Description

I built this for use of like general games and school and stuff. This was my first build so I was kinda worried but everything worked out in the end and I have this beautiful PC now and i'm very happy. lol. The only problem I had was the blue led fan in the front of the elite 430 had too short of a cable so I had to use a fan cable splitter so I could use the fan because it is original and beautiful. Loving the GTX 1060 3gb SC I got it for like $60 off retail brand new (it was on sale) and this thing is a beast for the price. Pretty much runs anything I throw at it which is great compared to my old Sparkle Nvidia GT520. This was a prebuilt PC but mostly everything has been replaced even the power supply. Its old specs were Intel i3-2100, I had installed 8gb of ddr3 ram, Sparkle Nvidia GT520 and some kind of asrock mb but this was back when I had no idea how PC's worked so when the first mb broke I didn't know how to fix it (I don't know how it broke I hadn't used the PC for months and when I turned it on it didn't go any further than the windows logo so I had the Asrock mb installed by my moms boyfriend). Most of this stuff was from my (awesome) brother including the: Keyboard, Mouse, Mousepad and monitor. Anyways I love my computer and its gonna be my baby for atleast a couple years (or until I decide to build a overclockable PC) .

Okay so try and think of it as a locked door okay? the lock is indestructible and unpick able unless you are the very best at it. My CPU is a locked cpu hence why its an i3-8100. if your looking for something to overclock search for K processors like i3-8350K or i5-8600K. also look for Z chipset motherboards that support overclocking. Im not overclocking anything so i didnt build a pc for it or buy a cpu for it. You can also buy AMD processors but i dont know much about them
