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

This is pretty much exactly the same as my first build from back in 2012. Ran it until february last year, CPU still going strong after 8 years of hard use. Only had to change the gpu after it died (probably my fault). The power supply went right across to my new build and is powering it no problem, and I'm still using the ssd as well. They were some quality parts.

pmsl, just found your channel ... I have the same case, similar issues except I had a water cooled twin 680 sli setup & beefier cpu, but basically a similar situation & looking to renew after a water leak killed it 2-3 years ago. Fun and informative channel, thank you.

yeah mine is worse. popped the side off the other day... dear god. I had it built for me, and never bothered opening it because life and kids and stuff. There is no cable management. Not a single cable is routed behind the motherboard. There are like 3 zip ties holding the rats nest together, and I've never cleaned it, so yeah... it's bad. I figured hubby would have cleaned it when he upgraded my ssd a few years ago, but nope. Dust for DAYS. Now that I have the time I'll build something myself, but yeah I wouldn't recommend whoever built mine. Holy hotdog sauce that thing's a hot mess.

This amount of dust is nothing compared to what I've seen in my days. This is quite tame. almost clean even. Nothing to be ashamed of really. If one finds this "dirty" one hasn't been in the PC upgrade business for real.

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.

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!!
