Started upgrading my PC today only to find that my PSU doesn’t have a 6pin connector for the PSU coming tomorrow.

I had the system stripped down anyway, so put my new Noctua case fan in aaaand it’s catching on the case.

I can see this entire upgrade being a complete and utter ballache. 🤦‍♂️

@kev if your system is older than 3 years you'll probably need replace everything except of the case and drives, while the drives will be probably the parts that give you the biggest performance boost if you switch SATA-SSDs to NVMes and HDD to SATA-SSDs.

@sheogorath yeah, that’s what I’ve done at this point. I thought I’d be able to keep the PSU though. 🤦‍♂️

@kev Haha, that’s how it goes! By the time your done it’s still your original computer because you reused the motherboard screws and a SATA cable :P
