Description

So I have a computer I keep at a family member's house that I visit every day and I recently got a new case and CPU cooler for it. The CPU and GPU are not overclocked and the ram I have in the machine when I bought it was clocked at 1866mhz and is running at 1866mhz not 1600mhz. The name of the build is called Arctic Wolf.

The monitor is a Acer x203w 1680x1050 60hz 5ms LCD display, the keyboard is a generic USB backlit keyboard, and the mouse is a Sharkk branded wired optical gaming mouse. I currently have no speakers for the build and am currently looking for some for now I'm just using my earbuds for sound.

Part Reviews

CPU

A decent little APU I got it second hand from a friend and it works great runs a bit hot when editing and rendering videos but thats easy to solve with a good aftermarket CPU cooler

Motherboard

I got this second hand from a friend with a AMD A8 7650k and it works great it doesn't have too many PCI express slots but enough for a GPU and has a PCI slot which I use for a wireless card

Memory

Works great I have mine clocked at 1866mhz and it works great for editing videos

Storage

Bought this used for a boot drive from amazon didn't have too many hours of usage when I got it and works fine

Storage

Bought this as a storage drive for games and other files and works great

Video Card

Got this for $50 very lightly used from a friend and it works great

Case

Just bought this a few days ago and it works great is very roomy, has a ton of hard drive bays and has decent cable management

Power Supply

Got this on amazon it works great and powers my system with no problems

Operating System

Good OS but dear Windows it has a ton of tracking and spying from Microsoft

Case Fan

It's a fan, has LEDs, blows air nothing much more I had it for almost a year and a half now and it still works I only wish it was a 4 pin PWM fan

Monitor

A old monitor I had for ages it still works great and is very reliable

Thanks I really took my time building this and since I didn't cheap out buying a $30 case it really paid off with it looking really good

I literally just got the 210 and moved that build over to it its a really really nice case for the price and you can't go wrong with the metal thickness plus all those drive bays I'm actually considering using it for a server if I ever build one in the future because of all the drive bays

The 650ti still rocks it runs most of my games on high settings even though the GPU is about 3 years old
