Description

Built to house my DVD collection. Since picture have changed memory cooling fan and the video card. Also later this year plan to change the CPU from the FX 8350 to the new FX 9590. When just seeing what PC Part Picker 2 problems were stated. 1: 2 additional SATA 1.5 Gb/s compatible ports are needed. This is solved if look at the custom parts there is a SATA 3 card in the build. 2: additional SATA 6 Gb/s compatible port is needed. This is covered by the Syba 2.5-Inch HDD/SSD RAID Caddy with Two SATA III. There was one problem I found was the power supply was not enough, due to all the cooling fans. Since not wanting to have to drop another investment for a 1500W power supply I added a Coolerguys 100-240v AC to 12 & 5v DC 4pin Molex 2A Power Adapter for the fans alone. The 4pin Molex cable goes through one of the grommet holes in the back of the case. Doing this everything works fine. The temperature of the inside of the case runs around 3° F warmer than the room which is kept at 72° F. As for the CPU usually around 87° F. There is another thing that I did was to put the push fan for the push pull setup for the water cooler on the outside. The reason for this was there was a lot of space opened up over the mother board. So that's about all.

Why not just OC your 8350 instead of buying the 9590??

I just don't know very much about doing that. It's working ok but want to see what the speed is like without taking any chances with the chip.

Well think of it this way: Do some research first, and if you do accidentally kill the CPU while OC'ing, then you can buy the 9590 then like you wanted to. I mean, you have a liquid-cooled 8350. It's kind of a waste if you don't even try to OC even a little bit.

I have the 8350 myself, and from what I've heard, you can clock it up to near 4.8 with normal liquid cooling. I haven't done it myself, but as far as flexibility goes, this processor is good for it, so long as you can keep it cool.

I've wanted to test with one for a while, just to see how it stacks up against my i7-4770k, but I happened to win an FX-9590 Liquid Cooling box set from AMD about 3 weeks ago, so now I just need a motherboard and case, and I'm good to go. :p

I have over 4900 titles. It's a 15x17 room covered in book cases and they are full also 4 more in center of room. Insured for $140,000. This collection has been added to over many years. Also trying to get them all in and the fastest way is ISO files.

My movie collection is starting to get a little out of hand as well. What program are you using to rip the DVD's?

This computer is just for storage mostly. It was built to work with movie collectorz. It has nearly my whole DVD collection in it. The collection has over 4800 titles in it, Just something I wanted to do I am retired and this helps pass the time. Was told that as long as the collection stayed on my computer and in house was the same as a back up/

Wow, that's a ton of dvds. You wouldn't by chance have all three seasons of Gilligan's Island, would you?

No but it's idea haven't even thought of that one. Open to any other suggestions. Right now not that many good movies are coming out to DVD and I have been buying R2 & R4 films which once ripped the codes are gone so will the ISO can play on anything.
