Recently a admin on here reached out to me that his friend whom is borrowing a rig from me as he cannot afford a new one is having issues with the tower (this tower is old.. like phenom 9550 old)
So I decided last night to go through my junk piles and see if I could get him a working rig.
3 Dead towers I have are as follows
Cool Corsair case 775 rig
Quadro FX 1800
3 60GB SSD's that are old as #$%^
Random ass PSU
Dell Opti-perplexed dead psu and hdd rig
Dell 390 1155 motherboard
dead 500GB HDD
i3 2120 3.3Ghz
The Trashbin (PSU nuked this rig)
dead amd am3 mobo
8gb 2gbx4 ddr3
HD6950 2GB DDR5
So the Trash rig was pulled apart before this as the case was nasty so I threw it out.
So a reviewer here recently tried pulling apart a 390 to use in another case and had nothing but problems so I learned from his failures and started my modding
Specs of completed rig.
i3 2120 3.3ghz 2 core 4 threads
6GB - 2GB 1333 and 4gb 1333
500GB Seagate drive (temp for testing new owner has a 120gb ssd and 1tb hdd)
Optiplex 390 LGA 1155 Motherboard
Sapphire HD6950 2GB DDR5
Random ass PSU 500 watt
Windows 10 pro for testing
Total cost of build: $5 for some MX4 compound
So who wants me to make a video on this rig and see if it can handle new gaming?
Thanks for stopping by
