"Athlon" - Steam In Home Streaming PC/NAS PC (Updated with Benchmarks)

Description

My 1st System (Upgraded System). This was Inspired by Many LinusTechTips Videos and wanting to do the same. Changes made to Athlon 1.0 was the CPU, and RAM. (GPU was a Add In because I can't remove a Integrated Graphics Card and HDDs were Free since we collect HDDs Kappa). I have used Athlon for 1 year and it was good for it uses. I will Miss it.

UPDATE: I decided recently to re-use Athlon as a Steam In-Home Streaming Rig to play games on my 4K TV at 4K or 1080p. I have changed Thermal Paste and CPU Fan Preset and it sits at 50 C Core 0 and 60 C Core 2. I will still miss it for gaming but it still has a use in 2018. Also I decided to start using it as a backup system in the house for all my own files from my own Windows PC.

Re: "Athlon"

I used the same CPU on a HTPC years ago. Very good CPU.

Wow, what a cool case. I should do something with my old Athlon. Not bad numbers either

I like the PC case (and the CPU).
Nice to see I am not the only person who has kept and upgraded their old PC with AMD Athlon processor from years ago .
I haven't got around to benchmarking mine recently though.

I was a Noob back then when Making the Choices but at least those choices expanded my view for Ryzen

I'm pretty surprised you actually like the OEM Case. Might as well revive it as a In Home Streaming PC. Thanks Mate

It's so amazing what Ryzen has done for many! For me it definitely put the fun back in building PCs. Not only is it a beast whether you go with Ryzen 3, 5, or 7, the price:performance ratio simply can't be beat!
