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

If anyone is curious, 2500k@4.6GHz performs similar to Ryzen 2200G@3.8Ghz, and 2600K/2700K@4.8GHz is similar to Ryzen 3100 at stock or 2400G@4.0GHz

i just went over my buddies' house this weekend to help them with pc cleaning. they are brothers and have the same Dell Alienware PC and hadnt cleaned them ever (PCs are over 3yrs old). after cleaning and replacing the thermal paste on both the cpus and gpus they both got a 10-12 degree improvement on both the cpu and gpu. it was pretty nasty in there.

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 .

Intel 10th gen only makes sense if you need 10600K performance. Otherwise R5 3600 offers like double the value with little performance impact.

I bought a PC back in 2013 and a friend put it together for me. Now I'm finally getting around to actually looking to upgrade. I have never been a PC fanatic and so this is like learning a different language again. Please don't be mad at Mike. There are plenty of us just like him. I share his shame.

Holy shit. This was my case before I sold it like a year ago and I even had a same cooler. It was like watching my system. 😂 So surprised to see very similar setup especially the same case considering not many pc users buy high end case and it is old case so surprised to see it on my YouTube recommendations. This case was an absolute beast. It was high end and could house few graphics card with good cooling. I remember paying good money to it back in the day lol. It is huge case. I was so heartbroken when he said like what back in 2012 and looked down on that case for I/O. 😞 Time fly by. If I haven't sold my system would of been like 8 years old but tbh I wouldn't of changed the case probably since you have newest I/O on motherboards anyways and I doubt new cases has much to offer tbh compared to this one. Of course if you build new system get new case but you don't have to upgrade case imho.

Hi Bitwit, a pc novice here, I was recently given a hand-me-down pc that dates back to adam and eve. I was wondering what could be the best upgrade that i can do. I play only Overwatch, on a 75hz screen, and I’m currently a student. The motherboard that my rig has is a msi pc55-cd53. Side question: can I use my dyson vacuum to clear off dust from the system, like i have seen in a couple of videos. (Still worried about the issue of static)
