Made this build for my uncle. He would buy Mac Minis every year or so off of Ebay and they would stop working after a while. Eventually ended up convincing him to make him this little computer. He really didn’t need a beefy CPU because all he does is uses it for browsing. Decided to go with the InWin Chopin case because it’s sexy, has a 150W PSU, and is really high quality. This was my second PC build and this was pretty difficult. It was really small making it hard to route some of the cables. I could’ve done a better job but I just wanted to put it together and get it going. Had to take it apart once so I could route some cables in a better way. Really glad with how it looks though, and hopefully it lasts longer than those Mac mini’s.
Edit: Had an M.2 SSD, and I could not download Windows OS on it, did nearly everything after hours. Decided to return it and got a 240gb PNY SSD. Windows OS downloaded like a charm, quick and easy.
Great price for great performance!
Runs perfectly at 2400.
Awesome case. Cable management kind of tough, but once you plan everything out, it’s pretty easy.
Cheapest Mini itx lga 1151 mobo I could find with WiFi and Bluetooth. By the way, do not use M.2 SSD on this mobo, I couldn't download OS on it. Normal SSD works great.
