Alright so the processor was a birthday gift from my aunt but everything else I paid for so I got off lucky there. A lot of these were black friday deals and I was watching sales all month trying to find the best deals. The video card was from newegg, it was on sale for $489.99 and I used the masterpass code to get $49 off.
Everything was relatively easy to put together. The only diffuculty I had was with the cooler. The instructions were pretty vague in some parts and I thought I was going to break the motherboard putting it on. Once I figured it out though it was all fine. It keeps everything pretty cool so I can't complain. overall everything is pretty quiet. I originally had a fan on the side panel but that made it pretty loud so I took it out and haven't noticed a temp difference. I might add it back in when I sli but I'll figure that out later.
All in all I'm very happy with it. I added 115 mods into skyrim and I still get 60 fps. I plan to overclock the 8320 more later, I'm going to aim for 4.4 or 4.5 which I think will be easily reachable given the temps I have now. Feel fre to ask me any questions and I'll answer as quickly as I can.
