Description

Bought the 8350/mobo back from a customer that upgraded.
Bought the 390 in mint condition off CL, turned out to also be a previous customer. Got the SSD out of a $250 system purchase that I am reselling for $350 so it was free. New PSU
New Case
RAM was in my stock
Cooler was refurbished on Newegg

Even though the 8350 is dated and not very good at single threaded applications, it performs very well in AAA title games. I did not bother to OC. I was even able to make some very nice videos with OBS at 1080p @60fps while playing the games (with some settings turned down just a notch) The 390 is still beautiful. Hot and power hungry, it plays all my AAA at ultra or close to it.

The case is very nice. I got it on sale for $60. While it has very nice features, the construction was pretty thin. I was a little disappointing with that but the ground lighting totally made up for it. I really like that touch (picture to post later). I wish I knew the add on light was only $7, I would have ordered it ahead. Overall, the build went VERY easy. Very clean looking, easy cable management. Wish my cable were all black.

The tab on the PCI-E was snapped off so I was worried about the beastly GPU sagging. The case holds it very tight and I made it so the cable pull up rather than down. The shape of the card makes it look like it is sagging hard but it is actually pretty solid.

I thought I got a good deal when I got $10 off on some DDR4 RAM recently. This is ridiculous. +1

Goodness, that is unfortunate. It looks like it is on, regardless on the sag. What a deal though for these parts. Very awesome and great work! +1

seems to be fine, but would always check it after the case is moved for whatever reason. I put it in the second slot on the test bench and got exactly the same 3dmark graphics score. But in the case, the second slot is way to close to the PSU shroud.

That's good to know about the second PCIE slot works and does not hinder the graphic performance. And yes, that is true of it being more close to the PSU.

Please stop bolding every post. It is for emphasis, and doing it in excess is spammy.

Gotta love customer buybacks! Sold a guy my 13 month old 750ti FTW & CX430 PSU for 130$ (What I paid for them including shipping) and then he got the bug to upgrade about two weeks later and messages me that he bought a 950 and wants to sell me back the 750Ti for 40$. Ended up convincing him to return the 950 and keep the 750Ti but he then bought my corsair spec-01 with a front mounted H100i for 160$... There's so much money to be made in the business as i'm sure you know. It's fun haha. Not really an AMD fan but +1 for being in the business.
