Description

This is my other desktop.

I know the picture isn't accurate, but that's because I have the following parts in the computer still:

  • Intel Core i3-4130
  • Dead GIGABYTE H87N-WIFI
  • Intel stock cooler

The GPU temperatures are from when I ran the 280x in my HAF X.

About this build

This build was made for my brother, but then he went back to his XBOX. I then made this into a PC that is as ghetto as possible.

  • I have a 3.5" HDD not even mounted.
  • I've been trying to disassemble it with nothing but paperclips and debit cards.
  • I'm putting a full-sized ATX PSU into a case that only supports SFX.
  • The cooler will be mounted with paper clips since I lost the mount.
  • I don't have anything but the motherboard properly screwed in.

How I use the computer

I use this desktop for everything. Homework, playing games, testing, rendering, video editing, and photo editing. The main games I play are as follow:

  • Skyrim (modded)
  • Battlefield 4
  • American Truck Simulator
  • Euro Truck Simulator 2
  • The Witcher II
  • The Witcher III
  • GTA V
  • Far Cry 4
  • Far Cry 3
  • Fallout 3
  • Geometry Dash

Part Reviews

CPU

It's already an instant 5 stars because it's AMD.

Motherboard

Pros:

  • Has built-in Wifi
  • It's A88X
  • 6 USB ports!

Cons:

  • The CPU header is in a stupid place.
  • I don't really like the BIOS
  • I also don't like how the PS/2 mouse and keyboard are merged, but oh well.

Memory

Pros:

  • It's Kingston
  • Sexy
  • DDR3L

Cons:

  • I cannot overclock this ****. Even my friend couldn't.

Case

Pros:

  • Small
  • Looks really nice from the outside
  • Supports a good amount of fans for its size
  • You can fit an ATX PSU in it, even though it doesn't say it's compatible.
  • It actually can hold my giant 280x.

Cons:

  • The cable management is ***.
  • Requires a lot of screws in a lot of places.
  • So damn cheaply build. The front panel connectors are literally hot glued to the panel.

Power Supply

Pros:

  • Looks nice
  • Semi-modular is love
  • Black/red are my two favorite colors.
  • Seasonic!

Cons:

  • It's overpriced now but why would I care about that?
