Maybe add a second line of cable combs so they stay neat all the way to the back. I love that PSU!
I have seen several builds lately that seem like the AIO hoses are too short. Looks odd having them stretched out like that. Nice build though, I like the white theme.

There is no reason for this not to fit. Check to see if you IO shield is really fully installed. They can be a challenge. Next, make sure you back IO ports are going all the way through, sometime you have to fiddle with the little tabs in the IO shield.

great progression of photos showing the build and path for cable management, which is really nice for a mini.
I will never understand why the ssd always has to screwed down the wrong way. Why don't the make mounting holes and graphics on both sides??? Anyway, after just building in a mini Metis case, I can appreciate what a nice job you have done. That 3470 will not disappoint you either.

great job on getting the used parts for a great price. Impressed that you were able to stuff an ATX mobo in that case and still keep it clean!
If you do upgrade the GPU go for any 480/1060 that takes a 6 PIN. No need to waste time with the 1050 ti since you have a PSU that can handle a 6 PIN.

I like the idea of using the new Pentium for a budget build. Haters will be haters. I also agree with the RX 480. With rebate they can be found under $150. Best deal around for a mid range GPU even compared to used GTX 970s.
I found the case makes a big difference with GPU sag but your solution works too. Sometimes the power cables drag the GPU down so I try to avoid that if needed.
Great choice on the SSD. It is nearly as fast as the EVO and a few bucks less($20).
I think 16GB RAM is becoming the new standard. It really help resale value too because we all upgrade :) I mean it's only a few bucks more and sometimes it's hard to find a matching stick months later when you decide you want it.
When the time comes that the G4560 is no longer good enough for the OP, he can sell for close to what he paid and upgrade. I think history will be kind to this little chip. I had great success with the g4400 and that did not have hyper threading.

Very clean looking for a budget build, well done. I think you will find the 770 will perform very nice on 1080p especially paired with the nice i5.

I know building new is the easiest way to go, but if budget is an issue and you have any skills at finding stuff on eBay or craigslist, finding an i5/mobo/8GB ram for under $200 is pretty easy.
That gives you room for a small SSD which is soooooo nice for WoW, a new PSU, nice case and new GPU. I would suggest the 1050 ti.

I have the 250 and 500 GB of the SK Hynix and they are not very good. I got them because I read some great reviews as well as rock bottom prices. CrystalMark puts them much lower than the EVO and not even as good as my ADATA SP500 standard buy.
Go with the EVO or ADATA's new 3d nand version.

Love the budget build. The 470 over the 1050 ti was an excellent choice. The 6100 is a great cpu as well. Fantastic build!

go to NVidia and download an older version of the driver. I used one from July. It is an issue on this new driver.

I also had an issue with a new (used) build not installing my gtx 1060. I downloaded an old driver from July (random pick) and they loaded just fine. I think there may be an issue with the latest driver and newest gen cards. I also was perfectly successful installing a 760 and 770 with the newest drivers.

I have to give a +1 for this. I recently built up a used 8350/7870 system. The 1050 ti is a tad better than the 7870 (and sips power!). I ran a test on Witcher 3 before selling and could not believe how smooth it was on high setting in the city. The FPS was low, around 35 but it was very smooth, which tells me the frames drops were not happening. Even i5's stutter sometimes in this area of the game. The 8350/8320 really does have a place in the gaming world on the budget end of things.
Really nice use of cash here.

yes, that is the one. It's free. Try Firestrike and Time Spy. Log into the results page to keep track of your results. I bought the key so I have more features. I think you can save unlimited runs. I have like 150 saved.

That video stinks. There is no proof of his settings or his FPS. Make sure windows has done all its million updates and all the drivers are finished updating. For a few hours on a new build, windows really sucks up the resources.
After everything is stabilized, run 3DMark benchmark like Firestrike or Timespy the compare your scores to similar set ups.

should be fine. download a temp monitoring program like HWMonitor or MSI afterburner and monitor temps. Play any game and you should see the fans spin as the temp rises.

Never had this before but every time it shut down I was running CPU-Z. I uninstalled it and have not been able to re create the shut downs. Weird eh? Been gaming, benchmarking and stress testing as well as fiddling with all the switches, no issues.
