This look like it?


$350
Yes, that's the exact model. It was cheap! Haha, everything here is cheap except housing and imported luxury brands. Well, housing is cheap some places just not Beijing. My girlfriend's place is about 800 sqft 2 bed 1 bath in a complex and it's worth about 1 million USD. Which is insane to me.

I built my current PC in 2017.

It's a:
7600k i5
32g RAM
960 Evo 1tb SSD
Nvidia GTX 1070
Z270X motherboard

I feel like I got a very good chip. I'm not at all expert on overclocking, but I've been running this chip at 5ghz since I bought it. No special effort, when I set the system up I set voltage at 1.235 and chip at 5ghz.

I was messing with my set-up yesterday, repositioning my AIO liquid cpu cooler and I snapped one of the fittings. So I bought one of the cheapest air coolers I found in 30s of trying, a $36 cooler master hyper 212 black (could have saved $2 for non-black). My temps are MUCH lower (from mid 40s at idle to mid 30s, only getting to mid 80s during benchmarking) and at the same voltage I bumped my clock speed to 5.1ghz and I'm still running cooler than I ever did with my AIO water cooler.
The hyper 212 has been on the market with little change for a long time now (6 to 8 years I believe, maybe longer) for a good reason: it is cheap and very effective for most situations. I ran with one for a long time, in fact until I got into a higher end chipset with a heavier overclock and even then I started with the 212 and upgraded to a Noctua as the OC was driving higher temps than the 212 could handle. But it is a great air cooler, no doubt.

Computer parts are so cheap in China. I'll have to post my new gaming computer I just bought here. The shop I bought the parts from charged $20 to put it together for me. I also picked up a 4k 32" curved monitor from Phillips for $200. That seems really cheap to me, but I haven't looked at USA prices.

Any OLED computer monitors over there? People have been waiting for these like 7 years now and still nothing.

Looking at the main shopping platform there seems to be a really expensive Asus one that's 26". I don't see many others. Doesn't Alienware have one?

I also washed my keyboard in the dishwasher, a corsair K70 Lux RGB. It was touch and go the day after but I'm typing on it now 2 days later.

Football Manager 2020 is free at Epic Games. I routinely spend around 400 hours every year playing. It's complicated for any newcomer but damn is it entertaining.

I would devour a basketball manager game if it was as good as the FM franchise.
