Description

This is my current build. It has greatly evolved from my first build almost 2 years ago. Only difference between the parts list and my actual build is the RAM I have is actually the HyperX Fury 1866Mhz (Blue). Could not find it in the parts list on here though. It has been great so far, I use it mostly for gaming, and my wife plays some games on it but mostly uses it for web browsing. I have not had any major issues with this build at all, but in all honesty I should have gotten an FX 8350 instead of the 9370. The extra power is not worth the amount of heat this bad boy puts out, and with my needs, I didn't really need it for anything beyond plain bragging rights. The H75 is a good liquid cooler, and it still idles around 40C. I hope AMD releases a better AM3+ processor in the future that is not so hot!

Future Upgrades: SLI Nvidia 970's 500GB SSD

Cant you underclock that processor to get less heat ?

the issue is the voltage used

strangely the FX8370 can push higher than the 9590 on the same voltages as the 9370 and 9590

+1 for using the Air 540. I love those cases.

Yes! Only difference is I have two 8GB sticks, but otherwise that's it.

AMD is not releasing any more am3+ chips, that's why amd currently has no upgrade path.

The new Am4 will have 12 cores with a base clock of 6ghz which is insane and only uses 75 watts from what people determined now the price its most likley going to be around 200-300$ sadly

Im actually not sure. I just remember it wasn't expensive, and got it at Wal-Mart a few years ago. Just kinda worked out that this case fit perfectly there.
