Hello everyone, this build I made about 3 months ago, but I'm back again to edit what I've already posted about this thing. I have a few changes to make regarding my opinion on this computer. First off, this thing is an absolute BEAST, without the Headphones, Keyboard, Mouse, and OS, you're looking at around 1300$, I know it seems pretty pricey but you won't regret. Believe me when I say, this is the absolute fastest computer I've ever used, the parts work in sync with eachother like no machine I've ever seen. I've not had a single problem with this beautiful desktop thus far.
When I first started gaming with the GPU, It was slow, but now it works like an angel. I believe it just needed to be driven in if you know what I mean. But honestly, this computer. The speed is impeccable. I can't stress this enough. It may be the SSD I installed the OS on or the Computer its self, but either way. This thing is literally perfect for any purpose a Gamer could desire, not to mention the Hot Swap for laptop drives or desktop drives on top, no need to restart the computer, simply plug in and pull out. Works like a charm. All the features this Desktop is capable of is absolutely astounding.
I literally cannot think of any cons this thing has yet, not a 1. Besides the fans being a little noisier then I'd like, but you can even adjust that with 1 simple button on top of the PC. Haha, the changing LED lights are a Plus, but the most Graphic eating games still run at 60fps from what I've been able to see. FL Studio runs flawlessly, including streaming HD on Twitch, while playing a game, on skype, watching a 4k youtube video.
It's miraculous, that this thing is able to compete with about anything I put it up to the challenge to do.
Only a single con now that I really think about it, I still don't know what the core temp is of the processor. From what I've always seen, nothing above 50 degrees Celsius, so no problem?
Not only does AMD's FX8350 come with an 8 core for cheap, but at 4.0ghz for a little under 200$, already unlocked and ready to be overclocked at a seconds notice! Pretty spectacular, I have to admit still, I have never been able to put my CPU under full load. Not yet. Ram began at 1688mhz, simple change of the bios set it to the right 1866mhz though. So that doesn't matter,
Boot time is literally seconds, due to UEFI dual bios and the r9 280x being dual bios compatible with a push of a button. So worth it. Regardless, This PC is definitely the fastest PC I have ever used though, multitasking functionality is unreal. Gaming is fantastic it definitely gets the Job done.
If you want a FAST PC that can play about any game currently out there for PC, this is the setup for you. If you're ever lacking Graphics (GPU) Power, simply just crossfire or SLI another card, since it's compatible with both! (Though in that case, you probably wanna get a better power supply, I'll have to upgrade if I ever decide to crossfire or sli) So go for the 1000w or higher.
Astounding, Quick, Low Temps
Great for the Price
I underestimated this Motherboard. Definitely worth a 5 Star.
If I was to put 4 star, I would just be hating the Brand. So in all honesty, 5 stars should be rated on this, they are good cards, beautiful inside too.
The speed is well worth the price, beyond what words can say.
So far so good.
This Card definitely holds its own, gaming, music creation, or otherwise. It's perfect. Even with just 1.
Hot Swap Deck, Extra LED's, Fans, Buttons for Reset or Colour, Low and High Fan Speed, you can't really beat this beautiful thing, especially the headset holder.
I should have went with a higher power supply.
8.1 Pro 64-Bit, Plain no Extra **** = Worth it.
Pretty good at maintaining stability and speed without extra noise
They kinda suck.
Damn good keyboard, spilled lemonade inside the keys, they still work fine. (No Stick)
Scroll Wheel broke on me, not even from gaming. Got my replacement, it was DOA. Finally I now have a wireless and wired mouse from razor, because they messed up so bad.
These Headphones are godly, but not without the Synapses system.
