Build

AleePC

by Alee14

Description

I use this machine for gaming, programming and other things. This machine works well compared to my other computer which had an Intel Celeron CPU (and that computer was a downgrade). So far this machine only has one problem which is not enough memory.

In the future, I am planning to add and upgrade parts to my computer.

what games do you play ? also i would have gotten a 2x4gb kit because dual channel is better. you should invest in a 750 ti or a 1050 ti they have similar performance. If you can post pics of the inside of your pc with the cover on.

9/10 build

Which in most situations is better, but when you only have 2 dimm slots and don't want to throw out all your RAM when you upgrade getting a single stick is better.

Are you saying the 750 ti and the 1050 ti have similar performance? Because that is wrong. The 750ti sits between the gt 1030 and gtx 1050. And is not much better than the Vega 8. Whereas the 1050ti is much better than any if thise. But none of those would be the brst option for upgrading. The RX 570 would be the best upgrade if the OP is looking in the price range of the 1050ti.

I play Minecraft, Software Inc, Sims and lots more that I don't really know :P. But yeah, I will take a picture of my inside build once I come back to my home and also I am planning to add a video card in the future :)

I used the same case for my sisters setup! You get nice looking blue lit power button and a side window. Case also gives you two fans preinstalled, and 4front usb ports (2xUSB 2.0 and 2x USB 3.0) so my favorite little case! I also have some notes on the parts: -Ryzen 3 2200G has a much better onboard gpu than a pentium or i3 8100 so you should already have some room for gaming. However, even a GTX 1050 or better card will show a huge difference, except if you only play games launched before 2006. i3 8100 and this ryzen are priced and perform almost the same, but finding a cheaper mobo may make the real price difference. Finding an RX 560 or GTX 1050 under 100 dollars is easy now. You could also pair this cpu with a GTX 1060 or RX 570 or 580 with no to little bottleneck. -Single stick ram, even if you plant to upgrade soon is not the way to go. Sometimes even the same model of ram may differ for the future batches or hard to find. So I always but a pair, and sell it when I decide to upgrade. Used ram doesn't lose much value, and always easy to resell if you lower the price a little. I did the mistake of buying one on my first build and when I decided to upgrade there was no pair in the market. For the performance, it shows its difference in memory intensive usage up to double the performance, and some improvement in games (some show no difference and some do a lot, really depends on the game)., -Last thing is how the cpu cooler is positioned. I would have positioned the fan so it would blow from bottom to top. As is, it fights the air flow of the case so may up the temps a bit. In most cases (including this one), air intake is done by the bottom front fan and exhaust is the top back fan. This case has the power supply on top, so it is also used as exhaust so helps removing hot air from the case. So if the cpu fan is positioned the opposite way then it will have the same air flow with the rest of the fans. It is going to be a quite easy fix, you just have to remove the fan and attach from the bottom side, so no need to remove the heatsink completely and reapply again. Anyway, I hope this long text doesn't offend you and is actually helpful. Enjoy your new little computing and gaming box!

How is the FBM-X1? I am thinking about getting it.

Also, how does the power button light up? Is it the light from the case fan?

Alee14 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I would say that FBM-X1 is a good case for a cheap build and I used one of the wire cable from the case to make the power button light up
