Description

Since then I am going to give this APU build to my friend. So here is the new parts with transferring over the 7850, CPU cooler,HDD and RAM.

I forgot to add that I have a 128 gb Apple SSD given as a gift last March and the 7850 I bought for $129 back in September. Still awaiting on the mouse to ship and the Mech. Keyboard I bought in December.

I love this build. I finally got a chance to do better cable management compared to the N200 case. Still feel like I need to replace the stock fans that came with the 200r.

Gaming is amazing for this rig. BF4 is the only thing tested so far. I have done more livestreaming with this rig and BF4 gets about 50-60FPS when streaming(might need to tweak some settings on that)

Anyone had experience overclocking this FX 6300? I want to see how much I can get with air cooling.

great build for a great price.

as for the Overclocking: http://www.overclock.net/t/1348623/amd-bulldozer-and-piledriver-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboard

This is a pretty comprehensive guide, should works will with your setup. The mobo you have wont do too well when upping the voltage so i wouldnt suggest going too much over stock voltage, but i wouldnt be surprised to see 4.2 ish with this set up.

Great budget build. Amd is the way to go it seems for these gaming budget builds.

i have the fx-6300 and a zalman cnps5x performa and ive managed to hit 4.2GHz at ok temps but i usually keep it at 4.0GHz just incase of spikes etc so you should get 4.2ish and be at a nice stable temp, i would normally recommend using amd afterburner for overclocking cos all you do is push a few buttons then runa stability test and there you go.

I prefer looking into the Bios for overclock tuning not saying that the software isnt good either just preference

Nice I was looking for a confirmation of that RAM was compatible with that mobo, thanks for uploading your build

dont worry you can get any ram under the 2400mhz to work in that asus mobo.
