My previous gaming computer served me well for the past several years, but having to lug an EATX case down the stairs to my VR setup got tiring. For this build, I decided to downsize to mini-ITX. Thus, Vapor was born. Vapor lives a double life. On my desk it serves as a traditional gaming PC for games like Doom, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Rocket League. Plug in the Oculus Rift and it becomes a beastly virtual reality rig that can handle the most demanding titles like Half-Life: Alyx, Boneworks, and Blade & Sorcery. While many small form factor PC cases can be difficult to work in, the NCASE M1 proved to be much easier than anticipated. Some small cases are built on "sandwich style" setups dependent on riser cables and restricted airflow potential. The NCASE M1 is the perfect middle ground between size and cooling performance, and doesn't require any riser cables. The popularity of the NCASE M1 on enthusiast forums like /r/sffpc led to a wealth of knowledge and guides. One person even made a spreadsheet comparing several different cooling solutions and their temperatures. Finding and assembling all the parts was made much easier with the community's expertise, and I couldn't be more thankful. While I'm currently content with the thermals, I know I can do better. In early 2021 I want to replace the cooler on my GPU with the heatsink from an Arctic Accelero Xtreme III, and fit two 120mm Noctua NF-A12x25 fans underneath. This mod will decrease GPU temperatures dramatically, and help me fully realize my big air ambitions for this build: Big fans, big airflow, cooler temperatures. I'm also considering upgrading the motherboard to one that supports front-panel USB C ports like the one on the front of the my case. Lastly, I thought about replacing the side panel with a tempered glass one. However, the "RGB lights shining through holes" look is really growing on me.

Built this system primarily as a hobby and for PC gaming including (but of course not limited to) Assetto Corsa, Rocket League, Battlefield, Squad, and Insurgency Sandstorm. The CPU and GPU are a bit dated now so I am planning on a CPU and GPU update once the 3000 Nvidia series is released.

I originally built this pc just for the sole purpose of having a challenge. I have never been a pc before this one I've only ever used MacBooks through high school and college. I wanted to actually turn this into a hakintosh but once is was finished I kinda fell in love with it as it is! I use it for daily computing, research, the occasional gaming (GTA5, fortnite, cod) and music library organization. I dj most every Friday and Saturday night using a MacBook Pro as my go to gig computer, this workstation is perfect for staying at home containing most of my music library. I plan on upgrading the gpu and cpu down the road but for now this works way better than I planned on originally. I have a massive amount of storage for how small this thing is and plan to add more. total I would like 6-8 TB.

This is my secondary PC used exclusively for running my HTC VIVE in my VR play space. It was named after the virtual world in the book Ready Player One, and features a retro "vaporwave" color scheme. This was actually my first foray at building an mITX system and was a fun adventure to embark on. I actually documented the build process back in January on my YouTube channel called GTech (https://www.youtube.com/GTechOfficial). I absolutely love talking about anything and everything tech-related, with a main focus on PC hardware and gaming PC builds. Some of my most-viewed content is actually the trips that I've made up to my local Micro Center location to purchase hardware as I tend to go with several friends and make it an all-day adventure. This is just one of my systems that have been featured on my channel so if you'd like to see more of it, I'd really appreciate it if you took a look at my channel.

My goal with this build was to make a small future-proof machine that I could stuff massive amounts of processing power down the line. This is used for schoolwork, gaming, and video editing. My hopes are to eventually upgrade the CPU and GPU, to show that I can cram at least a AMD 12-core + 2080ti into this small of a PC. At this point, the X570 board is a waste, but again, I plan to upgrade to 3rd gen Ryzen eventually. And yes, the blower graphics card is loud. Really loud. And hot. I also want to change the case out, maybe to a NR200 when that comes out, as well as put a custom loop on it (?). The RAM and fan configs have changed over time, but it always has been 16gb. One thing I really regret is getting the Vega 64. I have experienced awful artifacting and coil whine. Although the latter is inevitable, the artifacting was probably caused by my terrible undervolting skills. At times, it idles at 85 degrees Celsius. As I live in a small room with close to no air conditioning, my room easily gets up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit when the PC is on. If I were to do something different about this build, it would most certainly be to avoid Vega. But hey, it's a decent performing card!

