Love the build. Just curious why the two different coloured NF-F12's on the GPU?

Builds like this are generally meant to be show pieces. 550 watts would be enough for this, but that's besides the point. Rally cars usually have high-powered modified engines, so it kind of makes sense to have an overkill PSU. ;)

Thanks! Appreciate the complements. :) Yep, it get's used almost every day! Use it primarily for my racing sim rig.

Thanks. I had looked into other solutions like pre-built NAS units, but when I considered the cost, it was just too much for my budget. I had a number of these parts lying around and that were well-suited for it, so that's the route I took. I also wanted to learn how to setup a NAS from the software side as well, hence my choice to go DIY.

Thanks, yeah, they don't make 'em like they used to. :) I have pretty slow internet where we live (12mbps down/2 up) and limited storage on my gaming system. So if I want to install a new game, or re-install a game I had previously uninstalled, it takes forever to download. It takes over 2 full days to download a 50GB game, for example. So by downloading and storing the games on this NAS, I can re-install them much faster in the future and not have to re-download. ;) It also makes it easier and faster to install the same games on another PC in the house.

Yep! That's another mod I have planned for the future. I'd like to get a pair of original SNES controllers that can be plugged into the front ports and wire them up to USB inside so they would be functional. :)

It probably would, but I'd be cautious of mounting heavier cards like this. The 1050Ti is still very light, but something bigger and heavier would probably require a bracket for additional support.

Also, I used the 1050Ti because I knew I could power it from the slot with the 160w Pico PSU without needing extra power connectors, keeping it all self-contained (mostly).

It was listed for sale on an online local classified platform (similar to kijiji or craigslist). They were only asking $15 because they thought it was dead. I had a hunch it might just be a bent pin, so I offered to pay the shipping ($10).

Not denying there are still some applications for optical drives today. I don't have solid evidence that most users don't need optical drives. I merely derived that statement based on common knowledge of modern computing and based on trends of media/data usage over the last decade. Most things have gone digital. Music, games, operating systems, etc. It's a logical statement to assume. Likewise, you too would have to provide solid evidence that "most users" still use/need optical drives. ;) Regardless, it's pretty clear why most custom-built systems don't have optical drives installed. They simply aren't needed by those users.

Not sure what you mean? There isn't really a top/bottom to this build. It can sit on any side except for the I/O side and open side. ;)

I haven't used an optical drive on a PC in over a decade. There's just no need for them anymore, for most users.

Thinking about getting an Azio Retro keyboard in the wood/metal finish. Only problem is they are like $220 USD. :/ Maybe one day...

There were more pictures I could have added. ;) I just know when other projects like this get posted, I find people don't take or post enough photos of the process, IMO. I may take some out when I fix the order. Just wanted to get them up for the time being. ;) Also, thanks.

Thanks. :) I have plans to address the cooling issue. I'll be posting up a new completed build log for that as it will require fairly extensive modifications to it, yet will still retain most of the original shell/appearance. Hopefully will be able to start working on that in the next few weeks.

Again, I was on a tight budget and already had the i3, mobo and ram on hand. That's far cheaper than a whole new AM4 mITX board + DDR4 ram and a Ryzen APU. The card doesn't need much support, it's only a small low profile card. ;)
