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 :)
Good Quad Core CPU, gets the job done, runs like a vacuum cleaner with stock 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 )
pretty much the component holding back this pc's "old potential". will be replaced by a GTX 960 once prices drop....
Fan used for the push pull config. quiet, Red LED gives contrast .. IMO
