Description

This PC was made for General Use. I use it for a variety of things from Gaming to Video Editing/Producing. I like the fact of having a lot of RAM for the simple fact of being able to Multi-Task without a hitch.

The reason I went with the 650 and not something higher is because I could not find anything that has 2x HDMI Output within my price range.

I am only running the Stock Cooler at this time with what will be a total of 7 Fans on the case.

The reason on the amount of Hard Drives is for the simple fact of Storage. I do keep backups of lots of different things from pictures to movies.

Also, when researching parts I looked at benchmarks of the parts for Mark / Price.

Lowest CPU Temp: 7C Highest CPU Temp(Prime95 - Simple FFT): 70C

Lowest GPU Temp: 24C Highest GPU Temp(3DMark Extreme - Benchmark): 57C

I hope this helps with your feedback.

you shouldput in the description on what your using it for. like why the 32gbs of ram and only a gtx 650?

You realize that you could've gotten a 650 Ti for less than that 650, right? Even still, anything less than a 660 or 7870 seems out of place with that 8-core processor. Which brings up another point, you're using the stock heatsink. I understand that you probably won't be doing any overclocking but surely you can appreciate the usefulness of an aftermarket heatsink, they're not that expensive. The 32GB of RAM also seems out of place without an explanation of why you would need that much. With all of those hard drives you'd of thought that at least one of them would be an SSD.

But hey, it's your money. I hope you enjoy how you spent it.

Sorry for my dumbness on this build. I hope this build does you well, and I admit I am a little jealous of some of the parts.

What 'dumbness' are you talking about? And if I may ask what parts are you jealous of?

Hahaha you have not seen the posts I deleted. I was suggesting a near complete makeover and didn't carefully look at your information. I would love a dual monitor setup, and although it would be overkill for me, who wouldn't want 32GB of ram.

I have seen the posts you deleted. I, as well as others were confused on why you gave me a whole new build.

I will tell you tho, since I have built this system I have been able to run any program without worry about slowing down my pc.

Great, quick question. How does the 8350 do in games and editing. I was considering buying it for my build

I have been able to run anything without any glitch or freezing.

Any reason you didn't use the great cable management this case has? You could at least run the 24 pin through the grommets.

I mentioned this in a previous post. I will do that once I get the additional fans in a few days

Did you have to update the BIOS on that board? Because I'm thinking of buying it..

Yes, there is an update for this Bios..

You don't need to update the BIOS for the FX-8350 to work?

No, But according to Gigabyte's website you do

Mine fit out-of box in my UD3, but I bought mine used so they may have updated it prior to my purchasing.

I agree with others, if you say what you made this build for it would be easier for others to give feedback. Because this build is rather wacky.

You could thread the 24 pin cable through the back as well as the CPU power, which would improve airflow a bit.

True Yes. As soon as my new fans come in I will be changing it a bit...

You should have gone with a better videocard. Yes, I read the description, but most videocards come with various cable converters, I do believe. My 7850 that I used in my recently completed build came with the DVI-HDMI cable converter and a DVI-VGA cable converter. And if you didn't get one with your videocard, you could probably pick up a proper cable to allow for the connection from a store for about $20 or so.

You really need to get an upgraded cooler for your CPU. 70C under load is inexcusable in my opinion. Interesting that you opted for an 8350 but only a GTX 650, what gaming do you do? And you also realize that the only true benefit to HDMI is having HD audio and video in one connection, needing two outputs for computer monitors is a bit of a redundancy. DVI-D works beautifully, even at 1440p.

edit 2: OP already owns his build. posting a completely different one in every way while also being more expensive is completely pointless.

//////////Why did you post this? It is almost $200 more expensive than the OP's.

Also, you picked an unlocked CPU with a mediocre/bad motherboard for overclocking. (http://www.overclock.net/t/1333812/asrock-z77-extreme4-z77-extreme6-review)

overkill power supply, and two 1tb hard drives? OP has about 6tb listed.

edit: I'm getting more and more confused about this comment. you picked the full tower version of the phantom, when OP has the 410 (which is a mid tower.)

This is the place you should be if you want to help people choose parts for their builds: https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/forum/2-part-list-opinions-wanted/

If the build serves his purpose, there is no reason to change it.

I do visit that part of the forum often. Again thank you for giving me a reality check.

I hope this helps, if you want to make any changes.

If you want to help people choose parts you should seriously consider heading to that part of the forum. Giving people who have already built their computer a list of completely different parts in hopes that it will somehow magically help them is stupid.

Unless OP lives in the desert or on some kind of very dusty cat farm, that amount of dust is probably enough indication that he is past the standard 30-day return period.

BUILT ON 1/18/2013.... Outside of 30 day period.
