Description

Built as a replacement for a laptop long past its gaming days. Everything was installed over 3 hours and booted first time with no issues. Runs steady at 4.0Ghz, great fps on all games played.

More stats/specs to follow once fully tested.

Not just Any build, Amy build.

Good job, I'll bet it blows that old lap warmer out of the water. +1

For sure, she was getting 10-15fps on League with low settings, it was the kind of thing you see in horror stories, a laptop so chunky it could be used as a murder weapon haha.

Runs like a dream now, and since she probably won't be running games like The Witcher 3 on it (Just League, Overwatch and a few others) I think it's definitely more than enough for what she'd need.

Cool red and black scheme, with a good punch.

Just curious, did you spell "any" or is it dedicated for someone named "Amy?"

Haha, it's actually built for a girl called Amy :P She needed a new computer and asked me to build something within her budget :)

Um, Why not go with the 1060 Zortec?

We were already pushing it with the budget she had and since she doesn't play any extremely demanding games the GPU is more than enough for what she'd be doing :P

Ow that's a lot of money for a very subpar PSU

The CX430 isn't terrible, but it's not great, and definitely not worth $70 when compared to models like the CX450M, S12II, TS Bronze or Rosewill Quark.

Oh. I thought that you meant it was crap, a bomb, etc.

In terms of power required, not at all, it's enough for the build and even extra hardware, but it's only bronze rated efficiency so it could be better that way just to save a few degrees of excess heat inside the case, also it's only semi-modular so the main cable was a pain to work with.

Effiency really means nothing when it comes to PSU's

The PSU has no effect on the temperature inside the case since its drawing around from outside of the case and is directly exhausting it out side of the case. Plus even if was flipped out it would act as a exhaust fan, not intake.

I was trying to clear up misinformation about the CX series which seems to be what he was referring them. That they are crap, bombs, terrible etc. All of which are myths.

Agreed, but I basically had to make cuts where I could to bring it within the budget range. It powers the rig fine, but I have given her a list of a few parts she might look into upgrading when she has the money, PSU being one of them.
