Description

This was a half gaming half CAD work build for a friend of the family. The build went flawlessly, and it's still performing to this day. This build was completed in Oct 2012.

Nice, I would get an aftermarket cooler, some of that CAD stuff can get a lil intense, Should probably upgrade to Corsair H60 or even an H100i

Or a Phanteks PH-TC-12DX or Cooler Master Hyper 212 if he wants cheaper air cooling

??? Cad is a single threaded application. Nothing will really heat up on the CPU. Stock would be fine for every day CAD work. Should have went INTEL if you were building a CAD workstation (But you went gaming and CAD). The increase in single threaded performance would help a lot. E3-1230 v2/3 are the best for CAD in a more budget build.

3ds Max uses more than one core and the FX-8350 compares well with the Intels for the price. And the stock is so loud.

I was comparing it for just CAD.

Solid, great cable management and good part choice. Could've gone with the 8120 as it's basically the same and saved some money but oh well!

+1 for sure

Either one, both are 8 cores

The 8320 is much better.

Mhm, you should've gone for the 8320, since they're both essentially the same with the 8320 having a slower clock speed, but they overclock the same. BTW, yeah the 8120 is based on the Bulldozer architecture, which is terrible compared to the 8320's Piledriver architecture. :P

Is that video card actually that quiet?
