First let me say that I am a gaming grandma on SS, I wanted a machine I could upgrade for the fun of it. I spent most of money on the GPU. But I had to stick to my budget, so bought according to cost, quality or bundle price. I bought it all from NewEgg to make my life simple and all of it came in excellent shape and all working as it should. The greatest piece of the whole rig is the case. I have always had HP machines, with no room for much of anything, this case is a dream case, plus it looks beautiful. I have to learn how to really oc. I set my cpu up to 4.2ghz in the Asrock bios area and let the system figure out the rest for now. It shows as running 4.2ghz on Core Temp. I have never seen it over 52c in any game, I got to 52c using a load test. But as I said I'm just learning and I mainly have to learn how to use all the data I have saved. If someone can tell me how to get the 3DMark Benchmark Results shown here Extreme, Performance and Entry Preset Score, I'll run them. I have run the free version of Valley Benchmark, Heaven Benchmark and Cinebench its fun. Also before anyone mentions it, I had another 500g hd which I put in this machine from my old machine.
