This machine is used as a super high performance gaming machine with performance for everything else. Sometimes the machine can act as a very low powered space heater but I actually want that from my machine. I use this machine to play games at max settings along with other CPU and CPU intensive applications. The things that worked nicely and well are installing the CPU, Motherboard, RAM, HDD and cables. The things that I had trouble with was the GPU which barely fit into the computer and I had trouble slotting it into the motherboard. The problems with this computer is that the HD audio for the front panel audio ports seem to have lots of interference from the GPU when running. I've plugged the headphones in the back of the computer which makes it work like it did before. The GPU is hard to install for me.
You may get lower CPU temps than what it says. The reason why it's so high is because Prime 95 with the max heat load was tested on the CPU.
