I had the Motherboard, CPU, Ram and GPU already, might as well make something out of it.
It works pretty good for a 8 year old CPU tbh
Assassin's Creed Odyssey runs at max detail 1080p 55 FPS AVG, not bad.
The CPU, RAM, and MoBo are not meant to last forever. He's aware that it's an old CPU, but he doesn't have a PC at all right now, so this will last him for a while until he decides to upgrade.
For an old CPU, it performs exceptionally.
It cools pretty good, but the size is ridiculous. I could only install it 1 way on my motherboard because if I was to rotate it 90 degrees the pipes would cover the ram slots 3&4. If I put the fan on the other side the fan would cover the ram slot 4.
Didn't have usb 3 header until 1.3, rip
Pleasantly surprised with this SSD, it boots windows 10 within a second of as fast as my M2 960 EVO.
Wow, I love this case. I have a H440 for my old gaming rig and this thing is built so much better.
Wireless Network Adapter
What can I say? the thing works better than my ethernet... somehow... like literally my ethernet is 28ms ping, the wireless is 16ms ping, I don't get it.
