Description

Used for gaming and the occasional LAN. Everything works now, the stickers are truck vinyl stickers from amazon.

I originally got a 9590 for the processor, but the wattage difference between the board (150 watt recommended limit) and the CPU (220 Watts)made the machine hiccup. I ended up selling the 9590 to a friend who is building a rig and it all worked out!

I'm using a PlayStation eye for a webcam, and it's actually pretty decent.

I bought a portable disk reader from amazon and it fits well under the monitor stand.

That's interesting that you couldn't run a 9590 with all the supplementary power connectors on that board. I see a 4-pin and a 8-pin EPS and the 4-pin Molex you hooked up (they put that in an awkward spot didn't they?). Nice build though.

strange as there are many builds with that motherboard and the 9590 on completed builds section. That motherboard is compatible with the 9590, maybe your PSU was the problem... not that great.

The 9590 seemed to work well for the first month, only crashing occasionally, but i kept assuming it was drivers or my OEM copy of windows, and trouble shooting because i saw that other people used the motherboard and CPU combination. But one day, it crashed and didn't turn back on- leading to my discovery that people who used the 9590 had to tweak bios settings to get a well functioning combo. The Asus forums for my motherboard often have someone asking about how to fix it through the bios- At the time this was way over my head and i couldn't even boot to the bios, so i just sold the 9590 and ended up with what i have now.

And ASUS doesn't recommend this CPU for the mother board because it requires more power then the mother board allows for it to have. Out of the box it's not 100% compatible.

+1 for a solid looking build

Can you link the lights you used? Having trouble finding ones I like and these seem to give you a good spread

Do you think 1 meter is enough? I don't really wanna end up with a cable thats too long. Awesome title btw ;) very creative.

I actually really like this build a lot. Probably one of my favorites in a long time. Your pictures aren't doing it justice at all though. I would love to see some high quality, creative shots to really show us what you've built. Definitely a +1 from me.

Thanks Man! I understand though, thing is pretty much all of my money from last summer went into this build, so my funds to buy a camera are pretty nonexistent. Ill defiantly look around and see if any of my friends have the equipment necessary to take some HQ photos!

Nice build! Will the X31 be good in a quiet pc build? Does it make alot of noise?

I haven't noticed the cooler at all in terms of sound. Then again, i game with headphones so i could just be oblivious.

Inb4: all the you should've gone with an i5

I bought parts in chunks, and at the time the massive amounts of GHz on the FX-9590 and eight cores sounded outstanding compared to the i5.

In hindsight the i5 looks a lot better for what i was going for, and if I build again I will defiantly go Intel.
