Part Reviews

CPU

Excellent little chip, pushes the graphics well.

Motherboard

Great feature rich motherboard. Only complaint is the lack of an extra fan header, as well as no support for thunderbolt usb connection (or any USB 3.1).

Memory

Memory is memory, this does the job well.

Case

Excellent case for a first time builder!

Wireless Network Adapter

Holds my connection well, dont experience to much signal loss and such.

Neat. Are you expecting any upgrades any time soon?

Hi there, thanks for asking!

As is, not in the next couple of years. I did choose the AM4 socket for it's upgrade path, so if my CPU slows down over time, I will consider and upgrade then, and will likely up my ram. Unfortunately this motherboard only support 32G so when that point comes, thats what I plan on doing.

Hi there I do like it the cube builds but there is not easy to do cable management special in windowed cases.. I have an ITX build in progress in Prodigi case now and find the way try to run cables around the cornes if is long enough and use ziptite to hold it in place.

like your parts list would like to build something very similar onetime.

good job +1

Thank you!

Cable management can definitely be a issue in a cube build due to the orientation of the motherboard (horizontal so it cant hide wiring) and the lack of built in cable management. However I was able to offset this by limiting the amount of cables I put into the system. I did this my spending the extra money on a fully modular power supply as well as using m.2 NVME storage instead of adding drives which require 2 wires each.

Thank you but the featured builds are always perfect and my is not.. still something what can be done. But there was no room in budget and time.
