I'm about to start yet another concurrent project/experiment. This rig is still running on Windows 7 x64 and needs to be updated to Windows 10 Pro x64 also. While I'll be at it, I might as well do the deed and see if I could do some improvements/optimizations.

Stay tuned.

The MSI Z87I Mini-ITX motherboard is just that -- a Mini-ITX board with a very limited number of expansion slots. It's only got one albeit a PCIe 3.0 x16 which is obviously reserved for a discrete graphics card. So equally no eNVyMe...I mean M.2 NVMe SSD upgrade in this rebuild as with my recent Super Budget Conroe E6600 Rebuild. :biglaugh:

The good news is that it has RAID implementation in UEFI and has SATA III 6Gb/s ports so there's definitely room to significantly optimize the boot/system and the storage/data drives and loosen up these bottleneck points.

Inventory of old components to be recycled:

MSI Z87I Mini-ITX Motherboard

Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell Quad-Core 3.4 GHz CPU

Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600MHz RAM

Corsair Hydro Series H60 Liquid AIO CPU Cooler

Corsair CX500M 500W 80 Plus Bronze Modular PSU. Though it is still operational, the one in the old rig will not be recycled per se as it is very dirty and clogged up with dust after in continuous service for six years. I have a bunch of this PSU that I used to power ASIC miners back in the day so I'll use a fresher one in this rebuild.

Corsair Force Series GS 240GB SATA III SSD. Though it is six years old, its specs are still very current.

Western Digital WD Green 2TB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s HDD

The old Western Digital WD Green 2TB IntelliPower SATA III 6Gb/s HDD (currently full to capacity) is gonna be paired up (RAID 0) with a Seagate BarraCuda 2TB 256MB Cache SATA III 6Gb/s HDD (the same hard drives I used in my recent Budget Ryzen Build) to increase transfer rates and its capacity to 4TB.

The old Corsair Force Series GS 240GB SATA III SSD will be striped with a Patriot Burst 240GB SATA III SSD (the same SSD I used in my recent Super Budget Conroe E6600 Rebuild); again to approximately double its speed and to increase capacity of the boot/system drive to 480GB.

It's rebuit using the same case as in my recent Budget Ryzen Build, Budget Bulldozer FX-8120 Rebuild and Super Budget Conroe E6600 Rebuild...so it's pretty much the same setup. Lather, rinse, repeat.

The recycled Corsair Hydro Series H60 Liquid AIO CPU Cooler came with only one fan out of the box; added another one for a push-pull configuration to improve cooling efficiency.

The video card on it is an ASRock Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX 570 DirectX 12 8G OC 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16.
