Description

This pc is mainly for my little brothers to game on, nothing super overdone. They picked the case, no side windows, no good fan mounting points, nothing. It works well for just gaming and web browsing, idle cpu temps are around 30-40 Degrees Celsius. Ranging from 40-50 under load. Had to mount a old 60mm fan on the HDD drive bays to get airflow to the GPU. Overall, not too shabby. Cable management is the only plus on this case as its easy as.. I'm actually surprised with this build. Its a budget rig, that runs very well. I still prefer my Xeo build but it gets the job done very nicely!

Part Reviews

CPU

Solid for the price, not recommended if you're going to be using programs that stress he cpu heavily. Handles Gaming, and web browsing very nicely.

CPU Cooler

Bit of a headache to install, but it works very nicely and keeps everything cool.

Motherboard

Bios is difficult and not my favorite. But otherwise with 3 pcie expansion slots and solid construction it is a solid mobo.

Case

Pros : Cheap, Good cable management, plenty of drive bays.

Cons : Not enough front mounting for fans. There is only one for a 120 mm. Screw stripped easily, no side window, drive bays are riveted in, comes with only 1 fan, unlabeled hardware, 1 usb 3.0 slot, overall cheap case.

It will be way faster with a rx 470 only 40 bucks more though

seen as the RX 470 is essentially a cut down 480, an FX processor could bottleneck it. not sure though, i would have to look into it a bit more, but that's the general consensus with FX processors.

wasnt wanting to spend the extra cash since i just dropped 1000 on my personal rig. It does what it needs to, speed isnt what the kid is worried about. He just wants to play recent games
