A minor refresh to my first build, Helga, before handing it off to my parents. The i5 3570K is still a very capable processor and the 16 GB of RAM will be more than enough for web browsing, managing spreadsheets, and some video projects here and there.
All parts got a cleaning and the CPU and GPU got some new thermal paste too. The power supply had 4+ years of dust caked inside it. I know your not supposed to take those things apart, but I did anyway and cleaned it out :). It now runs much quieter.
The Deepcool TESSERACT is a very nice budget case. It has tons of tool-free drive cages and has a decent amount of room behind the back panel to stuff all those cables from the non-modular power supply. It also comes with dust filters and zip ties.
So much, and so good.
Very good budget case. TONS of drive bays, and a good amount of cable management behind the motherboard.
Good, quiet fan. Cable could have been a bit longer, but other than that it works perfectly.
