Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Able to direct play 4K youtube/4K movies.

Storage is separate on NAS. PSU and Case are plenty in my house.

 

What do you think?

I am set on the cooler, but i need help with software, my other HTPC is running windows 7 so it can use outdated windows media center, which is very good in my coutry for TV and TV recording, but i want this one to run windows 10, any ideas?

if you want a super small form factor PC, try looking into pico PSU, they're perfect for that kind of application, and your PC isnt that high power draw anyway

Only pico PSU that is being sold around here is 150W with 92%. That is not enough sadly,

Well i already got couple of PSUs and Cases, also it has only SODIMM RAM slots, and those are more expensive, not a value for me in the end.
