I use this PC to play games, record footage, and render, and I had a very small budget and am still adding small things on as I get money. Everything worked out great! At first I was a little concerned, as I have heard some people not being able to post with an FM2+ board. However everything was just fine. My case does not have all that much space behind the motherboard to hide cables so for many I did just stuff them in the hard drive cage. I was 13 years of age, so if I did mistakenly do something wrong, please do let me know!
Minecraft: Maxed out with optifine, a 128x pack, and seus ultra shaders 60fps Skyrim: Ultra preset 60fps GTAV: Everything on high, msaa-off, textures on very high, 60fps Tomb Raider: Ultra preset 60fps
Basically every game is playable maxed out..
This chip is amazing! It plays every game I have. Not at the best settings (obviously) but at acceptional ones.
It's a great motherboard for the price! The colors aren't really too great on it, but if you're case is closed, you wouldn't even know the difference.
Dirt cheap. Over clocked relatively easily.
Little flimsy on side panels. Includes a fan controller. Decent, but not worth the money
Cheap. Haven't heard it once.
Can be a little loud. But it was dirt cheap ($12 when I got it).
Cheap. Can be a tad loud if turned up too high.
