Description

I originally built this computer with the intention of streaming, and it has worked flawlessly at it. I stream 1080 with zero problems on all the games i have thrown at it, on max settings. I play World of Warcraft at over 200 frames, and stream at over 180+. I play DayZ at max settings and also stream it at it. I have played battle field 3 and Crysis 3 at max settings no problem. Please don't tell me that the i5 3750k was a better choice in the comment section, because it wasn't. For gaming this was a better choice, and for streaming the 8 cores completely dominate it. ( I understand that it uses 2 cores for every task, do the math.. gaming plus streaming = 4 cores being used, which means an extra 4, for whatever else). When it comes to the point where any processor past a certain point of quality will run your games at max settings, i would prefer to shell the extra 100 bucks at a better gpu.

Great parts selection though I'm puzzled why so many people want to show off HORRIBLE cable management to the interwebs instead of taking a few minutes to upload quality cable management.... To me it makes no sense to do a build first with bad cable management which just means you have to take MORE time later to fix it.

In the pictures there was no cable management. I literally just threw the psu in and that was it. My intention while taking the pictures wasn't to upload them. It was just to send to a couple friends to inform them my parts arrived. In the next couple days i could upload recent pictures, i honestly don't think anyone cares enough though. Atleast i wouldn't. I appreciate the comment though.

Most computer builders care about cable management, as you can tell from the comments, it is important for airflow and dust as well as visually un appealing to look at. - You have a case that has great cable management and a window to show off the inside...

I understand, I'll throw updated pictures up soon. As for your build doesn't your side panel with 120mm fan make a good amount of noise? I know i was testing out different airflow setups and when i put my 120 sickleflow there it sounded like a spaceship. Was considering throwing a nut imbetween the screw and fan to space out the intake from the side panel.

The side fan is a 140mm and yes at full speed it does make a humming noise which was reduced by putting in washers to give a little gap.

Nice build! You should neaten up the cable management though. That case has many options to do so. Take your time on it, it will pay off in the end.

8350 FTW! Love the CPU/Board combo!

Also isn't that normal Corsair Vengeance(blue) in the pictures?

It is, I did get the blue one. The one i selected on the part picker site is not though, there were around 4 ones, after 2 times of picking wrong i just settled with someone random one. Same stats though.

Any issues with random freezing? I've got almost an identical build and can't figure it out

What is freezing? Your screen? If so then maybe a defective graphics card. If you have another graphics card lying around throw that in and see if it crashes, if so then try and get a replacement.

the entire system locks up (keyboard,mouse,screen)..have to do a hard reset.

Hmm, maybe a motherboard problem. Does it crash with a blue screen or anything of the sort?

  • 77 months ago

nope, literally just freezes. No codes or event monitor data or nothing. Seems like a software issue for that reason, but never can be sure

3570k is better..........lol

Right, that is why the fx 8350 gets better frames in nearly every single game, blows it away when streaming, is 100$ cheaper and destroys it on a 1v1 benchmark test. Go home fanboy

Amds cores are smaller than intels, thats why intel has less cores but still have the same power

  • 77 months ago

Amds have more cores with smaller cache count in each, intels have more for typically 4 cores. With multitasking the amd is better, because the extra cores allow extra power. IE playing a crysis 3 maxed out with an i7 3770k is like 18 frames average game play, then with the amd it's 20 frames (both with the same gpu, ram, ssd, psu, and same gameplay). At 1440p the i7 3770k is 11 frames while the amd is 13. So as the load gets heavier the damage dealt is larger.

Amd=more cores intel=strong cores

I'm thinking of getting that monitor. How good is it for gaming?
