Can you believe it? it's been already 6 months.

So anyways, I got some bad news for ya, my FX-6300 died because I set the voltage way too high. (1.5 volts @4.7Ghz) So I decided to return it and get my money back. (Shout out to Microcenter's return policy :P) Now that was probably one of the worse moments because I knew for the fact that the CPU won't survive but oh well, lesson learned. This is why if you are a beginner you should start with a cheap PC first to get some experience before going all out. Now I wasn't really that concerned since the FX-6300 is cheap to replace but still it was nerve racking. I decided to upgrade to an 8 core CPU, now I have two choices either choose the the 8320 or the 8320E, I did some research and found out that the E stands for efficient and clocked a little lower compared to the normal 8320 it's also cheaper and has a lower TDP. Now the reason why I got the 8320E is because it's a lot more efficient and I only got a 500W PSU, other than that it's still an FX CPU meaning you can overclock it to match the 8320 or even the 8350. I was able to overclock this baby @4.2Ghz, I don't wanna risk it. The voltage is also lower @1.187 volts. I also got a new mobo because why not? It looks nice and supports SLI so I can do an SLI in the future.

Now what are my plans in the future? Well I'm trying to save up for an MacBook Air so I can try MacOS for first time and presumably I might need it for college. (I'm 14 BTW) Now don't call me stupid because I'm planning to buy a Macbook, I just think they look simple and unique. I also like the MacOS because it's really efficient etc. Now I can also buy an GTX 1070 or an RX 480 but most likely my CPU will bottleneck so no luck there. I think for now this build is totally okay. I mean, I just wanna save up some money and start thinking about the future.

If I had the money, I would definitely move to Intel and just go ALL OUT! :D thanks for dropping by :P

Also if you guys didn't know I use this build for rendering stuff.

What I use

Sony Vegas Pro 13 720p, 1080p, 1440p, & 4k (haven't tried it yet.)

Photoshop CC

Adobe Effects

Cinema 4D

What were your temps? 1.5v should be fine if it is cooled properly. That is not enough to ruin a cpu.

The temps were somewhere between 17 to 70 degrees Celsius. It could be my mobo.

Huh? That is a huge range. What program was used to check temps? Amd temps need to be read in a special way.

Core temp does not monitor AMD cpus correctly.

Any CPU temp program recommendation?

I was thinking about getting that processor for 3d rendering as well but just settled with the i7-6700k and gtx 1070. How are your render times?

They are actually not bad, rendering 20min 1080p video takes about 25-30mims which isn't that bad considering it's age, but I definitely recommend that i7 6700k
