A 990fx-ud3 is just as reliable. He could have spent less and got a 7950 or 7870xt.

I got it open box for really cheap $143 (factory warranty still applied), also I got the 7870 for cheap $189

You should work on the cable management so you have more unrestricted airflow. If you don't live near a microcenter, this is a great build with great finds on prices. The EVGA PSU is a good PSU but not great. You could have gotten an xfx, corsair HX/TX, or OCZ which are better and the same price.

Do you still have your plastic clips that screw in the mobo and hold the heatsink/fan. I lost mine and I really need some.

Yeah i agree that you should not have gone with the sabertooth

otherwise pretty cool build.

maybe a bit overpowered on the psu side.

I got the sabertooth openbox from micro center for the price of M5a99x, that's why I went with the sabertooth, plus it's still had the 5 years factory warranty, so it was win-win

No, they are not high. 49 At full load iand a few degrees above room temperature is great.

I mean for an H110. I would expect around 45C load temps, that's why I said they are a little high but completely safe. I expected that cooler to produce more overclocking headroom than it is.

Those are surprisingly low. My stock clocked 3770k with a significantly lower TDP has much higher temps. I hit 50s while playing games, but Corsair says that's normal.

Ivy bridge runs far hotter than the 8350 does. FX cpus can't go over 62C, Ivy bridge can go up to like 95C.

FX chips run hotter but AMD CPUs have always had strange temperature sensors that show lower temps.

My FX CPU went over 62C on a good few occasions and I had no issues with it. My 6300 had a far higher TDP than my 3770k.

That said, according to AMD themselves, as well as a number of other people, AMD CPUs, specifically the FX ones, don't report their temperature's correctly anyway.

that build was not anywhere close to that number, PC part picker not accurate, I got some parts from amazon for dirt cheap, others used, only the one that matters new for the warranty.
