Description

Yeah I'm posting my first build. My plan was to make a above average pc to run some pc exclusive games. The 500gb hard drive was pulled from my ps4. Hardest part about the build had to be the cable management with this case but I got it to look as neat as possible. I did overclock to 4.2 at the moment but with my current temps I'm sure I can go higher but I'm still skeptical. I'd like to hear opinions since this is a first build.

Great build for a relatively modest budget! Kudos for not getting a flashy motherboard. I see too many youngsters nowadays pairing their CPU with an overpriced monster that they will never fully utilize. And it looks like you used that extra $$ for a great graphics card.

You should let those sleeved ATX cables flow free in the wind :D Good looking build.

Well... if we all could afford Intel, we would all (probably) buy Intel. On the other hand... I say post your system specs, benchmarks and costs before you call anyone out for their choices, AMD or Intel. Here's mine, go for it.

Why does nobody god damn get that you pay the same price or SLIGHTLY more for huge amounts more performance?

Why is everyone so god damn ignorant towards AMD?

See? $5 more for much better CPU performance

firestrike is a free demo on steam if you look next to the purchase area, you just cant run the 4k and extreme tests.

Yeah, I used Firestrike - the free demo version. So? You can too. And as regards your build? Been there, looked at it already, shrugged it's ok, I guess.

You really are mis using the term bottleneck and the psu isn't a CX...

Are you stupid...an i3 has two cores and an amd 8xxx has 8 cores....YOU CANT COMPARE TWO CPUS THAT ARE SO DIFFERENT. AN I3 would obviously have more power per core but in the whole picture an amd with 8 cores would easily destroy a dual core

There are not many singlethreaded tasks that an amd can not beat...high single threaded performance and low multithreading performance is stupid. Everything now adays that is a heavy workload requires more threads so you i3 doesnt do **** when you say it beats a 9590. Looking at real benchmarks even on cpu boss i3 beats a 6300 in one out of five benchmarks

bottlenecks don't occur across the board, it really just depends on what games he's playing and if he overclocks.

I have overclocked to 4.2 but still have 45 Celsius on load at the moment Is that where the CPU fails ? Overclock capabilities ?

That's pretty reasonable, as long as it doesn't get up past 60c, you're fine most of the time, unless you get a bad chip or something, but thats about where mine hits is about 40-45c while gaming, sometimes i'll dip over 50 a tad, but that's rare, so you're fine.

It's actually the corsair gs 700 maybe the older version idk if it's the same as this one but when I looked up the part this is as closest as I got but thanks for the feedback!

You obviously don't know what a bottleneck is if you are just throwing the term around but yeah. I'd say this build is solid for the price. The AMD CPU does a fine job and is great for it's budget price. With this kind of budget it's not like you can stick in an Intel processor. For the budget it is powerful. The only problem with the computer I see is the small amount of storage space. When it comes to "bottlenecking", the AMD CPU maybe limits the GPU by at the most 10 frames per second while gaming, which is negligible. Compared to an i5-4690k, that's solid performance for almost half the price. I'd give this build a 9/10. Good work, you know how to budget my friend :)

Yeah I thought the hard drive could be a later thing since it is new. I don't got a big library at the moment but when the time comes I'll probably go with a 7200 rpm 2tb But thanks for the feedback !

I've been playing most of my choice of games at ultra like I said it's for exclusives anything else I have a ps4 which I think has a better overall online experience

Are you stupid? Okay, you get your puny little i3 out, get cinebench running, and put it against my 8320 @ 4.5ghz. Let's see who wins the race. Or, let's see who gets a higher fps in games made for more threads, cities skylines, battlefield, or FAR CRY 4. Then lets do a render test. Who can get a 10 minute 1080p video @ 30fps with a couple layers and effects out faster? Dual cores aren't the way to go. Maybe 4 years ago, but they don't cut it anymore.

The amd CPU is old, but Won't be a extreme bottleneck, maybe like 5ish FPS I'd predict

I agree, I'm going with Noctua NH-D15. The Phantek is also a good option, it's louder than Noctua but has the better looks. 212 Evo also comes highly regarded. Yeah return that and go with a Phantek.

Don't see the problem with it My temps are really low. Guess it's just one of those things where I wanted liquid over air

Hey i like your build and that really cool purple black and orange theme!!! And i have a few questions to ask about your build: 1. Hows the motherboard working and did you overclock??? 2.If you did overclock do you think that this can handle a 4.8ghz overclock on the 8320 or 8320e and have a 2 way crossfire???
