Description

This is my 2nd Pay It Forward Build

Without going deep into a backstory, I have not known Jay all of our lives but it definitely can feel that way sometimes. It has actually only been since 2003 or so, a few years outside of graduating from high school. He is my brother from another mother through and through now, nothing less. I have always tried to help him when I could, whether he wanted it or not.

He never owned any full custom computers, just hand me downs and OEM builds so I decided to help him out as soon as I could. He’s going from a AMD A6 APU to a FX-9590, 6GB of ram to 16GB, among other awesome parts for a full upgrade. Which includes his first SSD, which saves lives in my opinion, it did mine, it’s hard to accept the past of HDD’s once you own a SSD. This build is something I felt he really needed to do some of things he loves to do but can be a struggle on a low budget computer. He likes to create music, edit videos and game so this build is perfect.

Jay has always been a gamer though before anything, first gaming experience was back in the Atari days. 1984 playing River Raid and Astrosmash with his dad. Then moved on to the Nintendo with Mario Bros and it continued from there owning many consoles to game on and of course PC gaming. He also hung out in arcades a lot, so he would save all of his lunch money from school to have quarters to play his favorite games. He did indeed have a new PC experience recently which his previous A6 build but nothing like what was built for him.

The build reveal was perfect and exactly what I expected. Many feels,

I had to step away for a moment because the thought of someone caring this much about me was emotional

Alright, enough boring you with the details, I hope you enjoy the pictures, thanks for checking it out.

I would like to thank AMD, Asus, Sapphire, Corsair, @Seagate, @tORN_TV, @Walking_Corpse9 and @NBroadsword for the help on this build. It is appreciated immensely.

I've never had anyone who genuinely cares that much. And I was at loss for words and I had something in my contacts (that I don't wear) I had to wipe out my eye.

Yes, the only real "Furnace" everyone keeps talking about.

*I really couldn't think of anything funny at the moment

We have the same CPU and motherboard! :D Nice choice, I don't see a lot of people with a 9590 here.

  • 48 months ago

Yes. :D Thank You

Will not see a lot of people with it because of a lot of people complain about the TDP being way too high and I agree. It's really for people who want something fast but don't want to overclock themselves, in my opinion. 8350 is just a good and 8370 and any /e series.

Zen will fix all of that, along with Polaris :)

I have 2x9590 in my home http://pcpartpicker.com/p/VG9yjX http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pXQZ6h

I wanted to wait for Zen but I didn't have it in me, I made my first build recently.

As long as you have a good case for air flow and a liquid cooler a 9590 should be no problem. Whenever people complain about the 9590 I see them using a cheap 20 dollar AIR fan, no liquid cooling in sight. People won't go the extra step to make sure it's safe to run then complain when AMD burns down their house.

Nice! I'll check those out now, are those builds for you or for your wife/child? My boyfriend and I wanted to do twin builds lmao.

Yeah the CM 120XL is okay, so is any 120mm AIO but it is definitely best to go 240mm AIO or the monster Noctua Air Cooler, IMO.

Just builds for me and my brother.

My brother had the A10-7850K APU build done for him by AMD Red Team Plus, before I joined. It's on my profile somewhere.

Nope, just for me and my brother that I look after. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/mwQV3C

:)

Zen should be amazing! :) but I understand, I am not a waiting person. lol It's just sucks waiting!

10/10 hahaha nice build man, so you're on AMD Red Team? What does that mean exactly?

You build - builds out of AMD parts?

Yeah he got the name from a local radio station DJ gave it to him because he would always be requesting songs to different girls (girlfriends) almost weekly. Which was many years ago and he still does it.

Both of those builds look solid, but the first link - that motherboard isn't compatible with a FX 9590. There's only like 3 - 4 motherboards that handles it.

  • 48 months ago
  • 2 points

No worries they are compatible :)

I know quite a few ppl with the UD3 Rev 1.0 to Rev 4.0 that run it just fine. Sometimes ppl can receive one with a bad vrm connection like I did but it handles it just fine for gaming.

If too hot then a fan on the vrm heatsink will do the trick. There are some 970 motherboards out there that can handle it as well. I didn't think it would either but UD3 is beast for budget. Supported CPU list can confirm. :)

My 2nd PC in my home though is filled with cat pictures for some reason, I think he has been using it while I sleep.

Where is the cat in the part list?

He came bundled with the cooler, was not a separate purchase to add to list.

Very touching story ... It reminds me of my own personal experience ...

I had to build my PC in the kitchen to my housemates dismay. I told them I can't build it in my own room since it's so dry and carpeted, every time I touch my doorknob there, I can feel a zap. I don't want to give our precious baby machine the finger of death ...

The kitchen was cold. I have to touch the ground every 3 minutes to reduce the risk of ESD. After 3 hours I felt the ninjas started to cut onions ...

The last ESD sensitive device I was about to install was the GPU ... but I have no more HP ... until ... my wife took all the ESD charge from me ...

Thank You very much :)

Could always invest in a anti-static wrist band, pretty cheap and should do the job. :D

Perks of knowing people that love helping others :)

That is what I paid for the parts that I purchased out of pocket, the rest was sponsored by those I have thanked. My AMD Team Leader hooked most of it up through the companies. The others was from friends and those who wanted to help make a persons pc experience that much brighter :)

Lol I can't lie, I'm jealous right now. I'm tryna myself a computer strictly for music production so I wish I knew some people like this lmao.

AMD and Red Team Plus is always doing giveaways weather it be on the AMD Forum, Twitter and Twitch. If you prefer Intel, EVGA does quite a few giveaways as well on their twitch usually x99 motherboards. Sapphire for twitch does giveaways.

I know it's not the same as knowing people or getting help and/or sponsor but it's always an option to take a step forward for yourself or others in need. :)
