Description

Used mainly for gaming. Upgraded around the motherboard I bought for my very first build, and has served me well. The FX-8320 runs much hotter than I like, and I'm sure my fans could be better, but hey, it keeps me warm in the winter. The Storm Stryker probably works great for water cooling setups, but it's not my cup of tea after a year with it.

Why didnt you just buy 2 sticks of 8gb ddr4 ram? It would have been cheaper than 4 sticks of 4 gb

I started out with 2 x 4gb from my first build 4-5 years ago, bought 2 more last year.

"but hey, it keeps me warm in the winter" I'm going to use this as my excuse for warm temps now

why did you buy so much storage? do you really need that? I mean 1TB hdd and 480 GB sdd is not enough ? ( just asking )

I bought the SSD's for OS/productivity programs, TB hdd because I have a shitton of music/movies. The other two were just old HDDs I had room for.
