Here are just a few quick pictures; sorry I do not own a nice camera so hopefully the Galaxy S4 is good enough.
I got the FX-9370 for the same price as a FX-8350 at the time which is why I went with it. No regrets at all, it’s a wonderful processor. I have turbo-core turned off so it maxes out at 4.4 GHz. Running Prime95 I have never hit over 47c Max. I’m sure that I could run it at its normal clock speeds but so far I do not see a need too and I like things cool.
So this entire build is themed around the color blue, no special reasons just choose blue. Because of this I have become a huge Sapphire graphics card fan. Originally, I started with the Sapphire R9 270x. I have switch to the R9 290 Vapor-X, and it looks wonderful.
I also switched to 140mm top fans, replacing my AF120s for AF140s, and they are quite a bit louder then my 120mm fans. One question I have for those looking at my build, “Is there a fan controller that I can use to control three fans at once without using one of my cases 5.25 bays?” This is because I’m growing a bit tired of fan noise.
So far this machine has run buttery smooth. I have used it for mostly gaming (Max/Ultra everything and 50+ skyrim mods) and college work, a bit of over kill for that basic stuff.
Only one issues so far about three months in. I originally had a OCZ SSD…. Well it crashed 20 days after putting the OS on it, I sent it back and sold it, so I have replaced it with the M500.
I plan on a closed loop water-cooler, Crossfire, and three monitors at a desk when I finally move out. If I go crossfire, I'm most likely going to switch cases to something nicer like the Arc Midi or 450D.
If you have any questions just ask and I’ll get back to them at some point. Thanks for looking
Purchasing of supplies for a new crossfire build has started. I got my eyes on a new case that I'm waiting for it to be released in the states. I have purchased a new HX1000i PSU and H105 Cooler. Several of the old part from this build are also moving to my brother's PC which will be a X4 860k with the old R9 270x. So two new builds by December of 2014.
The system has been taken apart and applied to my new crossfire build. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/LkwV3C
