that is just beautiful.
do you have the APU and GPU running in dual GPU mode? if so, that's one hell of a setup.
THIS is what i consider to be a console killer (i may have just started a flame war. please god let it not happen again like LAST time i commented on an AMD build. lets just say that there was an AMD fanboy trying to tell me off for stating facts.)
screw 1080p! that thing'll run 1440p and pretty decent 4k!
i assume it's not going to explode and kill everything in it's path right? (referring to the name. i hope it won't.
are you just using this thing for an htpc? if you are, that's pretty good for an htpc.
i'm not criticizing you or anything, but i find it very interesting that you went with 2 RX 480's. you could've gone with a 1070 for that money (maybe a 1080 at a discount).
are you selling the case too? if you're thinking about it, don't. spend like 30 bucks on a cheapo case off newegg (there are decent DIYPC cases for like 35 usd) then sell the current machine with that. the Dukase whv2 is more than you'll need for a long time with 240 mm rad support in the top, support for a 140 mm fan in the back, and if you're ok with a squeeze, 2 120's in the front. plus it looks cool.
you can pick up a corsair H60 120mm AIO for 60usd on newegg right now soooo.
swap out that room heater of a CPU for something from intel (6600k or 6700k). the FX processors may be tempting, but they're the sirens of the computer world. they promise so much but offer so little that they're a waste. that thing uses pcie 2.0 for crying out loud! you'd be better off with the highest clocked i3! trust me, once you go with an intel CPU you'll get performance you never knew you could get out of a 1080. go watch jayztwocent's video on weather amd still bottlenecks (video name "how much does AMD REALLY bottleneck"). even if you go with an i7 4790k you'll be able to use your current ram, but you'll get way more performance with your rig.
i have never seen someone mod a stock cooler before. very interesting.
i cringed when i saw the intel stock cooler.
it's a lunchbox with a 5820k. why? because you can.
Darn you jipster! you beat me to it!
my guess is windows, linux, and mac OS.
what's so overkill about it?
ooooooooooooooo. founders edition. pprreettyy.
i still look for P.C part deals, even though i have a quite capable $650 gaming rig (look forward to seeing a completed build of it).
i'd have to agree with joe25c here. you should really upgrade to intel. i was looking at fx processors, and they were compelling at first (and 8 core for 150 bucks i thought), but then i found out that they use a 3 year old architecture that didn't age as well as the intel chips of the time, and the fact that they only utilize pcie 2.0. other than that i'd have to say great job! i have that case and i love it. in my opinion, in a year throw out that mother-board/CPU (just sell'em on ebay) and grab yourself a Z97 intel mobo and i5 4690k and an aftermarket cooler. then you'll have a CPU to back up that 1060.
it's my rig on steroids! i have a 3 gig 1060, an i5 6400, b150m grenade from msi (great little board for the price) and 8 gb of g.skill ripjaws V. i even have the same case. oh and i'm rocking the intel stock cooler. i have a different ssd and hdd as well. i have the same dvd drive too.
i have the white version of that case, and it's beautiful. only 5 usd more too. also why didn't you go with a 6600k?
nice to know that there was another 15 year old who just built his new p.c. i went with an i5 6400, team green for the gpu (1060 3gb windforce oc edition) and a motherboard that supports ddr4. and i went with the deepcool dukase whv2. it's a better case than the one you got. take a look at it. only $55 on newegg, and it has build quality and features to rival an $80 case. it's amazing (it's got one blue led fan included with it though. not a deal breaker, just beware of a crap ton of coil whine).
know that i have since changed the i3 to an i5, and gone with the stock cooler instead of the hyper 212 evo as i'm going with an aio liquid cooler this christmas.
get rid of that raidmax PSU. i've had one take a perfectly good AM2 mobo with it. it was a nice board. 4gb of ddr2 800, AMD athlon 64 x2 6400+ (which thank god the power supply didn't fry), a radeon 5770 (later upgraded to a 560ti). it was a decent system. after that board got fried i switched to an asus M2N-E SLI mobo. decent board. had it laying around. it had an athlon x2 7550 on it. an overclocking experiment fried that board (not the chip surprisingly enough). then i switched to an old dell inspiron 546 with an athlon 64 x2 6000+ in it, along with 4gb of ddr2 667. i switched out the athlon 64 for an athlon ii x2 260. then came my birthday and i built a new system from scratch. i carried over the EVGA 600w PSU (highly recommended), the 240gb adata sp550 ssd, and the WD caviar SE 500gb hdd, and that's it. got a brand new GTX 1060 3gb windforce oc edition from gigabyte, a 2x4 gb kit of G.skill ripjaws v DDR4 2133, an MSI B150M grenade, an I5 6400, and a deepcool dukase WHV2. brand new it would cost around $650. i payed less because i already had some of the parts. for me it costed $610.