It's my only desktop, and it's the only one I'll likely have in the foreseeable future. I only got a job about 14 months ago, and this PC has been sort of a passion project for me. Originally, I had hoped to spend about $1000 dollars accumulated over a 3 month period on this rig, however, my expectations were out of line to say the least. At the end of last summer, I had saved around $350 for the computer I wanted to build. I had high hopes for this computer, and I wanted it to be able to handle anything I could throw at it right from the get-go as soon as possible, that including video work, Photoshop, Unity Engine, Virtual Reality, and more than 2 tabs of Google Chrome. Initially, I had started with an AMD Ryzen 2200G, no GPU, only 1TB HDD space for games (Yes it had an SSD in it to boot, I'm not that insane), a $28 dollar case straight off the boat from China, and a measly 4x3 LCD monitor from 1999. Luckily, I was able to net an AMD Radeon RX570 a paycheck after I completed the initial building process, so I wasn't stuck on integrated graphics for too terribly long. However, what I was stuck on for a long time was the dreaded POST codes. My motherboard was an older revision or something akin to that, and as such, my CPU just didn't work. Nada. Nope. It took me a good long while to realize why it wouldn't POST at all until I read up on AMD's Boot Camp program. So I ordered a loaner chip from AMD, an Athlon chip if I recall correctly, and was able to get the machine up and running a couple of hours after it came in. I ran this setup for a long while until around March of this year. I've gotta say, Virtual Reality does NOT pair well with a $100 CPU and a $80 GPU. I ended up finding a decently priced 1070TI off of eBay, and that's what I've been running for the past couple of months. However, a $100 CPU still doesn't pair well with Virtual Reality, so I ended up selling a PS3 I had jailbroken (My side hustle at the time) and my old RX570 on eBay for some high prices in hindsight. Both sold, and I upgraded to a 2600X that was on sale at Microcenter for $100 down from $210 as soon as I got my money from Paypal. Man, I love Ryzen pricing. We also ended up running some CAT5e cables through our house's rafters in the basement, and I was able to run a LAN connection to my PC that was previously all the way across the house from our WIFI router, an old Linksys model that just couldn't hold the 20+ devices on our network. I changed out my case for an NZXT H500 earlier this summer, and it is downright simple to build in compared to my old case. I no longer have any desk space, but at least I now have proper RGB! I probably won't upgrade this any time soon except for the PSU, which is just a ticking time bomb at this point. It really has no issue tackling whatever I throw at it and it tends to just work. I went from my old 13" Dell Latitude E6330 to a 128GB Surface Go just because I don't need another powerful device, just one for taking notes and one for doing workloads or games. It's quite a useful machine for the price and it was a lot of fun to build, especially considering all the money came from sweeping the floors of a local Mom and Pop shop. I'm glad to live so close to a Microcenter just because the deals there are just so good sometimes. The new parts in my computer are only new because they needed to be or they were at an extremely low price at a store that was only 30 minutes out. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

I had been using a MSI gaming laptop for 6 years but now things have changed! This was my first mini-ITX build and also the first time using rigid tubing! It was an exciting build to explore liquid cooling and create a system for 1440p gaming. Runs many games really smooth on 1440p. such as World of Tanks, Destiny 2, GTA 5, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, COD Warzone, and... I'll need more storage space for more games. For future upgrades, I would like to add two 1TB SATA SSDS and if necessary another 1TB NVMe Drive. I like playing all types of games and look forward to having a large library of games to choose from instead of uninstalling and reinstalling all the time. Doing the PETG tube bends in the H210i was a challenge but it was so satisfying to utilize most of the space in a small case. I'm thinking of adding one of the dyes that came with the Liquid Devil when I drain the distilled water to install Noctuas in the front of the case; currently using Cougar 120mms. CPU and GPU temps at idle are 40-45C, as ambient is above 32C since I built this PC. At loads, temps range from 55 to 65C depending on the game. Undervolted the 5700XT and not OC'ing the 3700x. Little worried about the CPU temps being higher than the GPU at idle but I will continue to monitor it.

I could have gone with a dual screen monitor but one seamless 49" monitor is more aesthetically pleasing. Most of the budget was spend on aesthetics rather than performance due to the low demands of a trading platform. I believe that this setup is pretty well rounded for other task including light gaming. Parts and specs of this build is pretty mid-range running a full AMD build with plans for future upgrade if necessary.

