Description

First computer build. Use it mostlly for general computer use, with some gaming on the side. Have it hooked up to a 24" Insignia 1080p TV. Wireless Logitech keyboard and JETech mouse (Kinda meh). Replaces my laptop which I was getting sick of. Eventually(Maybe), I'll get around to tidying up the cables. HDD isn't connected yet, since the Mobo didn't come with enough SATA cables. Also, wish I hadn't installed the Hyper 212 Evo with the Cooler Master logo upside down. I think I used a tad more thermal paste than I initially wanted to use, and installing the heatsink was a little more trouble than I expected, but otherwise everything came out great.

Update: 1/28/2015 Connected HDD, since my 120GB SSD was getting kind of full. While I was at it, I got around to tidying up the inside cables. From the front, the inside looks pretty nice now. The back(Which thankfully nobody can see), is a complete nightmare of cables though. Also, yesterday I overclocked the CPU to 4.6 GHz instead of the stock 3.9 GHz.

Update: R9 390 installed in there now, and of course I needed to get a beefier PSU as well. I'm also using a decent wired mechanical keyboard and wired mouse now.

I have the same CPU and am thinking of buying the same graphics card. How well are you able to run video games on your PC?

I haven't played too many games, but it handles the ones I've played pretty good. Don't think it could handle the newest games that well. Personally, I'm going to upgrade to an R9 290 later this year.
