Description

Built this rig as a budget rig for my son. So far he's enjoyed it and I'm pretty happy with the parts. Second build I've done in a Phanteks Case and that is definitely my new go-to company for cases.

I had quite a few people who asked for some performance benchmarks so I ran some today. Please keep in mind these are just basic benchmarks, I used presets for the quality and didn't change any other options unless it was to turn off v-sync. All games were ran on 1080p resolution and with the exception of Arkham Origins v-sync was disabled.

  • Batman: Arkham Origins on Maximum graphics settings -- 60 FPS avg
  • Far Cry Primal on Very High settings -- 62 FPS avg
  • Shadows of Mordor on Very High settings -- 72 FPS avg
  • Fallout 4 on High settings -- 57 FPS avg
  • Doom on Ultra settings -- 85 FPS avg

I'm very happy with the performance and quite a bit surprised at a couple of these titles performing like they did on this system, but I think it just solidifies the parts used.

um is it just me or does the video card power cords fall to the bottom of the case and not plugged into the psu? other then that looks really good!

It's one of those PSU cables that has a "Daisy chain" for another you

I'll run some benchmarks in the next couple of days. I have Far Cry Primal, Doom, and Fallout 4 handy to do some quick benchmarks on.

How well it does it play games? My mate is looking to get rid of his old laptop ad get a proper desktop but only has £500 to spend it on, I told him to get a 460 and an i5, but how well does an i3 and a 470 perform?

Those red LEDs on your white case look damn sexy

I have a question does the motherboard have build in wireless network adapter

joshdcsc submitter 2 Builds 1 point 30 months ago

It does not. He's using a TP-link archer USB adapter right now but it's still getting 280 Mbps on ookla.

Great build, you have used a lot of good bang for your buck parts. Only negative I have is that hanging cord and my ocd

joshdcsc submitter 2 Builds 1 point 30 months ago

I'm going to get some extensions for the 24 pin and GPU so that will be fixed. Just not a high priority right now.
