I use the machine for school work, gaming, and YouTube.

-UPDATE- 4/20/16- Upgraded to Phanteks p400 Eclipse and plan to upgrade to either gtx 960 or r9 380, a hyper 212 evo, a msi krait edition, and a fx 8370e. Messed up prices a little bit but eh.

-UPDATE- 5/24/16 Just upgraded to the gigabyte gtx 960 g1 gaming edition, Sorry for the bad quality pictures

Part Reviews

CPU

Very good cpu for the price

CPU Cooler

Its not a 212 evo but its better than the amd stock cooler

Motherboard

An okay motherboard for 50$ mine shipped with a faulty fan header so yeah.

Storage

A good amount of storage on an ssd for only $45

Storage

Bought it off ebay and it works fine.

Power Supply

Its a good budget power supply, but the fan is not the quietest

Great build, also, did you have any problems with the ram at first? Mine is 1600 mhz and it gives me the beep code of ram.

was there a benefit using that 92mm noctua over the tx3's 92mm stock fan

There was some but it was a small difference, the main reason i did it was just because it was quieter
