Description

Now i bought these prices in crypto-currency times, so i really paid around 900-1000 but who cares, that was in the past. I had a few problems with RAM, and just pushed the PC to the side as I didn't have money to fix it.

Now i have it working, it works perfectly. I use this for a light gaming rig (CS:GO only lol) and my YouTube watcher. I've overclocked this to 4.0 GHz (risky with this APU, i know) and it runs really well. Right now i'm using 12GB of RAM as one stick has died and i'm getting it replaced. The RAM has been OC'd to 2667 MHz, which runs really well for me.

No problems so far with the build apart from RAM, and i'm planning to put a 1050 Ti in soon. Also sorry for the trash quality pics, my phone isn't the best.

Part Reviews

CPU

It's a monster for the price, runs really well.

Motherboard

I really recommend this board for anyone who wants a cheap board, it's really easy to overclock parts as well with this thing.

Memory

One came faulty out of the box, only bought it because it was the cheapest at the time. It's pretty good other than that.

Storage

Starts up my PC in 10 seconds so no complaints.

Case

Now the cable management is dog wiener as the photos show, but it was a cheap case, and well made for how much it costs. Would recommend.

That's rough, I remember how nasty the crypto craze was during that time. Honestly should have sold my GPU to some wack miner and go back to a lower card I have laying around. When I first built was in 2014 and the prices were still settling from the craze back then. Lets just say I overpaid on ram and the GPU but I got a cheap CPU mobo combo so I feel the pinch situation. I do think you need to spruce up your cable management. Nice job on the overclock.

thanks bro, the cable management does need to be cleaned up a bit, i can pull out the other hard drive holders and throw some of the cords in there because this case looks big but in reality its actually tiny. It's a disappointment how much i paid for the RAM and for one of them to be faulty. I might just buy a new kit as i'd have to send the whole kit to Taiwan from Australia, and shipping is so expensive over here.

Aw damn that's rough. I'm sure you could just buy a single module replacement and save some $

that's a really good idea, will a similar 4gb 2133 MHz stick of RAM work with the others?

I'm not too sure, but I'm sure you can find a stick with the same speed and timings and it would work for sure

I'd imagine that GPU prices were very inflated at the time

Yeah, very glad that I decided I wanted to build a computer a couple months after that ended (never heard of it till I came back and people were still talking about it). If I were you I'd try to get like a 1060 or something now that the prices are better

If I can, I'll get a 1060 6GB, I've heard they're good and not too expensive either

did you not read it, i OC'd the RAM first of all, i bought it because it was the cheapest at the time ($260), and SSD's and RAM went up in price during cryptocurrency

So right now those parts cost 800, the SSD was 50 more than it was now (850) and ram is an extra 120 (970) and the processor was 249 instead of 220 (999)

Do you understand yet?
