I love it! Quad core Athlon's don't get nearly enough credit. Also, the giant *** noctua fan is charming in a way.
Great build! Blast from the past. +1
Oh my god, the story behind the minifridge makes this build even better.
The build date says march of 2016 which makes a difference. Pretty solid build for Q1ish 2016 imo.
Awesome budget build, that'll do nice in 1080p. Post a link to some of your tracks! I wanna hear 'em!
I LOVE seeing Phenom builds. Phenoms are so underrated. Awesome budget build!
Well, it is 144Hz though. It might be just a little overkill, but not by too much imo.
Thanks! Yeah, I have no idea what I was thinking with that fan positioning. Maybe I'll go back and fix it for him at some point.
Yeah, I didn't have any cables ties to use back then. Maybe someday soon I'll go back and re-do the cables for him.
Thank you, hahaha. I love it too.
That's a pretty badass budget build. I bet it performs pretty nicely. Good work!
God DAMN that's really good for under a grand. Nice work! I bet it kicks some serious ***.
Yes, that case comes with a power supply although I would not recommend using it. I'd recommend getting a different psu with at least an 80+ Bronze rating.
Looks sweeeet. Nice build! That older i5 should still hold up pretty well for a while.
Awesome looking build for a really good price. Nice work! Why liquid cool the i3 though?
Yessss, I love AMD builds. Hopefully with Zen they'll get more popular. Awesome work with the cable management too. Nice work!
That description nearly made me laugh out loud. Awesome job with the pc, too.
Take some pictures with the side panel off, I wanna see mooorrreee. Nice build!
You did a really nice job making that black and white color scheme unique! Beast of a PC, can we get more pictures of the entire computer and case?
Awesome parts list. You should update the prices on your partslist to how much you payed for them instead of using the description. It'd make it a bit easier to see.
This build is perfect. You couldn't have done a better job choosing the parts. I love seeing builds like this; built for a purpose with a budget in mind. That's what building a computer is all about, to me at least.
Excellent work! +1
Nice partslist, though with your price range you might have been able to get a 1050ti or a 1060 instead.
The 6300 and the 1050 is a great budget setup though!
Wow, that's bad ***. Coolest office pc ever.
Nice looking build! No compromises, but not overkill either.
Perfect home computer. Nice work!
The node 202 is so freaking cool. Also, the legos are an awesome touch. It'd be cool to see a picture of the whole setup!
What a great way to get on the PC Gaming train. That thing is a monster.
The partslist looks good. You did a really nice job on a budget. I'd love to see some more pictures!
Those noctua fans look so nice with that color scheme. Not too many people can pull that off. Nice work!
Sweet budget build. I always like builds like this more than expensive battlestations. Nice work!
Very nice partslist. Not overkill, but you didn't skimp out on low quality parts. You did a really nice job for a first build. Also, the cable management looks great.
Sweet build! +1
God damn, now THAT'S how you take pictures of a computer. Nice work and nice looking build!
You did a nice job with the partslist. Very quality parts in a budget-friendly build. Nice work!
Awesome, awesome build. I love seeing some Phenom budget builds. Excellent cable management. The build looks really nice!
EXCELLENT cable management. Wow.
Also, the partslist is really good.
This is impressive. Super nice job!
Put some more pictures on!
From what I can see, you might want to work on the cable management a little bit.
Otherwise, your partslist is perfect. Nice work!
Nice partslist. Best parts for the best price. You did a great job! Looks awesome!
Looks super nice for a first time build. Really nice job with the cable management and the parts choices.
If I were you, I wouldn't put in an extra 480 down the road. I would sell it and get a higher performance single GPU. You won't run into any problems that come with dual GPUs in games that way.
General rule of thumb: Never sli/crossfire GPUs that can't outperform a single GPU. Only do dual GPUs if you need more than what single high performance GPU can do. Also, it will require less power.
But that's just my two cents. Great work, awesome build! +1
I was thinking the same thing. i would go crazy.
Unbelievable job making a budget build look this good.
Super cool seeing a laptop upgrade on here. Nice work!
Looks absolutely stunning. Proof that the Noctua signature color can look amazing and you don't need a sick *** custom loop to make your computer look awesome.
holy **** that cable management.
AWESOME clean setup. Excellent work.
There definitely should have been more mounting screws in there. Also, I'd say you won't really need to upgrade from that i3 for a while. Maybe one you get a new GPU, a CPU upgrade would be in order. Otherwise, you got good parts for your price. Nice work for a first build!
I love this. Super unique. Nice work! I love the case.
I love Linux. Nice, simple, clean cheap build!
That will be great for everyday usage. They'll notice so much of a difference with that SSD and RAM.
Hope they like it, nice work!
You picked great parts for the price. I would have gone with an rx 470, 60, or 1060 but the 960 is a great card anyway.
Maybe 4.0 GHz. Only do that if your cpu isn't cutting it anymore. I should be alright for a while still.
Nice build! More pictures of setup please!
