Details

CPU Clock Rate

3.9GHz

Description

Used for web surfing, light flash gaming, word processing. Bought all of it at Microcenter, some pieces as a bundle (like the motherboard/ processor for example) hence the 6600K on a build like this.

Warning to anyone even slightly interested in this case, it has practically ZERO cable management space besides in and on the side of the HDD/ ODD bays<<. Other than that, no space (including behind the mobo tray). Of course, I knew all of this going in and got a great price on it, and managed to make it look bearable.

It has one 120mm as intake (hidden in the picture between the case mesh and plastic front of the case) and one 120mm outtake. Yes the ODD isn't connected, I had no use for it besides installing the OS (which I could have used a flash drive for) but I may need it some day to install something else, who knows.

For $400, that's one solid web surfer and word processor!

nice build although a higher speed and a 4GB kit would have been a better choice i think. surfing doesnt use that much ram

TheInfamousR submitter 3 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

You make a good point, but it was on sale for quite a decent price.

yeah 1st rule of APUs: use atleast 1866Mhz rams

PickItApart 3 points 20 months ago

for gaming, yes you want higher RAM for APUs. For parents use...they don't need it.

+1 Pic, -1 Nuke for not reading the planned usage of this PC...

Nukelear -2 points 20 months ago

but he can get faster rams for the same price, his parents wont need 8gb rams too.

PickItApart 1 point 20 months ago

prices fluctuate a lot. However, for parents needs any cheap 8GB is good enough.

If it isn't too inconvinient to you, can you measure the distance between the side grills to the back of the case. I want to know because I want to know if I can install a h80i in a pysh-pull configuration as well as two fans on the side grills....

where can I get win 7 OS for $20? or am I missing something?

could have stayed with the A10-6600K if it's a simple surferer, but still good build.
