I built this computer a few months ago because i had been interested in computers for about a year and finally decided it was time. I mainly use it for homework, games, and some online projects. The tower itself cost about 1200 total, but i had to get a full set up as i had nothing at the time of building (my first pc ever). I meant for this pc to be high-end, but to still have a decent price/performance ratio. That may go out the window if i install a custom loop as i plan to. I built it, realized there was a big old gap on the right side, so i did that crazy thing with my cables until maybe i watercool the pc. I remember when i first put together the parts outside the case, pressed the power button, and nothing happened. Turns out i had plugged it into a dead outlet.
1883 in firestrike. 1407 in cinebench. 19422 total score in 3dmark firestrike. 24607 graphics, 18721 physics, 7695 combined.

Very nice processor for the price! At my time of buying it was 70$ cheaper than the core-comparison 8600k, while only lagging behind 3-7% in games. Got all cores to 4.1 @1.4v, but decided on 4.05 @1.35v. Over 1400 in Cinebench!
Nice little cooler for the price, buy the mounting process can be a *****. For the first day my processor was hitting 95 C in cinebench, but it resolved itself the following day. I literally have no idea how or why to this day. Its been over three months.
