This build was for my wife as she gets heavily into content creation. The parts focus mostly on video editing and an occasional dabble in Adobe Photoshop.
At first, the ITX platform was a pain to build as it was my first one. Everything was a lot tighter and I quickly realized that I would have to pick up a fan hub to control the 4 fans around the case.
The small form factor of the build fits perfectly with her desk setup. We approached it with minimalism in mind and it turned out better than we expected.
Great performance and price! The Ryzen 9 platform brought a wonderful experience to this build. 12-Cores was a welcoming addition to video editing and it is a rendering beast! Especially while multitasking from different applications for content creation.
A solid processor.
Everything you needed on an ITX board. Fits my needs perfectly. It also looks really good! Ready for PCIe 4!
The wifi is a definite plus!
In the land of RAM, I believe Corsair is up there as one of the most innovative. The RGB on these are stellar!
Definitely the coolest RAM sticks I've ever bought.
A simple working drive with a lot of uses. For the price, you do get a lot!
No complaints SSD!
Fast and furious! The main OS drive for my computer. Loads everything up quick and snappy!
Highly rated SSD!
An archive drive that does its job well. I haven't had any issues with this HDD and it's always a plus to pair it with a working SSD.
You can't go wrong with a Nvidia card. The GTX 1070 is not an exception. It blazes through graphics intensive games and works great on video editing.
Still a beast!
Beautiful. One of the nicest looking cases for a small build. The tempered glass adds a touch of elegance to any build. Wish the non-RGB version came with a fan hub.
The wonder box.
Great looking keyboard! Wish the battery life was better.
Amazing tech in a mouse! Fits well in the hands and performs tasks flawlessly. Waking up from sleep is a little slow, though. Saving battery life, I guess...
