Description

Originally built back in 2011, made a few upgrades recently including a new HDD and CPU cooler using push pull fans.

Used mainly for AutoCad and occasional gaming. Runs CSGO, NBA 2k14, Metro, Rage and BF3 with no problems. High to medium settings except for Metro ( low to medium ) all in 1280x1024.

Maximizing this PC before upgrading to Team Blue .... maybe a GTX 960 for a last major upgrade ...

PS: I'll change the ****** PSU as soon as I get funds :)

Part Reviews

CPU

Good Quad Core CPU, gets the job done, runs like a vacuum cleaner with stock cooler

CPU Cooler

Just installed this CPU cooler, temps stay low and is very quiet. (Using a push pull config) Temps stay at 40 at idle and 50 when gaming. Pretty good considering the ambient temp here in the philippines.... ( 35 on a nice day )

Video Card

pretty much the component holding back this pc's "old potential". will be replaced by a GTX 960 once prices drop....

Case Fan

Fan used for the push pull config. quiet, Red LED gives contrast .. IMO

Would be cool if the LED's pulsed. I like them though.

I had the Phenom II X4 965, great CPU, works just as well as the FX 8350 for a lot of games.

Holy ****, that cooler and its LEDs... When you get your 960, I'd recommend getting another 4GB stick of ram.

PSU looks explosive, get another stick of RAM with the GPU upgrade, it's super cheap as of recently. Looks pretty, love the cooler.

The cooler reminds me of Portal for some reason.
