Description

After saving up for over a year, I finally put this pc together. I've always wanted an ITX build so I chose the NCASE M1 for its size without sacrificing thermals and flexibility. I went all air cooling and I love the silent redux fans. I decided not to go with custom cables but I may sleeve my own someday. I think the cable management still looks great for stock cables. An epic build montage is on youtube documenting this build here: https://youtu.be/mORFI9XoqSs. I edited all the footage on this computer and shot it on my dad's phone (This PC blazed through the 4K render of the montage in just 10 minutes!) . Feel free to critique my build and footage below. I will be using his pc for editing, 3d modeling, programming, gaming and schoolwork. I hope to use this pc throughout high school and into college. Thanks for checking out my build!

EDIT: (oh yeah if theres not many good photos thats because theres a lot more footage in my build montage on youtube at the link above)

About the part choices: CPU: I went ryzen because I wanted great productivity usage and gaming performance.

RAM: 16 gigs is perfect and I wanted 3200mhz speed for ryzen

mobo: The asus x470i is $50 more and literally the only difference is that is has rgb on the nvme heatsink. The vrms, i/o and sata/nvme slots are exactly the same, also because i wont be using sli or crossfire on an itx mobo anyways. That's why i went with the b450i

PSU: sfx, 600w gold, silent, what else could you want?

CPU cooler and fans: Noctua makes some great stuff. while editing i barely hear the fans kick up and while gaming I cant hear it through my headphones. I went with redux because I prefer the color scheme.

Case: I went with the NCASE M1 because it is the perfect balance between size, thermals and performance.

SSD: the ssd is speedy fast! I yawn and i miss the boot.

Periphs: mostly personal preference

I didn’t like the lighting where the plant would be reflected in the glass so I took two photos and overlayed them
