Description

Hello guys!

I´m Michael, 25 years old and i recently build my "new" computer. For a long time i only used big- and midi tower cases, but the current case options in this segment are quite boring in my opinion and i started to hate how much space they take away from my desk. So I searched for something smaller. I´ve always loved the itx formfactor and my next pc had to be itx! On Black Friday i´ve got the Kolink Rocket Mini - Itx case for 99€ (112$) instead of the original 169€ (192$). I also purchased the Corsair SFX 450W power supply. I really like the sleek and minimalistic Desgin of this case. I took my Pentium G4500, the gigabyte b150 phoenix itx mainboard and the cryorig C7 cooler (these parts i bought used) out of my office pc and used it for my main pc. The rest of the components are from my previous gaming pc. Yes I know, it´s an odd configuration, but the only things i do on this pc now are coding and writing documents, not much gaming at the moment, so i don´t need this much power. I have a Ryzen 5 1600 laying around which I´m going to use later. I don´t have an AM4 Itx Mainboard yet, but I´m planning to pick one up in the coming months. So this build is not quite done. Maybe some great deals will come up after christmas :)

I apologize for my crappy english and wish everybody a great day!

Best regards Michael

Why the 4500? Feel like it will bottle neck the 1060 a bit

Why is it that ppl don't like to read.... It helps a lot as you can "maybe" find the answer to your question without asking.

Because it is 3.78 sentences too long for the average tween to read through. Pretty pretty pictures...

You could sell the cpu and buy a cheap board, if you could afford for your pc to be down for a day or two. No reason do be dicks you guys.

Not gonna lie world have spent more on the processor, less on the ram. Like the i3 8100 would've been a good choice for this build, and maybe 8 GB of RAM, but then again I don't know what you're using this for. Like I don't think you need to swap to AMD and have to get a whole new mobo, just seems like a waste.

He already owned the cpu and mobo. They came from his office pc.

That maybe the next updgrade for this system but:

I like those builds a lot! They are enough for the task you asking it to do.

Had such a build with a friend some weeks ago - satisfyied me more than building an overpowered system. (like mine) LOL

Can I ask why you've ziptied the top fan to the case? is it larger than the 92mm that was initially installed?
