Is the 350m different from the 350 full ATX as far as the VRMs go?

I haven't benched the 10k HDD but it gets loud. It's probably the loudest part in the system at this point in time. I'm heavily considering a SSD in the future, though! Thank you!!

Didn't mean to come across that way. Was just happy with my build. Sorry!!! :o

Check the Facebook Marketplace. It's usually riddled with computer noobs so you can find decent deals.

Gotta do what you gotta do I guess. I figured some people would be opposed to it, but... meh! Have a safe an prosperous year, friendo.

Thank you! I don't mess with the voltage much and I keep it at around 3.8 most of the time seems fine thus far, but I will look into it! :)

I don't keep it on unless I'm recording video and need my face not to be washed out. If I have it on otherwise it irks me a little, haha!

Thank you!!

I've had 2 barracudas die. Maybe it's just the barracudas. I've had a bunch of drives go bad in general though, just never a WD.

Could just be my luck. Haha.

I love this build! I will say that I wish you'd have picked up a WD HDD. I've had a few bad experiences with Seagate, and I know MANY MANY people that have had the same experiences. Especially with the Barracuda line.

It makes sense if you're upgrading from Ivy Bridge, but it doesn't offer much of a change from Haswell. Sorry for seemingly making an *** of myself I had made the assumption you had a Haswell chip before. I should probably learn to read rather than skimming and talking out of my bum.

Nice build! Should be great for a good while!

Only if there isn't a marginal difference in price.

Skylake is barely an improvement over Haswell... We're talking single digit performance differences. I guess it's cool if you have the money... but it's not worth it to me.

Regardless, nice PC!

Well, I hate to be that guy... but Direct X 12 is really gonna hurt your Nvidia cards. Maxwell cards won't support one of the most beneficial parts of the API. You'd have been better off to have bought two 290x's and CrossFired them.

2 weeks ago, I'd have been impressed though, because until that news was announced the 980ti was god tier in my mind.

I put together my first build not too long ago on the same premise. Budget build with salvaged and used parts. Has been running great.

Good job on using the salvaged parts, but you definitely paid too much for that FX-6300, I got mine for $85 last month.

Yeah, I'd have gone with the 2x4GB too, but a lot of people don't do a huge amount of research before they build. I guess it isn't that big of a deal, though.

Get a 960 if you absolutely have to have Nvidia, get a 280, 280x, HD7970, or 380 if you're ok with AMD. They all out perform the 960, and are in around the same price range.

If you can score a HD 7970 from someone that's been lightly used that's gonna be the best bang for your buck.

Also, consider the FX-6300 if you're on a tight budget. It's a good CPU and will perform great with DirectX 12.

Definitely looks like some clean cable management. Pretty awesome build, man.

Comment reply on DSA_Echo_'s Completed Build: Nightmare

You picked an unfortunate time to build with all of the price drops in the following months, but for what you were given market-wise, it's a good build. The cable management wonky, but I'm assuming the case didn't leave much head room for hiding anything.

I just put my first build together a few months back. I was on a $400ish dollar budget, but had some spare parts. Nothing is more rewarding than customizing/building something yourself.

I just had fun picking and choosing the components to get the best bang for my buck.

PS I'm a fan of your build, I saw it when I first started using this site a few months back. Still one of the cleanest builds I've ever seen.

Awesome job, man.

Stock fan noise isn't a problem. I'm not sure which I'll upgrade first but I'll eventually pick, haha.

I used a copy of Windows my friend had bought for a PC that he never used because he ended up buying a prebuilt.

If you want to legally get windows for free, go sign up for the Windows 10 preview.

Use the beta version (free) until the 29th when the official release comes out. The update will be free to all preview members.

It's fine at standard speed but it's cool to have the ability to overclock.

I had planned on getting a cooler and OCing from the beginning but it wasn't in the base budget until after I found the CPU for a little less.

By then I had already ordered the keyboard, but very soon I'll buy a cooler and OC that sucker.

Good point. I will definitely be getting an SSD in the future. It'll probably be my first real "upgrade" if I don't end up getting a Hyper 212 Evo to overclock first.

Thanks for the feedback!

Have you tried using Rufus to create a bootable thumb drive? It allows you to burn the ISO right to the thumb drive and worked like a charm for me.

Yeah, I salvage all I can. No use in letting everything go to waste if it still works!

Thank you, it's run everything recent I've thrown at it so far on high/ultra at 40/60fps average with no overclocking at all.

Its working out pretty well, and yeah it does look like a transformer is gonna bust out at any given moment, haha. I got it because it was on sale and had plenty of drive ports/room for everything, and also came with 2 fans and pretty good amount of fan mounts. Plus dust filters.

I wasn't 100% sure what to go with in a case, but for now it workshop. :P

Thank you! I tried to manage everything as best I could.

It was a little difficult with the PSU not being modular, but I tried to tidy it all up.

I'm going to have to agree on the HDD statement. Looking back now that's probably the one thing I'd have changed.

Thank you!

Yeah, when i decide to overclock my CPU I'll probably get a 212 Evo. My first upgrade will probably be a SSD sometime soon.

Overall nice build, I'm currently putting together a relatively similar build with a lower budget. One question though. If you bought the FX-6300, why didn't you grab a Cooler Master 212 so you could overclock for better performance? With that CPU being unlocked it's perfect for overclocking on an after market CPU cooler.
