Update #6: Functional
- R5 3400g
- KMPKT Dynamo 360
So now the PC its self is functional and the 3400g seems to be fast enough to not bottle neck the Vega 56. I have been having some issues though. First I had to under-volt and mildly under-clock my GPU to keep from tripping over current protection on my knock off Dell 330w power brick, drawing more than 330w seems a little off for the setup but that's not the only issue, while testing the only game I currently play (Destiny 2) I constantly get error code broccoli, which I a a very vague GPU error which according to Destiny forum is caused by GPU instability with overclocking. My thoughts are that it is a transient response problem because it usually happens when the load on the System changes rapidly. I managed to fix it by running 2 power adapters, the 330w for the GPU and riser and the 120w Deskmini for the motherboard/CPU. While this works for my first pc gaming experience, it will not work for the completed project so I'm thinking of getting the HDPlex 400w AC-DC.
Now on to the little nit picky stuff:
- Functional Gamecube controller ports
- Functional Gamecube Power and Reset buttons
- Power and Drive activity lights
- Removing/relocating I/O and power connector
My solution for most of that is to make a custom pcb for the controller ports that also has the connections for the reset, power LED, and Drive activity LED.
Now all thats left is the custom cooler and modifying the GC shell to fit all the parts.
