Description

This was my first build, I am still planning to instal liquid cooling and when the new Intel CPUs come out I plan to upgrade. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Not bad, but I bet the Cable Management Police will have a thing or two to say about your wiring...

Until you learn how to cable mange please don't make more. Please work on it. It doesn't seem you even tried.

Good parts choice - plenty of power in that PSU for down the road.

As for the temperatures, I feel like 80C is really high for an AMD chip...don't know the recommended TDP or anything but I know for the 6300 you really don't want it to get above 65C or so, but I could be wrong. Regardless, the cable management will help with those temps! Overall good job!

I like it. Obviously you need to work on cable management especially if you're overclocking you GPU or CPU. That CPU is good and to take full advantage of it you might want to think about water cooling it. one of my friends has a CPU like yours. I think its the 8350 and he water cooled it with a closed loop and got over 4.7mhz. This helped his FPS a bit. TBH, if your temps are fine cable management isn't a huge issue although it could lower it a few degrees.

I like this build just the way it is. A nice budget build with pretty much no wasted money.

Then the description...

Going to add water cooling? Why? That cpu doesn't need water. A decent water cooler is 80 bucks, that would be 10% of the nice budget you have going, for basically nothing. No advantage, and possibly even a disadvantage taking ambient airflow from the rest of your components, ram, mobo, hard drives, etc.

Then you say you plan to upgrade your cpu. Then you should have bought a better mobo. Again, for this build and this budget, this is a great mobo. BUT if you planned on upgrading that cpu in the future, you should have got a better board.
