Damn, I wish I could build PCs at 14! Dude, the only thing that's gay is you playing games at MEDIUM settings with this beastly PC gaming setup! :O You should be cranking everything to High graphics settings at least! You can probably get away with Ultra/Highest settings as well without skipping a beat.

Damn but this is an awesome build. Can I ask how large and portable this build is? I thought from the pics it was a mini-ITX build but then I see from our parts list it's actually a micro-ATX build. Does the ordinance case have handles on it?

Great work, it's been a while since I've seen someone choose a rectangular style HTPC case. And you're right, the included screws with the CM ML120 AIO are an absolute pain and just do not work. You're better off using standard exterior PC case screws.

The only problem requiring an intervention I see here is you pairing a 3600X with a measly RX 590 instead of the 5700T or RTX 2080 it deserves! :P Other than that, great job and nice to see you giving your hand me downs to the rest of the fam! :)

Great build, esky. I'm thinking of doing a new build in an InWin A1 myself so this is great to see. Question for you: what issues did you have sticking the Ryzen 5 3600X into the AsRock? Because my current plan when I upgrade was in fact to slot a Ryzen 5 3600 into an AsRock Fatal1ty B350 miniITX board. Am I to gather from your shade at AsRock that this is in fact not a good upgrade plan? Also, how portable is the A1? Does it fit inside a standard size gym duffel bag for travel?

Fantastic work here. We tend to focus so much on gaming and HTPC rigs here on the site we forget that computers actually do WORK and are used more for productivity than gaming in the real world. This is a really unique utilitarian rig.

Impressive work given the choice of components. I have the FTZ 01 case myself and will never understand why Silverstone reconfigured their RVZ and FTZ console style cases to hold full size ATX size PSUs instead of just sticking with SFX sized ones. Would have made your life a lot easier. Can barely believe you actually got the ASUS RTX 2080Ti in there, it's technically a 3 slot card!

Comment reply on ++pg++'s Completed Build: Silverstone Grandia GD09 HTPC from old workstation parts

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Awesome work on the conversion. The Grandia 09 is a very underrated case, it fits perfectly with home theater components like a console style case but is large enough to house full ATX size components and has very smart airflow design. I almost went for it myself. As long as you don't need or want portability (the other major advantage of a console case which is why I ended up using the FTZ 01 instead), it's a perfect HTPC case. Not sure if you're a gamer but you may want to consider upgrading the mobo, graphics card, CPU and memory in the future to turn this into a living room gaming console as well. Well done.

Great stuff. I currently own a Silverstone FTZ 01 console style case and am happy with it but I absolutely love these slim "sandwich" style cases like the NCase, Dan M4, Loque and so many others coming to market. Really surprised that the big names like Silverstone and Cooler Master haven't made their own yet.

Bah, RGB is just a millenial fad! :P Great work on the PC. I particularly like the cute but obviously lethal little doomsday device sitting on the video card basking in the RGB glow.

Does your motherboard come with overclocking software? I use an ASRock and I find it's F- Stream Tuning software pretty good. It runs from Windows. However, do take note of LemmingSlayer's contrary stance to mine.

Really great write up on the history of getting this build together. I see many more PCs in your future now that you're a budding graphic designer.

Couple of notes on the overclocking: First, I had the same experience as you where the first attempt at overclocking via the BIOS made me believe I FUBAR'ed the PC. However, the manual showed me there is a way to reset the bios using a jumper setting. Check your Gigabyte manual to see if it's got one as well.

Second, try overclocking using the proprietary overclocking utility from within Windows itself. I usually find these work a lot better nowadays and less chance of messing everything up.

Your call sign makes me uncomfortable :P but I will post anyway to say very nice build and I agree that one exhaust fan is all that is needed to make it all complete. BTW, who is the angry little Pop Funko with the laser gun that is trying to destroy your brand new NVIDIA RTX graphics card? I grant that they are a total ripoff but destroying your new card with a laser after you just got it seems like a waste of money. :D

It is more than possible to get a 120 mm AIO cooler in the RVZ 03 case which has an identical interior to my FTZ 01S case. I use a MasterLiquid Lite 120mm with a slim fan and some creative fastener tinkering but I am equally amazed you put in a Corsair H60i with no difficulty. Very well done.

Very nice job. It's true, Ryzens, SSDs, and 1080 Tis all improve your cognitive, decision-making, memory and typographical skills -- especially during those long arduous Fortnite and Call of Duty sessions. In my college days, we called this "cramming". Not sure if you young 'uns still use that term today.

Great little ITX build. Never heard of this case maker before but it looks great.

Yes VEGA 64 which looked like a bad deal next to the GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti has now suddenly become competitive thanks to the bad value that is RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti.

I used to love Gigabyte but like you they have let me down with their recent AM4 motherboards and I have since switched over to ASRock.
