Description

A friend showed me a year ago how cool gaming pc builds are and how much better it is than a console. I then wanted to build one so bad, but.... I had no money. After a year of saving I finally had enough to build this and with the help of a few sales I finished it.

Through picking parts I had help from y'all awesome people on this site as well as a few friends who knew a lot than me on the subject. I think I picked all the best parts for my own needs. Obviously the question of 970 vs. 390 came up and I think I made the right choice. I don't care for rants about how the 970 is so much better or visa versa. I am happy with my choices.

I use this mainly for gaming and browsing the interwebs. It crushes every game I play at 1080p and is a blast. Putting the parts together was quite frustrating at first, but really fun experience. Overall I love this pc and finally glad to be a part of the master race.

A warm welcome into the master race, apprentice. May your frames be high and your temperatures be low, my friend.

Welcome young one... Lol Nice build, you might want to look into premium single braided cables for your PSU. It makes it look cleaner and with a NZXT case it will be a breeze. I'm personally a AMD fan so I approve of this build but I do believe that Geforce GTX GPUs are awesome as well. Have you overclocked the CPU yet? With a watercooling loop I wouldn't be surprised to see that at 4.0GHz. Personally I have my AMD FX-4350 4.2GHz at 4.7GHz watercooled and it gets hot but not anything for concern yet.

Haven't overclocked yet. No need for it right now, but I plan too eventually. The temperatures have been really cool while gaming so I definitely have some room to be able to overclock it in that regard.

My next goal is to add some case LED lights and definitely get some custom cables for it. Just need the money for that now... kinda spent it all on the PC :/

Their CPU's are pretty mediocre, but their GPUs are good. There really isnt a point in buying nvidia unless you are getting a 980ti class card as it is better than the fury x. Their drivers aren't bad either.

JustBekrillin I do agree that AMD products run hotter but "the worst drivers ever" ended when they released the new software a few months ago and give it a few more months with Polaris coming out then the processors will be at par if not better than nvidia like it was a few years ago. Nvidia makes great GPUs with low temps but that doesn't essentially mean they are better. Plus when I first started using AMD products they were at par with nvidia verses now.

Plus Nvidia is a very scummy company and strait up lied about their cards with the whole 970 VRAM issue. They have also been using pictures of the 980m in their presentations about pascal claiming that it is a pascal die. Cant wait for polaris and zen.

Some pretty good part choices for the large part. That forces me to upvote it.

Outstanding build! About the same specs as mine in my first PCPP build but that's none of my businesses.

NIce build overall although imo not the best case for an R9 390. Case airflow not optimal which the MSI 390 would really benefit from.

thanks. I know its not the best airflow for AMD cards, but I loved the looks of the case and the card itself hasn't gotten so hot that I am worried yet and I've been playing fallout and some other games on 1080p. I am not worried about the card getting to hot right now.

Running temps are subjective... it's what you can tolerate..Enjoy your new gaming rig.

I've been looking for a build for a while now and I might just have to get this. It's in my price range and looks utterly phenomenal. Will order this build soon!

Hi there, sweet build..... This might be a noob question, but where is the USB 3.0 header on the motherboard for the front 2x USB 3.0 headers on the case?
