Description

I wanted a gaming PC for the next upcoming games that will be coming out. (Battlefield 4, etc. etc.) That could at least play them in high, thru max settings. I went with AMD because they are cheaper then Intel, and work almost just as good while saving $800. I'm going with NVIDIA Graphics cards, for the better performance on them. After receiving the parts I decided to go back and return the 670 for a 770, for the extra $80. Not only for the better benchmarking, but just in case future games move away from the 600 series. I built the computer in a single day. (About 5 hours max.) and I couldn't be happier. It OC's itself without ever pushing past 50 Degrees Celsius.

How is that motherboard holding up? We share the same processor/mobo and I've been a little bit nervous about running a 8320 on it.

Sorry for the late reply. But personally I've had no problems with it. And with the smart OC genie, I don't have to worry about doing manual overclocking as it auto clocks for me, without ever going over 60 degrees Celsius. I haven't been much into the PC world yet, so maybe I might be bias a bit. But for a "Budget" build, it's great.

Did you like your case?

I like the case, it has a lot of built in fans, with a small control of turning them on and off at will. Even though the LEDs have to be on if you are running them, but they provide excellent air flow, as well as built in dust filters.

why not just use 'Archangel' as the computer name? +1 bud nice build, also how is that mobo?

Hm, maybe I should use that for the name. Also the mobo is nice, it can either be manually OC'd or you can set it up to automatically do it for you. I'm manual putting it on, but I notice it kicks it back whenever it starts getting to high up.

Oh man, no wonder why I never got notifications... I accidently never logged back in.

So I realize this build was built awhile ago but I have a quick question. I used this case on my first and only build and the case fans didn't work... I can't find a power connector for them and I tried returning the case to get a new one but I couldn't do that. I currently have 2 aftermarket fans running (Front and Back), GPU fans and my stock CPU cooler. It stays cool but I have to run the fans at close to maximum speed just to keep my parts safe. It's also super loud. I'm seriously debating on buying a new case and putting this one off to the side but I'd love to save money and get those fans working. Any ideas?
