New and Old PC
The customer brought the PC in to us as it had become really slow and, when left off for a while, it would make a horrible noise for a few minutes when turned on. The customer also expressed their concern that their data was not backed up and there were a lot a valuable pictures that were important to retain.
Upon inspection of the PC we quickly discovered that the noise was due to the AMD HD 5870 Graphics Card fan failing. The hard drives were also on their last legs, being nearly 8 years old, and were the main cause of the slowness. We advised that to replace the graphics card and hard drives would not be economical as the PC was so old and other components were likely to follow in failure.
The customer was very pleased with how their current Custom Intel i7 PC had worked for them so far and how long it lasted, that they were happy for us to specify and build a new Custom Intel i7 to get them out of trouble and see them into the future.
New Intel i7 Coffee Lake Custom PC
After discussing the customer's requirements we put together a specification for a new Custom PC to transfer all of the data on to based on our Custom Intel i7 Coffee Lake PC. The new PC consisted of the very latest 8th Gen Intel i7 8700K, 16GB DDR4 RAM, A super fast 500GB Samsung 960 EVO M.2 Solid State drive as the boot and operating drive with a 1TB Western Digital Hard Drive for backup. As the customer also occasionally plays games, and has family that also like to play games on the PC, we included an nvidia GTX 1060 3GB graphics card which is far superior to the old graphics card but not over the top for the customer's intended use.
After the new PC was built and a fresh copy of Windows 10 was installed, all of the customer's data was then copied across from their old Hard Drive and the customer's Office and Norton software was re-installed. When all of the work was finished we then set and ran the backup to ensure the customer's files will now be safe.
The speed difference on the new PC is phenomenal! As you can see from the video, the boot time is extremely fast and using the PC is even more responsive. We are confident that the customer will be more than satisfied with their new Custom Intel i7 Coffee Lake PC and that they will get many years of happy use out of it, also keeping their mind at rest that all of their data is being backed up.
