Client Build Orange Monster. + 23 Touchscreen Under $900

by domzlol

Description

This build is for a client.

This build is for a $600 budget. Use is for Kids games and normal everyday use for surfing the web, youtube, email.. If your Question is Why did i use a 500gb Hard drive? well the answer is because it was free with purchase of the CPU also if your other question why only 1 Stick of 8GB Memory? Well the answer is cause it was free with the motherboard purchase... Wondering why not a stock CPU cooler? well AMD thought it would be a good idea to slap the crappiest stock CPU fan on one of there most hot APUs.. its noisy ugly and very cheaply made..

Here are my scores from a couple weeks ago. i will update them when i get some free time

Your using a benchmark that's used for mobile devices and laptops to inflate your benchmark numbers. Try using 3dmark11 so we can get a better idea of where your builds fall in. It's kind of disingenuous to use the benchmark that gives you the highest possible numbers to make it. The people with comparable gaming rigs are probably using firestrike or 3dmark11 free benchmarking tools.

niiiiice.

what would i change?

maybe just leave the stock cooler on. oh and why win 8 pro?

i love the bitfenix in orange.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 5 points 68 months ago

stock cooler was noisy. and i wanted to give it a cool look.plus the MAD 6600k runs like a oven with the stock cooler cause amds bright engineers thought there 4.0+ GHz cpus will run cool with the stock fan.. lol and Windows 8 Pro is from my (VL) i only have pro. and Thanks! :)

BeardCreep 1 point 68 months ago

gotcha.

maybe you can help me out with something about the prodigy since you build with them...

do you know how many cfm the stock fans push?

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 68 months ago

I want to say 53-56 but i could be wrong. The fans don't say on them. im just going by a guess . But if you find out exactly please let me know!

BeardCreep 1 point 68 months ago

as long as its under 70 my build will be positive pressure. which is all i really need to know.

so 53 is great :P

and if it is a spectre fan, then those numbers are in line with their 120 mil series.

thanks so much

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 68 months ago

Yea Bitfenix Makes come really good fans.. also the green build i did is completely silent... since the new Intel are so efficient and run at like 25-28c on idol.. the loudest thing in the computer is the spin hard drive lol

CbassFishin 3 points 68 months ago

Would have gone with 1866 mhz ram, but it was with the motherboard; good buid.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 3 points 68 months ago

Please Read the description. RAM was FREE!! Thanks :)

Physonium 1 Build -2 points 68 months ago

Why 1866 ram? Really there's not much of a reason to go above 1600 unless they're doing some crazy video/image editing, but it's for kids and web browsing.

senstalex 2 Builds 4 points 68 months ago

Faster ram works much better with the apu graphics than it does with most other applications. There is a noticeable difference in FPS for video games with faster ram. If it wasnt free I would have done as fast as possible. Over 2000 even, but you cant argue with free ram! and kids dont really care too much as long as they can play. :P

MrWhiteMacaroon 1 Build -4 points 68 months ago

it was free, read the description

BeardCreep 2 points 68 months ago

he did read. "but it was with the motherboard"

I'm gonna cry in a minute if I see more of these awesome builds that I may never get to do myself.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 68 months ago

lol well get your tissue box then because i build at least 2 a week lol .Maybe i should upload some of the other builds i haven't gotten around to! ;)

th3m4dh4tt3r 1 Build 1 point 68 months ago

That would be great!

TechKat 1 point 68 months ago

You what? 2 a week? How?

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 2 points 68 months ago

I custom build computers. i also fix computers. this is my job! :) Cant ask for any other better job then to open new computer hardware and play with it lol... i should start a YouTube product review stream but so many people do that already... lol

TechKat 2 points 68 months ago

Aww man... no fair. :P

James710 1 point 60 months ago

God I wish I had your job!!

Really2n2 1 point 68 months ago

Only thing, I would change is the CPU cooler, If you're going on the budget your doing, with a 450 moniter, you need to go with the stock cooler could so you could more or less, get the 6800k. But looks great and it works, that mostly what counts

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

stock cooler with the new 6600k at 3.9- 4.3GHz does not run quiet at all and sounds like a cheap computer. :/ Whoever's bright idea at AMD thought sticking one of thoes crappy stock fans with there new 100+w APUs at 4.0+ GHz has got to be a complete ******.. lol i had the stock fan in there and was cheap looking, loud and ran hot. and thank you! people love the bright color scheme for the kids and even adults !

Really2n2 1 point 68 months ago

Yea, the Stock coolers always sound crappy, but that's what I would have done atleast, but orange and bitfenix always mixed some how

th3m4dh4tt3r 1 Build 1 point 68 months ago

Lookin good! Answered all my questions before I finished scrolling through the description :D

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

lol thanks! :) got to love thos combo deals!

th3m4dh4tt3r 1 Build 1 point 68 months ago

Yep, definitely!

noob_for_life 1 point 68 months ago

Nice build. I probably would have gone witha a10 5800k instead because its the same price and from benchmarks ive seen the new a10 is only a few. Frames better.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

Your Prob Right! the a10 benchmarks a tad bit better for 10 dollhairs more online.

KyleH 1 Build 1 point 68 months ago

Nice build! Just one thing I don't get. Why would you spend $450 on a monitor for a computer that is only ~$475? Seems like a bit of a weird priority.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

nice size screen with touch features. great for home use and kids. and having this case will allow you to add a full size graphics card down the road if they like.

xIMcCloud29Ix 3 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

The monitor seemed extremely expensive for a budget case but then I seen that its a touch screen. Since the build is running on Win 8 can't say anything bad about it. I was reluctant to try Windows 8 and stuck with 7 but I do want to try it out, especially with a touch screen. Nice build

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

whats wrong with windows 8? all you do is install the start button! :)

xIMcCloud29Ix 3 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

I already knew that you could simply change it to be like win 7. I honestly can't say I know windows 7 very very well, so I just didn't go with 8 for familiarity reasons (if that's a word). My next build will most likely feature it.

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

ahh i see. yea once you get use to windows 8 its nice. its very fast and the shortcuts are nice.

Mattyice47 1 Build 1 point 68 months ago

How much RAM where you able to allocate to the iGPU in the A8-6600K?

Mattyice47 1 Build 1 point 68 months ago

Did the CPU work with that Motherboard right out of the box?

domzlol submitter 9 Builds 1 point 68 months ago

yea? y

DooofusChoco 1 Build 1 point 68 months ago

I'm planning to get that A8-6600K. Are the built-in graphics any good? Is there a need to purchase a graphics card(thinking of a HD 7850)? Thanks a lot.

Lex001 1 point 45 months ago

Is it possible to orient the CPU cooler, so it pulls air in from the front of the case, and exhausts the air to the back of the case?

DrTot 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

Where did you get that wallpaper?
