Project Avachinsky - A brief history

Few years ago, a young man had a very old PC. A PC that can do nothing but to lag and to crash. Being able to watch newest game gameplay on the internet was a bliss for him. But inside, he envy those people who were able to play those games. So he set a dream, that one day he will build his dream PC and play all the new games that's coming out, being one with its community, and to show the world that he's able to catch his dream.

Lel that was cliche. Although most of it are true. So yeah, I used to have a very old PC, and some of you guys might have witnessed how old it was (especially you, Tactical_Injustice). It was a Pentium 4 PC, with only 2 gigs of RAM (it was upgraded, before it only had 1 GB), 320GB hard drive (which I'm still using now) and Nvidia GeForce 9500GT (my first upgrade ever). At some point I bought new power supply (Xigmatek NRP-VC403) because my OEM power supply couldnt handle the graphic card. It was build around 2006 I think, and lasted until 2014 with minor changes over the years. With that rig I was able to play TF2, BF2, and COD 4 on an okayish frame rates, and most of the time low to medium settings. Can it run Crysis? Actually it could lel. But yeah on some level the framerate was unpleasant.

Around mid 2014 I finally able to majorly upgrade my PC. With shallow knowledge I had about PC parts, I decided to go with AMD A4-5300, thinking that because it's dual core it should be comparable to i3 (which is not, I know nothing back then XD). I also bought cheap motherboard and RAM that I'm still using until now. With that PC, I saw a major improvement on TF2, and it was a bliss for me. But then I tried Battlefield 3, and then I experinced major lags all over the game. From that point I realized that my computer is still not good enough, and I did a deep research ever since. Oh and at some point my 9500GT died after extensive modding of Skyrim lel.

Late 2014, I've got myself a new processor (and graphic card), AMD A8-5600K. I know it's not particularly good, but it was a major improvement from A4-5300. Entering the quad-core level performance, I'm amazed with the fact that it could run some newer games like Watch_Dogs, AC Black Flag, Battlefield 4, and some other games with medium settings and playable framerate over 720p resolution, that is also without any discrete graphic.

So far this year, I've bought some minor stuff like cooler (Raijintek Pallas), case (Corsair Carbide SPEC-02), and fan hub (ThermalTake Commander FX) that I'll cover two of them below. My next target is to get a new graphic card, probably GTX 960 due to power supply limitation. I hope I can see this card sitting on my rig late 2015. Wish me luck!

Well I think that's all the not really brief history about my PC, Avachinsky. So yeah, I've been through a lot of things. And I'll never stop upgrading this PC, so I can fulfill my dream. Stay tune for more things about Avachinsky XD

Heyyo, this time I'll cover my two recent purchase for Avachinsky, which consist of Raijintek Pallas (air cooler) and ThermalTake Commander FX (Fan hub). If you want to build a pc or buy some pc parts, I suggest you to take a look at these two things :>

Raijintek Pallas

Before I bought this, I was deeply dissapointed with AMD stock cooler. I mean cmon, stock clock speed with stock voltage can reach thermal margin under 1 degree C with Prime95 test? And the sound was loud like a jet engine. I can hear the fan spinning even when I wear my headphone. Then I realized that I need a new cooler.

(Thermal margin is the gap between the processor temperature and max temperature, used in AMD Overdrive software. So yeah, my processor was only under 1 degree C from its maximum temp)

At first this wasnt my choice. My choice was Cooler Master Hyper D92, a small cooler with exceptional cooling capacity and badass looking. I didnt choose Hyper 212 and its spawns because it was too big for my SPEC case, although some legends said that some people able to fit it in their SPEC case. Back to the topic, when I went to my local computer mall and they said all the Hyper D92 were empty. I checked many shops and all of them ran out of stock.

On the last shop I checked, I decided to go with another cooler. I tried to make quick choice, and saw this Raijintek Pallas low profile cooler, and they added 'Germany brand' after the cooler's name. Without thinking too long I decided to get this cooler, thinking that 'if it's Germany it's good'. Top kek.

At home, I was dissapointed with the installation. It was a pain in the hand, and literally pain in the hand beacuse the heatsink cut through my finger when I tried to adjust the mounting hole that wasnt positioned right. I had to do many trials and errors to get the mounting holes right. After that, another problem came. The fan clip was too short, I was only able to clip only one before I put brute force and pliers into the fight. And finally, because the heatsink was too big, it blocked the 4 pin cpu_fan slot. I had to blindly plug it and it was so damn hard to do. But when everything was placed correctly, I ran the PC and checked the temp. 28 degree C of thermal margin with Prime95 test. Damn that's awesome. Then I overclocked my processor from 3.6GHz at 1.3v to 4.2GHz at 1.34v, then tested it again. 20 degree C of thermal margin. Daaaaamn that's even more awesome. So yeah, I think it's worth it. I recommend this cooler for anyone who needs small cooler, tho remember to plug anything on the motherboard (including the included fan) before installing the heatsink.

ThermalTake Commander FX Fan Hub

Next is ThermalTake Commander FX Hub. This thing does a simple job, connecting all of your fan into one hub and then power it with SATA cable from power supply. It could contain up to ten 3-pin fans, and it also has blue lighting in the middle. The packaging contains velcro tape so you can mount it basically everywhere inside your case lel. Installation is simple, and the price is quite cheap also. The downside maybe only its blue LED light, but whatever. It's not that bad. I recommend it for people who has so many fans (pun intended?) and their motherboard does not support too much fans, or for you who likes to manage things.

So yeah, it was pretty long but I hope you enjoyed it lel. We'll meet again next time I get new parts for Avachinsky.
