Inspecting my friend's old PC that's been neglected for years. This is what happens when you let routine maintenance fall by the wayside. Bad Mike! Bad!

LMAO at me reading the PSU shroud thinking it was the PSU. Oh the joys of looking through a 3" LCD while filming. It's almost as hilarious as my hair in this video. Glad it's chopped off now. XD Stay tuned for Mike's NEW PC build coming soon!!

This is literally my pc. Haf x 2600k 970 16gb ram Working on a new one though. Saving my money to go all out on new parts, keen to see how amd zen 3 goes as intel dropped the ball and charging a fortune for a little stepping stone for their 11th gen 🙄 But yeah, that generation has served me so well for the past 8+ years. She will be missed

lol, there's literally nothing wrong with this system. The only bad thing about this PC is the graphics card. Toss in a new graphics card and maybe another 8GB of RAM and it'll still play any modern games on high settings at 1080P or even 1440P. I'm still rocking the 2600K with a GTX 1080 I recently bought second hand as an upgrade. Unless CPU's come out that are like 3X's faster than what I have now I'm not upgrading until DDR5. I'll skip DDR4 altogether.

What is it with Mikes? My roommate is also a Mike and he NEVER cleans his PC. It got so dirty and clogged he killed it completely. Of course he claims it had a bad main board but when I see a PC that dirty I know what killed it. BTW, playing blu-rays in windows is as simple as purchasing some software.

Do almost nothing to the machine other than clean its insides and reapplying thermal paste. Use the hard drive bays the case actually provides and turn the machine into a server. Anything else is pointless and a waste of time.

kinda sounds and looks like my system. I Built it originally around 2012 (including, what was then, a super expensive 120 gig OCZ vertex 2 SSD) and have only upgraded the gpu since then (a 980ti as a replacement for 2 HD7970s) and an additional 500gig ssd for games. Also had to replace the motherboard about 5 years ago because the original just died one day for reasons I will never understand... Stuffed it all in the cavernous coolermaster cosmos 2 because i was totally going to put a custom waterloop in there which i totally never did. It has held up pretty well though, admittedly mostly because I'm still playing on a 60hz 1080p monitor and not really playing latest gen games but still. Even more recent games like horizon zero dawn and death stranding can be played maxed out at a not completely unplayable 40-50 fps (estimated). It's finally starting to really show its age tho, I had to free up space on my ssd for horizon because the loading times (and stuttering whenever new areas were loading in) were atrocious. Probably going to upgrade once zen3 and the new 3000 series from nvidia hit shelves, until then this will have to do :)

You mention an AIO "explosion" and it sounds like everyone stopped using the towers they were used to. I could hardly imagine that happening really. All in ones (AIOs) are not the best choice for everyone. Aren't they more similar to a laptop than a desktop? Then when I think of all in one I think of some Apple computers and not in any sort of good way at all. Then one other thing I tend to think of when I hear all in one is printers. You guessed it, I don't like those either. I hate inkjets and threw mine away for a Brother HL-2140 which has been 99.9999% trouble free (the rest of that being one, JUST ONE paper jam in 15 years). Sure it is only black and white but inkjets are horrible printers!!

Watching this on my FX4100/GTX470/HAF912/Hyper212 PC. Was my first time overclocking. I also cleaned it out not that long ago, but it could probably stand to be cleaned again. I can probably optimize things a little further, bring down temps/voltages, possibly try for 4.5GHz stable again, a more modern GPU... maybe an RX 570?

It suprises me how similiar this PC is compared to how mine was. I bought my PC in 2011, i still have the same case as seen here. Let me tell you, thats a huuuuge case, in person it is even bigger. But it provides great cooling, better as most modern cases as I was told. For the CPU I used a Core i7 2600k ( until 2016 when my motherboard died and I upgraded to a Core i7 6700k which is about 60% faster than the older one). I also used to have 8gb of 1600 mhz RAM Even tho the cpu only supported memory speeds up to 1333mhz of DDR3. My CPU was a GtX 570 ( with a blistering amount of vram 1,2gb). So I upgraded it in 2014 to a radeon r9 290 (4gb vram) capable of decent wqhd gaming for the time and even 4K for some old titles. In 2018 my beloved radeon card was replaced with a gtx 1080ti.

I did build my 1st Computer back in 2012. xpredator evil green, an i7 2700k, an GTX 550, an 250GB ADATA SSD for windows and some HDDs for games. I also had this exact same BlueRay drive in it. My Case also has this Frontpanel eSATA 3x USB2 and one USB3 but this doesnt have the internal USB3 connector instead its an USB cable that goes through the case and plugs into the MB I/O. Im still using the Case and still have the Blueray drive in it also if it got barely used... But 2012 was this big BlueRay Hype and i didnt have a BlueRay Player and just an HD-Ready TV so i got one for my PC. Later i Upgraded my graphics card to an GTX 770, then the Mainboard died and i Upgraded to an i7-7700k. Almost 2 years ago i then Upgraded to an RTX 2070 and mid 2019 i got an M.2 to replace the SSD as my System drive Couple of month ago i started to have some strange boot issues and got me another Upgrade of MB, CPU, RAM and PSU. So i have an Ryzen 9 3900x now, hopefully this will last longer then this i7-7700k.

Oh yeah that fucking price is more importent , Nivida`s 2000 series a joke of price politic . By 1000 series , 1060 GTX Zotac with 20% highst oc cost 330 € her in germany and the 1070 TI cost 420-440€ best card was 1080 Ti with over 650€ . Really we dont need to talk abaout Titan cards ... because that useless for Games with that price . If you not a rich bastard that have very thing for mom or dad or you Exploit people and get rich ... in my option in germany price marktet i dont pay more than 400€ for a GPU ... i skip 3000 series and RDNA 2 . Maybe price politic chance with 4000 series and RDNA 3 because is second and 3 genaration of Raytracing and the price goes more stable . I really damit hope that RDNA 2 is strong enough to run with 3000 series and RNDA 2 is 100€-200€ cheaper .
