Description

I play games on this build, and do Photoshop work. I would recommend a powerful liquid cooler, as the case is small and the CPU runs really hot. I also would suggest getting a genuine copy of Windows, I started without one and had several issues getting the system running properly. The RAM in the build list is inaccurate, I have 1333MHz memory and it is noticable, as well as the low cache on the hard drive. The Video Card works well, and I cannot complain about the use of mantle. The TP-Link adapter is a bit dated, but you get what you pay for, I spent $9 on it and it is a bit slow. Overall this is a great build for the price (About $500 without OS).

Not bad for the price, actually. Great budget build.

Not a bad build at all. Great for the price, but please, get rid of that power supply. Like asap. CoolMax and Raidmax are not trustworthy PSUs. Go for a Corsair, Antec, or Thermaltake one. They may cost more, but it's worth it trust me. The one you have will most likely die out. Your CPU does have a very high idle temperature. I think you should get that checked out, because those are definitely not normal temps. Also, more pictures of the case/inside of the computer would be nice.

I plan on fixing the last bits and upgrading a little to sell this build, looking to upgrade. Thanks though, I was trying to avoid a higher price.

I know it's not the case causing those temps. You might of misaligned your cpu cooler. May I suggest a CNPS9900 Max, it will fit like a glove.

Thanks for that, I will definitely get one for my current build.

Did you touch the CPU lid at all? Oils in the skin can cause serious temp increases.

Does your GPU work already with that power supply? It says the minimum wattage is like 500W, and you're using a 350W PSU... I mean, if you're not gaming and pushing the GPU to work at full power, I suppose the 350W may be enough, but it still seems like it won't work all that well.
