CPU Clock Rate

4.1GHz

Description

Price included taxes and all that jazz.

Plays League of Legends at max settings at 1080p 60 FPS. Maxes out all the old Valve games such as Left 4 Dead 2, TF 2 at 1080p, at least 60 FPS. APU slightly overclocked to run memory at 2400.

I went over budget as I was not originally planning on buying the wireless network card and the SSD cache. I did not buy a regular SSD due to going over budget.

Overall, I am happy with this build.

great little build, I have been quite amazed at how powerful that APU really is.

Looks pretty cool. How did the cable management go?

Ace Ventura reference on the name of the PC? :D

nice case, I was looking at that when I built a "mini pc" and decided to go itx with a Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced instead

Post more pictures! I might buy this case for a second computer for LAN parties.

Really like the build. :D That APU is a nice piece of hardware.

Out of curiosity, how is this performing? I was going to build a similar one from a friend but then I chickened out.

Did you have to update the bios for the new Richland APU? I'm really interested in using one for an upcoming build.

mattataki 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

May I ask why the 2400Mhz memory? And why a CAS Latency 11? The APU only supports 2133Mhz anyway.

And Since I am building something alike, may I also ask you how well you likeit so far? Do you like the CPU cooler?

And finally, I was wondering, the best use I found for SSD is to put the OS on it. I heard for small capacity SSDs, you could use intel software to use it as cache and boost overall computer speed. I see it sais on yours ReadyCache. Does it include such feature? Because I was wondering if it was possible to do such thing on an AMD build.

In the future you should look into a dual graphics solution but by the time you want to upgrade they would have dual graphics compatible with the 7800 series or maybe even 7900

Great Build ;)

You don't need one with an APU.
