Hi,
I'm looking for a mini PC configuration easy to move with excellent performance. I need a solution can allow me to work on audio integration software like FMOD/Wwise with Unreal engine and software for music production, editing and mixing like Ableton Live and Pro Tools.
I guess I would like to move around my pc to work in a different environment and to do that I'm thinking to something like a shark zone C 10 or fractal define S nano (even if it's bigger than the shark zone).
My budget is 1700/2000 euros and these are the components I would like to put in:

Processor (CPU)
Intel® Core™ i7 Eight Core Processor i7-9700 (3.0GHz) 12MB Cache
Motherboard
ASUS® ROG STRIX Z390-I GAMING: Mini-ITX, USB 3.1, SATA 6GBs
Memory (RAM)
16GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 3200MHz (2 x 8GB)
Graphics Card
8GB NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2060 SUPER - HDMI, DP - VR Ready!
1st Storage Drive
1TB Samsung 860 QVO 2.5" SSD, SATA 6Gb/s (upto 550MB/sR | 520MB/sW)
Power Supply
CORSAIR 450W VS SERIES™ VS-450 POWER SUPPLY
Processor Cooling
Noctua NH-C14S Ultra Quiet Performance CPU Cooler

Thanks!

What country? As that can affect the price / tax etc.

Is it just the PC you need, or any monitor/peripherals too?

You should go for a TXm PSU as it's modular, which will mean fewer cables in the small case. Also it's better quality and more efficient.

You might consider 32gb RAM for your uses?

Look at the M.2 SSDs as they are faster and some are not much more expensive.

Consider the AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs as they offer additional threads/cores.

e.g.

FRACTAL DEFINE S NANO GAMING CASE

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Eight Core CPU (3.6GHz-4.4GHz/36MB CACHE/AM4)

Thanks! I like this set-up but could not be a problem to install a liquid cooling system?
I sometimes need to move it and I worry about having that system.
Instead what about the shark zone c10? Are these components compatible with?

The 2 cheapest cases I would ideally stay away from as they are quite low end. I actually have the Cooler Master Elite 120 and it's okay for a £350 PC, but not so much for a more expensive one with high end hardware.

If you don't want a liquid cooler you could stick to the standard AMD cooler. I don't think the Noctua cooler is much better tbh. I don't think moving the PC with an AIO liquid cooler should be an issue though as it's all screwed in place and it's a sealed unit.

No PC wants to be subjected to violent force of course! :)
