Description

This is my first Gaming computer that I have built and have bought all the parts, but ordered the two case fans so they should be here soon.

I went with AMD because I think it will be more bang for my buck and I also plan to upgrade along the way. I confirm that the Enermax ETS-T40-TB does fit inside the Azza Sirius ATX mid tower, with a couple of centimeters of space left. I have not bought the monitor yet, but plan to.

I haven't gotten to try any hardcore games on it yet, but I was able to play simple games like League and The Witcher on it and so far no problems have occurred. I am currently running Windows 8.1 on the computer seeing that after research, I hope turns out to be the better decision than Windows 7

I will also think about overclocking the CPU when I figure out how and make sure it is even worth it. I will be adding pictures soon.

Update: When I received my other case fans for the computer I had noticed that I put the aftermarket cpu fan on backwards and it is now in the correct position as well as an added fan. Played many more games on it now such as dark souls, cs:go, evil within, skyrim, and the fps never drops below 30 (the only game that really gets done to 30 is dark souls at Blight town). Computer still runs beautifully and still nothing has gone wrong yet.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Pros: So far it has fit in my Azza sirius ATX mid tower case and sounds beautiful way better than the stock fan. Installation wasn't too bad at all, just had to deal with a little amount of room. Keeps the CPU nice and cool.

Cons: none

Would you recomend the FX6300 over a cheap i5?

I couldn't say that an FX6300 would be better because I haven't tried out a i5 for gaming yet, but from research I have gathered that the i5 3740 may be better than the FX6300 even though the lowest cost I have found for the i5 is about 200 bucks but it does have better performance (based off of research). If you are looking for something that is powerful but still cheap then I would go with the FX6300.
