Description

To start this off I've ALWAYS been fascinated by small form factor desktops. Ever since I laid eyes upon the Cooler Master Elite 130, I knew I had to build something close to that criteria. Fast forward five years and it Finally. Happened. Thanks to the Inwin BQ656 w/150W PSU, I was able to make my computer smaller than the average Xbox One/PS4. Whenever I show it off to those who still think that desktop PC's are nothing more than huge clunky towers, they are dumbstruck at the small size. Ofcourse at first they don't believe it beholds any true power, but once I turn it on they soon realize what they're dealing with. The AMD 2400G is the first to be mentioned, paired up with 16GB of blazing fast 3200mhz DDR4 RAM; the combo performs marvelously in games! Second up is the Samsung 970 EVO booting Windows and other programs within a blink of an eye. The only thing people say after that is WOW, or they are speechless because they know their Walmart prebuilt is of no match to this caliber. The build doesn't have any RGB lighting because a TRUE build doesn't require it. Please feel free to upvote/downvote, comment telling me that you love it or hate it, because either way, I shall remain headstrong about how awesome my little dude is.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

I bought this motherboard awhile back and everything about it was & still is perfect, except for adjusting the VRAM part for my 2400G APU. This motherboard is an absolute pain on adjusting VRAM, so I've decided to write a review explaining how to successfully do it.

Go to your BIOS Click on Advanced Click on AMD CBS Click on NBIO Options Click on GFX Configuration

Integrated Graphics Controller: Forces

UMA Mode: UMA_SPECIFIED

UMA Version: Auto

UMA Frame Buffer Size: 2G

NB Azalia: Auto

Start Windows Open Task Manager Click on More Details Click on Performance Click on GPU 0 Dedicated GPU Memory should be ***/2.0 GB

It worked for me using the latest BIOS. Hope this helps!

Case

This case was a gift from God sent down from Heaven itself! I love the size of this thing, no joke it's the smallest case with a built in PSU I've ever seen. Building in it took time, but the results are most definitely worth it. I didn't want to spend $100 on the bigger brother variant of this case (Chopin) so this did the trick for me.

Not all builds need RGB, but those spaghet cables are killing me.
