[Build Log] First HTPC

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello my name is Duane and this is my first build log on here, so don't judge it! Joking, feel free lol... I decided to build my first HTPC to use in my living room with my not new but new to me 52 inch Phillips flat screen. I will also do some light gaming on it with titles like Skyrim, CSGO, HALO 1, HL2 etc.

I am totally new to Kodi and just loaded it on my main rig yesterday, it's alright. I'm sure i would like it more if i could figure out how to load Netflix or HBO GO on it (If that's possible). And maybe other cool add ons? Wouldn't mind some tips! I did order a mini wireless Lynec keyboard/mouse controller because it seems cool and helpful.

So here are the specs of the machine. All of the parts are already ordered, i only got a few in so far. Everything bought from Amazon, just because...

I already have a extra hard drive (500gb Seagate sata) and LG sata dvd rw optical drive i will be using.

The memory came in today, it looks cool at least.



The rest is expected to ship tomorrow, so it should be here in 2 to 3 days, we'll see. I only have Tuesdays and Wednesdays off work which stinks.


Also i did pick up my new tv stand, looks a lot better!

Okay so the rest of the parts came in today! Since i had the day off i finished the build in only an hour, spent another hour installing programs and drivers. It was smooth sailing, not one problem.
So enjoy the rest of the build. I also got a used Evga 8800GT 512mb off of Craigslist for $20 today as a place holder.

The packages

So i put in the motherboard standoffs, took a picture of the green led fan and installed the aftermarket Alpine M1 cpu cooler. Look how much bigger it is then the stock one lol, makes the stock one look cute biggrin.gif And then installed the motherboard into the case.

And here it is all set up in my room for now until i have the time to hook everything up in the living room. And i love the Lynec Air mouse/Keyboard controller, it's so easy to use and just works. (Note it sitting under the monitor)
