Description

I assembled this PC for myself. I play many games like Battlefield 4, CSGO, Skyrim, Rust, Dishonored, LoL, some Assassin's Creed, Far Cry 3 and other games. It works very well, it's fast and I can play all games on high-ultra settings, having above 60fps costantly. The CPU temperature in idle is not bad but I want to change the thermal paste with an MX-2 and I wanna add some fans because summer is coming and is so hot. Don't worry about the temperatures of the 960, I calculated when the fans were off. I bought the non-windowed version of the famous 300R because I made the tempered plexiglass window myself. I also added some sleeves and a RGB LED strip, connected to one molex of the psu, just for make some cool light. I had some problems in this build: the HDD is loud when is working, the PSU fan makes some noise and most important, I have graphic bugs in some games, and I see darker colors green and purple...but I'm glad of this build, guys if you have some comments or advices, please write here.

UPDATE - 25/06/15 Finally my new Corsair RM550 power supply arrived today. I've already mounted it, it's very very quiet and has good aesthetics, but I had some little problems with the cable management. I also changed the thermal paste with an Arctic MX-2; Idle temps aren't changed, but I get a few degrees less in gaming. Photos coming soon.

Full HD resolution. I get 170 average on LoL, maximum details, and 70 average on BF4. I don't play COD.

Is it on 1080p? And do you think thet the SSD may effect the amout of fps on the games?

SSD cannot impact FPS in games.

Yes, 1920x1080p. I don't know. I have not installed games on SSD, but I think the SSD only can increase the speed of loading, not boost frames.

Hello, nice build, I'm new to building PC's. Do you know if your video card would be better then r9 380 4gb? My build is very similar to yours but um wondering if i should use your video card instead of what i have picked out.

Hi, with my card I can play all the games at max. settings up to 60fps. If I have to choose between this 960 and a R9 380, I prefear the 380 only for the 4GB of memory. The performance is very similar.
