I think I got a good deal on a rig that a friend at work built for me. For $400 I got a new Thermal Master case, Nvidia 1060 GTX 3GB GPU, 8GB DDR3 RAM, i5 3.6Ghz processor, 600W power supply, a 250GB SSD drive, Windows 10, a Razer Black Widow gaming keyboard and a Steel Series Sensei mouse.
The processor and mobo were used, as are the keyboard and mouse, but we ditched the processor’s POS cooling fan and put in a Cooler Master Hyper 212 fan (the kind with the copper tubing). We also put in three case fans, two intakes in front and one exhaust in the rear.
So now when I run say, Battlefield 1 on max settings, the core temps stay stable at about 60 degrees C when run hard.
Did I get a good deal?
