Description

A couple of months ago I build a tiny PC for Dota 2 and Media Box. Everything was great except the box was getting too hot while gaming for long periods (3+ hours). I solved the issue by placing a 140mm fan on front.

My original plan was to have dual boot Hackintosh but I wasn't comfortable putting M.2 in an already hot case. I loved InWin A1 White (black doesn't look good with that base in my opinion) and luckily my colleague had a GTX 980 that he was planning to get rid of.

So I bought the case, Deepcool 3 rgb fans set and M.2 and build using all previous components.

My next step would be installing Mac OSX and hunt for CPU sales to upgrade from 2400G to 2700/2700X.

Part Reviews

Case

Worst PSU ever. Can't believe they put such a cheap PSU in an expensive case. It's loud as hell! and moded to add wireless charging and cover. So replacing isn't an option unless I want to get rid of wireless charging and ruin the looks. Won't recommend.

Nice build! Did you have to update the BIOS, or did it support Raven Ridge out of the box?

It worked out of the box. I ordered from newegg which states that "Compatible with Ryzen 2000 series".

Only when I tried to overclock it above 2400mhz. At 2400mhz it works fine.

You're proof of the upgradability of the Ryzen platform. 2400G tiny build to 2700X (soon) + GPU in great airflow SFF case? Perfection. Plus, getting that video card for free is amazing.

Question: What headphones have you got there?
