Description

Just realized I have no pics of it actually completed I'll fix that today when I get home

Overview

Well, this was kind of impromptu. A few weeks ago I was looking for cheap parts to try and do a custom loop on and many people offered great deals and such, but one person made me an offer I couldn't refuse, Jipster69. He said he'd give me both a processor and a mobo with windows 7 pro for 75 bucks. I hopped on the deal so hard. He was patient with my money situation(I payed like 4 days later than I said I would) and even through in a built not bought sticker. Jip really took care of me. But as I was looking into water cooling parts I thought, "Why the **** am I watercooling a g4400?" So, I decided to do another thing I haven't done, an sff build.(as sff as mATX can be lol)

Case selection and overview

So, looking at cases, I didn't know what to go with. But, I remember browsing sff cases like a year ago and seeing a pretty sexy In Win case. So I set out to find it and finally did with the BL631.300TBL(mouthful I know). I ordered it, then it got stuck in the blizzard in New England. Last part I got too ;-;

RAM

I needed at least 4 gb of 2133 so why not crucial. I can upgrade later bruh

Processor

A powerhouse processor for effectively 37.50... yes please

Mobo

It's a motherboard, for 37.50, why tf not?

OS

Lol it actually has ten on it, I decided to try something, use the Win7 key on Win 10. IT WORKED

Storage

Cheap 120gb ssd for 40 bucks, why not?

Uses

I am gonna install raw Arch linux on this when I get it back. By that I mean I am putting it in my mom's room for now as a media center pc. Gonna put netflix and pureflix on it. And a few emulators so she can play old snes games and such. I almost forgot how strong the g4400 is lol.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great processor and the only reason I am giving it a 4 star is because the g4560 is the same price basically for better performance. :/ that's all

Storage

Haven't play with it much to see it's speeds but they seem pretty superb. I really like it and it matches my case's color ;P

Case

Okay, this gets a 4 star for a very good reason(in some peoples eyes). It came with absolutely no documentation. Yeah yeah, online user manual and such, but even manufacturers(idek if I spelled that right) have a little quick start guide to explain some specialties of the case. Idk call me picky. Also the little black cover it came with didn't fit the stock intel cooler. So idk lol

Operating System

It was basically a free key for me so I'm happy
