Description

I decided to build a HTPC since I have a decent PC for Streaming/Gaming. This is my first Ryzen CPU as well. The Build was tedious as the Shift case is cramped. I had to go back to it a few times to keep from getting stressed.

If you use a Corsair SF450, don't use the cables that came with it. They are hard to bend. I bought a replacement set. I'll be taking the RX460 out and replacing with a 1070TI. I just wanted to finish this up today.

Part Reviews

Case

Case looks good,but is very compact even for ITX. Will make you work for it. Wish there was a little more in the way of Cable management tie downs. Overall, I love the tempered glass look

Decided against the LL140s. Used HD120 and SP120s instead. Saving the 140s for my other computer.

Didn't run it long after I set up Windows and finally got the Wifi working. CPU was 21.8 but I'll run it some tomorrow and update

21.8 is a great idol temp.

I would suggest spending more on the GPU and less on the CPU.

See above where I put that I just stuck that card in cause I had it lying around and wanted to finish it up. 1070TI will be fine for a HTPC .

If you don't mind me asking. Where did you go to find replacement wiring for your SF450W?

thanks so much! I'm inspired by your build to get these.
