Description

This is my first post to PcPartPicker...

I started this build around two months ago when I found a broken NES for $10. There are a lot of guides online for these type of builds, which is good because I'm not very creative. All I am waiting for now is a new low profile gpu from team red or green so I can use this system as my main rig. My future plans include: Touching up the paint here and there (or just sanding it all back down and painting it the original colors) and adding four usb ports where the original controller ports were.

Hope you like the build!

UPDATE: Posted two more pictures: One of the inside and one with the temporary back plate (I am going to make a new one that fits better and is red!)

hey, that's pretty good. Oh and don't repaint it the original colors, this color scheme sets it apart.

Stuff like this deserves a feature. Creative, but not necessarily powerful. Really love it! +1

OK!, this is, this is awesome!! It hits all the right spots including nostalgia, the NES that could, please share more pics. If I could +9999 I would.

Do not change the colors, it looks great, like a rare limited edition NES that forgot to give way to new gen consoles, and just got OP in the way :D

A few questions: How is it doing with cooling?, do you OC? FPS? how did you fit the PSU? why an HDD of 256gb? just get a 1Tb or a 512 SSD for space.

Thanks! The cooling is good, I haven't OCed yet, I get 45 fps in ARK on Medium at 1080p/ 60fps in Skyrim on high/ 60 fps Fallout 4 on Low to Medium, I updated a pic of the PSU (it BARELY fits), and i'm stuck with the HDD until my next paycheck, but that SSD is definitely my next upgrade.

Well most of the settings are medium, but I put all the shadows on low and it seems to boost fps quite a bit and it is easier to see in the dark :)

It's a cool build, but how loud does it get?

  • 41 months ago

Not very loud at all. I can hear a silent blowing when it is about 3 feet from my face.

hi, is your boot drive the ssd, i can't install windows 8 or 10 it freezes and crashes everytime. I am using same mobo but my boot drive is Samsung 850 evo m.2, do you have special config in bios? thanks!

  • 41 months ago

Yes my SSD is the boot drive, but all I did was load Windows 10 installer on an old USB drive and installed it. I didn't change any settings in the bios or have any special config. Sorry

This is amazing. I was about to say I would have gone with an A10-7890k until I saw you some how crammed a GPU in there. I'm not even going to ask how, really good job mate. I would give +5 if I could.

Look up "Front Bezel Wire Kit" on Amazon. I used a kit like that for the led lights and the front buttons.

I don't think he wants to overclock, it's an SFF case. Anything more than the CPU he's got and the NES is melted. And the 240W PSU would blow up.

If you want to overclock, get the i5-6600K
