The 114EUR PC

I assembled a new computer system for my dad this week for only 114EUR . I have lots of spare parts so the only thing I needed to buy for his system was a motherboard and a processor. This rig will only be used for office work and Internet browsing so the specifications are pretty low-end:

Intel Core 2 Duo E2140 1.6GHz CPU with stock Intel HSF
AUS P5GC-MX/1333 motherboard
Integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics
Super Talent PC2-8000 2x 1GB memory
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 PSU
Maxtor 120GB HDD

All this hardware is housed in the huge ThermalTake Xaser VI, I offered him some smaller cases but the Xaser VI was the one he liked most.


The system is fairly quiet, the only part that makes a lot of noise is the hard drive. The performance isn’t too bad either and I’ve read that the E2140 is a really good overclocker, some sites report the chip can be overclocked 1GHz without even playing with the voltage.

  1. Cool PC you have there. Maybe you can add one or two more fans to make the system cooler? My hard drive is the noisiest device that i have. Sometimes really disturb my sleep as well… Dang.. 😥
