Description

Had all the parts laying around, so just went ahead and built it. Cable management wasn’t that hard. I might want to upgrade to a 3rd gen i7 and some more ram, but I’m trying to sell this build. How much would I sell it for? Thanks for reading!

Part Reviews

CPU

I mean, it runs at 3.2 GHz and can run pretty well without stuttering.

CPU Cooler

Took a bit to install, but runs really cool! Like 47 C on stress test

Motherboard

I went overkill on the board, I know, it has just enough fan headers so that’s great. I might upgrade to better ram though.

Memory

It runs, I attached some rgb on it and it looks pretty slick.

Storage

I’ve order about 3 of these, perfect, runs fast. They could angle the stats ports but nobody does that...

Storage

It runs, quiet, and fast, nothing else.

Video Card

The beast of the build, runs fort nite at 125 FPS on max.

Case

The back panel is a 2 person job, cable management could be better, it scratched easily.

Power Supply

Good cables, never had problems, easy to install.

I say you gotta buy a I7 (3770/2600). the 2400 will hold it back and then you cant really flaunt any high fps for your customers with such a low end cpu. Also, buy 8gb of ram for like 25 bucks for a better overall computer experience.

its a nice little budget build, however i have one recommendation, flip the cpu fan to the other side of the heatsink. Unless its sucking air through the heatsink most fans come configued to push air through the heatsink so unless you flipped the fan its fighting with your exhaust fan, not saying its going to make a mountain of difference for temperatures, but it might make the exhaust and cpu cooler run at lower rpm's so they are not fighting with each other.

I'd actually flip the rear fan as it appears to be an intake? Should be exhaust fan... As well as put the cpu cooler fan on the front side blowing back as it should be a pressure optimized fan, as you stated doing. Other wise looks great!

good catch i didnt see that. yea flip that to be an exhaust fan and flip the cpu cooling fan to push air through the cooler towards the rear fan.

Thanks for your guys’ advice and input. The rear fan in exhaust, it just looks like intake. Responding to @TShaw13, I can’t flip the cpu fan because the ram got in the way :/

Ohhhhh that makes sense looking at it now, that is a thick cooler and fan. As long as your temps aren't crazy high it shouldn't be an issue.

And sweet! Just watching out for proper airflow, drives me nuts bringing in unfiltered air (not through dust filters).

Tbh if I knew anything about PC's as a craigslist buyer I would never buy this because the CPU is too old. I would honestly sell that as a separate budget pc and do something else with the 1070.

I guess I would consider buying it if I could make more reselling them myself as I just explained to you.

the i5-2400 is still fine for gaming. its just slightly behind a ryzen 3 1200 for multithread and even for single thread its about the same. i would happily recomend a system with a ryzen 3 1200 for gaming (not upgrade later gaming but gaming in general)

As would I, since there's an actual upgrade path for the 1200. There is a market of people who are okay with really old hardware, I just am not one of them.

you can eventually upgrade to an i7-2600 or a xeon e-1230 (they are cheaper then an i7-2600 being that they are a 45 dollar chip) and by the time the i5-2400 is irrelavent that should be an even cheaper upgrade, and when the i7-2600 becomes irrelavent for gaming there will be a new cheap platform that will be fine for a while.

Nice build. Can't go wrong with S340.

It looks better than it is...

Oh, now I see it. Very disappointed when I saw the part list. +1 for the LOL.

You probably could've purchased a similar board for half the price and put that extra chunk of change into the CPU...just my thought. Still a good build!

Yep I went overkill on the mobo...

well in order to know how much to charge i would have to know the pricing of how much the parts costed. an i5-2400 is a 30 dollar chip, cpu cooler as you outlined is 18 dollars, i dont think you can get even close of 200 dollars for that board, its an lga1155 board, the value proposition with an i5-2400 just isnt there tops i would value the board at 100 dollars in a build (different if you are selling the board by itself but we arent so here we are), 8gb of ram is 20 like how it is outlined, 20 dollar ssd sounds right, the hard drive isnt worth 33 dollars (used 1tb hard drives are worth 20) at best i would value it at 10 dollars in this build. I would value the 1070 at 220 dollars (lowest buy it now price on ebay for a working card that isnt a scam. used cases are hardly worth anything (not me trying to lowball you, so lets say 50 dollars for that setup (because used cases go for WAY less then brand new) psu is a rosewill which doesnt have great resale (so 25 dollars if its used) so lets add up how much that is 475. now i reccomend a markup of about 30 percent so 475x 1.3 so i would reccomend a selling price of 617.50 but for sake of ease just do 620. Not sure if you mentioned a windows key or not, but that would add an additional 15 to 20 dollars of value to the computer, but wouldnt change the price. go for 620 OBO

I was thinking of 650, but I’ll take you your advice, thanks! The PSU and GPU are both new...

thats fine and its reasonable, its just that you know its a new psu, but whoever is buying it is going to assume used. to them it isnt brand new. 650 is a reasonable price. I just wanted to give the reasoning of my method. if you want to attempt 650 obo thats fine too. Depends how many other sellers are in the area. I was assuming aggressive competition if there arent a lot of sellers in your area you might be able to get that
