"Puddin" is the culmination of some smaller builds that I used to figure out exactly what I wanted in a low price MITX gaming rig/Media Server.

I knew I wanted an AMD rig and my love of comic books needed to be represented somehow. The black and red theme instantly brought me to Harley Quinn, hence, puddin'.


Athlon x4 880k - Best CPU I can get for an FM2+ MITX, happy as hell with the performance.

Corsair H55 - Quiet, cheap, looks good and keeps her cold. Ill take it.

GA-F2A88XN-WIFI - Good Board, great features, less then great BIOS but gets the job done.

PNY XLR8 Gaming SSD gives great read/right speeds and didnt break the bank. The 1TB WD drive is for backups and the 4TB is media storage.

Modded Corsair Dominator Platinum 16gb -Great Ram that got some TLC to match my theme. Custom paint job and Red inserts from Main Frame Customs.

ASUS ROG STRIX RX 480 8gb - I wanted the best RX 480, and I got it. Nothing but good things with this card, and I love the aesthetics.

Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV MITX - Absolutely love this case. Nice and clean, great look, awesome space and the cable management/fan controller/PSU shroud are all top notch for a MITX case. Easy to build in, great look, has everything I want. And the Radiator mounting system is one of the smartest things I've seen in a case this size.

I replaced the stock fans with Corsair red LED AF120mm fans, and then added 2 more. These are controlled by the Phanteks fan controller.

This machine runs Overwatch, DOOM and Street Fighter V like a dream. When not gaming it's a PLEX server/File Server/ Encoding Box. Couldn't be happier, the Price/Performance is amazing, it looks great and I can play whatever I want. Love it.

you can put the h55 in a push pull config. i got the h55 too. they should give you 8 long screws because there are 8 holes in the radiator too. i used 2 long screws in front fan and 2 in back fan. it looks like you could easily use one of your case fans with a y splitter for pwm. that ram is cool.
