A friend of mine picked up most of these parts through local bargain hunting and ebay. He asked me to build it for him. I was honored to.
When your ram cooler is bigger than your cpu cooler…
$40 for a AM3 mobo? That's as much as your CPU. Good build otherwise
Yeah, as I said, I did not purchase these parts myself. I just built it!
Good budget build, for $229 you should be relatively happy with the performance. I'm curious, if you had to purchase the stock cooler and paid $5 for it, why not just just spend a few more $$ for something like this? I would have spent the money on that instead of a RAM cooler, but that's just my opinion. Aside from that, the prices are good for what you got.
Honestly, I agree with you about the cooler. I did not buy these parts, I just built it for a friend.
Is the ram overclocked? That would be the most logical reason for the cooler.
Honestly, it just looks cool, regardless.
Yes it does. But no anime.
I like it and I'm liking the corsair ram cooler in this build. Your friend did a good job bargain hunting. +1
Nice, 10/10 case
