Gaming with style!

What I learned:

Linkworld Cases are rather sloppily constructed and come with hefty shipping charges! This kit is "valued" at over 1000$ but I was able to contruct for under 700$ by buying on sales and ebay "Like- New" purchases! DON'T SKIMP on PSU! I had to replace the one that came with my case after performance was worse than expected 6 months in!

Sorry about wire management! its on my to-do list! UPDATE: Sold this machine for 800$

I probably would have went with the 760k since it performs better single and multithreaded tasks but this is an admirable build. Please post more internal pictures. Cheers mate.

It is not guaranteed to cause damage. MSI lists the 8320 and 8350 as supported on their specification page.

But this is a budget board and that's a powerful chip i kinda want to test it but not waste money

Thank you for looking at it! I believe it is correct socket and I do not overclock so it is only a jump from 95w to 125w which this board supports. Am I missing some fact here?

You should be fine. The 8320 and 8350 are both on the supported CPU list for that motherboard.

Plenty of people get it for free from Universities and deals online.
