So after some thought i decided on building a secondary system. I wanted something small but with enough power and headroom to upgrade if i want to use it for more than movies, browsing the web, and skype/teamspeak.
As it stands the specs are
i5-4440, b85 gaming 3 mobo, 8gb 1600 ram, 60gb ssd, 500gb secondary HDD, wifi/bluetooth combo, enough room for a full size video card using a flexible cable but the card would stick out of the rear an inch and at last a 550 watts full psu. I'm currently using the internal graphics of the mobo but if it starts lacking i'll go dedicated.
Overall sizes are. 4 1/8 " wide, 9 3/16 high, 13.25 long.
Pics of the build
Drawing it up in tinkercad.
The entire case was made from a single sheet of 24x18" Acrylic.
Cutting and gluing the case.
Of course i didnt want a huge plug on the PSU so i soldered the wires directly
HDD and SSD in.
Mobo came in. Sooo tiny.
Putting in the mounts.
And mounted and running.
Installing windows. Forgot my USB DVD drive at work sooo SATA it is.
Running like a champ.
Thats a 12" scale
And fully complete.
Thanks for reading.
