Have Everything: NAS, Home Theater and Gaming Smooshed Into One PC


So you want a NAS box (ASUStor?), Home Theater (Nexus Player).. PC (VivoPC?) but as gamers we also want to chill on the couch and play big titles like Minecraft, DOTA 2 or Civilization V/Beyond Earth on a big screen with a keyboard and mouse (so, GR8). But you don’t want separate devices each requiring a plug and idle power: it has to be a combination. That’s a big ask, but we decided to take on the challenge and build a ‘HT-Gaming-NAS-PC’ that covers everything.

This DIY guide covers component selection, building, AI Suite III and Fan Xpert software setup, overclocking and performance results in games.
