Edit: Thank you for all the feedback and comments! You guys are so much nicer than I expected!
WARNING, INCREDIBLE QUALITY OF AN IPHONE 5 CAMERA FOR THE PICTURES. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. sighs This is my first build. Firstly, thank you for clicking on this build! It is very much appreciated! Secondly, prepare for a mini rant and some questions that someone could hopefully answer. Without further ado, lets get to the parts and what I think about them!
CPU: First of all, I'm not an Intel fan. (I can already predict the hate I'm about to get). I find that their processors can just be too expensive, and the motherboards for them don't come cheap either. This is why I went for the AMD FX-8350. I love this processor. It performs greatly in video editing and games, etc. The only problem that I have with it is the default fan. The noise and the heat that it generates is ridiculous, and I'm hoping someone could tell me a way on how to quieten it, or I'm going to have to invest in an aftermarket cooler, maybe the Corsair H55. (I'm not overclocking, btw) I rate the CPU 4.5/5 stars.
Motherboard: I'm not an expert on motherboards. This does what I want it too, so I'm not complaining. I rate the Motherboard 5/5 stars.
Memory: Fast, cheap and reliable RAM. All I needed. I rate the RAM 5/5 stars.
Storage: As a gamer, video editor and graphics designer (all at 14 lol), I use alot of storage. After having a laptop with a 750gb hard drive for 3 years, I was constantly deleting games and programs to make more and more space. This is why I opted to use an SSD for my operating system and Adobe Creative Suite, and used a 1tb harddrive to store all my schoolwork and games. I rate the Storage 4.5/5, as I had some trouble getting windows to detect my hard drive.
Video Card: nVidia Geforce GTX 760. I've had this card for years, just never had enough money to base a build around it. yes, i'm using a CPU from Team Red and a GPU that is usually matched with Team Blue. I'm a #rebel like that. This GPU does all I need it to do. It plays Star Wars Battlefront at 60fps medium/high settings whilst recording at 60 FPS, Counter Strike Global Offensive at 120 FPS at Ultra settings. May I also note that ShadowPlay is awesome. I now need to go to the negative side of this card. It has what my friends and I call the "blowdryer" fan on it. It's basically Gainwards attempt at making the reference card (only one fan). It's either the CPU fan or GPU fan that cause a HUGE amount of noise, however I suspect that it's the CPU fan, because I change the fan speed for my GPU in MSI Afterburner, and the noise doesn't change that much. But still, this card makes noise. Due to the noise, I rate this card 4/5
Case: DO NOT GET THIS CASE. I REPEAT. DO NOT GET THIS CASE. This case is honestly, in my opinion, terrible. It does have space for SSD's and Hard Drives, but the airflow and cable management options are awful. The case comes with 1 120mm fan, and no possible way of tiding up cables. The case's side panels bend very easily, almost to easily. I bent one of them whilst trying to put it back on the case. Once it's bent however, it suddenly becomes as strong as steel, because it is impossible to bend them back to their original shape. Not to mention that the case gets extremely hot directly above and around the CPU, not to mention the fact that it vibrates the hell out of my desk with only 1 fan, let alone the extra 2 I had to buy in a desperate attempt to keep my PC cool. I rate the Case 2/5 stars, because it is just terrible.
Power Supply: Decent enough power supply, however I should have gone with a higher voltage and modular power supply, because cables are everywhere! I rate the Power Supply 4/5 stars, it powers my machine on lol.
Optical Drive: Used to install windows. Does not burn or rip discs, which is annoying. I rate the Optical Drive 4/5 stars, just because it doesn't burn or rip discs.
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64bit. Need I say more? I rate the OS 5/5
Questions: My computer suddenly turns off without warning about twice a day. I have no clue why, or what I should do about it. There is no Blue screen of death, its just like a power cut. except all the electrical powered things in my house work. What should I do?
How do I get the CPU fan quiter?
Conclusion: Thanks for reading/viewing the pictures! Sorry about the image quality, iPhone 5 isn't exactly the best. Please leave a comment expressing your views on my first build! Thanks!
