Hi Everybody

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought a pc from my friend a good 5-6 years ago, this was the specs

Case - Cooler master haf 922
Mobo - Asus m2n4-sli
Cpu - Amd athlon 64 x2 5000+
Gpu - Nvidia 8600 gts , which one of the capacitors blown in matter of weeks, replaced with 9800gtx+
Ram - 2gb ddr2
Psu - Standard 400w

So recently i decided to upgrade, now bear in mind i have never built a pc, changed a part , or even opened the case. But theres a first for everything. I looked around and read some reviews and decided what i was going to get. let me just point out i love gaming on my old pc.
This is what i ordered

Mobo - Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 AMD 760G
Ram - Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB DDR3
Cpu - AMD FX 6300 Black Edition
Psu - XFX 550W Core Edition
Gpu - Gainward Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2GB 2048MB
Cpu cooling - Freezer 64 Pro

It went together fine as a first buld, not as hard as what i thought it would be.

Is there anything i can add to the system to make it better, i dont mean upgrading the cpu,gpu. I mean temp wise, or any little gadgets like work a treat (fan controller etc)
my cpu runs at 18.5 C on idle, and the gpu is 34 C
Is this too high, is tere anything i can buy to keep it as low as possible?

Idle temps are irrelevant. As long as your GPU stays under 80C at load and CPU under 60C you're fine. Use linx or prime95 to test max cpu temp and just game or use a benchmark for gpus max temp. Good benchmark would be unigine heaven.
