Description

My main goal was to run Big Box using Game Stream on Shield TV. I also wanted to do some things I haven't done such as SFF, RGB, and up to date. 1st issue was not checking compatible RGB with my system which added about $100. IMO it was worth it. If i want to do something different I can move the fans and LEDS to my kids PC and its plug and play. 2nd issue was updating the BIOS. Updated bios after it ran for a couple of days and got black screen OS. PC turned on and booted. My keyboard LEDS stay one color until windows starts so I know windows was booting. Did a whole lot of unnecessary troubleshooting, resetting the CMOS fixed it. Spent the water cooler funds on a second Shield TV and no need to upgrade the GPU until I get better monitors.

I haven't messed with Shield TV but I have a Steam Link and the way it all panned out sounds about like this. Nice build.

Thanks. I'm usually digging in the last gen/used bin. It's really nice to have something up to date. Shield has steam link. A lot of games you can stream from Nvidia if you own it and not use the game stream. I wasn't aware of this but you still need an Nvidia card.

the top fan is facing the wrong way

Top front or top? I did the top front that way because I like the lights. The top fan and the back fan were facing that way when the case came. My temps stay all right I don't overclock anything.

Sorry. I meant top front. The rest is fine. The condition right now. You're cpu is getting hot air from the gpu.

I will flip it tomorrow and check it out. I assumed with one in and 3 out it would disperse the heat better. If that one were blowing in it would force all the heat to the back of the case. If I gamed for hours the air passing over the Mobo would be like a hot stream of air.

Bottom front fan will supply cool air for gpu just fine, but the hot air is coming out from the side of the gpu, it will rise and would sucked down by cpu cooler.

But it won't hurt just to flip 1 fan to see if there's better temp result.

It's nice to see someone else who uses NVIDIA GameStream. Wonderful build!

Checkout Moonlight, you can stream to almost any device. (Even a Raspberry Pi)

They are alright. I do some video encoding it never has heat throttled.
