I am currently finishing a Gaming Console Killer project bringing together the best SFF (Small Form Factor) compromises to a relatively compact footprint.

The core of this build combines a AMD Ryzen5 3400g (APU) and a ASRock x570 itx mainboard.

The main challenge seems to be keeping performance up and thermals and power consumption down.

I should have everything in place in about a week.

So far I have put together the following:
... the 3400g APU
... a 4 litre SFF itx chassis
... a PNY NvME 256gb (8gb NAND SLC) SSD
... 2 Corsair 3200mhz dual rank DDR4 rails
... a Seagate hybrid 1tb HDD hybrid drive
... a Zalman low profile heatsink

Welcome... to any helpful input in advance.

More to follow...

Most of the components have arrived. The only setback being the mobo which is out of stock (@ a reasonable price) probably until August.

For some reason SFF itx chassis are in short supply in black. I found a vendor that might be in stock by mid July.

I recently received an Asus x570-i mobo and the K39 SFF chassis. The Asus offering is critical since it is the only board that has 3gb of VRAM memory. I have combined these with an FSP Flex 300w Psu. At the end of the month I will swap out the underpowered 300w for 500w. This is important because on full load (overclocked) the CPU can go as high as 150w and the GPU as high as 300w.
