So this went pretty smooth for me. I had to build it in a rush so there aren't many pictures or benchmarks. All hardware seems to be working as it should, I haven't run any games yet. Only done some heavy multitasking and data manipulation. It's been very good at it.
This is my first time using AMD so I didn't know what to expect. I was hunting for offers for a few months so when MicroCenter was giving away the CPU for 100 bucks I jumped in. I think I did well, but I'm sure you guys will prove me wrong. Most of the shopping was done about a month ago, so keep that in mind when looking at prices.
Some of the parts that have a price of 0 come from another build that didn't go as planned. I ended up with some left over parts so I put them to good use here for a while until upgrade season arrives.
I wanted a energy efficient but rather capable machine to do some photo editing and to finally arrange all the mess that I have with my data. I have 5+ hard drives from several laptops and external storage from years of living out of a suitcase. So this is where it all comes together and hopefully things will get straightened out. I do maintain several backups outside of this PC, and for the future I wan't to build a NAS but gotta make some greens before... I also wanted the ability to consume media in 3D which this does pretty well.
Power consumption of the PC only (No monitor) tends to be around 100 Watts. I have seen it hit 250 under some heavy multitasking but you wouldn't even notice it.
It's really quiet, I have it inside of the closet, I turn it on from the keyboard so I don't really need to open the door at all. You can't even hear it.
I don't know what else to say, if you guys have questions do fire away.
Edit: Added idle power consumption pic....
