Just a nice small and cheap build with good performance. Most of the parts were bought while on sale which made for a nice cheap work and music pc.
Im impressed by the case, for £32 it did the job well with good cable management for such a small case. Great airflow too. I had a GTX 770 and a 1tb HDD laying around from other builds. Motherboard wise I didnt need anything more then a H110 so that was nice and cheap. Micro atx was the obvious choice. The CPU cooler does a surprisingly good job for £8(cex doesnt provide a cooler), ive tuned the fans so you cant hear a thing other than the mechanical HDD. This pc runs 10 degrees cooler than my 6700k. I added a small £1 pci slot fan controller in the back.
I will not really be using this for gaming but I tested it out with witcher 3 and at 1080p I was getting 50+ fps mostly on ultra (no hair works). Ill probably only use it for D3 anyway which isnt demanding.
Heres a rough idea of some of the deals I got.
The CPU (i5-6500) was from cex for £125, The RAM (16gb ballistix ddr4) was from amazon for £66, The SSD (ultra II 240gb) was from amazon for £66
Overall im happy with the build and the thing flies in the programs I use (FLStudio, photoshop, chrome etc).
Got this from cex 2nd hand for £125 which was a steal. Great little chip, fast and handles the games ive tried well. If your not getting a skylake K processor then this is your best option imo.
As my cpu didnt come with a cooler I needed something for my i5-6500, this was perfect. Keeps my chip nice and cool and ive tuned the fans to be silent unless under heavy load. For the price I think this is a great option if you dont have a K processor and need a cooler.
Does the job. Not much else to say, works as intended.
Got this for cheap and have no problems with them.
Good performance. SSD is a must these days for primary boot drive.
Surprisingly good case for the money. The HDD cage is removable and there's quite a lot of space behind the mother board tray and below the CD ROM bay which is fully covered so you can't really see any cables. The bulges in the side panel make it easy to cram cables behind too. Obviously it's a bit flimsy but there are no sharp edges.
