Description

This is the first version of my 2nd custom PC me and my dad built this PC December 23 2015. I originally wanted an FX based PC but we settled on the I3 6100 due to having the best single core performance of it's time. this was the first PC i played Beamng Drive it played well on lowest settings it had this annoying message about the CPU not being good enough. During mid 2016 i swapped the parts into my Acer Aspire AM5700 that i had on Christmas 2016 we bought a GTX 950 FTW 2GB GPU that almost didn't fit in the Acer case. on my 17th birthday i upgraded the ram to 16GB and the CPU to an I5 6600 those parts will be featured in version 2 of this build. I used this setup until mid 2017 when win 7 started to act weird after that i swapped the MB, Case and upgraded the OS to Win 10. Last year my dad took the leftover parts and built a PC for himself but on November 28 2018 that PC was destroyed in a house fire we had my PC survived but his got destroyed. The history of this build will continue when i post V2 i wonder if i should rebuy my old black Acer case and build that one with a Ryzen i might have leftover from my current PC? Also i unfortunately don't have any photos of it when i first built it but i do have pics of when i put parts in the Acer. I hope you all like it.

If anyone is wondering the background i had at the time was a picture of a character from My Little Pony. one of my interests at the time and to this day the other pony was my first pony Original character Red Diamond. This PC was my first Acer rebuild but i have a much nicer build nowadays but i still miss this old build sometimes.

Use ur Intel hd530 instead of that gt610. Hd530 is like 200% better. 😆

I know it's weird but at the time my dad thought the I3 didn't have integrated graphics so he bought a cheap GPU to put in there i later on upgraded it to a GTX 950 on Christmas that year. If i still had this PC i would do bunch of changes to it first i would put an SSD in it while i was doing that i would upgrade it to Win 10 because the copy of 7 i had on it acted weird for no reason and it got me so angry i ended up swapping the parts on to a new board to see if that fixed it and it did. i would also swap out the GPU again because the GTX 950 quit on me a year or two later for no reason. i think my 2nd custom was plagued by poor research and not having a proper upgrade path or plan like i have with my new silver one. i would say that i would not recommend the Skylake Intel in 2019 there are better value for the money Platforms these days like the AMD RYZEN.

The thermaltake case was a temporary case for this build until i swapped parts in the old black Acer case shown in the pictures and i didn't have any pics of the Thermaltake case. Thanks for asking i forgot to mention it in the description.
