Description

Well, here goes nothing. Thought I'd share my wonderful little powerhouse to the world.

Don't ask about the harddrive, it's 8 years old now, I used it in my first build, and it's still kicking. lul

As for the Toshiba HDD, it came from my laptop that had water damage (HDD is the only thing that survived)

PSU, motherboard, and CPU heatsink I bought back in early 2011. I bought the 7950 when it was only 290 dollars after rebate, around April of 2013. It is an awesome miner, using it to mine LTC when I'm not gaming.

The FX6300 I bought to replace my old phenom II 555, I found it in the summer on ebay (OEM) for 85 bucks. I snagged it ASAP. Overclocked it to 4.7ghz on my AsRock 970 Extreme4 without any problems.

Overall I love this build. Hoping to expand on it in the future. I just got the CFI case from fedEX today and cable management was a breeze with it. I'm pleased with this case.

It actually came out to about 650-700 dollars when I bought all the parts. Not 1100.

Wow i have a hard time believing that OC is anywhere close to stable... If it is i think youve got the best chip AMD ever put out

It's very stable, LLC enabled, voltage always goes between 1.45-1.47. I did all the tests and everything. The last BSOD I had was in the summer when I tried to do 4.8ghz. I got 4.8ghz to run for a few hours, but then it would crash. 4.7ghz, haven't had any crashes. I hit the freakin' lottery with my motherboard and processor. Extreme luck on my side.

Videocard on the other hand, it was a struggle to hit 1100mhz. I have the voltage so high, only have it clocked like this cause it's winter and my room has no heat. (55f at night usually in here, cold as balls)

wow, that is extremely lucky! keeping temps below 60 too just doesnt seem possible lol

Thanks! I thank my room being 55-60f all year round for the lower temps. I'm pretty sure that plays a nice factor in my lucky overclock.:P

Edit: Uploaded a pic of the overall temps for my PC, speccy reads the temp pretty low, I figure Speedfan is a bit more accurate.

Don't know why it reads my fanspeed @ 339k RPM.. lolol.

its really the load temps that are pertinent lol

Very true! It does get very hot full 100% I won't kid myself on that lol.

Like 72c it topped out at. It doesn't go above 50c in gaming or anything else, however. GPU gets to about 60c in games, but during my mining it hits 68-72c depending on how cool my room is.

I had to make a separate overclock profile for my mining sessions because @ 1100/1390 it gets to 85c+! I mine @ 1025/1250

It's a good build. The HDD'S are a little sketchy, but if they work for u then no problem right? You could probably save a bit swapping out the MW-9 and going for a home premium. That way u could get a better HDD. Other than that, u got an awesome GSU,CPU,RAM, etc. Good luck with the build dude.

Thank you both, I did some of my best work tonight with it. Swapping out the parts from my NZXT source 210 to the CFI Bastet. Cable routing holes in the source were too small, plus the case couldn't really fit my huge *** heatsink in there. :P

The case was 49.99. The one I wanted was the CFI Diablo which was on sale, but sold out so fast. Picked this one up instead. It's a nice case for the price. It was easy to work with, solidly built, no need for tools besides screwing in addon cards like gfx and sound.

Yeah I know, the HDDs are pretty sketchy, but they do run fine, so I figured I'd just save money until I can get a nice SSD and a 1TB HDD with it.

How did you install the gpu with this case? Like what screws did you use?

I used regular screws from a previous case
