Mini HTPC

Build Description

I wanted a small yet powerful enough PC to use as a home theater PC to run plex and browse the net on my television. A mini ITX form factor motherboard and compatible case worked out amazing.

Favorite Feature

The case is my favorite part. The Silverstone SG13. I really like the small footprint that fits nicely under my TV.
