Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU for the bang! Also great overclock potential!

CPU Cooler

Works as expected and keeps temperature to the minimum

Motherboard

Has been two years and it still works like new

Memory

Cool design and color. And really good price

Video Card

Does what I want to do but not the best

Case

The look is great and it comes with 5 built in fans which is great! But the organization of the case components is very poor.

Power Supply

Great power supply for small purpose personal PCs

Keyboard

Really good looks and functionalities

Cheapest 8320 I've ever seen man, well done. Same with mobo, good price. Killer build for a killer price! Well done!

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

I myself got this bundle deal too, it's pretty sweet isn't it :D

is 15c really idle for you?? I'm getting 40c and it sucks..

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

yeah I get around 15c-20c when idle. And when opening applications and games, it goes upto 40c. Are you using a stock fan like I am?

Vainslay 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

yes, though I'm looking at some aftermarket heatsinks to buy soon...hopefully

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

yeah me too. i have planned on getting CM EVO 212 sometime soon

Really like the look of that case. How did you like building in it?

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

For first time builder, it was pretty good working with it. There was enough room behind the case for hiding cables and the side fans keep the system cool. The only trouble I had was with the front power buttons but overall good case good looks

Bojarzin 1 point 37 months ago

This is a late reply but I am in the works of building a computer and this is the case I was looking at. Some people have been saying they didn't like it much, but you seemed to. May I ask what your issue with the power buttons was?

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 37 months ago

the issue was the power connectors were not connected to the inputs on the case. In most cases, this isn't an issue. So to fix this all you do is open the top part of the case and then connect those pins.

MrGromit 1 point 48 months ago

A lot of power for good price: Nice job.

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

Thanks alot!! Hope it turned out pretty goood!!

Nice build, at a very good price! +1

Same case as mine, don't see a lot of builds with it :)

Deserter15 1 point 48 months ago

Great build. The only thing I would have done differently was added a ssd.

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

I wanted to but I was on a budget. I plan on doing it soon

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 48 months ago

here is what i am planning on upgrading. getting an ssd, cm evo 212 cpu cooler, and some quiet led fans

Taurasaurus 1 Build 1 point 47 months ago

Did you have to update the BIOS prior to using Vishera CPUs, and have you done any overclocking? BTW nice build

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 47 months ago

no I updated my BIOS later. At the time of purchase, PCPP did not show any incompatibility issues. And I have not done any overclocking. But hoping to do it soon once I find a tutorial

gregkolodny 1 point 47 months ago

Very nice budget build, especially for a first time. Pretty damn good cable management.

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 47 months ago

thanks alot!!

Camboy05 1 point 46 months ago

How is the cable management on that case?

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 46 months ago

its not too great but good for the price. if your going with semi/modular PSU, you can manage but otherwise you would have cable hanging everywhere

Jozmtr 1 point 45 months ago

I'm honestly deciding this GPU or the GTX 760. Would you mind giving me some benchmarks?

:D +1

hitmaniac submitter 1 Build 1 point 45 months ago

According to the benchmarks, GTX 760 is powerful than the R9 270 and also bit powerful than R9 270(x). Since I was on budget, R9 270 was a better choice for $180 compared to GTX 760 which was around $250. Overall, at that price I think 270 has better price-performance ratio whereas 760 is around 10% stronger than 270 (overclocked)

Jozmtr 1 point 45 months ago

Okay! :L
