Description

Being this is the first computer i built i don't really know how to stress test it to get full performance out of it.d So i went with AMD well because of price issues, as far as i can see its performing quite well!

Also went with A-DATA Ram, i don't see most people buying this, but i like it! i do plan on upgrading to 16 gigs of this in the future.

So this is where i cheaped out on the most when i know i shouldn't have, i went with a 60GB Kingston SSD, I have my OS and league on it, its pretty much already full, i do plan on upgrading this some day.

So for my GPU i got a MSI Geforce 970 4Gb, I know everyone's gonna ask why i just didn't buy the gaming version. Well because it was out of stock and im really impatient and i knew if i was gonna wait any longer shipping would have been terrible with Christmas coming along. But anyways i really like this card its silent so no coil whine and does the job with just about any game! ive ran TitanFall, LoL, And Warframe, Always stays at a high fps and never drops!

So i chose Corsair Spec-01 RED case, Well its not really the case i wanted and on top of that the side panel had a dent in it ):< i dont really mind it honestly, but for the most part its a nice case i was able to work in it really easy for a first timer.

Power supply, Well its modular and its 750 a bit overkill but room for upgrades is neat.

Also i got blue fans because they were really cheap 4.99 a piece and i had litterly like 17 dollars left, maybe one day ill switch these out to match my case. :/

i wish i could give out performance tests but like i said im kinda new to this.

So to all the people who are scared of building there first PC by them-self dont worry, i have slight knowledge about this and i figured it out with no help! (Was really scared the first time i boot it up) lol

Cable management isn't the best i apologize to all you neat fokes out there. Will work on it!

Thanks for anyone who helped me pick parts! Everything together was under 1100 with tax!

So SSD, New CPU Cooler and more ram seems to be the upgrades in the future.

Nice build! And i agree that Adata doesn't get enough love on here. their RAM looks really nice. Wish i knew more about their SSD's so i could say something about them but i haven't really seen any tests on them

If those temps are for real, you don't need a new cpu cooler. I wish my comp had those temps. :(

http://puu.sh/dLIIg/ed25bc1d0a.jpg Temps, Runs about 20-30 when playing a game, Im still gonna buy a CPU cooler soon, Im using the stock one.

coretemp is a bit iffy, i think it reads temps above ambient, because on my old computer it reads the cpu as 9 degrees, i would use speedfan to tell you the temperatures. Speedfan told me that my old rig ran at 20 degrees idle, not 9. But that rig is still pretty cool though! and the build is great, i like it :)

Yeah i might just need to do so, it does seem a little low for a stock cooler lol

Where do you live, Antarctica? Those temps seem a bit low for a stock cooler. Otherwise its a decent PC build for the price!

I have been talking to people I know and I see that your build has stock heat sink. I am wondering if you have had any trouble whither the cup over heating

I've had no problem with it over heating at all, but i also don't plan on overclocking this until i get a new CPU cooler.
