While my friends had given me their spare case, fans, psu etc. to help me start my build, this was the only thing that I ended up using for Diamond (rest was from scratch) and it's been really awesome so far! My only concern was that it got pretty hot (72-78° C) under load depnding on the game. This worried me at first as I compared this temp reading to the other temps in my system (cpu, mobo, storage) but I searched it up and most info I found explained that this is totally standard and something I shouldn't get too concenered about. Newbie days. I run Dark Souls 3 on high at around 40-50 fps. Overwatch on high @ 60-70fps, ultra @ 40-50fps. Dota 2... maxed settings at 100-120 fps. Fun fun. Will be replacing this when I can get my hands on a GTX 1070 (or possibly the latest Radeons, 480x or 490x) Yea!
This thing is OLD, but that being said it got a fresh thermal paste application and cleaning from me. Got it working 70-80 C under load with no hiccups in ESport gaming and older titles. Just dont expect it to run witcher 3 with hairworks on.
