My brother asked for his 21st if we could revamp his PC. His main problem was that the case had really poor airflow and was causing overheating issues a build up of dust. He also felt it could do with some more personality.
We bought him a new case with much more room and added 2x140mm fans at the front and a 120mm fan at the back, a vast improvement from the 1x80mm fan he had before. I also added a 120mm CPU Cooler to replace the stock Intel fan. He found his WD Black quite noisy, so we replaced it with a lower RPM WD Green. We also just had our WiFi upgraded to AC to his old, annoying, pigtail Wireless-N card was replaced.
For improved looks I managed to hide the cables much better due to the more spacious case, added some sticker bomb vinyl wrap to the sides and an NZXT Hue for awesome disco lights.
All parts marked as £0 were existing from his old Novatech build or second-hand from my old parts.
