Hi guys, this mini pc is my new adquicision, I think the video card was the best choice for its price, the power supply is a gamemax 500 w 80 plus, temperatures usually get worse since the cabinet is really small and really There is not a single cubic centimeter to envelope to add more hardware, so for what time is it ... hope you like it

Part Reviews


This processor is the most economical of the i5 so that is why i chose to go for the i3 6100 but 4 logical processors felt correct


This was also one of the cheaper motherboards that I found, it was very difficult to find in my city motherboards mini itx, it is basic but sufficient for the subsequent hardware that you buy


Very good price and I liked its lights, I wanted something subtle, no strips of led loose, something about the hardware, buy your partner when you want more ram, and for the characteristics (ddr4 to 2400), it is worth over other brands . Note: in theory you can not control led lights, they just blink and that's it

Video Card

This video card is very powerful and cost me less than 200 dollars, the gtx950 is more expensive and not worth it, this board is almost equal to a gtx 760, 256 bus, spectacular performance and me first card amd, love it .


This is the only reason I started this pc, I came from putting together a mini itx bitfenix prodigy sistemqa that was too big, then an evron hadron that was also a bit heavy and with the power supply very out of the market and difficult to replace . So this cabinet is a cheap, light option, weighing only 6 kgs all the pc including the components, and accepting power supplies atx normal size. I recommend this cabinet

My friend is still using his R9 270X up to today, has no problem with it ;-)

True, buy new and is very attractive and powerful, only 145 dollars when in most places costs 200. It has the same features as a gtx 760, even better than a 950 in certain aspects. Probe call of duty black ops III and runs it perfect at 1080p. regards

Used 2x270x in build(not on PCPartPicker), and only upgraded due to 1440p and Vram constraints. Definitely a great card(or 2)!

You probably could have gotten more performance out of your money, but the 270X won't do too bad for you.

Also, I've never heard of Gamemax. Googling them gives the Amazon link for the PSU you bought and literally nothing else. I'd be EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY cautious that that thing doesn't end up frying your components or burning your house down. As in, get a new PSU as soon as possible.

The same I think, but the seller thinks that they are good, in the short term it will change it for another, just so that the components burn, there has to be a very strong electric discharge, not counting that the psu bring protection so that it does not spoil the Rest of the pc, thanks for the comment greetings
