Hello TPU! I have a gaming computer that is almost 3years old-- without doing any upgrade, not even on the cooling! So I am saving up now and planning to upgrade it, since I don't think building a new one helps my pocket. (hehe) I have listed my specs in the desc. What I am planning to upgrade: CPU, Video Card, Storage, Coolers What I play: Usually I play the good old GTA IV and some other old games like BF3, Crysis 2.. (because my PC Can't handle new games) I will play GTA V tho. What I have in mind: months ago I was clueless of the "Thermal Paste" thing for my pc (my CPU was installed by the shop I bought the parts with), and so I needed some "Cleaning" because it is getting dusty. I removed the cooler of the CPU and GPU and put it back with the old and dry thermal compound (I know, stupid right?) so then after that, my games were logging like hell (5fps is the worst) I thought I needed to buy a thermal compound AND an aftermarket cooler. What do you guys think? Is my current cpu specs future-proof enough if I replace the thermal compound and buy an aftermarket CPU cooler like, Antec H20 620 / CM V8?? Sorry for the long post!!
