First Build

by Darkslyfo



CPU Clock Rate


GPU Core Clock Rate


GPU Effective Memory Clock Rate



Over the course of the last month I have bought all these parts when on sale. At the current prices This cost would be around $570-580, so I'm pretty happy with the $400 overall price! Everything works perfectly.
The only problem I ran into was trying to change the timing and frequency for the memory.. After changing it, it wouldn't post. So I cleared the CMOS and just left it at 1600 for now.

Only things I don't like about it is the green on the PSU (color scheme) and the front Bezel is 'lopsided' by design... overall, its been a great first build, especially for the money.

Thanks! Yes, there is a 140 mm on the top as an exhaust, and I moved the default 120mm from the back to the front as the intake

Nice build. How did you get the Video card so cheap?

thanks. I built it 4 months ago. It was right before Bit coin mining drove the prices of video cards through the roof. Regular price for the card was around 130ish. I got 20$ off on newegg, plus 20 MIR. For the money, it was an amazing build.

bought them over the course of 2 months. It was around december 2013, and the radeon gpu prices hadn't been driven through the roof. The rest, were just steals I got.
