I am going to build a pc for my father using an Intel Core i5-6600t. He currently has a pc with an AMD Athlon II x4 651k, gtx 680, 8gb ddr3 ram, and an ssd in a micro atx case. I would like to build this with relatively inexpensive parts, and I can reuse the power supply and RAM if I need to. Tell me what parts I should buy please. I'm asking about a cooler, fans, board, and anything else you can think of.

For gaming or just office work or for fun or a mix of these?


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (+100/+500, 1650MHz~1750MHz 0.78V~0.85V) RAM: +4GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 787 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

Light gaming, lots of office work. He owns a lot of games made between the 90s and 2015. (A few older AAA titles)

Well, what's the make and model of the PSU? Also it's hard to find a DDR3 motherboard for that 6th gen CPU, you'll likely need some DDR4 and an H110 motherboard.

 

Also, gotta ask, do you already have the 6600t or did you choose it for the upgrade specifically?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

A friend of mine gave the 6600t to me. I have a 600 watt power supply, and 1866 mhz DDR3 ram.

Unfortunately, I can't tell you right now what it is, but it had 80+ bronze certification and was bought in 2017.

For motherboard Gigabyte has models that support DDR3 memory and Skylake CPU's, but i dunno how available or cheap they are for you:

It looks to me that if you could get your hands on one of this boards and with that CPU you'd pretty much be done with the build (well if it doesn't already have one a SSD might also be nice), as for the rest it seems fine to reuse the current components.
