This APU has a much better built in graphics adapter. That is the target audience, not people with sick video cards to match with their i5.

That heatsink is brand-new, just got released in north-america, price in america is around $55 anyways, It's actually really good, and totally worth $60. And thank you, it was tough not buying everything brand new but i ended up saving like $600.

Yeah they actually work really well, that card is in crossfire, so it doesn't have the best airflow and its always below 50.

I chose the S524 V2 because Cooler Master makes great Coolers and I wanted a top-down cooler because they do a good job keeping your mobo and RAM cool as well, I also wanted it so I can put a Cougar Vortex 140mm PWM fan with orange blades on it for the looks.

Well thanks for the response but I don't really know how to respond. I think you are seriously underestimating the prices here. This is a pretty amazing build for $1300 CAD. Presentation Wise: I got the parts that I wanted, maybe you could've built something that looked better in your eyes but this is what I wanted, Orange. This is my favourite case, these are the only orange blade fans you can get(other then better cougar vortex PWM; which I plan on getting), and I got 4 of them for $20, the only 990fx motherboard that has orange on it is the Fatal1ty killer and it's nowhere near the Crosshair V for about the same price. I wanted a top-down cooler that I am planning on putting an orange fan on, so maybe you like the smaller liquid coolers, I only paid $15 for the LED's and orange cables cost over $100 so no thanks. I think presentation-wise I did pretty good. When you say maybe some better pictures will help I don;t really know what you mean. People like my build, I'm sorry that you don't. Anyways thanks for the feedback, If you've never used the H440 I can see why you would say that, there are a lot on here. But once you build with it, you'll see why it's everywhere. It's not about trying to beat the last guy, like you said there are some tough acts to follow, it's just a really good case that people like building with.

It is listed but they won't let you have 2 different crossfire cards anymore. They used to, but now you can only have 2 of the same card. As soon as you click to add the second card it just puts a copy of the first and won't let you change it.

Yes they are. And these are mostly great prices. Ordering most of this stuff new around here would cost around $2000.

I had it in the Hot Swap bay but it wasn't detected, I think it had something to do with the cables being pushed against the motherboard pins, through the hole. I just put it in the HDD bay to avoid more hassle. W/e lol

Love it. The 8350 was a great choice. You might want to grab a 990fx motherboard in the future to overclock though. Great card and my favorite case ever, I've used it twice in the last 2 months. I just used the Orange/Black version in my latest build, you should check it out.

Thank you. It feels good to be here. Luckily a GTA V crossfire driver came out like the day before I installed the second card.

Lol, well the thing is that with the lights it never actually looks orange, it always changes to odd colours. So I did take that one out and stuck with the ROG one, just moved it where the other one was.

Yeah right now I've got a 280x running 1 1080p and 2 720p's, when i play games on 3 monitors i have to set it up so they're all 720p though. It's pretty awesome. In the near future I'm going to be getting another 280x and 2 more of those monitors.

The BenQ EW2440L has pretty much no bezels making it perfect for 3-monitor setups, even with a different monitor in the middle.

Looks really nice though. Great cable management. +1

What games you playing on it?

550w is not even close to running 2 970's and a 4690k. XFX Pro 850w.

The one you have there is pretty good for the price. I would stick with that one. Top of the line 990fx would be the Asus Sabertooth V2.0 but the gigabyte has great reviews and its a good price. You shouldn't have any problems with it.

It just means that they're not making new CPU's that fit the same socket(AM3+) So when they release their next set of CPU's, they won't fit in that MOBO. You'll need a new one with a newer socket.

And when it comes to the CPU, I feel that with the upcoming release of DirectX 12 a lot more games will be able to utilize all 8-cores. I expect when it comes to those games that this CPU will be on par with an i5-4690k for like $50 cheaper. And personally I prefer AMD; the only negative for me is that it's a dead socket. When you want a new CPU you're gonna need a new MOBO too. The LGA 1150 socket seems like it's going to be around for a while.

Well just the general quality of the unit. Seasonic power supplies are the best. They don't die out as easy, they are more reliable, they use quality components to ensure that there products are top-of-the-line. When it comes to the device that sends electricity to my components; I like it to be well made. And when it comes to something with 750w you're going to be paying around this price for anything.

The SSD hot swap bay where you have it is where it's meant to go. Yes they have the standard bays but Stick with the Hot-Swap bays. Don't listen to him!

Also, one more thing. If you do overclock and your temps get higher then you would like; you may need an aftermarket CPU cooler. On the cheap end go with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. This is a very good cooler for the cost. If you're willing to spend a bit more go with the NZXT Kraken x41. Also very good for the price and it matches your case very well.

Hey, this looks pretty good for the most part. I went with the FX-8350 and it's amazing, if you can get one for like $30-40 more i would do it. The motherboard is good. You need a 990fx(which this is) if you plan on overclocking an fx chip. I'm planning on upgrading to one soon. I'm still using a 970. That is good ram. Don't need super high speeds or anything for gaming. In a year or two you can grab another set of the exact same to put it up to 16gb. That is an amazing SSD. If I was building a pc today I would buy the exact same one. Maybe look into getting a Seagate SSHD instead of the hdd, They are about $10-20 more for a 1TB and it will make your speeds for everything not on the SSD a lot faster. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/seagate-internal-hard-drive-st1000dx001 I'm using a 280x. They are awesome, don't need anything better in my opinion unless you're running 3 monitors. Can't go wrong with XFX double dissipation either. I would probably go with a different PSU. I went with an EVGA 500w 80+ bronze and I'm already thinking about upgrading. You'll be good with 750 but I would go with something made by Seasonic or XFX. This one is perfect. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ss750am2 And that's a nice monitor and case. Personally I prefer the NZXT H440 but whatever you like really. They are both easy to work with, with great cable management. It's just about the look for me.

To anybody building with this case. Don't listen to him. There is no vent on the bottom-panel of the case and you will be blocking your PSU fan. You don't want that.

Yeah I would definitely go with the H80i. It works great and never has to be refilled. The only negative is that they are basically guaranteed to only last 5 years....but in 5 years it's going to be outdated anyways and unfortunately your processor probably will be too. Go for it.

The H80i comes pre-filled and never needs refilling. Though it is overkill if you're not planning on overclocking. If you are going to be using your CPU at stock speeds you should go with the Hyper 212 EVO. But, If you are going to be over-clocking I highly recommend the H80i.

Honestly man. Unless you have a lot of extra money, I would just stick with this 970. It's more then you'll need. The difference between the two cards performance does not make up for the price difference.
