Hi, everyone. This is my desired PC.
Purpose: workstation, office, programing-arduino, compiling etc.. , music production, file archiving, and finally gaming.
Expectations : stable, quiet- stay pretty cold, fast response of OS and programs, playing Battlefield 4, enough RAM space for music libraries, and also good looking piece :).
Result: everything worked well, even it has i3 CPU , the PC is powerful according to benchmarks and everyday use experience, really low temps of most of the components, acceptable gaming performance BF4 high settings getting -40FPS , Case : only low level cable managmnet , but great for that price, lovely white design, also involves CPU and chasis fans. I have aslo installed the custom blue LED strip connected to 12V molex.
PSU: Seasonic is famous brand with 5 years warranty so is speaks for itself, really high efficiency, black sleeved cables. 430W is far from being insufficient. But unfortunatelly PSU is 6 years old.
HDD- WD black, really fast disk, read seq. speed 180 MB per second. Expensive but reliable. SSD - Intel 530 series is good choice for me. Deadly fast, during intensive writing its temp is slightly increasing.
Problems: nothing at all, maybe higher GPU temps - causing also GPU fan noise, GPU is actually bottleneck while gaming, many unused PSU cables cause obstructions- in future look for modular PSU.
NOTE: Please realize that this build was created part by part exchanging with better ones since 2014 to present. Contained 4GB RAM , HD4670 GPU, Kingston SSD now300 60GB etc, stock CPU fan... Only CPU and MOBO are original. This build is still in progress...
