quality PCIe M.2 card you can still use a 2nd one and have no real performance hit. However, I MUST advise caution when it comes to M.2s in general. Right now my Samsung Magician software is telling me mine is running at 48 degrees C. I am doing some video rendering and it's hitting my drive C hard. 48 C is OVER 100 degrees F. You MUST have good airflow with these devices. I have 3 fans on my desktop.
