Description

This used to be my workhorse PC , but due to its limitations (RAM) , it has been superseded by a Skylake build . This is a modification of my previous version , Old Faithful . The main changes include the OS change from openSUSE/Puppy Linux to Ubuntu 15.10 . The other OS'es listed are from each HDD - each other than the WD is recovered from some OS corrupted PC 's , so they still have most of the OS on them . My CPU runs abnormally hot , probably because of the lack of case fans . This was simply modified by me , it was originally built by somebody else and I inherited it .

CPU - This CPU is a champ! Runs nicely and still keeps up with newer CPU's . Love it , although dual-core isn't enough anymore .

MOBO - Mobo is OK . The BIOS is really old , and filled with technical jargon . The GPU is also OK .... but at $100(that's how much it costed originally ) it's great!

RAM - RAM is RAM , although 1GB is really low . So I'm getting 4GB soon .

PSU - I know it's hell low quality , but since this is ultra-low power , who cares . It hasn't gone up in flames till now .

CASE - Horrible . No cable management and sharp edges . Would NEVER recommend this .

So , that's my build ! Thanks for reading

"My CPU runs abnormally hot" Take that heatsink off and clean it that should fix your problem. That cpu cooler is basically useless how you have it.
