Today i build a small system for my dad, well usually more a KodiBox.
I was never a big fan of the “4k TV Box” things you can buy for small money over the internet.
After convincing my dad to go for a computer base, i grabbed some spare parts i had left over – again? yeah…i still have a lot xD
Hardware on hand:
MSI Z97I Gaming AC Intel Z97 mITX
2x 2GB OCZ Platinum Edition 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
300W Cooler Master G550M PSU
Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced
Intel Stock cooler
Maxtor HDD 250GB SATA
Intel® Core™ i3-4170
On arrival of the CPU, i started to gentle smash ( 😛 ) the parts into the small case. In the middle of the way, i knew why i switched from mITX to mATX.
It is always a pain to assemble such small system, even with all the benefits…but hey, thats just my person...
