Traditional desktop PC usually comes with large size of case, motherboard, and other parts. For some advanced players, they make the most of its interfaces and space to setup extreme water cooling which ensures maximum thermal dissipation and performance. However, most of the PC users don't treat their case as that kind of machine, it's quite common to see users buying a big PC case but uses a small amount of its space, choosing a standard motherboard but end up occupying less than half of its interfaces.
Inwin released the mini-ITX A1 in 2018, it blew me away with its' compact and elegant body, nice RGB chassis and the additional wireless charging function, so I decided to build up a great PC using this case. It took me nearly a whole month to figure out which part fits this case best, and the part list of this post is my final verdict.
Inwin launched A1+ with new addressable RGB bottom strip, I bought one and replaced it with mine, the result is insane.
The wireless charging module has a micro USB input, I made a MOLEX-micro B adaptor to supply the module with 5V power, now wireless charging is available when the system is on (I'm not turning it off anyway).
The best CPU comes with an m-ITX board
Actually it's 32GB in my build, I personally think it looks better than the popular Trident RGB.
The best SSD in the market
The SSD which has the greatest cost-performance ratio.
This drive is the largest 2.5-inch HDD you can buy currently.
I honestly prefer FE rather than STRIX or AORUS because of the cleanness design.
I've been using the stock PSU for a while, it worked fine during normal usage, but when it comes to heavy load situation, the PSU just shut down immediately, so I replaced it with the best SFX format SF-750, everything goes fine now.
I put these three fans at the bottom (intake x2) and the side (exhaust x1), providing both good airflow and visual effect.
I expect CPU fan to be both quiet and effective, Noctua has the most airflow/pressure at the same sound level comparing to others.
