Description

So this was a computer that I just decided to build because I game sooo much and was looking for a really beefy desktop but for a reasonable price. Buuut when i realized there was few desktops that i could find that really had what I wanted... I just decided to look up how to build my own! Long story short about 3 weeks after loads of research and graduation money spent, this beaut was born into the world! Specs: Cpu- amd fx 8350 8 core gpu- msi gtx 960 4gb version psu- corsair 600w semi modular Ram- soon to be 16 gb ripjaws x 1600hz...atm 8gb mobo- msi 970 gaming amd3+ Case-thermaltake a31 mid tower Storage- 1 Tb seagate barracuda 3.5" 7200rpm optical drive... nothing special hahaha other accessories listed in the parts list!

First ever build

Phew... that was a long read. Sorry, I'm just teasing ya. :P

Good job with your first build, and whenever you get the time. Try to pull those extra wires you have dangling around some more. If you have any spare zip-ties or velcro straps to use so it can help with the airflow and it's a good habit to keep it tidy. It doesn't need to be perfect but again it's not that bad either so you don't need to change it instantly, so no rush here. Since there aren't many wires left over to pull.

Again good job with your first build! Enjoy your new computer!

I second this man's opinion. Whenever the OP has time he should do a little bit of tidying up

I did some recently and I can honestly say my GPU temps are down quite a bit (although i did put a fan under the GPU so maybe that did something :P)

What do you need this for? I'm going to guess that you're going to be doing some productivity since you have 16GB of RAM and an FX-8350.

you listed two 2 x 4gb sets of ram but i only see 2 sticks of ram in your photos. Do you have 2 8gb sticks and just selected the wrong option or one 2 x 4gb set of sticks and just added double on accident?

Definitely not a bad little computer. :3 The one suggestion I can give you is that AMD processors tend to run pretty hot and their stock coolers don't really cut it when push comes to shove. So I would get a third party cooler for it. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO seems to be pretty popular.

Thank you!!! I honestly was just on newegg looking around because mine was getting pushed and i could tell. I would run prototype 2 on high settings and the processor fan sounded like it was about to lift the whole case of the table!!! Hahaha

I think league maxes out at 300fps may go over a little bit but still maxes out so a little overkill for just that game

you can have a lower spec computer that still will get 300 fps in league

Hahaha yeah that was just the funniest title I could think of. I actually play many other games such as prototype 2, bioshock infinite, h1z1, ark survival evolved, battlefield bad company 2, Cod Bo 2, and many many others since the summer steam sale just got done... 10/10 would drain my bank acct again for the steam sale
