This is my first build and it has been great time assemble all the parts. I had a bit of help along the way but its all up and running now. I had a few problems with thermal paste and how to apply it at first but now it's been running for a few months the temps have gone down and I can run battlefield on ultra like a dream! Hope you enjoy looking at the build thanks.

Why the downvotes? I feel like I'm missing something.

mateuszr [1 Build] 2 points 12 months ago

If I had to take a guess, it would be the lack of photos and/or a more detailed description of the build.

Solid build. F the haters they don't know what they are missing. Happy new years!!!!

Happy new year thanks!

Similar to other poster, I don't get the down-votes either. Looks just fine! The mismatch fans on the EVO cooler do give me pause though.

I guess they do look a bit weird il change it now thanks

here`s how i set mine up, looks pretty cool

grove4life [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

Seriously. I read the list, saw the pictures, and upvoted. The score was -3 after my upvote. I was so confused. Solid selection, clean assembly. Probably some dislike trolls or something.

Why did you go with after market thermal paste?

TomPoolHD [Submitter] [1 Build] 3 points 12 months ago

It was £2 at a local shop so why not

Thanks for the reply!

i think it looks fine and alot of time was spent onit

supramp 1 point 12 months ago

That case is awesome. No need for a full tower case IMO. Unless you really need the room. +1 Nice Build

PolishXlion [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

Basically what I wanted to build but with a different case. +1 for awesome build

A good build, really don't see what's wrong with it.

overkill on that psu but nice build

TomPoolHD [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

Did not want to cheap out on a PSU and it gives me room to sli my cards Thanks

ck3 [1 Build] 1 point 12 months ago

500 watts wouldn't have been cheaping out but i agree with the upgrade room idea.

edit: sticking to a 750w would've been the best idea.

If I were you I would get a fx 8350 or 6300 and with the money you saved, get a better video card like a r9 290 or 290x
