I built this computer to replace my 'gaming laptop' which consisted of a dual-core Intel processor, 3GB of RAM, and integrated graphics. I was playing LoL and Eve on it, lowest possible settings, just, uhg.
I'd like to thank Amazon Prime for everything! All my parts from Amazon were ordered on a Friday and delivered on the following Tuesday! Woop!
I've overclocked the CPU, stable, at 4.83, which is a very nice OC until I can get a better watercooling solution. The h100i is amazing, and everything fits perfectly in my case. No complaints from it! I'd like to get a 5.2gHz clock on that processor, but am running into heat issues.
End goal is to upgrade this to a full watercooling loop with 2GPU's and the 8320.
Also, this motherboard. My god. ASUS really outdid themselves, I love it! This was also my first wiretuck, so if you have any pointers or tips on how to do it better, let me know!
Let me know what you guys think down below in the comments! Sorry about the phone pictures, I'll have some more up soon!
