HTPC InWin CHOPIN

I wanted something portable (in a bagpack) and powerful enough to play some games (RTS/LoL/OW/...) so i've decided to build something in the tiny IN WIN CHOPIN (BQ696).

Case: In Win CHOPIN (bq696). small, integrated 150 W psu, clean and with a small footprint. it was my best and only choice here!

CPU and MOBO : plenty of option here but i was pretty lucky back then, when i managed to get a nice Ryzen 3 3200G from a client for free. for the MOBO, i wanted something with wifi and bluetooth and with at least 1 m2 slot. For a reasonable price (110 €), i get this B450I aorus during sales.

RAM: 2*8 go 3200 mhz from a previous build. clean and with RGB :)

storage : 1 M2 Crucial P2 for games 1 SSD 2"5 (OS and software) 1HDD 2"5 (files and data)

Everything was pretty easy to build. My cable management was improved by removing the front panel and using pre cut hole for my CPU and storage alimentation (SATA cable too). Still some cable visible ( front panel, mobo, rgb) but i'm pretty happy with the result considering the lack of space here.

Add 2 RGB LED STRIP for chill.

Really nice looking build with plenty of feature in such a SFF. Still got some room for the OC but it's not on my plan right now.

In practice : LoL 60 FPS stables medium settings, surviving mars 50 fps hight settings, OW 60 FPS low settings....

temp : CPU under load 53 FPS to 58 FPS in OW CPU iddle 24° (19° ambiant).