I use this PC for gaming as well as general tasks such as programming, photoshop and surfing the web. The games that I mainly play include LoL, Valorant, Minecraft and Stardew Valley, which are all pretty light games so I don't need anything too top-of-the-line. I feel like I have tailored this PC to fit exactly what I need for the things that I do.; My build is not overkill where I waste money on performace I don't need, but it also isn't too cheap where my PC can't keep up with the things I do. My most recent upgrade was my processor and ram. I upgraded from an Intel i3-6100 to an ryzen 5 3600 and 8gb ddr3 ram to 16gb of ddr4. Drastic improvement at a great price. One part of my PC that I did spend a little more money on was my PSU. I feel like investing in a good quality PSU will keep my PC running without issues,and it is also something that I don't plan on replacing any time soon. I am looking to do more video editing and 144hz gaming so I think my next upgrade will be a better graphics card. I am also considering adding an m.2 drive for more storage and faster r/w speeds. Any suggestions on good parts for upgrade are welcome :). The message that I want to send with my PC build for first time PC builders is to know exactly what you want to do with your PC before picking out parts. This will help you budget your build so that you are getting the best performance without wasting money on overkill computing power that you do not need!

It is a budget build for my home use; I do a lot of sound producing for work and my studio system packs some power but it is a Mac, still. I wanted to be able to do some light gaming, also do some work like sound and video editing, some light graphic design, lots of proof reading for commercial spots and lately lots of video conferencing. I use a TV as a monitor, it is full HD and 60 Hz so it is what I need. This system is my personal rig and it's located on my bedroom so I also use it as a media hub. As this was gonna go in my bedroom I took the design very much into consideration and I put a lot of thought in to it when I was figuring out my budget for this build. The White LED Fans and the back RGBW LED on the TV make the whole work space feel on the same page. Even with the white LED Fans not being able to change colors, the other colors on my Logitech keyboard and the TV's Backlight make everything pop. I started building this system gradually. That last piece that came in was the GPU, I started with my old GTX 740 from my old system to start using it and upgraded it to my GTX 1650 as soon as I could, I have it paired with a Ryzen 5 2600. It is a budgewt system, but fairly powerful. I still think I have two weak links on which compromises were made, which are my A320m Motherboard and the 450W EVGA power supply. They limit how much I can upgrade this system so I'm looking to first get the motherboard as I get ready for a Ryzen 4000 Series upgrade also the Power supply has to go If I'm getting a better GPU so I'm thinking on swapping both on the same run. Love the Micro ATX format on my motherboard, I paired it with the Yeyian case I got in Mexico as I come back and forth from TX to Monterrey and I love how it sits on my desk. It is a budget case but I love the looks. I had an issue with my gigabyte Motherboard and my case as I wasn't able to get the front USB 3.0 working, and after a chipset driver upgrade, bios upgrade and looking for solutions, I figured It was either an issue with the motherboard or the case header, so I let it go and I'll wait for the next upgrade. This first build just made me want to spend more time and money on my set up which I'm very much looking forward to do.

It did its job, but it was starting to fail, and honestly, it was so slow and the tiny cooling fan was really high pitched and loud. After my love of building reignited with my own system, I decided to finally do something about my parents' system. Also, they help watch my kids when my wife and I are busy, and it's important to have a system that is snappy and responsive in Windows or YouTube or Netflix Kids, etc. Building in the In Win Chopin is definitely a treat. It's beautiful and my parents love that it doesn't take up too much space on their desk. In order to get the side panel closed, I had to remove the fan shroud from the Wraith Stealth cooler (easily done by removing a single screw from underside of the heat sink and undoing four clips, though this isn't possible if the cooler is already mounted). This was my first time building in such a small enclosure, and hopefully it won't be my last! I still need to build a system for my eldest son when he gets old enough. Probably will stick to mini ITX so that I can teach him to take his system out and clean it when necessary.

After enjoying my Prometheus v3 build for a few months and seeing that the Ryzen 5 1600 was still on sale, I replaced the guts of an old Pentium 4 class machine with another build in December 2019. I use this machine to run virtual servers for my development purpose, and I stuck a graphics card in it this spring to also do Folding@Home. I know the 20 year old case desperately needs replaced, and the hard drives I use to store the virtual machines on are aging, but I like to get value out of the parts I buy so it was good enough at the time for a home server.
