If you replace all the pieces of wood in a ship one-by-one is it still the same ship? Well, if you replace all the parts in a PC one-by-one is it still the same PC? I have a question for you, did I upgrade my old PC or did I salvage parts out of it and used them in this build? ANYWAYS, heres my PC I built, I use it Primarily for gaming, and emulators but I sometimes edit videos and such. I had a old PC told myself, "hey, it has an i3 3240, thats not bad, I could through in a 750ti and have a very modest gaming computer," and slowly talked myself into buying more parts...Better CPU for Arma3...4GB simply isnt enough anymore...1050ti is just such good value....a new PSU to power it and (ect.) And now I have this and I dont regret any of it. The cable management isnt that good, but I blame it on the PSU. Ill have more information in my part reviews. Happy New Years!!!!
I got this for 70$ off Ebay Used, swapped the i3-3240 that came in the PC with it, It works GREAT especially for the price, I mainly got this for Arma III and BeamNg Drive, as their much more CPU intensive games!
This works great, the stock(not even a stock intel cooler, some cheap sketchy one) cooler in the PC was TERRIBLE im talking 50c at IDLE and at load as much as 80c! Now I get around 20-30 idle and anywhere from 50-60 on load, over all, good bang-for-buck if you need a cheap cooler, especially since my CPU and MOBO cant even overclock. It also gets a little bit loud at full load but my old cooler sounded like that 24/7!
This isnt the EXACT board I got out of the old PC but its very close, it works fine, no issues, obviously no OC or anything but it solid. And mine was free since it was in the old PC. So I cant complain.
Bought used for 30$ of Ebay, works GREAT, had to make sure the timings matched my old PCs RAM stick(9-9-9-24) and voltage(1.5v) it paired perfectly with the old RAM.
This came with old PC so it was free, I just looked up the timings and voltage online so I could mix the RAM for a total of 12GB of ram, it was free too! Works good
I was kinda surprised when I saw the old PC came with two of these, I have NO idea how old they are and for that, will be getting an SSD and maybe a new 1TB HDD next year. But these work good, havent had any problems.
This works great, ALTHOUGH. I thought I was gonna spend more than I actually did and had around 25$ left, so I would of spent that on a RX 470, which I recommend to anyone with a little more to spare, but thats not to say this isnt worth it, great band for buck!
Got this off amazon for 35$ and its awesome, plenty of room, looks nice, 2 fans included, and it has good cable management (that I didnt use to its full potential) and made working with this PSU a little more bearable.
This was the worst part of the build, DONT cheap out on PSU's, it works though...but thats it, it has no sleeves, looks ugly, and I had to figure out that my board had this had a 8pin ATX12v connector that your suppose you only plug in half if your mobo uses a 4pin ATX12v connection near the CPU, I do not know why I didnt spend 5$ more and got the 430w 80+ variant. My bad.
