This is the first PC that I have ever built (moving away from pre-built premium prices). I'm planning on upgrading it to a Ryzen 1700 Build in the future but until then, I'm stuck with the FX-8350. Comments and criticisms are welcome as I want to get better at things like cable management, part selection and compatibility etc.
Update: I have now upgraded the graphics card from the original MSI Red Dragon R9 390 card to the MSI Armor OC RX 580 in preparation for my new Ryzen system.
Great radiator, considering my CPU is AMD FX series, cooling is key. Keeps temps between 20 (min) - 30 (max) when idling and then 35 (min) - 40 (max) under load.
Great graphics card that is quite light for its power and excellent cooler, meaning virtually no sag on the card itself. It keeps consistently on the low 20's at idle and low 70's when under load! Performs great at 1080p, giving me 120fps + in virtually any game. It also will always give 60fps + at 1440p gaming!
Has most things you'd want in a Mid Tower case. Side window tick, 240mm and 280mm radiator support on the top and front tick, dust filters on intake locations tick, enough anti-vibration drive bays to suit your needs tick, motherboard tray cut-out for easy CPU cooler mounting tick, sound-proofing tick.
This would be five-stars, but, it's quite difficult to install a 240mm radiator in the front as it's not incorporated correctly, but still possible. Once I did that, I have got 10-12 degrees celsius less on my CPU :)!!!
Use these as exhaust fans in my build. They are great at pushing the hot air out the case at all speeds. However, they are very loud at higher RPM's so I keep them on medium power (around 7V) so that they move air, but are still dead quiet.
Great exhaust fan, moves lots of air, with an attractive red LED.
