First time building a PC. I wanted a machine to act as a home server (to host a few small websites and act as a development environment for some of my projects).
First, the case.
The Inwin Chopin is a good-looking case. It seems popular – so if your looking for the smallest possible case to fit a Mini ITX board, look no further.
The stock fan that came with the Ryzen 5 2400G would not comfortably fit in the case, so I opted for the recommended Noctua fan. The Noctua fan works extremely well, and 99% of the time you won't hear it unless you're stressing your CPU.
I couldn't find any other fans online that would fit with this setup – but Noctua is a good brand anyway (from what I've heard).
The biggest challenge was connecting cables to the motherboard, then organizing them in the case. It wasn't too difficult, considering I kept this build to a minimum set of components. (No dedicated GPU, and only using an SSD that was screwed on to the motherboard.)
From start to finish, the build took 2-3 hours. I was able to install Ubuntu Server 18.04 without issue.
My only complaint is the ugly color of the Noctua fan. I'm watching Noctua's new Chromax lineup to see if they release a fan that would fit this build, and wouldn't be so ugly.
Feel free to ask any questions!
