Description

I built this Media/Streaming PC to get away from my hot 4790k OC / 780Ti OC SLI rig.

It's built to watch YouTube/series/movies without the need to turn on the big beast.

Or to sit in a nice cold room and play a demanding game relaxed via Steam in home streaming while the other PC heats up the room upstairs.

I underclocked the GPU and CPU and set custom fan profiles with afterburner and speedfan to get them cooler and quieter.

The Apollo case is just a placeholder, because I bought a relatively cheap old silver case on ebay and I don't know the manufacturer.

The case has a QCB stamp from 2006-4-13 so I guess it's just over 10 years old now. It has absolutely no room for cable management, I didn't even know where to place the PSU, so it sits there in the front awkwardly.

I got all the parts on ebay for a decent price except for the mobo, but you nearly never find ones under 30 bucks, so it's an okay price.

(I'm not a native speaker, sorry for my not that great English)

1+ for the rigged up PSU. And that is a suprisingly attractive case. Looks like an awesome media PC. I used the same CPU in my main rig from late 2008 to 2014, Good pricing. Makes me want to do an old-schhol ebay build.

LOL WTF is up with that case? I think it was meant for smaller form factor PSUs, but really? There's no mounting brackets?

There was a little hook glued at the back over the mobo where you could mount compatible PSU's.

But obviously modern PSUs won't fit.

Damn that gtx 460 is old. But in all seriousness that pc must be great for just a living room htpc

The CPU doesn't have onboard graphics, so I just needed something for video output.

Yesterday I played The Witcher 3 maxed out at 1080p 60 fps via in home streaming, so it's all I need for now.
