CPU Clock Rate

3.1GHz

CPU Temperature While Idle

31.0° C

CPU Temperature Under Load

57.0° C

Description

It can run the two games that I mostly play: tf2 and pubg no problem. The temp usually stays at mid 30s or about 40 degrees Celsius during idle with the stock cooler, and max about 57 degrees Celsius during gaming. I am so happy to have this pc, and I am definitely satisfied.

+Behind story I originally bought ASRock a320m-dgs motherboard, but accidentally fried it and it was just dead. I had to buy another one (motherboard on current list) in order to put this build together. At least it is now done :)

If it’s a sleeper, when does it wake up?

Looks ok. What temp. is your PC on standby and when is it when running Team Fortress and PUBG

koreanpeterkim submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

It is in the description. But the idle temp is usually 31~40 degrees C, and max 57 during games.

Oh I skimmed on it too fast.

What case are you using?

koreanpeterkim submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Just an old case that was in my garage.

How did you fry the motherboard?

koreanpeterkim submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

I put it on the case with a styrofoam sheet, but then I tried to move it and the back of the motherboard just touched the case and powered out.

Damn. :( I bet you keep conductive materials away from your motherboard while operational ever since then.

What is your average fps on pubg

koreanpeterkim submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

About high 70, and sometimes the frame drops a lot which is at mid 40.

Wish I could see more pictures so I could say more.

Sorry for that. I will probably upload more later on.
