Description

CPU : My "old" FX8320, still a great CPU for gaming and doing random stuff.

GPU : Sapphire 7970 Dual X OC. Still ready to play on vey high 1080p without lowering many things. It's a bit noisy when under heavy load but still doing the job ! I had to cut a bit the optical bay to fit it ^

RAM : Cool one, nothing to say about it.

Storage : Great SSD and confortable HDD.

Case : A bit disapointed, very hard to have a good airflow..

PSU : Very noisy under load, surely because of it's temp because of the bad airflow I get in there. I had to flip it so it can suck air from the inside. Other side the solid front panel of the Prodigy was totaly blocking the flow... Stupid.

Display : Great monitor !

Mouse : Logitech, perfect as always..

This build is pretty good, but I'm not sure why you got that monitor unless you got that awhile back. If you look it up on the viewsonic website it's only $265 though.

Thanks ;) I've change the monitor model. It's the ViewSonic 27" LED - VX2703MH-LED. Why aren't you sure about this choise ?

I'm not saying the monitor was bad or anything, I was just saying it might be a little overpriced and you could probably save some by getting a different model

Interesting, how does the FX do on a mATX? i always default to ATX but i might reconsider. (like, OC'ing, and performance

mATX mobos for FX of decent to high quality are as rare as unicorn-leprechaun hybrids. The chipset you want for optional IOc'ing and performance is 990FX. The chipset used in the above isn't really recommended for FX unless you're using say a 4300. If you want a good MATX, go Intel or A-series. But these are just things I've gathered from forums, I don't own an mATX FX system so yeah.

Like @reoper6 said, FX is not good if you want to overclock in microATX. mATX AMD mobos are very rare and are not very high quality.

Thanks ! I've "upgrade" my cable managment, maybe I'll post more pic soon.

If the mobo only goes to 1333MHz with memory, why'd you get 2133MHz sticks? Or am I missing something?

You're right ! I've bought them more than one years ago when I had a ATX build with a different motherboard.

thats a bad mobo choice for a fx 8320 but other than great(though i would change to a 970/990fx to be safe with that cpu power draw)

could have gota corsair 450d/nzxt h440 for the price but you went small could you explain why people like m-atx builds i see no point in limited space, so limiting hardware upgrades,etc.

Good build, although, at this price range I'm kind of confused why you didn't go with an Intel CPU. But hey, your choice. :)

Thanks ;) I used to have a Corsair 600T case and I've buy all of my ATX build in april 2013 and at this time, my budget wasn't 1200$+, I've buy things once by once. So first choise was this FX8320 because of the price, but now I want an Intel of course ;) and a Nvidia card.

Ah, I see. I was gonna go AMD for the build I'm working on now, but there was a deal with the motherboard I got that included 8GB Ram from HyperX which brought the cost down to where the AMD build was priced so I was like "Why not, and I'm now waiting to get the i5 and a few more things. :)

I would also love to know, building a blue/white themed rig like this too!
