Sleeper PC builds projects mostly include some innovative ideas to acquire advance hardware to physically fit. I recently discover alike case with another type of build–reusing old hardware for an entirely different use.
Recently, YouTuber Tech By Matt goes about creating a proficient gaming PC within an old GameCube chassis. To see what’s inside he after taking up a broken console on eBay disassembled the system.
Matt gets an ASRock DeskMini A300 system with a plain slate to work with (albeit with few serious real estate limitations) and removed it from its power supply, motherboard, and some other equipment.
Moreover, Matt needed to build a custom motherboard tray from there which intended trimming out several internal points of attachments of the GameCube and making a plate using sheet aluminum.
Making of the front controller ports on the console operational with PC was one of the more complex aspects. Matt desired to put an optical drive also nevertheless he came to a decision to disregard this phase because it is very challenging to consider the system utilizes proprietary optical discs that are smaller than standard CDs.
Let’s have look on the full system specs:
- OCZ RVD400 512GB NVMe SSD
- 50mm cooling fan
- ASRock A300M-STX motherboard
- AMD Ryzen 3 3200G processor
- Crucial DDR4 – 3200 SODIMM 8GB x 2 RAM
The good news here is that this build does not need a slew of customization. It means that without a lot of effort or expertise, most average techies should have the possibility to manage a similar build.
