Description

As usual, I was bored as hell. So I started browsing Kijiji for some deals. Came across this one, had no hard drive and a rat's nest. The girl was asking $400, but after a couple emails she said I could take it for $250. At that price, who would be dumb enough to say no. Turns out a buddy needs a cheap gaming computer, so I slapped in a 250GB HDD, cleaned up the rats nest, relocated the fans and gave it a good blast of compressed air. Re-applied thermal paste as there wasn't enough on the CPU . I also pulled 8GB's of the 16GB's it came with, buddy doesn't need that much. All said and done it cost me $250 + $25 for the HDD. The scariest thing in this computer is the Rosewill PSU. When I pulled it out I felt like I was holding a time bomb. Hopefully it lasts for a little while atleast. Computer is louder than I like, simply because there is no fan controller. I am going to look through the bios settings in a bit and try to slow them down.

Those rainbow fans, much trippy, wow so pretty.

haha, anyway though, nice build for the price, I donno if you should be to afraid of the Rosewill PSU, I don't think they're that bad, never tried them though. But the few reviews i've read wasn't that bad, wasn't worse than corsair CX430-500-600. And people still buy them just because it's Corsair.

Good job buying it.

Btw can you tell me the exact model of the rainbow fans, since i might be doing a Rainbow Rig in the near future.

This is like the third case i've seen today that has almost NO cable management options.. It's like the makers forgot to put some in

I'm surprised it didn't come with any. Mine did and they saved me from having my CM be a LOT worse than is already is..
