Description

This is the computer that I built for my senior project for high school. I'm also going to take it to college with me when I go. I tried to build it on a budget but I still wanted it to be able to play games and do other stuff. Don't mind the Intel fan right now. I'm ordering a new one shortly. I can't do anything on this computer yet because the CPU gets too hot. Almost 80°C when playing Minecraft. (CPU heavy game)

That PSU is pretty bad. I'd look to replace it in the future.

Getting close to 80c is normal for this CPU under load on the stock cooler. It is perfectly safe under 80c.

Hey I have a question. So, I'm in a similar situation as you. I'm a senior in high school too and I also plan on building a small, tiny computer so that I can bring it with me to college. Our builds are almost identical. I plan on getting the Corsair 250D and I'm wondering how heavy your computer is all together because I know my current computer is roughly about 40 pounds. Maybe even more.

I'm just wondering how heavy your computer is approximately so that I can prepare myself for how heavy mine might be.

The Computer weighs about 15 or 20 pounds. Rather lightweight. For a computer anyway.
