Description

Accidentally got the Blue power supply instead of Red power supply.

UPDATE:

I moved the white fan to the side later and the red one to the top. Rewired all cables, change fans to correct airflow, and cleaned it up in general.

First four pictures are the original build; the rest are revised.

Fix up those cables and that is a hell of a good rig.

Personally I would have bought a higher quality PSU. Not bad though. You should also fix up the cables, it is a mess lol.

Just wondering, can you flip your psu and pull air in from the btm and out the back? Thats the way mine is but I have a filter under it. Just a thought. It makes my lights point down under the base of the rig, kinda an underglow effect. Just a thought. good luck with the cables. It can be tedious. +1 bro!

Interesting fan situation there. I can understand why your psu fan is facing upwards because it is taking all the air from your top two and rear fans. But great build. Almost got the gunmetal but extra cash so

AMD makes darn good CPUs. I'm an Intel fanboy too. For heavily threaded things, AMD does a great job.

And you're very wrong his CPU is as good as an i5 in most games and better in heavily threaded things. For cheaper.

For the price of the 8350 I really do not see why you would go the 3570k ;c

Because overall, the 8350 is just as good. And even better in some cases with hyperthreading. And this is a Video rendering build, so 8 threads will come in Handy. So It's not a wrong choice here to go with a 8350.
