Description

Built as a christmas gift for a friend I really appreciate and have known for a long time. Simple gaming and basic youtube, netflix, etc. it plays better than ps3, not as good as ps4, but it's playable and he really enjoys it. Named such for it's potential to transform and for it's blacked out color scheme.

I intend to add in a blacked out gpu to vastly improve his gaming performance at some point, maybe like a 380 or something, but he really likes it as it currently is and honestly, with the lower res monitor i gave him (1600x900), he doesn't really need much more than that. I should note that the Evo 212 cooler didn't fit, and I ended up buying a Cryorig M9a that fits with the theme and performs well. Didn't do much in terms of overclocking, the integrated gpu couldn't get to 1ghz but sits around 960mhz. Not really much of a performance boost over stock tbh, so i decided to leave it at that and not mess with the cpu overclock.

Gonna give the 212 cooler to another friend who's doing a $600 build.

Not much else to say. it's not much but it's better than nothing and will likely do much better in the future. Updates to come.
