electrineer909614dDo hinges on acers still break by themselves or did you damage it?
An upgrade to Phenom II X4 might be worthwhile if you can find one cheap enough.
@RememberMe I mean its very much possible but i dont know. I just know that when i was opening the lid i just heard crack and the panel started to separate and i had to open it carefully as the screen was bending since it was atached to bottom hinge which was stuck in place so i had to manually open the bottom hinge to open it without breaking anything.
But from the guy in the store they didnt have this issue for a long time.
I mean yeah when i was opening the laptop i was opening it quiet fast but still from center always and when i had the laptop opened i didnt close it for few hours so the hinge didnt get so stress as from normal user.
What im going to do is probably to get the entire laptop chassy from alluminium somehow. This way it will cost me a lot but it will fucking last a shit ton more. if you look at Acer nitro 5 and that red bar at back i will most likely 3D print that as i dont quiet like the weird red look. On photos it looks really red which
would be cool but its just not that red and looks to be honest horrible. I will 3D scan it with a friend and 3D print it in blue filament. next will be upgrade to the screen. 45% sRGB colors is horrible and as i saw what 120Hz screen looks like i will upgrade to 300 nits 120Hz 79% sRGB screen. Also thats IPS so fucking amazing.
But before that is RAM.
I will not even explain how horrible this RAM whats inside is. Its just fucking horrible piece of shit that runs like this RAM which i have in this PC right now. Total utter shit.
Timings are just shit.
And the CPU isnt running at its full speed due to this.
That would be most likely all for the upgrades.
Oh yeah i forgot a SSD which is inside thats total bullshit too.
Will upgrade it to 512Gb M.2 SSD and the 5400RPM drive will be replaced by 1TB SSD.
For laptop i payed 869E and with all the upgrades it will cost me around:
250$ Replace HDD for SSD
150$ for 512Gb M.2 SSD

toriyuno206114ddoes ram speed matter that much?
