New PC

Just built this for my in-laws. It’s for web browsing & Netflix but actually has respectable gaming performance.


  • AMD A10-5800K APU
  • Gigabyte F2A88XM-D3H
  • Corsair CMV4GX3M2A1333C9 4GB DDR3 2X2GB DDR3-1333
  • Antec Basiq VP450 450W
  • Antec VSK-3000E MINI-TOWER mATX Case

I seriously impressed by how smooth and cool this machine runs. It passed my full stress test of three threads Prime95 + FurMark running simultaneously. The CPU/GPU reached at most 45ºC and the hottest part was apparently the southbridge at 55ºC.

Even though it’s such a basic system I still gave it the full treatment, installed the heatsink with Arctic Silver 3 including tinting the surfaces and did fairly thorough cable management although without drilling holes, cutting off unnecessary wires or sleeving. There is a loose SATA+power in there where a mechanical HDD is going to be installed later.
