Super Budget Gaming PC! - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Y did u waste money on a cooler and overclocking? The general public thinks overclocking fries your cpu. Everyone that has heard I overclock thinks its going to melt down my pc even though i've had my E6400 at 3.2 ghz since 2006 (or 2007 whenever they first came out)

I didnt waste money on a cooler. The CPU was OEM from Hong Kong (Guaranteed to unlock) so I needed a cooler either way, and I figured at the price I paid it makes sense.

£260 was enough for me, considering how cheap it was to build. + the guy came and paid cash in hand, so no complaints. Now im gonna rebuild the exact same PC
