Description

So I finally built my first computer after over a year of wanting to. Surprisingly, everything went perfect on the first try, meaning that there were no issues whatsoever on bootup. I've been using this computer for two days now and it has played every game on ultra settings at 60+ fps. I'd say there is one small problem which is how loud it is. Some may say that it is a large problem, but I always have a fan running in my room because of how hot it can get in my house. However, it would be nice if I could find out how to fix it. Now, I just have to start saving for even better parts!

Very nice first build, very budget oriented.

As for the noise, replace the case fan with any brand fan (I prefer Corsair, as they are high quality, and very quiet) and replace the CPU cooler altogether with a Hyper EVO 212 cooler. $40 bucks later, your computer is near-silent.

Unfortunately, the FX CPU line is nearly dead, and kind of outdated, but you still have room to upgrade (6350 all the way to the 8350), and with a new board, you can get all the way up to the 220W ******** (9590, a massive 8 core 4.7Ghz badboy)

That board can support any GPU on the PCI-E slot, so pretty much anything thats on the market now, and anything within the next year. You many need a new PSU for some of the higher-tier cards.

As for your first (IMO) upgrade, a SSD for your OS. Multiple times faster than any mechanical HDD, allowing windows to load nearly instantly, and makes operating the computer overall a breeze.

Enjoy your new gaming rig. +1

no no FX-6300 is common I was just wondering how you find it. I considering making a budget computer for a friend. I was just seeing if it is powerful enough for everyday computing plus more

im no expert but i think it will be good for a while 8 cores is overkill at the moment they have just begun to utilize 4 cores fully so i think having 6 is a sweet spot. and 3.5 ghz is fast enough and if need be can be easily overclocked. please someone correct me if i am wrong

Are you using the stock fan that came with the case? If so, that along with the stock CPU cooler can be causing all of that noise. I had this case and used the stock CPU cooler and I could hear my computer across my house.

Yep. the stock case fan and CPU fan are the culprits. Replace the case fan with a corsair bran one, and the CPU cooler with a Hyper EVO 212 Cooler (dirt cheap, and very effective) Problem solved.

Not bad at all, but would have gone with a 270x and a XFX PSU.
