Description

After months of waiting and research finally my HTPC is ready. It replaced the old Pentium mid case HTPC. I wanted Ryzen APU since i heard about them. I had some trouble with the case, the power supply wosent working, but everything is ok now. Also the AM4 itx is very expensive in Europe. About 115$ for the A320, and 150$ fot the B450. I had to take apart the Ryzen cooler because it was too tall. I saw in a video that was possible, and after i took off the upper part it fits perfect. The only thing i think of changeing is the ram witch i just have around. Im thinking about 16gb but i dont know if its a overkill since i only use it for 4k movies and YouTube. let me know what ram you think i should get.

it would be smarter to upgrade to a 16gb kit since the integrated graphics use the ram as well.

Yeah nice advice. Do you think i should get higher speed?

yeah it'll help get 3000 or 3200 if your MoBo supports it.

I would have gone for a b450 motherboard. just in case you wanted to upgrade. Also get another stick of ram it would help a lot with your integrated

nice build. i build an equivalent setup for my clients to use as workstations. terrific value. personally, i think the a320 is sufficient for the usage case scenario. the b and x series only enables more speed tweaking or pci-e slots, which are irrelevant on ITX builds. the stealth is the beefiest cooler you can get inside the case, so don't plan on too much overclocking. there are a couple of other aftermarket fans that fit as well but unnecessary IMO. definitely go 16gb.
