APU powered NES PC

After disappointing TTL by not using the forums for my build log... Here I am!

I'm in the process of building a NES PC.

Specs:
Motherboard: MSI A88XI V2
Processor: AMD A10-7870k
Cooler: Corsair H5 SF
Ram: Vulcan 8GB (2x4G 2133MHz kit
PSU: Some tiny unbranded psu - not the typical pico psu as I don;t want a hefty power brick to carry!

I did measure before ordering the cooler but damn, going to be a tight fit. I already know it’s too tall for the case but I am going to see if I’m able to trim the brackets to reduce the height. If it’s no use, I’ll order a Silverstone AR06.

-Pants optional

Trimmed the bottom case slightly to do a test fit of the motherboard and PSU, couldn’t do anymore as my Dremel 3000 randomly died on me so I’ll bring that into college and see if it can be saved.


I plan on using a metal motherboard tray which will be modified to hold the motherboard and the PSU, like a removable motherboard tray but it’ll be secured to the case.

I'm loving this idea.

Can a mod please merge the top two posts? There was no reason when it needed to be two posts and not one.

Well each post is a progress update so I'd have thought it makes sense split them up rather than just waiting til I've finished and making one post.

It is technically against the rules to double post, though I am not sure if a progress update like this breaks the rules....

Looks good though. Consider me subbed to this project.

I wouldn't think build logs would count for that.
Hope the cooler fits - should be a nice end result!

You can double triple quadruple post in build logs. It doesn't matter here.

We tend to be a bit more relaxed when it comes to consecutive posting on build logs and leave it up to the OP to structure it how they want.. unless it becomes unreadable of course.
