Some beckmarks below
Hi everyone! Here I am again with the first update of my peresonal rig. If you want to know the story behind this pc, feel free to check out my previous post.
Replaced the PNY geforce gt 730 for an EVGA geforce GTX 950 SC.
Replaced the Ultra LSP 750w psu for a thermaltake smart 750w (80+ bronze)
Upgraded to windows 10.
Replace case fans, especially the top one that sound like an old truck.
Add an SSD as boot drive and as storage for my favorite games.
Replace the stock cooler (that keeps my cpu surprisingly cool) for a quiter cooler that will also allow me to do some more serious overclocking.
And maybe at some point I will replace the case because it's old, damaged and cable management in this case is harder than you'd think.
Get 2x4gb ram instead of 4x2gb (what some of you recommended)
Now that I have a pc that can actually do 1080p gaming I can confidently say that I'm happy I joined the PCMR. If you have any questions feel free to leave them down below.
- The witcher 3 Wild Hunt medium/high settings 1080p: 35-50Fps
- The witcher 2 Assasins of Kings Ultra 1080p: 45-60fps
- The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Ultra 2715x1527 DSR: 60Fps
- Euro truck simulator 2 Ultra 1080p: 55-60Fps
- CSGO Maxed out 2715x1527 DSR: 60fps (Without vsync @1080p around 170fps)
- A story about my uncle Maxed out 1080p: 60Fps
Still runs like a charm, haven't experienced any bottlenecking. Stock cooler runs surprisingly cool, but is very noisy. But overall I'm very happy with it.
Good motherboard that has all the futures that I need, overclocking is easy. The bios looks ancient though.
Does what it's suppose to do.
took it wih me from my old pc, nothing to compain about.
i was very surpriced by the performance. It looks good, fit's in almost any case and doesn't get bottlenecked by my phenom ii x6.
Looks good. Top part broke after giving it a little bit of force. Cable management is much harder than I though, you can only hide the cables behind the motherboard, and when you have a non modular psu it's really hard to hide all those cables behind it. I spent at least 30 minutes trying to close the back panel while making optimal use of the available cable management feautures.
Haven't encountered any problems. runs nice and quite, nice black cables and the PSU even looks good in my case. But cable managing is terrible with a non modular PSU.
