Description

After a month of figuring out what pieces of hardware were the best bang for my buck, I've finally completed my build. I can play Metro 2033 on high settings at around 50 fps. This PC was mainly built for gaming. I am fifteen years old, and I payed for all of the computer. I did go higher than 4.5 GHz on my CPU, but I decided that I prefer the lower temps at 4.5 GHz. I did not see much gain in speed by going any higher anyways. I'm not sure why the first picture is sideways so sorry about that. Enjoy.

P.S. The heatsink, PSU, case, and fans all came together. I bought all of it for $55 dollars off of kijiji. That's why some of them are $0.

Nice build, I would've chosen different fans other than the Noctuna's though - not a performance issue, but I'd keep the black color scheme.

I know they look awful, but they were free!

Very nice rig! +1 Can I ask you if you stress tested your CPU and Memory at that clock with that cooler? Like with Prime95, all three tests. I just built a very similar rig for a friend and I could not get past 4.0 GHz without stability issues. It may be the cheaper mobo though.

I've stress tested it for 16 hours on prime95 and for an hour running prime95 and Unigine Heaven at the same time. The Gigabyte GA-990-FXA UD3 board is a beast mobo for overclocking.

That case-combo was a STEAL, super jealous, I'm guffa-ing over it, like... omg.

Other than that prices are pretty standard. You did a really good job on cable management as well.

Is there room for memory sticks with large heat spreaders with that cpu/cooler combo? just wondering since I am thinking about getting those 2 parts as well.

If you are using the same motherboard and heat sink, then no, the RAM will not fit. If you are using a different ATX board that has the dim slots slightly to the right then I think that it may just fit, as long as its not too large in width.
