Description

This is my first PC I built since the 1990's. I am an avid cyclist, and Zwift got me back into PC building. Zwift connects to the power meter on my bicycle. It allows me to train and ride with other cyclists around the world. My goal is to create a small form factor PC. The processor is modest but Zwift is all about GPU. The machines runs well and it is connected to a TCL 40" TV. Stock cooler for the CPU, but I do need a big box fan to cool myself off.

I am very happy with this build and learned a lot. Now I am planning a new build for Lightroom.

Cool. I never try Zwift before. 198W, 28mph, and -0.4% grade? You must be a really light fellow? Or does the software take account of drafting?

The software does take drafting into the calculation. In that photo, I was in a large group,not as much power needed to stay in the peloton. :)

Nice build! I'm thinking of doing something similar howeverI've heard of issues when installing windows 10 with a G3258. Did you encounter anything or was it a straight forward process?

I did had a problem installing Windows 10 at first. Once I updated the UEFI on the motherboard, it went smoothly.
