Description

So this is my second build for a dentist who needs this PC for their second building they owned. The first building was for the braces and dealing with crooked teeth and the second building was the dentist. By the way, I worked part time at the first building.

My highlights:

  • I realised that the hard drive was 8 years old since the employee over there gave it to me. After I built this, it still works with Windows 10 and everything runs perfectly. So there is no need to buy another hard drive but just in case if it’s full or faulty.

  • Before I bought this case, looking up the smallest cases was a hard to find. They want a small case for their desk in the dentist room. After days of searching, I found this case. It’s small and perfect size for them. I’ve never experienced with building in a small case so this is my first HTPC build.

  • Cable management took so long since I don’t have cable ties. I spend most of the time installing the hard drive and tucking the cables near the case fan. The 24-Pin was pretty tight and I have to push the cable hard so it makes it easy to put the side panel back in. Instead of cable ties, I used the small wires to manage some cables.

Overall, it’s a fun experience to build in a small form factor. It was pretty challenging with the cable management and installing the HDD. At least everything works perfectly and very happy with how I went in building my second PC for the dentist.

Part Reviews

CPU

Excellent cpu for the money, performance and gaming depends on your gpu. Also great for budget office builds too.

Motherboard

Great mobo for all of the needs. Wifi is good, overclocking options are great , simple UEFI and BIOS. Highly recommend this mobo.

Memory

This ram stick is fast enough for budget builds like this. No complaints for this.

Looks pree good. A Ryzen 2200G in that case would make the perfect HTPC.

I'm currently using that same CPU. I've tested it out with games such as GTA V, ARMA 3, and a few others and it pulls it weight. The big upside is that it, of course, runs very cool. A stock fan does just fine for mine. I'm going back to a hard drive myself, simply because they're more reliable long-term than SSD's. This a solid thrift build, good job on it.

Also I just saw the tape. Did you use that for cable management? lol

No, lol. I used two small wires to manage the cables until my dad bought me cable ties a few hours ago. I heard that the cpu is great for budget builds and gaming on a budget. I haven't tested the cpu yet for rendering or the benchmarks for it. Thanks for the positive feedback btw!
