This is first built in late December last year (2014), and its used for gaming and school work, since then I have upgraded the PSU, wireless adapter, added a second GPU and finally cable managed this little sucker. From now I think I am done with upgrades and I hope this big microwave will last me for the next 3-5 years (Thanks AMD'S head production)
A Break down of parts:
This processor is amazing! I find it really good for for raw performance for things like games and streaming content over the internet and between the house, I have over-clocked it to 4.5ghz and I am loving the performance!!! I think I will wait to zen to upgrade this little guy (Not for a long time)
Well S@#t this is a seriously underrated cooler for its price, I snagged this little guy for $10 AUD and it meets all my needs, I can get a good overclock on this guy and its not very loud at all!!!!!
MSI 970 Gaming board
This is a good board for the price, it has a lot of good features and has a super easy to use BIOS, it had alot of PCIE slots and up to 32gb of ram so I think I am set
Ram 8gb.... what it ram!!
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1tb
This is amazing for the price, it does the job really well and install was a breeze. I really don't need a SSD because I think its just a luxury.... (and come on dont u like clean ur desk while ur PC starts :P)
R7260X X2 (Asus and gigabyte)
These cards are brilliant, now I know the haters are here with the two mid range cards but I brought them at separate times and cant get the sorta money to buy a new GPU and just have another sitting around.... and its cool getting to say to friends that I have got 2 graphics cards
Cooler Master K380
Well I was lucky with this!!! I originally ordered a K250 and then this arrived instead!! and its meant to be $20 more!! This originally came with a crummy PSU which I soon replaced
Dammmm this is good, I really love the modularity of it and that the cables are sleeved :P
Overall I found this super amazing and I would like to thank the PCPP and toms hardware community for all of there help, I really do appreciate it
