Description

Mini-ITX music studio rig for professional music & video production as well as other content creation.

Compact, powerful and packed with features. Large storage capacity with room to upgrade. Went with an RX580 to stay within budget but not skimp on the quality of the other parts (5500xt wasn't out yet) And the user doesn't game much (might change now that he has a rig that can XD) Easy upgrade if he decides to go in that direction.

Stock cooler works well enough for the type of use it's getting right now, but will most likely put an aftermarket cooler on it soon.

How is the cpu holding out?

With the stock cooler it maxes out at 79c, so not bad really. Not sure if that is at full boost clock though, I don't have the rig with me anymore to doublecheck.

If you're able to, try to get the memory to hit 3600Mhz, as that frequency with tight timings will help with memory latency for music production.

I can try with this RAM, I would have bought the triden-z neo but had to keep some things trimmed down to keep it under budget.

The front panel header on this H210i is a Gen 2, 3.1 connector so I’ve read. The X570 board from Gigabyte doesn’t have a Gen 2 connector. What did you do? Or did you just not connect it?

Didn't connect it, there is a USB-C port on the back of the motherboard.
