Description

Yes it's AMD get over it.

Re-sleeved power supply and did a little cable lacing. External mount the rad fans. Removed the plexi window and Replaced with glass (will be etching PC name in glass). Will be changing the APU soon going to upgrade to the new AMD 7870k.

   Starting to plan my next build and yes it will most likely 
   Be AMD

Part Reviews

CPU

Love the speed and the on board graphics are great. Drop 1 star since it don't have HSA

CPU Cooler

Great cooler for anyone that wants to get into liquid cooling. This is an open loop that comes pre-filled and ready to install, you can leave it like it is or expand to cool GPU or chipset. Comes with fan controller but did not come with the three liquids stated in add. Best looking mounting plate I have seen as well as the easiest to install.

Thermal Compound

I have used a few different pastes over the years and nothing can compare to Arctic Silver.

Motherboard

Good looking board easy to work with for it's size. MSI has an easy to use bios, there are only a few issues. If you plan on uesing dual graphics cards then you will not be able to use the middle slot also lacking on fan connectors. Wish we could get rid of VGA ports and add a display port.

Memory

Fast, stable and good looks

Just make sure to check the speed in your bios, mine keeps reading as 1600

really weird choice on parts.. a10 for a $1k build is an odd choice, also that many fans are unnecessary. Definitely could've got a more effective build for that price.

Updated my parts list, removed what I already had.

i would add what you had but label it as purchased with a cost of 0 so we can still see what is in there.

I don't see why people make it a big deal, think of it this way, he could overclock it quite a bit, then, get an AMD gpu and run them in crossfire :D but, that is really the only justification, I have the same CPU, but then again, I bought mine prebuilt before I knew anything about computers really

Awesome build man. I've been looking to see if anyone has used the ostrog case with a larger 240/280mm water cooled rig since I want to do that myself. How was it installing the kit for you? I know with this case its a really tight squeeze inside that case and would probably only fit a 120mm.

Can you fit the fans inside? I have this case and it says it doesn't fit anything essentially besides the size of an Corsiar H80. I really want the Raijintek triton red though.

nice build looks clean just wondering why you used an r7 240 as some decent priced dedicated graphics cards perform well on this apu (no dual graphics)
