Description

So this pc is the result of frustration when i bought a pre-built "gaming pc" 2 years ago.(from ironside computers). it had a gtx 760 and a athlon 750 in it. the thing was screaming everytime i would play bf4 and 40 fps was not where i wanted to be. this is where the birthing of this pc started. i began learning about assembling computers from LTT tek syndacate and pcpp. What i wanted from the new computer was max settings over 100fps in majority of titles. i also wanted an fx eight core because at the time the prices for an i7 (which was my other option) were way out of my price range. and the wow factor of saying i got a 8 core 4.7ghz clocked processor in my rig. and as far as the 970s go i bought the first one with christmas money last year and the second one this year. and i know 1 single more powerful card is better but the 970s scale really well. the original case i had came with the prebuild (raidmax cobra z) and i was using that with my new parts i.e. cpu, cpu cooler, MB, ram, 1. 970, a cx750m, ssd, toshiba drive, both recycled from my prebuild. this year i got the master case pro 5 and i love it. everything from the cable management holes, to the drive cage modular design, and the ssd rails. after i got the second 970 i used a kill-a-watt meter to see what i was drawing from the wall 700w under full load so the cx750m wasnt going to do it so i got my overkill beast of a power supply but reasonably priced g2 power supply the 7 year warranty is really what made me buy it. as far as assembly went it was a breeze everything went into the right spots it posted first try. the one weird thing that i do have with it is that i have to press the power button twice because the first press only flashes it on the immediately back off but the second press works just fine. dont know whats gonig on but it still works so its fine. the only other difficult thing about this build was the power supply bracket, for some reason the screws to the case would not align but i think it was just to do with the foam on the power supply rails. but other than that it was a lot of fun and defiantly will be doing again. and please dont tell me i could have built a better pc for cheaper I ALREADY KNOW. but for some reason i just went with amd.

Good to see an AMD processor. Was contemplating the 9590 but went with an i7 due to cooling and temps. I will wait for Amd's new high end processor.

Yeah I had this chip for over a year I am really excited for dx12 in games to use more cores then it maybe more practical. But as for temps it never goes over 70c but that was with really low fan speed I love the nepton 120xl very effective

I personally think the 8350 is a high as anybody should ever go, but clearly you have everything handled ok!

Still a bit too high for my liking. My i7 on a 4 hr load is at 45 degrees and fan at 70%. Hopefully AMD will provide something similar.

Only 45 huh... I'd like to know that stress test XD

About 20 degrees room temp, 4790 with a hyper212x, 1 front intake fan, 1 side lower intake fan, above is open grill and 1 outtake on back. All 120mm. Running all apps wont put much on the CPU as much as SW Battlefront all on high or rainbow seige at high.

Have you tried running a stress test like prime 95? I thought my temps were ok then a saw those...

What temps are too high? I have a 9590 and it's running cool during gaming with no problem.

The reason why i didnt get a 9590, cos you need a monster cooler and for me i want my cpu underload no more than 50

h10GTi works like a charm, 100$ and the water doesn't need to be changed. I also bought a case with 8 fans for more airflow, is there any sites that can show me how hot the 9590 usually gets? :0

I was going across toms hardware and seems like 70 under load is normal, they idle at 35-40. Maybe bump your fan up a few %.

Everything is lower for me. I idle at 20 - 30, I never go over 49 when gaming.

I'm using a single 120mm rad and it works great

What made you choose the 9590 when it falls so far behind intel with 8x the heat

Really? It is just as fast for me and a decent liquid cooling system will keep it cool.

Budget was the only limiting factor at the time I bought it is had 700 usd and I wanted a better graphics card
