First time posting my guts. Old thread was nearing limit anyhow.

How did I do /g/?

At least the cables are nice, maybe move your system fan 1 cable up top instead of it going over your PCI slots
>>
>>45759442
>not mounted
Yes, it is, there are screws in it.

Why upgrade the cooler? this one works fine.

No GPU because I don't play games, this isn't a gaming computer.

You forgot to plug in the power for your drive

Also that's the audio not the fan connector.

>>45759454
Lol I booted it and everything without a power cable on it, was wondering why it didn't detect the HD then remembered I forgot to hook it up.

Pic of the back side you can see the power cable after I ran it, front side you can't see it yet.

Under max load with minimal case airflow, PSU capped at 67.
Is that any good?

You can buy motherboards like these that are smaller, and usually a little cheaper. They have one PCI and are great for small, efficient builds. You clearly did not research enough before building that thing.
>>
>>45759536
Why would I wanna have something that small?
Why would I want to limit future upgrade abilities?

I did reseach, I bought a case that could accept 14 inch GPUs and a 550w power supply because I anticipated possibly needing a GPU.

The case is a cooler master N200, it's plenty small enough and still able to accept full sized cards without difficulty.

Stop acting like a know-it-all who thinks he knows what's best for everybody else you stupid faggot.

Hi /guts/

>>45759358

Not bad, but the colour scheme is inconsistent - blue, red _and_ yellow?

>>45759374

This cable management is really well done, would look better with black zipties though.

I have to ask though, why a mATX tower if it only has two DIMMs and one SSD, and doesn't have any expansion cards or HDDs? This seems like a job for mITX, or at least a more compact mATX case like a SG09.

>>45759477

That WD Blue kills me every time, anon. ;_;
>>
>>45759581
>would look better with black zipties though.
All out of black, I only put the white zip ties on out of sight though, you can't see any of them from the open side of the case.

Thanks though.

Forgot to add that I play on using this as a HTPC, so big TB HDs will come later, and I didn't want to limit myself when it comes to processing power and cut off the extra slots.

>>45759598
My brother likes to play games so I got this as he may want to purchase a card for it.
I don't play games so I never bought the card, it's on him.

you know mitx doesn't preclude long gpus, 550W psus etc, right?

Why get an overpriced CPU and keep that shit-tier GPU?

I don't care, I didn't wanna have to deal with a small case, why are you so butthurt that I didn't get a smaller case?

why would i be butthurt?

enjoy your waste of space lol
>>
>>45759662
So far every assumption you've made has been wrong.
I already said I'm gonna use it as a HTPC, load it up with HDDs, and my brother may want to game on it, you are extremely asspained.
>>
>>45759645
Had the GPU from an older build.
Hoping to pick up a 290x sometime in the future though

Hide your HDD power cable better. Route your 24pin.

Sounds like a job for a Node 304 or something anon, not a mATX tower. Jussayin

If you really want a AMD card and you aren't buying it now, wait for the R9 390's, it's rumored that they will be the first to jump to 3D memory, blowing the shit out of GDDR5.

I don't think anyone was actually trying to troll you. You just randomly started throwing a temper tantrum and calling people names for no real reason.
>>

The coloring will be fixed in the near future.
>>
>>45759765
I wasn't throwing a tantrum, I didn't state what my plans were, he assumed what my plans were without knowing a damn thing, then he posts derogatory images and comments.

Where did the first name calling happen?

Sadly there's not enough room with this case, putting on the back panel was already a struggle.

How about we show this little quote right here, a post before mine.

>>45759536
>You clearly did not research enough before building that thing.

This is totally not insulting or derogatory in any way.

This isn't helpful in any way what so ever, it's just some guy being a stupid cunt.

"You clearly did not research enough before building that thing", isn't name-calling or even insulting, you just took it too personally dude.

How is that not insulting?

It's directly attacking me and telling me I made poor decisions when he doesn't even know the intended purpose of my machine, which is HTPC with possible gaming.

What do you have a hard time understanding here??
>>
>>45759802

You think

>Stop acting like a know-it-all who thinks he knows what's best for everybody else you stupid faggot

is an appropriate response to

>You clearly did not research enough before building that thing

For real?
>>
>>45759828
He literally had no idea what the intended purpose of my machine was, then went on to tell me I made improper decisions, how is that not insulting?

And since when does somebody get so butthurt over it, is this your first time on 4chan or what?

Can't handle being called a faggot?
>>
>>45759838

>how is that not insulting?

A little.. I guess? You're still immature for reacting like a 12-year-old

>Can't handle being called a faggot?

I'm not even the guy you called a faggot, kek

Can't handle criticism?
>>
>>45759847
What criticism, there was nothing to criticize, that's the entire point of all my posts.

He thinks he knew what I wanted, he thinks he knows what my computer is for and what components would be best for me, he is incorrect.

Every suggestion he made, I shot down with a logical reason and argument, I don't understand where the confusion is here.

>>
>>45759838
guy who you called faggot here, even if you had planned on gaming, m-itx can support 1GPU, and plenty of m-itx cases can house full size gpu. And you did state what you weren't doing with it.
"No GPU because I don't play games, this isn't a gaming computer"

What aren't YOU understanding?
>>
>>45759872

You backtracked like fuck on the GPU thing. Literally "this isn't a gaming computer", then later you say "oh well actually it will be used for gaming".

You misrepresent your intentions and then are surprised when you're taken on your word? Piss off mate.
>>
>>45759884
I don't play games, but my brother does, and he may want to game on it, so I left the option of adding GPU(s!!!), if he pleases.

It's intended to be used in my home theater, hence the empty HD slots which will be filled when needed.


I don't see an advantage to using a smaller case, why have 2 dimms when you can have 4, why have 1 pcie when you can have 2, why have to deal with a cramped case when you can have tons of space, why would you limit yourself in all these aspects?? for the simple reason of having a smaller case? are you kidding me?

It's not even a mid size or full size tower, it's a fucking mini, holy hell dude.

>>45759904
Read my fucking post, the only advantage of getting a smaller case is just that, a smaller case.
How the fuck does that help me at all?
Seriously.
It's going to be behind a curtain in a home theater, who fucking cases if I got a MINI instead of a micro, I have massive upgrade ability as is.
>>
>>45759928
Okay. That is logical. But you didnt have to call someone a faggot to make that point.

Why would I make a massive post explaining the purpose of my computer?
I didn't anticipate some random guy to attack me and question the purpose of it.

Maybe in the future I'll be sure to lay out 500 letter posts about the intention of everything I do before posting to avoid this.
