Description

This was a Tax Return gift to me, as well as my second build. My first was old and falling apart so I decided to build this. I do need to replace my tubing now though due to making the mistake of going with blue dyed coolant.

Update - Replaced tubing with XSPC Blue PVC

Part Reviews

CPU

So far this is the best CPU I've had. It's fast enough for what I do, gaming mostly. So far the only thing I can say that is negative is that it is a FURNACE, but even then, I haven't needed a space heater during the last couple of winters.

Motherboard

No complaints other than the time it tried to OC my CPU to 5.1GHz on first boot. Then again that was most likely user error.

Case

Beautiful case, plenty of space for large GPU's. Only complaint is it needs to come stock with dust filters.

Haven't seen many AMD 9000s on this website.

Who wouldn't want great performance and a home heating system for the winter?

+1 This is great

Grimboom 3 points 36 months ago

I see what you did there, because you can boil water with a 9590 on full load :D

Nice choice of parts, good luck getting the liquid out.

The 2nd photo looks as if it's a bit dusty near the bottom, it'd look better if it's cleaned up a bit :)

jacobs4525 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

The PSU is a little less-than-reputable.

NicoMan2240 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

why do all the products say $0?

sidthepsyco submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Had to find my receipts. :D

NicoMan2240 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

oh. why no ssd?

sidthepsyco submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

budget did not allow for ssd at the time. SSD coming soon tho.

NicoMan2240 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

you couldve bought an 120gb samsung 840 evo instead of the 640gb hdd

sidthepsyco submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

I didn't buy the 640, it was a remnant of my first build.

xdenttim 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

nice m8 +1

Jakjakattack 0 points 36 months ago

Why not an intel and a 970 with this budget? It'd be about the price.

OneAndOnly 1 Build 3 points 36 months ago

inte 970? Are you okay? that is first generation i7 which is **** compared to 4th generation. Why not a 4790k

Forester 2 points 36 months ago

You just made my day.

OneAndOnly 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

thank you i do that you know? I was joking doe to see the rage comments

Forester 1 point 36 months ago

I have to say I couldn't really tell.

hjj174 1 point 36 months ago

Are you joking or are you serious? Hard to tell. He meant Intel cpu with a GTX 970.

hjj174 1 point 36 months ago

Notice this was built in February. It tells you right above the CPU and GPU temp/clock boxes.

Bladedrummer 4 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

Built in February.

sidthepsyco submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Because I wanted to run AMD

awepicness 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

sidthepsyco submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Bias? No, my dream build contains Intel Core i7 5960x
