New Project, ultra low cost build *8 core Build for under $120*
« on: February 21, 2017, 09:59:37 AM »


Paid for this bad boy on the weekend $39.00 with taxes,

tonight we start the "8 Core Build for under $120" going to cap my spending at $120 meaning I have a total ofr $81 left for this build

Going to go with dual quad cores and at least 8gb ram to start

gotta find a good GPU though for cheap but the used market has many of those :)

Will talk about starting specs once it's in my hands as well as do a base line video for it

Powered her up last night but first lets take a closer look

Above we have the tower, Kyle thinks it's giant I say it's average ;)


Damn why do recyclers love stickers.. it's about using less waste not making more


Originally was considering modding the case and sticking with this one but I have a pile of cases from peoples thrown out dead old systems I would rather use


So under that stock 771 cooler we have a intel 5410 Quad-Core at 2.33Ghz

As you can see it has a nice 12mb of cache

4Gb 4x1GB DDR2 ecc Ram

Running at a blazing 667 :P

Next a powerful gpu with a epic 256mb ddr2 ram

A PNY GT 8400 GS 256mb with a build date of 2008 :O

A Ablecom 645 watt psu

Windows 10 loading on it in the background.

So full base specs are

-LGA771 s5000xvn Dual CPU Intel board
-Single E5410 Quad core at 2.33Ghz
-4GB 4x1GB DDR2 ECC 667 Ram
-2TB Hitachi 7200 RPM HDD (got it out of a dead rig :D)
-PNY GT 8400 GS 256mb DDR2 GPU with S-Video, Dvi and VGA
-645 watt Ablecom loud as fudge psu
-Ugly as sin supermicro case
-Windows 10 Pro x64 for base tests


Setup last night seemed to go well, all drivers are installed and will get all the benchmarks and some games on it, Any requested test?

Thanks

I should have more ram for that. I will check tomorrow if I remember! I got a bunch out of a Dell similar to this.
