Description

Hi folks.

This is a build I decided to do to raise money for two charities close to my heart in the UK. Cancer Research UK & Mind Mental Health Charity.

A lot of the parts were purchased with my own money, the cpu cooler and PSU were kindly donated by a friend, other friends, family and 3 local business donated money to help make the build possible.

You may ask why Windows 10 Pro, I already had a license kicking about so I decided to use that instead of purchasing another OS.

The 3D printed headphone stand was done by a friend after finding a free file online.

The two front fans were purchased VERY cheap, they are very quiet and put out a lovely amount of air, I find the standard fans in this case are terrible.

People are purchasing tickets and all proceeds are going to be split between the two charities.

Both the CPU and GPU have overclocked profiles stored, they were rigorously stress tested and proved to give a nice little bump in performance. From memory its 4.5ghz on the cpu, I'll have to pull up the gpu figures.

If you've any questions regarding the build please let me know.

Great build! It's really cool that you're doing this for charity! Maybe you should put a link or something in so people can enter. I don't live in the UK, but a lot of users do and everybody wants a good pc for cheap. +1.
