Oh god, looking at your pictures I thought suddenly I acquired a bunch of dead pixels in the center of my monitor!

Nice build! But that 8c idle temp is a little off. Amd temperature sensors aren't the best at idle.

Ah, OK. I was thinking 8c (~50F) sounds a little low for Spring time 70F outside. :p

Edit: That's a scratch on my phone's camera. :(

Great Pictures.

Thanks! I was really excited when I made it so I had to take some good pictures.

That is once nice looking mobo! Good choice on the processor, I have the 8150 and I love it.

 
 
URXP2ME [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks! I'm really proud of it!

It's a pretty sweet mobo. Had it for a while until it was handed off to a buddy. My only complaint about that board in particular is the lack of a USB3.0 port. Not a huge deal though, a $10 PCI card works all the same.

How's the motherboard? I'm thinking of a build with that exact motherboard, and was wondering how well it performed/ met your expectations.

 
 
URXP2ME [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

Great MOBO! When I got it one of the heatsink had fallen off but I put it back in place and everything is cool! I'm very happy with it though it only 4, 4 pin fan connectors

Good job man! Good price to performance.

 
 
URXP2ME [Submitter] [2 Builds] 2 points 8 months ago

Thanks! I searched around for a long time and decided on these parts because of the price/performance.

 
 
cribbett123 [2 Builds] 2 points 8 months ago

That is a sexy machine. Awesome build man!

Thanks! I worked really hard!

120GB ssd is that enough? I am planning to get 840 Evo 250GB to put all (or most) Steam games on it + Windows but that would add $50. Is that worth it, anyone?

 
 
Grizzlyx [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

I personally wouldn't go any lower than 250... 120 fills up so fast.

 
 
asura_ [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

alright, I figured I own about 25-30 games, so 120 wouldn't cut it

 
 
URXP2ME [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

I'm putting almost everything on my 1TB, just Win8 and a few other programs on the 120GB SSD. If you do plan on putting games on the SSD, get a 250GB

 
 
Grizzlyx [1 Build] 2 points 8 months ago

Love when people are proud of their work... the pictures show it for sure.

+1

Thanks! I'm making another build this weekend for my dad (the one in the corner :p)

I'll be taking just as many pictures!

I have the same case and is really good case so good choice

 
 
URXP2ME [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

I'm also building a new computer this week, in a Node 304, so that's exciting too! (It's a work computer, no GPU)

 
 
Hakumisoso [2 Builds] 2 points 8 months ago

That's an awesome case. What color?

 
 
URXP2ME [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

It's just the standard black case, with the red LED fans in the front
