For those of you who have seen my Ressurection mod, this is the itx version of it, without the painting and cutting...for now. Maybe I'll scratch Sam back's later.
Anyway, as the title says, the main goal of this build is to have a steambox that will be use in the living room. The reason I changed for the Itx is to get a build that would be more compact and less heavy to move around if needed.
So what's next? Well, a cpu cooler, modding and maybe, maybe, a r7 250. I'll see if it worth dual-graphic later on.
The case was bought used for 65$ Can. While the A10 and the ram come from the old build. There's also a HDD not listed.
Nice Apu. For my steam box, it's working great. Maybe I'll try to overcloak later, but everything is working for now.
Nice form factor. Really compact thank to the ITX. The wifi seem to be fine since I used to have connection problem with any small D-link wireless card. Fast look at the BIOS and everything look good.
Fast... What else?
Hummmm bootload. Perfect size for steamos or for a netbook. If you want to have a lot of game, or sotfware, don't hesitate to go a little bit bigger.
Nice looking, but really small space for the cable (keep in mind that's a Itx). Had some problem to connect the Usb3 to the mobo since there's not a lot of space. Also, the cable from the psu are make a 90 ° really fast since the OD tray and ssd hdd tray are blocking it a bit. Also the psu is use to pull hot air outside. No idea if it's a good or bad idea since making it take the air outside might restrict a bit the cable connection and it would still receive the heat from the cpu.
