Description

I was given a box of parts that my uncle no longer wanted from his gaming pc plus I was also give some parts from my olds mans ( my dads ) mate and just put the best parts together that i could put together

I had an asrock extreme 3 motherboard with bent pins smh and some other graphic cards i think it was an r9 or r7 230 and I got a couple processors but only one had the right size for the socket of the motherboard and luckly for me it was a i5 7600.. I had more ram but they had to go in a certain order to work and i could only get 3 in and running at best no matter the order i tried... wow right? But 12 gbs is okay.

Went to my mates place after i put it together and asked if he could help me with the drivers and he ended up installing windows 10 for me, setting up the bios oh and actually i met him at his place to also get him to apply isopropyl alcohol to my old thermal paste on my cpu then he ended up applying a small pea dab of thermal paste on my cpu for me also ( if anyone wants to know the thermal paste that was used just check for the one with 240 plus likes on this website ).. i couldnt remember the temps after i just remember that i didnt win lottery but it was still pretty alright.

I gave my mate 2 x 8gb g skill ripjaws x f3 3200 ram sticks to go with his other two, a fiddy and his birthday was coming up so i got him a logitech hard mouse pad to go with his hero g501 or whatever because i noticed the **** had a wooden board for a mouse pad because he was using a glass desk smh... when mordhau came out also got us both a copy cause why not the ***** being shouting me for years haha

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing. I got this for free but I wouldnt consider upgrading for awhile.

I dont feel the need to overclock but I have mine turboboosted to 3.9 I think and I believe you can turboboost to 4.1 but I may be wrong?

This processor does well with a modded kenshi, I havent lowered or raised the enemy squad party multiplier at all from default and it only ever really drops frame rate when you are loading a town in from the distance otherwise combat with like 100 soldiers doesnt seem to affect it too notably.

I havent really being able to find a game to test the procesor on other then kenshi... battle royals definitely wont affect it.. maybe i should download an open world rpg like the witcher 3 but i believe they are videos of this processor being tested on the witcher 3 on youtube being compared to others including the over clockables, maybe if I get VR ill try it on a modded skyrim?

Streaming and uploading? I would buy and I7 if i was streaming and uploading personally otherwise I havent actually tried streaming or even uploading large files other then teamviewing files over from a google drive so I wouldnt be able to have much of an opinion but iam sure someone on youtube does... I do need to record and upload eventually seeming as I play on ggs sx santos dark rp and I want to get into arma soon but for now my only opinion is to look it up on youtube or/and buy an I7 for streaming.

CPU Cooler

I really like these... the fans are not quite though, replace them as soon as you can haha.

Motherboard

Nothing wrong with it ither then its a b250, nothing great about it. If you ae doing a budget build this will do okay.

Video Card

As far as I hace tried the latest drivers are too old to run the opening cinematic in monster hunter world but can run most games before 2018 that dont have many cinematics as far as i know.

Case

Easy to saw and drill into... I found one for $5 at tamala park!! Its actually a pretty good case in terms of space.

Case Fan

Not completely silent, does alright.

Keyboard

Its a pretty good keyboard for a non mechanical keyboard. My s key like a few others has also been worn down to an x key.

I do have a public parts list where I have listed my next upgrade, ( its more like complete remodel ).. keep in mind I too think the upgrade is abit much when all i really need is a new rx 570 graphics card and a new monitor.

After having a look I might go for two "MSI Radeon RX 570 4 GB ARMOR OC Video Cards".

I wasn't being serious, but I personally like the idea of a machine that is always in crossfire for some reason
