Most of the parts I used in this build are recycled from an older build. I only needed to purchase a 430W PSU from Best Buy for $30. This build is meant to be the ultimate home entertainment center for my bedroom. Completely hidden from sight, and I have all my music, pictures, movies, and a fresh install of Kodi. I use a wireless track pad/keyboard combo as my controller, works great. I have my router on top of my dresser so I used a wired connection for internet access, so I saved on buying a network adapter.
RAM: Definitely didn't need 16gb of ram, but I had it lying around from past build, so I just through it in.
Mounting/securing the mobo/GPU was the hardest part about the build. I first laid down the mobo and put the GPU in to see how my clearance is for opening and closing the drawer, I had to raise the mobo a little more than usual due to the heat from the back of the mobo, so I laid it exactly where I wanted and put dots where the mounting points needed to be. I also needed a way to secure the GPU so it wasn't rocking back in forth, so I used 2 L brackets to get a mounting spot, where normally you would have 2 screws on the back on a case (which I definitely don't have) After that I drilled wholes in the corresponding standoff spots. I then used a 1/2" plastic spacer and washer on the bottom of that. I tried placing the mobo in but all the spacers and washers started moving all over the place and I couldn't put it in. So I found some crazy glue to hold them in place while in the mobo. That worked perfectly! I then secured the mob even more using an additional washer and bolt on the bottom part of the drawer. I then, put in the GPU and screwed that in.
I had to cut out a whole in the back of the dresser to feed through my Ethernet cable, HDMI cord, and PSU power cord. Keeping the HDMI cord around the baseboard, I think I achieved maximum discretion. However if it was my own house(I rent an apartment currently), I would have hid everything behind the baseboard or in the walls. The heat isn't bad at all, CPU holds around 35c, GPU around 45c. Under load(watching movies for about 3 hours) CPU maxes at about 45c, and GPU around 60c.
If anyone has any questions please ask and I will try and answer best I can, this is my first time doing something like this, so don't be too harsh. Enjoy some picture! I wish I took more for when I was building it.
BTW The dresser to the left(darker one) 2nd drawer from the top is where the rig is.
