Description

Built this at beginning of 2017. I decided to post it now since I had to take it out for GPU upgrade. Went from HD 6870 to gtx 1060 3gb.

Yes, it's under the table.

Built this in 8th grade.

Part Reviews

CPU

Go to CPU at that time. I like it. Haven't gotten chance to OC.

CPU Cooler

Generic 120mm AIO. Works.

Motherboard

Motherboard w/ NVMe support. It works so why not.

Memory

Can't got wrong with 16GB of DDR4-3200. Back when you could get 16GB for what 8GB costs now. And with really nice speeds.

Storage

NVMe SSD. Made boot times SOOO much faster. Came from old HDD.

Storage

Mass storage drive. Got a portable 5 TD WD drive and took it apart to get the HDD. The big portable drives are just a 3.5" drive in a housing and has a sata to barrel jack + usb thingy.

Video Card

Pulled a GTX 1060 3GB from a dell pc. Exact model isn't here.

Power Supply

Couldn't find the 600 watt version of this. It's a power supply that works. No problem with it.

Case Fan

Case fan that works + looks nice.

Case Fan

Case fan that works + looks nice.

Monitor

Nice 16:10 monitors.

Keyboard

Nice keyboard. RGB and again, it works.

Headphones

Could have been better. I feel like it doesn't clamp enough sometimes and slides around too easily. Sometimes.

Yes it might be an OEM card, but I dont know why but I really like the way it looks

That 1060 surely is an OEM card.

It is. My dad (who gave it to me) said it was a Dell OEM 1060. At least it runs fortnite br at stable 60 fps on epic settings. (I have it capped at 60 since my monitors are only 60hz)

Damn, I wish I got a free 1060

You might find the game smoother running around 80-100fps. Even on 60hz, just feels nicer

I didn't know that. I thought keeping it synced with monitor would be smoothest frames but that's cool.

Also, it nice to find another highscvhooler who hates miners :p.

That PSU is pretty trash. Poor ripple control and can't even do its rated 500 watts. This was back when it's released five years ago. Today, it's not something I would use. I would not overclock your system with that PSU in there.

Does it help it's actually 600 watts?... :p. IK I should probally upgrade it but I dont have a demand for it yet. I won't oc it unless it's just a tiny OC to mess around.

poor ripple control reduces the lifespan of your hardware. And even if you have the 600w model, it still cannot likely make 500 watts. It's pretty garbage.

this PSU would be a worthwhile investment.

If I do, I would rather wait for a sale on the seasonic 620 watt 80+ gold one. I got it for my friend's build for $45. The 450 watt PSUs overall are considered pretty sketchy too though.

No.

The CX450M is an exceptional PSU. It's actually the best 50$ PSU.

That SeaSonic 620 watt is eight years old and is no longer good for modern computers. It lacks certain protections and its build quality and performance is not up to modern day standards.

You don't have to be rude about his hardware. And I would not use any budget corsair psu. Many of them in my experience have had faulty fans or whining. Get yourself an evga.
