Description

First Complete build used for 4K gaming. Been using a pre-built desktop PC for the past five years switching parts every now and then and have decided to finally upgrade. After saving up throughout the last couple years I have decided to go with a complete AMD build.

Besides the optical drive, everything from the old desktop PC has been replaced with new parts. This desktop PC is mainly used for school work and gaming. I am very pleased with the quality and performance with AMD and their products when it comes to gaming in 4K. Very pleased just how quiet and cool the whole system runs.It has been a fun build and I'm hoping I can maybe switch out some of the parts to the accommodate the new AM4 socket sometime in the next few years.

Man the more I see the Carbide 600 and 400 series cases, the more I want one! So slick! Nice build.

Great build, fun seeing a Fury X build. But, the cable management. Never used this case, but I'm pretty confident you could better :D +1

great looking build and nice part choices, though seeing your case on the carpet and knowing the fans are on the bottom bothers me :( i would get a piece of plywood or glass to elevate your case above the carpeting and allow for better airflow

2 changes I'd consider making. 1st, I'd flip the radiator fans and have them pull in air. 2nd, placing a board/plank under the case. All that air is currently being smothered by the carpet one way or another. Slight cleanup with the cables would be good, otherwise +1.

Nice build but that crooked stiker placement is bothering my ocd lol

Nice looking build, the GPU being upside down would drive me nuts but that is all. One question. Why the clock?

+1 for sure.

I find it nice to have a clock on the desk rather than looking at the small system clock on the desktop

As good of a reason as any. :D I keep a laptop next to my desktop so I dont have room to talk. lol

Nice build I'm a massive fan of AMD and have used the 8350 for a long time before the intel switch. Was wondering how I holds up with the fury x. I had my 8350 at 4.8ghz and paired with R9 290x and wasn't getting the peformace out of it I wanted towards the end.

I find it funny that he calls it the red assassin but puts two massive blue fans in it...

with that CPU and mobo combo

you should be able to get close to 5GHz

if you can hit even like 4.7GHz

you got yourself a FX9590 for less than 200 USD :)

many builds i seen sports a 980Ti

but sure good to see a Fury X being featured here in PCPartPicker

You should post benchmarks.

Watterson 1 point 27 months ago

like ingame benchmarks

you better OC that cpu because the bottleneck is real

its blue... I almost see NO Red on something called "The Red Assassin"

dj12134 1 Build 2 points 28 months ago

AMD

Khas 2 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

There you go.. I changed the wording to "i almost see NO red" For all of you nitpickers that see a red speck of glitter and feel the need to point it out.

travislefebvre 2 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

Maybe the Radeon emblem?

Khas 2 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

There is a red light on the GPU.. so yup.. its a ..."red assassin"

travislefebvre 2 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

only makes sense

Clarkzor submitter 2 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

True, the blue fans do send a mixed message. I was trying to refer to the red that most people refer to when talking about AMD products.

Khas 2 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

Well right.. but there is (basically) no red on that rig.. anywhere..

Call it the blue assassin :P

Hardware combo is nice for what I use it for. The CPU definitely creates a noticeable bottleneck on the performance of the overall system. Hopefully AMD's new CPU's will fix that issue in the future.
