What started as a tight-budget iGPU-based system in 2017 turned into a modest gaming rig with an impulse-bought graphics card (got it for $150 when prices were ~$220). I'm planning an upgrade to the R5 2600 (or Ryzen 3xxx) down the line, along with some Samsung B-Die (and maybe a more efficient power supply with prettier sleeved cables).
The RAM is running at 2400mHz 10-13-13-28 1T (being single channel single rank helps a ton). I've gotten the 570 stable at 1450/2250+ for gaming, but have it clocked at 1200/2075 @ 850mV with compute mode on for crypto mining when I'm not playing games. The little orange accents were easily covered with sharpie for color neutrality purposes. Not that they're that noticeable anyways.
Temps are rather impressive for a case with such a restrictive front panel (~50C CPU, ~70C GPU). Removing the front panel only drops 5 degrees off of both - those Noctua fans are really doing their job well.
I'm not quite sure what the case even is, there's no branding on it or anything - I got it from my uncle with the floppy drive and DVD drive. The inside was spray-painted black (from a light grey), and a polycarbonate side panel window was double stick-taped to back of the panel (now with a hole cut in it and some rubber u-channel lining the edge). I added some RGB LEDs and a homemade aluminum sheet PSU shroud just for kicks. I think it looks quite the part.
Cool and quiet, while being relatively small.
A nice cheap stick of ram. Wasn't able to OC b/c of chipset limitations, but was able to get the timings down to 10-13-13-28 1T @ 2400mHz (1.45vDimm, 1.1VCCIO & VCCSA) - a pretty big decrease in latency from the XMP's 16-16-16.
Not modular, not the best in terms of efficiency, ketchup & mustard cables. Gets the job done though, and for cheap. The fan is a bit noisy at times.
Quiet little fan, moves a lot of air for its size.
Very quiet, and can overcome quite a lot of flow restriction.
A higher-than-60Hz monitor that's also IPS. I was able to overclock it to 78Hz before it getting upset that the input signal was out of range. Freesync is always a plus as well.
