It was quite a fun experience building this beast sure cable connection took awhile and cable management was a handful as a beginner. Yes many improvements are needed especially changing the stock cooler soon. But as it is now im loving it! especial the clear window that lets out a blue glow. Next may up grade the the CPU.

I wouldn't say exactly the same but even a light over clock would fix that.

When AMD released the 270 it made the 270x a pointless card

I have the 270, and I just keep it at 1100 MHz.

Why did you put a different power supply in the parts list?

Am i looking at it wrong or did he actually put in the right PSU??

When you open the part on here it comes up correctly. Love the build, nice entry level gaming.

Thanks guys appreciate the feedback. the reason i got the r9 270x was because because of the Christmas sales on overclocker.co.uk I also got BF4 with it aswell as two free games with amd rewards all for £159 so i could'nt pass out on this amazing deal!.

Nice build... Interesting to see full AMD builds. I built my first PC in December 2013 too.

I have a similar set up except an i5 4670k CPU. I know.. Expensive and I'm not even over clocking it yet, but soon I will.
