Description

Previous iteration: Top Ramen PC Build

Same as my last build, use this for primarily 1080p gaming at 144+ fps. Transplanted my old build into an ITX form factor because I like the small form factor appeal. Re-used CPU, GPU, PSU, RAM, and storage. Went back to an air cooler from liquid cooling purely for aesthetic reasons haha. This Cryorig cooler keeps temps honestly just as low as my old AIO and it looks really good too. ITX motherboard is good, but ONLY ONE FAN HEADER is a headache. Phanteks makes an exceptionally good ITX tower that isn't bank breaking and looks really nice as well.

Following the pattern, named after my delicious snack I enjoyed right after I finished the transplant.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Primarily bought this cooler because of the aesthetics of it. I really like low profile air coolers and this one looks fantastic. Keeps temps very low under load and is very quiet at that. Great cooler.

Motherboard

Looking back I wish I went with the ASUS ROG Strix board now, but that can always be upgraded in the future. Really like the layout of this board, the 24 pin and SATA ports are in very good spots. I've seen boards with them in the most random places it seems. I REALLY wish there was more than one system fan header though. But that is to be expected on ITX mobos. Overall good little board.

Case

I love this case. ITX but still pretty beefy honestly. Room enough for a full size PSU and GPU and a 240 radiator if you wanted. Love this look of the Enthoo Evolv lineup and its even better shrunk down haha.
