Description

Rebuilt and sold the system for £180 inc delivery. Parts were as follows FX-4300 does the job cooled by the cheap and cheerful Zalman cooler, does a good job at staying reasonably quiet. MSI motherboard wasn't the best decision, heats up a lot even with a moderate overclock of 200mhz. Ram was value ram on Amazon, couldn't find it on ppp. WD Blue has always been a reliable drive for me. The graphics card is a Sapphire HD 7790 1GB, couldn't find that on here either. Single fan is suepr loud, even after cleaning the card and replacing thermal paste. Cable management was easy in this case, the indent made it quite obvious The CX430 does the job and have found to be reliable as well. All in all fabulous when playing rocket league and others with the same demands on a 1080p panel.

Nice cheap gamer.+1

So did you profit from the sale?

bilalnuman submitter 7 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

Not at all, the parts I have compiled over time and I sold the PC to buy a graphics card for my next build.

I understand. My sons and daughter sold things to chip in extra money before their pc builds.

Some people on here must sell organs to finance their mega pc's.

I like how you refer to the cup cooler as "cheerful"!

dartharamith 1 point 16 months ago

Gotta keep your cups cool, unless you are drinking a hot beverage. Then its a no-no.

My FX 9370 cup cooler stays nice and warm. It is not cheerful.

Definitely not the usual parts on here. What kind of upgrades are you planning?

bilalnuman submitter 7 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

none for now, this was set up to play a handful of non demanding games

Balerion! Meet my build, Meraxes. Great name - good looking budget build. Toss a cheap SSD in there. +1

The FX 4300 is still $80? It should be $60.

Anyways, not a bad system at all. :)

the motherboard was easily my biggest regret
