I decided to build this PC originally as a Platform for KODI. I realised pretty quickly that it could be handy for other uses, such as playing CSGO with a housemate and as media and work storage for my university days.
Performs brilliantly in that which was intended, its never used to play anything that intensive, so there's no noticeable performance loss that I can see!
Some may ask why I chose a £90 motherboard with the Pentium, this was simply to avoid any complications that I might have with the chipset. It was worth spending the extra cheese on, and the inbuilt Wi-Fi was a big plus.
The SSD I know has serious controversy surrounding it, but it as worked snappily and flawlessly to date!
The video card I picked up from a friend for free in exchange for a Z97-A motherboard I had from a previous build.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
Very cheap, very overclockable and performs perfectly in everything thrown at it.
Lives up to its name, totally inaudible.
Total oversight from me, due to the placement of the CPU socket on the motherboard, I had to mount the CPU cooler sideways so that it didn't interfere with the video card!
The only issue I had with the board was that one of the Wi-Fi antenna is loose, and flops around a bit, its not catastrophic and doesn't affect the Wi-Fi capabilities.... but its a little annoying.
Loud under load, but I never really stress the card too much. So it is perfect for this build.
Dead cheap for what you get. Dust filters, large 200mm fan, sleek looking case. Its large for an ITX build, but for the money, you can't get anything better.
I know there is controversy about this part also, but to date I can say it has worked perfectly.
