Hi guys, A few weeks ago I set out on the task of making myself a HTPC, but I wanted something special, so I shoved a whole computer inside of an original xbox case. Finished Product: Specs (Already had some components from previous build): PCPartPicker part list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/K4Z7bj CPU: Intel - Core i5-7600 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor (£201.00 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: Silverstone - AR06 40.2 CFM CPU Cooler (Purchased For £0.00) Motherboard: ASRock - H270M-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard (£108.16 @ BT Shop) Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£112.98 @ Ebuyer) Storage: Western Digital - Green 120GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive (£52.31 @ CCL Computers) Storage: Seagate - Momentus SpinPoint 2TB 2.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive (Purchased For £0.00) Storage: Seagate - Archive 8TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive (Purchased For £0.00) Video Card: MSI - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Low Profile Video Card (£138.16 @ CCL Computers) Power Supply: SeaSonic - 300W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular Flex ATX Power Supply (£60.00) Other: NOCTUA NF-A6x25 PWM (£11.90) Other: Original Xbox (£15.00) Total: £699.51 Some Comments: Graphics card never reaches 65c~ under load Processor almost never reaches 70c~ under load I was really worried the small FlexATX power supply would sound like a jet as its basically a server power supply, but the fan is completely silent, even under load. I had to check that the fan was working as I was getting worried but all is good! Fans are audible in a quiet room but any noise will drown them out (like from a TV). Side fan is set to silent, I don't think I needed to use it with the middle cut out and meshed. Runs Windows 10 Enterprise with a custom shell that boots into Kodi for TV, Movies, Music, etc. Has the option to launch BigBox for emulation. It can run anything up to and including Wii U games (Although that emulator is still in development!).
