Description

For my first build I was looking for something compact that is capable of light gaming at 1080x2560 with decent framerates. After some consideration I decided to go with the Vega 11 integrated graphics of the 2400G instead of buying a dedicated GPU. This meant the PC could be smaller. Living in the attic, cases >50cm in height would take up half of my desk.

Parts

Ryzen 5 2400G

More than enough CPU power for my needs. Undervolted and slightly overclocked it. Can run older and not so demanding games at 1080x2560 without problems at decent framerates. Get's quite toasty with the Wraith Stealth but not enough to throttle.

ASRock B450 GAMING-ITX/AC

Great board. Has everything I could ask for. Mine sadly shipped with defect WLAN. After Months of not knowing what it was and trying to fix it I sent it back to my vendor who sent it to ASRock for testing. 3 weeks and still no results. Will update this once I know more.

Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB 3200MHz

It's Corsair. Mine is not a B-Die but runs at 3200 MHz without problems.

Samsung 860 EVO 500GB

I don't even know what to say here... Never had any problems. Worked right away. Is fast and reliable. 500GB is enough for a couple of games and all my documents I need from time to time. I use an external drive for backups and long-term storage.

Inwin Chopin

It's REALLY small and looks nice. Paying the premium price was definitely worth it! The PSU can handle the 2400G easily. Cablemanagement was challenging and tricky. Especially since this was my first build.

LG 29UM59-P 29" 1080p Ultrawide

75Hz IPS panel with FreeSync. Backlight bleed is barely noticeable and FreeSync makes gaming fun even at lower framerates. Was skeptical about 21:9 at first. Got used to it very fast and don't think I'll ever look back. It's amazing for productivity and gaming.

I may take a couple of days to respond to questions but feel free to ask.

EDIT: Got a new Motherboard. Updated the pictures.

Part Reviews

CPU

Awesome CPU with amazing integrated graphics and a decent cooler. Can recommend it.

Motherboard

Great board. Has everything I could ask for.

-1 star because mine shipped with defect WLAN and I'm still waiting for ASRock to send me a new one.

EDIT: Got a new one after ~4 weeks. 5 stars

Memory

It's Corsair. Mine is not a B-Die but runs at 3200 MHz without problems. (2400G)

Storage

Never had any problems. Worked right away. Is fast and reliable.

Case

Beautiful sff case. The PSU can handle a 2400G easily. Cablemanagement was tricky.

Monitor

75Hz IPS panel with FreeSync. Backlight bleed is barely noticeable and FreeSync makes gaming fun even at lower framerates. Was skeptical about 21:9 at first. Got used to it very fast and don't think I'll ever look back. It's amazing for productivity and gaming.

Nice build, I'm thinking of doing something very similar with the Chopin for a travel build. Vega 11 (the 2400G iGPU) does support Freesync so make sure that's enabled on AMD's software as well as in the monitor settings. That should help if your getting FPS dips in your games. Also after enabling Freesync if the games FPS are stable but look like there stuttering then changing the cable to Displayport should fix it.

FreeSync is enabled. Would use DP but the Monitor is HDMI only.

Does the build perform well at that resolution with the Division 2?

I don't know. Don't have it. I can play Oldrim with 150 mods and medium to high settings at 40-50 fps. FreeSync helps a lot here... TF2 runs at 50-80 fps at max. settings. Source games in general hit 60+ most of the time.

That's risky with a 150 watt power supply. I heavily recommend switching that out asap

It's a good quality PSU and easily handles the 2400G + CPU/iGPU overclocking.

But it is only 150 watts. That will not be able to overclock very much without being a significant fire hazard.

Some have gotten overclocks as high as 4ghz on that PSU. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/dk7WGX

Even L30 was able to get almost 3.8ghz. The 2400G doesn't use much even post overclocking and the PSU will handle up to 150W easy.

If it was a garbage PSU it wouldn't be in a Inwin product.

Had the same concern. As WildCard999 stated, many have gotten higher overclocks than I did without problems. Especially after undervolting it's not a problem.
