Core i5 6600K Micro ATX Build & Home Automation
#1
The Core 2 Duo was getting long in the tooth, and with us receiving orders to move to Camp Humphreys, Korea I decided it was time to shed a little weight - while I liked the Silverstone LC17B, it was heftier than I needed. It was fun building a PC again, it's been a few years. So far I haven't overclocked it yet, will probably get to that this weekend.

The new build (reusing GPU and SSD from the old one)

The kitchen "computer" - Tronsmart MK908II. Mostly used for recipes\etc., but can also stream off the HTPC for TV Shows\Movies.

Alexa - she's very convenient. "Alexa, turn on the family room" etc. Now if only I could tie her into Kodi. "Alexa, play 'Inside Out' please" would be AWESOME.

Very cool! Always wanted a tablet on the wall.

What are you using for Recipes? I always thought about doing a metadata site for that.

Not a skin, just the Windows wallpaper. But, my favorite skin is definitely Cirrus Extended. Big Grin
