Don't listen to the haters, bro. This build is really cool because it has an 8350. +1

FX YEAH!!! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Just for clarification : you built a custom hardline cooling for an FX-8350?

To be fair, it's got a crazy TDP at stock speeds.

Plus I've seen someone hardline a Pentium (might have been a Celeron)

If they have fun with it, I mean why not?

i really wanted some hardliner but i was on a budget and mind this was almost 2 years ago so it was higher end then it is today also the TDP is good at stock speeds like said by synchro

I mean, it's still really capable. Sure, for the price you can purchase a Ryzen, but only four cores. Water cooling an 8350 can let you achieve some pretty insane things, too, like a potential 5Ghz from a base 4.

Yes, this CPU is obsolete, however it is still an 8-core 120 dollar cpu (when it isn't on sale-usually is)

Another thing to note is that this uses DDR3 ram which comes way cheaper than DDR4.

If he were to purchase a Ryzen, it would be the 3 or maybe the 5, which is considered the "low end" of the spectrum. He maybe just wanted something higher end, despite its age. He probably just wanted to experiment with custom loops on something with better overclocking capabilities.

Looks good, reminds me of a wall mount build, which is something i really want someday.

Also, Ryzen 2 is coming out soon, hint hint.

I don't know exactly what I'm looking at here, but I need this in my life. Now.

How is the GSkill Trident X RAM sticks working for you? Did the Asus board see them at start-up? What speed (Ghz/Mhz) are you able to run them at?

I have a couple Gigabyte MoBo's given to me last month & I'm thinking of getting some more build-practice in before the AM3+ becomes totally antique! The Qualified Vendors List (QVL) from Gigabyte hasn't been updated in years, but I am finding accounts here & there of newer DDR3 RAM working okay on 990 & 970 MoBo's. Something I did note on the QVL for my 970 MoBo, is that all speeds Greater than 2Ghz I guess are, "(downgrade to DDR3 2000 MHz)" to run on the system. Huh.

Nice Build! Thank you for sharing it here!!

they are running at stock speeds and my board saw them at startup
