Custom PC Build
This customer’s computer died recently after 10 years. We built the system for them, way back in 2012 so it certainly lasted a long time. The only work that it had done during this period, was an upgrade from the old mechanical hard drive to a new solid-state drive.
It turns out that the Power Supply Unit had failed and fried the motherboard. It was using an FM2 Socket and DDR3 Ram, both of which are no longer supported with new motherboards..
We agreed on a new custom system using an Intel i5 CPU, 16GB DDR4 RAM and a 480GB SSD. The system was built as planned, the customer’s user data was recovered from the previous system and transferred over, before setting up all their software and email. We also securely wiped and disposed of the old system.
