Description

I built this station to help myself work on my java development with a stronger computer over my laptop. I also like to game on the off chance that I can find some time to do so between school and work. During the build I had no issues in the building of it, or with the compatibility of the parts.

Do you ever eat Doritos while you work? It looks like a place you probably would stay for long periods of time so, you know, you have to eat something right? XD

Also good choices with parts.

Im not sure if you got those peripherals as a gift, but you could have got slightly better parts if you didnt spend as much on your peripherals. Just saying. Or you maybe just need those parts for what you work on. Whatever the case, (bad pun), its a solid build.

Got the peripherals as a gift, didn't have any input on them :P So they weren't really included in the budget for the build at the time.

Nice build! I initially wanted to build one similar but didn't have the space or budget. Definitely would recommend overclocking that CPU since you have the cooling headroom to do so! I would try to go as high as I can if I had the same build! Enjoy the PC man!

Sadly, seems i got a bit of a crappy chip, couldn't push it past 4.1 GHz. As soon as it went above that, it would crap out and freeze ;-:

Same MoBo I have... rock solid choice. H100i is a bit much, a Kracken X31 or something along those lines would have been fine for the 6300 you have. Solid build.

im guessing he already had one

I chose the H100i not only for its cooling, but also for its looks, to me it looks very slick :P I also had it around from a previous build

Looks great. Did you really pay more for a CPU cooler than either your CPU and GPU? And a 5400 RPM drive? There a performance speed-limit that you're trying to stay under?

Overclocking? Unused drive he didn't have to pay for? There a positive comment you can say besides the norm?

You can get a $30 air cooler to OC. How do you know he didn't pay for it and just didn't list pricing? How do you know it's an unused drive? It's the only storage listed.

He made almost every building mistake in the book. The PSU is awful for an overclocking build and should be replaced immediately. His CPU cooler is more expensive than his 4-year-old CPU and dead AM3+ socket. He mixed RAM kits. The hard drive is barely archival quality. His peripherals are overpriced for their quality and relative to the rest of the components.

If other people see this build, they should at least be aware of its shortcomings so the mistakes aren't repeated. People should post in the Build Opinions forum first for feedback before a big investment. My own brother made the same mistake and his PSU literally exploded and cost him half of his build. I don't want other people to suffer the same mistake.

I'm glad OP is happy with the build. If it works for him or her, more power to em; doesn't mean there wasn't room for improvement.

That ¨ 4 year old cpu ¨can compete with some of the higher end I5s And I7s so you should stop talking also a psu is not going to explode from terrible overclocking maybe if you suffocate it also you don't know how much he is overclocking that cpu with that cooler so i think you should get your facts straight before you go around and offend other peoples builds
