I had been out of the building game for a long time and took a shot in the dark at building a new rig to replace my old one. The parts aren't awesome, but it does everything i need it to do.
Use: VMs, some streaming, light gaming, and support work
Temps are core temps.
Originally got the 9370, but very quickly realized i couldn't deal with the hear so swapped to an 8350. I needed something with enough cores to be able to provision VMs for some pretty hefty dual quad core servers.
Really good at keeping the 8350 cool, even when OCd, crappy install instructions though
It's gerd sterf!!!
Originally got this as it was the only one microcenter had in my price range that would support the 9370, I like it though and decided to keep it when I swapped for an 8350 because of the UEFI bios. I dislike the location of the front audio port but ehh shiz happens
Went cheap but it's pretty decent ram
Already had it so I used it in this build
Needed something big, but not huge so I opted for the 500GB since I already had a 1TB that is on it's last hair.
Great for the games I do play, and has some pretty cool features for the price point
This is the one part i wish I would have done more research on. Originally i was going to get this case in red to match my color scheme, but they were out so i went with the black version. It's very tight and there are no options for water-cooling on a double 120mm rad because the Ram is right against the top of the case. Overall my least favorite part of the build, but I will replace it eventually.
Went cheap, it does what I need it to do and seems to have good voltages for now. I run my PC all the time so I often replace this part
Really good!!! lol
Very stylish but not that amazing and pretty noisy
Went cheap just needed something to turn those suckers down without having to constantly reboot and modify bios settings for temps.
