Description

This build started out as a build for a friend that wanted a cheap system to play BF4. Then he changed his mind and ordered a powerPC off walmarts site. So i got stuck with all the parts as i started building it. The MB was a asus bord but.. I like the ASRocks so i swapped it out. The extra 8gb of ram are from a old build i had and just pulled the ram from to use for now. The system has been over clocked to 4.9GHz and is stable with a 1 day prime95 test.. Just ask for more info and ill be happy to tell.

You'll want to move the second DIMM to the right most slot because RAM works best with balanced channels. Beyond that I can simply say that this build is very interesting. It's not bad but a description would be helpful to understand some of the part choices.

Could have gotten an FX-6300 for that price, but it doesn't matter too much.

+1 for a great build!

I forgot to edit the price when building the sheet. Only paid 97 at Micro Center

Its how they sell them in best buy. It has the dual fans. had a gift card there so no money out of my pocket :D

You need to put down actual prices before we can tell you whether this is a good build or not. If those graphics cards did actually cost you 250 each, then uh... Bad. Really bad. You could have just gotten a 780GTX for that much. Heck, I would opt for a 770GTX over two of those, but that's just me.

DONT PUT PUMP HIGHER THAN THE RADIATOR! You need the radiator do be higher than the pump so that gravity doesn't push the water down.

Why 2 R9's? Why not just go with the cheaper (and similar performing) 7800 or 7900 series graphics cards?

What CPU cooler is that? Could you link it?

This is the CPU cooler. It was made for the FX8150 as a bundle to help users when over clocking. http://www.ebay.com/itm/121259027096?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Well I like the selection. A good processor, good ram, and a great motherboard. The SSD is a bit overpriced, could have gotten a Kingston or Samsing 840 for half. I like the dual gpu's. Overall a good build.

The SSD was giving to me from a friend whos computer i helped fix. I wan not sure what price to go by as its my first ever SSD.

32 GB of ram should not be your priority, a different CPU would be the first order of buisness, FX-6300?

The CPU is on the list to upgrade. Like i said in the disc this pc was being build for a friend for a chep gaming pc and they bailed on me so i had no choice to keep it for my self as it was already put together. Im going to to get the FX-8350

I will be getting the FX-8350 The ram is nice to have when editing game maps like Arma 2/3.

this is the most interesting build i've come across so far. Crossfire'd 270X's with an FX-4350... not sure how that would work out in the long run. do you have any plans to upgrade to an eight-core CPU?

  • 70 months ago

Sure do. Going with the FX-8350 when i have the funds

if you're going to be doing some overclocking, go with an FX-8320. it has the same potential as the FX-8350, and it's about $30-50 cheaper (depending on when and where you get it). it's just clocked lower due to AMD's binning processes.

What are the OC speeds you have seen for the 8320?.

Im not even sure im gonna over clock the 8 core one to much. Right now i have the 4350 pushed hard and shes doing pretty good. Ill probable kill some time and push it harder try to hit the 5.4 mark lol

OC levels on an FX-8320 are similar to if not the same as an FX-8350. some people have gotten lucky and pushed it to 5GHz. basically, all FX-series chips are exactly the same; they're just trimmed down according to how they're binned.

Good but I would not have gone for an SSD, should have got a better CPU. You could have got an 8320 without the SSD

The SSD was giving to me by a friend, I didnt know what to put for the price or if i should even of put one.

How's the xfire working out for you? I have the MSI 270x and am considering going the same route in a month or two...

I'm loving it. Every driver update keeps bumping the FPS up in BF4 and every thing else i play.

Whats so bizarre about my hardware.

People might consider this unbalanced due to the lackluster performance of the FX-4350 when you stack it up against dual R9-270Xs. Most of the time you're better off with a single higher performance GPU over buying two new GPUs for XFire/SLI but acquisition of parts all comes down to happenstance. Also people on this site tend not to understand how minimal improvements in RAM have been over the last 5 years. But hey if the build works for your purposes then more power to you.
