Description

Built for all around performance, light gaming, illustrator, photoshop, and indesign etc. Currently my FX 8350 is running at 4.3ghz which is just what my sabertooth board decided to run it at. The H100i is overkill on cooling for now, but I wanted a cooler that could handle a future overclock/ that did not take up a ton of board space/ and ran much quieter than the stock cpu cooler fan. Decided on the FX 8350/sabertooth 990fx combo over intel based on the value per performance (didn't want to pay more than $350 on the cpu and mobo or have to buy a lower quality motherboard to offset the cost). CPU handles much more than I probably ever will throw at it.

Yeah almost the same. Do u like your barricuda drive? I'm between that and a wd black series. Also do you hear a difference with the soundcard? I eventually want to sli and don't know if the card is worth a slot for me.

Get a higher end card when you can, if you need it. SLI two 660 is not gonna be worth it in the long run, Getting a 770 or even 780 would be much better. And then SLI'ing them in the future.

Yeah. I was trying to keep the build around 1k. I couldn't decide between the ati 270x or the nvidia 660/760 but for what I do right now the 660 is a good fit for the price. Sorta shot myself in the foot for sli though I guess.

I would personally have went with 270x if i had to decide between those cards. Even though the 760 would've been just as good of a pick. But I don't know why you got a last gen card when you could've gotten a newer one.

I believe it is. The motherboard on board is not as good as the sound card. I like it a lot except for the red LEDs. For the HDD, I like it a lot. I always disk defrag, which helps. How do you like your SSD?

Very similar to what I'm building.

Any issues with the H100i (Install, noise, LED)?
