I don't cringe at the build. i love it but i sure do cringe at the pic quality lol
luv the oldie i7s i got one too!
oh yes it is. its from an old gateway machine.
awesome build yet again! i don't always comment but i always look at your builds. Also i was wondering if you know any good lga1156 overclocking motherboards. It has to be micro atx, need 4 ram slots. I bought a biostar th55b off ebay from the only US seller because i don't want to wait 3 weeks.. i got it and when i put it in the system it didn't work so i got my money back. I really want to overclock my 860 now that i have a 240 aio and a case with really good airflow.
should have went with a case that is cheaper. could have gotten better parts by doing that. Also for a build like that the psu is a bit overkill, could have gone with a 450 watt 80+ bronze for about half the price
Yeah I know man, the computer was a gift from cousin and parents cuz my cousin had it laying around originally with cpu mobo and psu, it is actually one of the old gateway fx systems originally with a hd 5770, but I don't think it would be worth it to upgrade to x3440. If I did upgrade my cpu I would upgrade a few gens. Btw dude I love all your builds, I really love what you are doing. Thank you for the feedback
That sucks dude, I'm pretty sure i got this computer after that and i know it wasn't used and only had a psu cpu and mobo because my cousin had it around but never used it
I love to see that many other people still notice older parts for still performing well, thanks man!
Hell yeah i agree! Thank you
Cool bro, thank you!
thats a badass mobo. you know its good when it has 2 vrm fans
hows that ssd? im thinking of getting the 120 gb version and i have heard it is not up to the speeds that it says
DUDE we have like the same thing, what model is ur gateway?
oh jeez that cpu probably don't go over 5% lol
yea dude that cable management is great never see anything better
and also, does the case have decent airflow?
hows the case? i think im gonna get one. Do you think it would fit one of the single fan radiator aios? cuz its either i go with the hyper 212 or the aio if it can fit
also, how do you like that liquid cooler. i think im gonna get one cuz i have to get a new mobo and case, old case is proprietary cuz its a gateway but i wanna stretch my 860 out to 4ghz.
dude i use an i7 860 which i think is a little better than that 920, but you are using an 8 gig card. how much does that bottleneck cuz im trying to upgrade to a 1060 6gb. also you have had that 5850 take a ****? i wonder if somethings up with those cuz i had a 5850 take a **** too. i mean that card is from 2009 and its probably been beat to death so that may be it as well.
great to see an old build... in my opinion its more interesting because the completed builds are just an mud pool of new high end systems. Great to see it, great build!
gotta love the old stuff. i use a 7850 core edition. still great stuff especially for a budget
my school can't even afford this lol
LOL that is really creative i have never seen someone do that! 165 bucks for a headphone stand now thats what i call all out.
great story lol. When you gonna run out of those 30 i5s? lol
i say you should pick up a ryzen 3 1200 with an overclockable mobo, and ddr4 ram great budget cpu and you have a lot of headroom for future upgrades. Yea.... the cable management it looks like a dell optiplex that got drug out of the dumpster behind the local walmart. But i'm guessing that this case has an extreme lack of cable management room so maybe pick up a new one too. Then again it doesn't have a side panel window so its not the biggest deal.
everytime from you it is an i5 750 or 750s lol, love the first gen cpus, you must have alot of those. I still use an i7 860 with a 7850 core edition, still runs games like a boss. Keep up the great work!
haven't seen a core2quad in awhile, interesting. whats that card? is that some special wrap or does it come that way
wow the most no point of a gpu made, lol. but dude that looks really good, great job!
That looks great! Even down to the cable management, you did a great job. That thing is a beast i bet i could snap my fingers and it would be booted into windows.
The 2gb 5850......... the one i wished i had. I had a nightmare.... one of the worst days of my life... with the 1gb xfx reference blower style... i home from school exited to play some gta. who wouldn't be? About 20 minutes into gameplay my computer locks up so all i can do is power it down. After multiple tries it would not post so i took the panel off to see if theres and issue, and i also take out the graphics card and after i put it back in, WALA it posted and booted to windows. Then late in the night it crashed again but this time nothing worked so i let it cool off overnight in case it was a overheating issue, and in the morning it took many tries to post so my savior of a cousin came and brought me my current card. A radeon hd 7850 core edition THAT THING IS A SCREAMER lol. Great job keeping this oldie alive, thats also what i'm trying to do with my i7 860.
Where did you pick up that mobo? i'm really looking for a cheap decent one that can overclock because i use an i7 860, and the pc is an old prebuilt so its a generic non-overclockable mobo, i'm trying to keep this 860 running at its full potential and great for at least another 5 years.
4 ghz? damn i need to get a new mobo so i can do that to mine!
Very interesting, still is a great budget option today if you´re willing to get used parts. I still use an i7 860 8 gigs of ddr3 and a radeon hd7850 core edition. It is an old gateway prebuilt, (originally had a radeon hd 5850 but it took a crap), but anyway i love to see old interesting builds , so thanks for helping keeping it fresh because i just scroll through and all i really see is 8700ks and gtx 1080tis.
great name choice! lol i´m honestly surprised by those temps knowing how hot these new cpus from intel get
your grandma really needs that? i´m jealous
them ryzens a sure a good price for performance, turn that flash of and maybe add some benchmarks.
i wish i could have that lol, maybe you could update it with some benchmarks?
Yea man great chips! even still to this day!
in terms of benchmarks, it runs gta five at about 60 fps, fortnite at about 70 with the occasional drop, rocket league at 60
its not a biostar motherboard, it is just the regular old gateway one, its a gateway prebuilt with some mods
doesn't the card bottleneck the cpu?
