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



      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.
