Description

As a 16 year old, this is my first build and I'm pretty proud of it. Im using it as my my main computer with some light to medium gaming, and so far it is running really well. My spring break just started so Im just breaking it in now, but I just played FarCry at High/Very High/Ultra graphics and there was no stuttering at all (I googled how to show the fps but it seems no one can get it to work) anyways, I am really happy with this build and I think it was money well spent. I'm probably going to get an aftermarket cooler for it soon, but I'm not in TOO much of a hurry to do that.

Awesome budget build, but I think you can get more of that 750ti! I've heard the stock fan of FX series is really bad, good choice on the aftermarket cooler, 212 evo is good and cheap +1

Bad is an understatement. It whines like a baby. Good job on silencing that with the EVO 212. It's highly recommended even at stock clocks, as it's even audible at idle....

The cooler itself works fine, and even just swapping the fan with another branded one helps.

Have you tried using Fraps for FPS?

That version of 3DMark isn't 3DMark 11.

how did you manage 10k on 3dmark with just that? I only managed about 7600 with an EVGA 760 and fx-6300

Eeek! Cable management! Fix those cables, otherwise a very good build. :)

Epic build dude, but the PSU is kind of overkill

Great build! I had the same case when I built mine. I recommend you to put your hard drive on the bottom bay and remove the top hard drive bay for better airflow. Like how I've done it in mine: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/O9R

Another option would be get a 3.5 to 5.25 adapter for like $2 and mount your HDD in the area under your CDROM.
