Description

This build is great. Noisy while downloading but cool and quiet while playing games and browsing the internet. The Raidmax Super Hurricane was a great first case to work in. While there is some trouble popping in the io shield, there is ample space (the blue side window doesn't hurt either). Build time: 3 hrs, Troubleshooting: 2 days (read the manual for connections), Looks: 10/10 IGN, PCPARTPICKERPRICE: $659.56, Actual Price: $639, BIOS UPDATED OUT OF BOX reason for name: BLUE BEETLE the super hero!! please leave comments :)

I would definitely get a cooler for that FX8350, just because it can get hot and especially loud.

I think I will. I'm 14 though so I can't really get one now. Are there any coolers coming out soon that would be beasts.

If your on a budget just get a cooler master tx3, It's around $20

I love that you distinguish this. I wish more people would for those who do not enter in custom prices.

Also, nice CPU, GPU combo ;)

I'm getting very playable 1080p gaming on The Witcher 3 here with a similar setup.

Thank you. I didn't initially have the 8350 in mind but I found a combo on Newegg so I bought it.

Thanks!

What's your setup, any overclock. High, or ultra I would like to know because I'm not sure about getting the Witcher 3 and would like to know fps possible

I don't touch high. I'm low-mid settings, but getting a consistent 45 sometimes 60fps. I still get about 30fps on straight mid settings, but I prefer a smoother experience than that. Still an absolutely gorgeous game even on the settings I play.

  • I do overclock my gpu from 975 to 1050mhz, but I don't overclock the cpu. Temps normally stay under 60 on cpu with the 212 and the gpu sometimes tags 70c.

I am going 10 on 29, tbh mostly because of the start button. Windows 8.1's start button menu was not meant for non-touch-screen PCs.

Theres a free program called start menu 8 that allows you to change that to a more classic style like w7. I use it. Works great.

Also not everyone gets the install for w10 on 29th. Depends on when you reserved your copy.

Nice build btw. Any reason why you went with the mobo you did? The 8350 is an excellent overclocker even on air with those 8 cores on load.

I use classic shell and it also works well.

classic shell?

It adds the classic windows 7 button at the bottom left corner of your desktop and the menu that it would display.

Ik about the start button menu but I really do like the windows 10 start button more (from what I've seen), I think it's a good mix.

I reserved a copy on another computer will that work?

Thank you. I went for the mobo because it came in a combo and it fit my color scheme. Will it be impossible to overclock on this board?

as for the reserved copy for windows 10, 1 per pc.

not intended to overclock on that board, particularly the power deliver and cooling to your vrms. Can be done in bios, but you will get something modest. just pay attention to board temperatures.

Ok, thanks for the info. Does the same go for the gpu? (because I want to overclock to a 270x)
