Description

This build went very well. I ordered a lot of open box from Amazon and Newegg. The R9 was used from Ebay. All in all every part came with excellent packaging, padding and original parts except for the tower which looked like it was a yard sale item. Thank goodness Antec makes beasts! Fan count ended up at eight! So far it is quiet. Can't wait to see what it sounds like under load. CPU cooler came with bent fins which were easy to fix, although fairly time consuming to piece together in the overall scheme of assembling goes. Not a dislike as putting the PC together is enjoyable in itself.

You could have went with a fx- 6300 for about the same price. But it is still a really nice build.

My decision was based on single core performance and price. Just happened to be on sale enough to push me to choose quad core.

Will try to get the cables sorted soon. We are in the process of selling our house and time and space to work on the system are limited at the moment.

I realize that case doesn't have much management options and you did a good job considering - but my eyes hurt from the wire mess nonetheless. Good build for the price btw

Nice suggestion. I decided to flip the back fan and draw air in the back and out through the top for filtering dust. All in all nothing in the tower gets noticeably above ambient room temp. its amazing!

My thoughts on fan placement were heat rises so I flipped the back fan to pull air in as well as the two fans in the front. Then let the 200mm fan on top pull out. This should allow easy dust filtering and cleaning.

You could have saved 40$ if you got the oem tray model of the amd FX-4350

The fan from the back is flipped and pulls air in and across the mobo cpu and ram. All in all the whole pc has no temp above ambient. it is amazing!

the fan comes with two mounting brackets and the fan has a separate mounting plate that can be flipped and screwed into the brackets to face either direction.
