Description

Hello everyone!

This is second custom PC I built for my gaming/server that come with AMD FX Series for first time since I was Intel person. LOL It is reason why I built this gaming/server because it would save me electricity bill to give it combo server and gaming on Windows 10 Pro I got from dreamspark for free because I go community college taking Information System Technology major. That's why I got free stuff from dreamspark.

For now, I am still working in process to make sure everything is perfect.

If you have any question, feel free to comment below! :) And also let me know if I can improve the cable management because this case doesn't have other side for cable management.

Go with 8320E if you want low power consumption and more PCIe lanes!

So 8320E is good enough?

I think yes

I myself, as a cheaper solution would see how far you can push the clock on the FX 6300 and couple it with a Noctua NH-L12 low profile cooler, rather than buying a new chip. If you are concerned about noise, replacing the existing case fans with Noctuas, or other quiet alternatives will also help. You maybe pleasantly surprised how well the 6300 can handle higher spec GPUs if you can get it at 4.4/4.5GHz. I was only hitting max 60% CPU usage at 4.5GHz with an R9 380 4GB. SO there is some headroom.

I would overclock 6300 but it running stock Heatsink and cooler because it would risk overheating while overclocking. I favor stock. And I will look into that brand of fans to keep it quiet and more air go through.

Again personal opinion.. I would never by an AMD chip if I wasn't going to overclock. The value in these chips is to overclock, otherwise an intel i3 would usually be a better part. I do agree with you that overclocking on a stock cooler is hazardous. This is why you'll see after market coolers on most AMD gaming builds both for clocking and sound.

To be honest I like your build, just passing on thoughts to get as much value and performance out of your system rather than spending significantly more cash on upgrades.

I love Intel because it is always better than AMD but I go AMD because it is only I can afford and Intel is later. Also Nvidia and Intel too.

Nice build! Love those MSI parts, makes the color scheme go nicely with the AMD parts.

Nice MSI logo on the chassis ;) great build

YESSS! I love free college software. For cable management, I can't think of anything more than those 3m sticky cord clips. I just don't know whether they're affected by the heat inside the case.

I put cable on that metal rack using plastic zipper to hold these together make space let air go through. That case has 4 fans, two at front and two at back but they are not pin, they are using molex to power the fans. They are very quiet fans.

definitely wouldn't have gotten a dual 270, and definitely not a 6300 to support it, and since its gaming I would've gone with 1866 ram, don't know if it was faulty ram or not but my previous 1600 ram ran much worse than my 1866. I don't know much about SSDs yet but I know those HDDs are definitely great especially for value. Good PSU though. Not that its a bad rig, just could see a little more efficiency for around the same price :P Looks beautiful though. Good build.

Yes I understand I was plan to upgrade from 6300 to 8320E and R9 390 too. RAM will do 16GB 1866 doing it job for gaming and server at same time. Thank you!!

So .... you bought a server chassis and stuck it on the floor?

also those rear exhaust fan power wires are just screaming to have SOMETHING done with them.

It will not put on floor. It is while it testing, however, when it over, it will put back in rack mount to keep away from floor.

Did you mount it in a rack or does it just lie on your floor?

Wait lmao just read the comment section

It just put in rack mount yesterday after I installed everything, such as OS, server software, and gaming software.

Yes you better have to get these off the floor before it collect the dust. That rosewill server chassis has dust protection on front to keep off the dust inside. It is very nice feature.

For upgrade CPU, I might go with FX-8320E or FX-8370 with wraith cooler, and also graphics card, R9 360 to R9 390. If I upgrade these, then I would have to upgrade my PSU too.
