Description

My friend told me to build him a PC around $350, I built this thing.

I got the i7/RAM/Mobo from tomtomj2 for a steal, the SSD/PSU from ace, the H7 from sedrosken, and bought the SSD and Case from Microcenter locally. I don't really have much of a story to tell about this PC other than I'm happy with the result and I definitely know my friend will be too.

EDIT: The 470 died so I found a RX 580 for around the same price. I returned the 470 and just threw the 580 into this PC.

It's great to see you using it, I just blew off my 2600 on ebay because I didn't want to buy a motherboard... ended up spending a lot more than that on a 2400g but still. Nice build.

Its so surprising that a CPU that is around 10 years old is still being used for actual gaming pcs in 2019.

I always have had a soft spot for buying used parts PC for a good value and still being able to game with those with solely new parts.

Heck, I did a X58 PC with a CPU from 2009. That thing still held its own especially considering it's age

X58's are such great values, probably the best value CPU's with the exception of the highway robbery prices of their motherboards.

Which one did you have out of curiosity?

Just curious about your temps for your system.... I was thinking about using this case for Home Computer Builds with an Ryzen APU, but I heard mixed feelings about the airflow.

I actually don't have a good answer for you. It seemed to do fine with temps while I built the PC.

apparently the air flow in this case is eh how do the thermals look? i get its cheap but are they acceptable?

I haven't used the PC much aside from building it and initial setup. From the time I used it it seemed pretty good for what it was.

Thanks! Sandy/Ivy has killer price to performance , especially if you have one of the 5GHz 3570Ks/3770Ks

Absolutely. I’m using a i7-4770 and there’s lots of life left. I’m not into Overclocking, I need stable and long lasting.
