Primarily I use this rig for gaming and soon recording and editing for YouTube. I can max out all the games I play (Fallout 4, Black Ops 3, Grid Auto Sport etc.) at a stable 60 FPS and up. This build has been a major headache from having to trouble shoot installing Windows for 7.5 hours and having to make unexpected last minute upgrades. Once it was all done, it's been a beast that I have fallen in love with. I apologize for the horrendous cable management as there is no space or way to get the cables behind the motherboard tray. Note that my buddy gave me his AMD FX-8350 heat sink as it is an upgrade from the cooler that comes with the FX-6300.
