I did it again. I bought another Dell Outlet PC and I am going to upgrade the CPU and add on a H50 Corsair CPU cooler. This PC is for my mobile work bench, and testing equipment in the garage, so cooling is important. I had some extra space on the side of the rolling cabinet and wanted to keep the top clear for equipment and video. Wait till you see where the H50 went!
Why do this to a Dell? Again…
If you go to the Dell Outlet you can get some great deals. For $200 you can get a basic PC with Windows 7. The cases are nice, the power supplies are clean and they come with DVD drives and software. You could not build your own for that price. Windows 7 alone will cost you $90 OEM!
- Dell AMD PC $202 (Dell Outlet)
- H50 Corsair Cooler $54 (Tiger Direct with Bing)
- AMD Phenom X3 8750 $65 (Newegg with Bing)
- 3 Ultras (optional as always)
For a total of $321 you can build yourself a nice and clean rig. Well…I have not mentioned that the H50 does NOT fit inside the case. I have a work around for that.
Directly from the Corsair website:
- Pre-filled, closed-loop system is easy to install
- Copper CPU cooling plate for maximum cooling performance
- Integrated pump and reservoir is sealed for zero maintenance and improved leakage protection
- Large 120mm radiator for fast heat dispersion
- High-efficiency, low-noise 120mm fan for drawing cool air across the radiator
- Two-year warranty
The Corsair supports the following CPU sockets:
