Not really a build log - recycled streaming PC for mom

Built this out of parts I had lying around so my mom had something to watch Netflix on, as well as play a bunch of old regional VHS rips of shows and movies that are hard to find online now. 


A B85 board and an i3 I had lying around, some green DDR3 RAM from a friend who fried the rest of his PC, a crappy Thermaltake power supply, and a 2.5" HDD that I found in a broken laptop. I found more HDDs that I might add to it later.


Ziptied to a metal grill that I found in the same bin as the broken laptop. 


USB hub and switches are from a front panel I found, which was no longer attached to a case.


It didn't need to look good, and recycled parts only meant I couldn't go out and buy a case. It was going into a TV cabinet anyway.


NOTE - the power cable has been tucked away, it was like that because I had to pull it out to check on things. There is a hole behind the PSU for the fan.


No description available.
