This is my most recent build. Used mostly for photo/video rendering. Not a gaming machine. Corsair cases are great. I would highly recommend for a first time build, if you have the extra $. Very easy for cable management. I have been using AMD CPUs for years without any issues. This is the second time I have this used Asus Sabertooth MoBo. Solid board with great features. Foolproof BIOS updating. Probably more RAM than I need. But there are 4 slots, so I filled em! No planning on OC the cpu, but will change to Corsair or Zalman water cooling unit if I do.
I will add benchmarks and temps after I have a few hours on this rig.
