Description

Well my brother wanted a custom computer cause he was always using mine. I know that it is probably bottle necking the gpu a bit compared to the cpu but he will be playing more gpu intensive games so it will not be a problem. the only problem that we ran into is that we got a faulty gpu and are in the process of returning it so for the time being there is a little one that can kinda run minecraft. But for the day that it worked he really enjoyed it

Great job. I'm willing to buy this Mobo very soon isa, is it working good enough?

yeah this mobo is pretty cool and it is having no problems. The bios seems like it will be very easy to overclock but he does not want to do that till all the warrianties go away

I hope young blood is paying you back! Rad build, and great set of pics to demonstrate the unboxing and build process. Let me know if it's working okay for you/him, and if you need help with the inevitable Windows 10 upgrade, holla atcha boi. SO PROUD OF YOU, YUNG JOSEPH.

I mean you could have gotten better performance in a lot of different ways and that SSD is one of those hit or miss ones. I would definitely get a higher quality PSU down the road for the next upgrade. CX series capacitors are rated to work until 30C. Your PC is getting hotter than that. So you're running a bit of a time bomb right now...

Other than that is looks pretty good.

Nice job! Im running the same cpu and had the same psu. For that graphics card and that cpu, you might want to consider going to a higher tier psu. The CX are not reliable and 600w might be cutting it close. Also, flip your psu, so you can pull cold are from the bottom.

Reliability aside, I would disagree with 600w not being enough for the CPU - GPU combo. Nice build, so does your brother have to do your chores for a year to pay you off now? +1

the minimum requirement is 550 watts

Reliability aside,

but that is the problem here... no reliability with the CX series.

Well putting the parts list together it says this thing will only draw 409w so thats why i went with the 600 and all the review seemed that this was a pretty decent bang for the buck from a reliable name. oh and flipping it over that is what i was going to do but my brother wanted it that way so the words are facing up.

check this tier list out for psu.

i had mine facing up too but i figured it would be beneficial to pull the air from the bottom.

i am not to worried about putting the psu upside down because even when we had the working card it was still very cool in the case so i doubt that it will become an issue and for the reliability issue that people are saying. is it a top of the line psu? no. but it is in the lower middle range psu and we arnt overclocking or pushing it to the max and trying to make it work very hard so that should not be a issue either
