Description

We built a budget computer for my brother. He gave me my first gaming rig, so we are just giving back. So far he loves it. Everything besides the case, fans and LED's are second had and ended up working really well for his needs. Our build log video is posted here on our Youtube Channel!

I watched it on your channel before i have even seen it here. Kinda wondering why you couldn't get the IO shield, and not being able to plug in your fan?

Matte black with green LEDs really rocks +1 lol when you notice there's no molex cable adapter.

Wait is that title a troll or just mistyped? I love the build but I still hate AsRock for putting that 3.0 header at the rear of the motherboard! It completely jacks up the look of any build using it!

At least its not my mobo where all the fan headers are located where the cpu header is, makes fan installation a nightmare.

hmmm that can be alleviated with a fan hub though ..... there's no fix for stupid on this motherboard though. I'm still trying to figure out how to make it not have to wrap around my gpu.

Nice! Stock cooler should go IMO. Are you running HDDs in RAID 0, RAID 1, or just normally? +1

didnt you have the Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs. issue ? if so how did you fix it? please help

I didnt have to update the bios. It come default ready to run vishera. I wouldnt recommend any 125w CPUs on the motherboard though, especially if you want to overclock.

Thanks for the suggestion! Which mother board do you recommend? I want to use the FX-6300 cpu. Here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/kjJDqk

Original: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NDfcQ7

With 1TB HDD and original SSD: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dwV9xr

With 1TB HDD as only storage: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NFd2qs

I wasn't sure if by "add a 1 TB hard drive instead" you wanted only that for storage or to replace the 2 160GB HDDs and leave the SSD, so I created both lists.

Also, I couldn't help but suggest that a few things be changed... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/fK82qs With this, for $60 instead of $40, the SSDs capacity is quadrupled in capacity with a speed boost too. Also for $30 instead of $25 the RAM is doubled from 4GB to 8GB. I suggested a different case, costing $40 instead of $80. This case is also made by Corsair, has a large window, and looks very professional. If a lot of stuff is going in it though, you may find it lacking in space. I also swapped in an AMD Radeon R7 370 2GB GDDR5 graphics card because the R7 270X isn't widely available new. If you're overclocking, be sure to throw in an after-market cooler. It should be noted that the people who built this bought most of the parts used or already had them (I didn't see the referenced video, so I'm not sure about the finer minutiae.), and you may want to try doing this yourself.

Hope this helps! (BTW, please don't post things three times. You replied to both LiBobo and TechTested with this request. And you added an independent comment.)
