Only one way to get practice I understand, but without tips we would never learn, but build looks good, also you can post up your build list before buying and people will always give you tips
Since you went with the FX 8350, why not go for a 990FX/990X chipset instead of the 970 chipset?
I feel like you could've took you build several different ways, like for example why not a high spec APU to save on GPU if they really needed the GPU power, and what do they do that would call for 16GB RAM, most system do more than fine with 8GB, but your budget seems to be decent
Everything is pretty good, I know you mentioned the PSU but you might want to plan on a better PSU sooner than later, the Corsair CX always uses either Chinese or Taiwanese caps inside and aren't very good at high temp ranges
+1 Cool build you got some good prices on a lot of the parts, but would agree that the SSD could've been better but hey whatever is available sometimes will have to do!
I agree with this, while I wouldnt say you have to go as far as the CM 212 Evo, almost any decent cooler will be more pleasing than the stock cooler
Actually this is my second one my first gave out unfortunately, new one has been going good but I did here for the xlr8 pro rma they are sending comparable pny optima ssd
They are pretty good at full speed they can quite bright and regular still show thru very well
Haha I keep line for fax but I always keep a phone just in case you never know... But yea I have two random hdd one a 750 and another 500 only thing that hasn't been upgraded in years. Thanks for the feedback
its comes with a intergrated fan header on the pump but i dont think that is on the non i series, but yea for your purpose yea any fan header splitter would work for you.
Yes sir its a push,pull setup with cougar fans, but its a pull setup
Really think it a very good place both functional and as you said aesthetically pleasing.
CX is known to not last and barely pass the min requirments or ATX, but Corsair makes other unit that are better, look at TX series, EVGA, etc, mostly just read the hardware reviews before buying psu, look them from people like johnnyguru, hardocp, legit hardware reviews, lots of sites out there goodluck!
Yea the case is awesome, I even got rid of my dvd drive to keep it clean as possible. and thanks!
Could use some work on the cable management side thou, I love the case thou personal fav
Look decent in a miniature point of view
haha yea I havent touched or turn in on in ages but I dont like to throw away old systems thou haha... but thanks thou I like to think it was a good idea
Yea it has SeaSonic guts main reason I got it plus its was partially modular for only $59
I cut out the rear 120 fan grill but I left the steel around the 120 holes already in the case and enough steel surrounding to make a firm mounting point and just put the pump from the outside inside and thats it...I wish I took pics of the hole I cut out...
I know there isnt such thing as future proofing but my budget was about $600 and even with everything I was able to stay under my budget which is why i just went for the better board, originally I was looking at the ASUS M5A97... Also I heard Gigabyte doesnt do good or isnt the best for overclocking.
I think I get much better temps with it mounted outside cause the radiant heat isnt trapped inside the case where its already hot.
something about it being louder than a air conditioning and that it was the stupidest idea to mount h80i outside the case and that its looks ghetto rigged something like that
how do you like the Samsung 840 Pro ive seriously been considering it.. speed wise
just cause you have no ingenuity or sense of creativity doesnt mean we all need to conform to your judgement...
thanks yea that H80i was a random idea that came to me in the middle of the night I pretty much just took out the dremel and go to work...
this was rated better than most at least according to the reviews at hardware secerts and also I think jonnyguru... I had considered the TX650 I think also too...
the point of the fans where so I can run them all at really low rpms and keep noise down but still have good cooling...
