Description

I used to have a pc hooked up to a monitor and a console hooked up to the tv. I found that I'd much rather sit back on the couch with a controller in my hand then behind a desk with a mouse and keyboard. But, I did like the graphics the pc could produce. That's why I rebuild my pc into this console sized machine. So I can sit back and enjoy great graphics and the freedom of a pc on a big screen with a controller.

The pc was getting a bit hot so I moved it to the back of the tv, using the vertical stand included with the case. The temps are now great and it's not too loud. I used a lot of zip ties to tidy the case up a bit. Because of the space restriction this was a challenge but I think it worked out pretty well.

not bad, though a mini itx mobo? Not to mention the limited storage.

you don't know too much about the case I take it?

razmalia 1 point 4 days ago

I don't, im just asking why he used itx instead of atx, its just my preference.

Because I wanted a small form factor case. It doesn't fit anything else besides itx.

you should set steam launch big picture mode whenever the PC boots up so you wont have to use your mouse and keyboard to launch your games.

Thanks for the tip. I've done that now.

I've also installed controller companion so I can use my controller as a mouse and keyboard when necessary.

Kinda a poor choice of CPU imo, especially when the 6500 is only a few dollars more.

Mitchief89 submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 days ago

I bought the CPU from a friend so it was a great deal ;)

Also, at the time I bought the parts, the 6500 was much more expensive than the 6400 (in the Netherlands).
