Upgrading from a old PC Specialist pre-built, that was filled with dust and stupidly slow. Pictures shown are in my room, and not in his setup. I believe it had a 4th generation i3, with a GTX 650, 8GB DDR3 and a 1TB hard drive that was always at 100% use...

I guess he couldn't wait and started unpacking his components, and when un-boxing the CPU He had bent pins on his Ryzen 5 CPU, and the pre-applied thermal paste was smudged on the cooler. Luckily I was able to bend the pins back which took ages, and was stupidly stressful. Luckily I was able to bend them enough it was able to fit back into the socket, and cleaned off and replaced the thermal paste with MX-4. Unfortunately the day I left another issue arouse, which was the SSD magically appearing and disappearing, so we are going to send that back and source a replacement.

Nice little desktop, in a small form factor. Jake is enjoying his new and improved gaming experience.

Photos, specs and information up to date as of build date.

Thanks! That's good and interesting. Because it looks as if there is not enough space between PSU and the video card for the air intake of GPU cooler.

But I guess, it doesn't really mater for a 120W video card.
