Description

Gaming- MMORPGs and single player stealth games, Netflix of course

Click the link for a Benchmark using Futuremark's 3dMark Firestrike test. It shows current OC speeds etc....Built for 1440p on a 4K UHD Sharp SmartTV. It gets the job done with no issues. Plays most games now that i have tweaked setting in games at 4k.

Have reduced CPU and GPU Speeds to stock settings. Have the over clocked settings saved should i get a wild hair up my *** and wanna go balls out again >:)

3DMark's Timespy DX12 test

Part Reviews

CPU

Insane Performance from this CPU, currently running it at a very stable 4.8 Ghz, with Boost Disabled and all power saving Bios settings Disabled ; which seems to be the "sweet spot" for mine.

CPU Cooler

Installation is a breeze, Performance is jaw dropping in comparison to a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo, which could only maintain a 4.6 Ghz Oc speed on the FX 8350. The LED pump housing a clear tube is a very nice addition behind the tinted side panel of case. With this cooler the AMD FX 8350 is running 4.8 Ghz on a 24/7 Over clock.

Motherboard

Impressed by not only the features built in to it and the appeal it adds to the build. The UEFI Bios is visually pleasing, and has a very ease of use quality to it. Coupled with the strong LLC, it is sustaining a CPU that pulls 140+ watts and a GPU that will peak to near 300 watts with a 24/7 power on. 24 pin and a 8 pin for the CPU socket as well as an additional 4 pin connection to provide the extra needs of over clocking the CPU, it also has a BUILT in Molex 12 Volt to grant extra power to Multiple GPUs running on the PCIe slots. Definitely a strong must buy recommendation from me if you're planning to do any decent gaming

Memory

Painless auto over clocked to the package specs of 1866 Mhz. Looks good against the motherboard with the HyperX logo in white.

Storage

Have owned this SSD for a considerable length of time. It has been transferred across several laptops and desktop builds. 256Gb isn't a lot of room but it has stood up to the torture of installing and un-installing games over and over again over the past few years. Very respectable build quality and durable life span for a gaming system

Case

Price is extremely cheap for a full ATX case. The Build is solid, has room in the top for a 240mm Radiator in which I have the Gamer Storm Captain 240 EX sitting in that spot. I did swap the Blue LED fans that comes with the case out for: 3 Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Red LED Silent Fans - 2 in the front as intake fans and the rear fan as exhaust - and added a DeepCool 350 RGB light Kit to make it a sick AMD Red Beast; inside of the White metal and black trim case's tinted side panel window. The front panel pulls off with just enough tension to still retain a very nice and solid appearance with filters in the sided and bottom. The PSU is in the traditional bottom rear mounting location with a filter on the outside the slides out for easy cleaning as well.

Keyboard

Razer Mech Keyboard. Who doesn't love them. Solid buy for the money, wished they had not of changed the headset jack to a single 4 pole plug and had left it with separate headphone /mic jacks instead. 4 stars for this reason

Mouse

One of the best mice I have owned, and has survived a lot longer than any near same priced ones i have purchased before and after this one. I use this daily.

Your small window of opportunity hampered by a lack of pictures and incorrect parts posting. For shame, for shame I say.

Do the 2 GPU fans spin together at 60c? or only 1

and did u had any issue with it?

  • 34 months ago

Rarely hits 60 c due to the 2 fans i added above both cards to help with the heat from the power draw, and usually both will spin and stop at same time. due to the settings i used in wattman to help synch them

other than losing the Radeon Chill option when i added the 2nd card into system and the usual buggy behavior from wattman that eceryone experiences no real issues 10/10 happy with the performance
