MORE, HIGHER QUALITY PICTURES COMING SOON

Edit: 3D Mark does NOT like my PC. Afraid to post scores.

MAIN PURPOSING: A small, light PC to take between parents' houses with relative ease.

CPU: I got this cpu based on the price to performance ratio, and the ability to overclock if need be. Having been leftover from my previous build, it saved me from having to upgrade for a few more months. As soon as a job rolls my way a 4690k will be placed in the exact same spot.

CPU COOLER: Previously I had a Hyper 212 EVO but, obviously it would not fit in the 380T, so I managed a trade with a close friend for a blackout cooler that would fit. Nearly silent, too!

MOBO: Bad experiences were had on my first motherboard, partly because of irresponsible power usage, and partly because of irresponsible overclocking, so I wanted to go for an ASUS motherboard that would stand up well and look good at the same time.

RAM: Single 8gb stick. Could have gone for 2x4gb at first, but it all works out for when I get another. Using CAD, editing occasional videos, and photoshop, along with greedy ol' GTA V. Leftover from old build.

STORAGE: Not much needed more than 1tb, going to grab a 1tb external drive to keep movies on, and a 500gb SSD later on for the OS and games. Leftover from old build.

GPU: Honestly a bad idea, but all I have. This card has bad coil whine, and gets quite loud in load. Temps stay good, but far too loud, and being stupid old me, I didn't RMA. Going for a 750ti and later a 380x. Leftover from old build.

CASE: A well thought out and much appreciated gift. Love my mother for getting this for me, the built in fan speed controller keeps it silent when I want it silent, and cool when I want it cool. Love then handle and windows as well.

PSU: Both this and the motherboard came from money that my father gave me for the build. Kudos to him. I wanted a psu that had enough juice to power an AMD system and to stay loyal to the corsair master race. Don't know much about a power supply, but 80+ Gold sounded great to me.

OS: No money for one left, why not Windows 10?

Colors don't match. Very displeased. Upgrades coming soon.

Overclock cpu to 4ghz to get more value out of it

Somewhat frightened to push it that far because of the limited airflow in the admitedly big itx case.

Have you overclocked the CPU yet? I was told it'll only work on BIOS version 1.7? is that true? does the BIOS version vary depending on which motherboard you're using?

BIOS version depends on the chipsets you use on the motherboard, so yes motherboard does matter. Just go to your motherboard manufacturers website to find the latest update for your BIOS/UEFI. Then overclocking your CPU should be a breeze.

I think I should point out that my talented friend makes my computers and all credit should go towards him. I myself have no idea how to update the bios or even if it has been done. I have fiddled with some settings but to no avail so far.
