Description

This build was actually pretty fun and a quick one. Took maybe an hour and a half tops and enjoyed it. Sure, Zen Vega blah blah. This was budget and the 8350/470 combo was perfect for my clients needs of light-medium gaming and internet browsing. The actual price was around 830 because microcenter pricing so it was cheaper than listed. Gpu fans dont spon when idle and the wraith cooler is actually pretty nice

Is the Wraith cooler keeping the CPU cool under load?

Mason54 submitter 25 Builds 2 points 26 months ago

Definantly, only gets near 70C at 100% for long times

Whoah, that moniter is such a stel. 28 inch for 99!!! THATS A STEAL

Microcenter is an amazing place of discounts and employee purchases

Why did you spend so mush on the motherboard and SSD?

Mason54 submitter 25 Builds 1 point 26 months ago

SSD was reused so technically was free, mobo was -40 because CPU and MoBo bundles at microcenter

Very nice! I still like seeing FX build as these chips are still decent for their age, not too bad but they get the job done.

+1

Ive loved FX chips for a while and almost everyone i talk that owns one, loves it. And they dont run too hot unless you OC. Otherwise this onr is quite cool. Plus the wraith cooler is easily the best stock cooler on the market

I secretly own one, I will always like it over my overkill i7. :3

Shhhhhhhhhhhhh I dont want to get roasted for saying that. :P

Mason54 submitter 25 Builds 1 point 26 months ago

No roasting here, only AMD love

That and the magic Z word... Zen

Nice to see that there are some M.2-capable MBs for the FX chips... doesn't the M.2 get hot sitting under the GPU like that though?

Mason54 submitter 25 Builds 1 point 26 months ago

You would think but it doesn't get too hot. The Fab shroud on the black covers the M.2 just enough to hot air goes beneath it instead if on it

that is one ****** name for a video card lol but if it does the job then whatever, very clean cable management.

Mason54 submitter 25 Builds 2 points 26 months ago

I personally lpve the name and the catch phrase "One of Us" as it is devilishly fast. Especially in the RX480 varient

mmk

budget build $900

Mason54 submitter 25 Builds 1 point 26 months ago

Well, the total cost was actually around 700 due to already owning some parts and also from cheaper prices at microcenter

I must have missed several of your builds. This is a great pc.

Thumbs up.

Im happy with the 430 because it fits the needs as well as was a good price. Maybe when he comes back to me for upgrades in the future ill do something better

I reused the M.2 from a previous build and im quite happy with this build. My main rig has a 480 and i was given 900 so i made it work. Also buying win 10 off G2A and kinguin and all that is sketchy so i always avoid it, better to buy it real
