If it's smaller and does the same thing as something larger, then the smaller form-factor always win XD

Smaller is better for multiple reasons. If you are building a HTPC, then smaller means less real estate taken up on the shelves and stands around the screen. It also means less weight to transport when going to LAN parties.

Because when you have a back disability, you don't want a system that weighs 50 pounds and takes up a lot of space.

Smaller is king for space under the tv and the challenge of building in a small form factor case. That and my eight year old, Core 2 Quad Shuttle is up for retirement and my wife would not be happy if I went out to buy parts for a new SFF HTPC.

Smaller is better because you have more room in your case for other things.

Smaller is better for ability to put a system where room is at a premium and allows you to take it to LAN parties much easier.

I have been using an Asus z87 gryphon in a Corsair 240 and I really like the setup.

Smaller means:

less wasted space (extra volume in the case, desk space)
easier to transport
lighter weight
theoretically less cooling required (fewer components = less heat generated)

I am not sure if this is still going but.....
Smaller is better because I can get good performance and still make it fit behind my TV.

This is now closed. Sorry, I have had some personal issues to deal with and this fully fell off my radar.
