Our old computer was 9 yrs old, and couldn't do much other than the internet, so when we got our tax return i figured a computer i would build is better than a store bought one. our budget is 650, so i figured that the best for our buck was an APU. I did my research and, total with fans i paid 600, which isnt bad.
I got the best APU currently, figured i would go with liquid cooling, its about the same price for high end coolers. made shure that i got a motherboard with an hdmi out to hook up to the tv and a blue-ray player to go with it to play bluerays.
1 thing that i didnt do is check which ram is compatible, the ram i got isnt that compatible, if i OC to 2400, the computer freezes, even at bios boot, it takes a few try's to bring it up, i lowered it to the 2033 and it works. i got the NZXT case and fans from WALMART!! i didnt know that they sold computer parts! so check there for cheaper things (well maybe). i picked up the case and brought it home and opened it and a plastic piece fell out. i was like "........ that looks broken". 4 of the 6 retainer clips that go on the front of the case were broken (that hold the plastic front on). i was MAD, but it took 2 weeks to get here and i had some epoxy around and i just glued them back on. the cable management needs some work but its hard with SO MANY i didnt know what to do with half of them, 5 fans = bad cable routeing, the case has e-sata, usb, fan control (which i cant get working), led, and the buttons, which is alot to hide, not including all the power supply cables. gave up after 45 min.
so far all i use it for is league of legends, planet side2, minecraft, and watching anime. wife uses it for sims 3. works great so far!! other than the OC'ing problem i had.
PARISE AND/OR CRITICISM APPRECIATED!!
update, reworked the wiring. the4 wires you see are in the back, nothing blocking the air flow but 4 wires! and the 2 benchmark picks are with oc ram to 2133 and with 2400, u can def tell a diff.
2nd update-ish got the keyboard, it is black and orange (dunno about the pic, but its the same model number). matches exactly with the computer.
