Description

The CPU- was previously owned from a friend of mine with an NZXT H440 build who once had it overclocked to 5.0ghz and is currently running very well in my rig

CPU Cooler- Was a budget cooler, how can you go wrong with Noctua? It was a steal for the price, works nicely with my build.

Motherboard- Keeping with the blue theme I decided on the Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0. For me the motherboards exceptional for my use as a gamer and has everything I could need.

Ram- Nothing special but its blue

Storage- Kingston HyperX Fury SSD 120GB & WD Blue 1TB

Video Card- You cant go wrong with a free card got it from a good friend and works very well, I've been able to run many games on high res. and it has been surprisingly quiet

The Case- Overall the case is sleek looking and gives me plenty of options for later upgrades when I wish to do so.

Planned Upgrades: Additional ram, new graphics card

Nice clean build! Should run well, but more RAM should help.

Your ram should definitely be sufficient for quite some time so don't concern yourself too much with upgrading it! All in all, this is a really solid build. An SSD will make a big difference, I recommend that first! +1

Yeah for sure. The boot is a little slower than I would like (Windows 7) so im planning on getting a SSD very soon.

Great build, literally just finished one two days ago with the 6300 and a 270x...and the same mobo and ram hahaha we have good taste! Did you reduce the clock of the 6300 back to stock? I've got mine running at 4.0GHz but I'm not sure if I want to go for more (I've reached the multiplier limit, would have to start upping voltages)

Haha heck yeah. I currently have the cpu overclocked at 4.0 ghz im sure it can handle like 4.2 ghz without issues but i wouldnt want to push it further than that.

With the current parts? No. But if I so choose to do later upgrades this will work nicely.
