I built this pc to do basic things run Reaper DAW fl studio and occasional blender renders and games... Base clock set @ 3.8 1.15 volts and turbo on auto llc at 35% turbos to 4.18 ghz and Vcore hits 1.248 ish and with load drops to about 1.12 v and stays below 45C at all times but this case has to have the front panel removed when rendering video or gaming... motherboard reports never getting above 32 C but I put mosfet heat sinks on all mosfets... if I did it again I’d buy a used motherboard with a better power for the v core... or leave my self the ability to upgrade later... the data rate is ok cause I run a raid 0 or bios “fake” raid... oh, and maybe buy a modular gold rated power supply wasn’t really caring about flashy things or cable management just trying for as cheap and fast as I could for my needs...

That isn't how fans work.

This is epic

I see you bought two 1 TB HDDs, so your reference to speed is by implementing a RAID 1 parity? Looks like a fairly well balanced system that gets the job done. I don't care about pretty cables either- so you got it, balance + good price. Congrats

Oh and it’s not to loud but I run it with an hdmi and usb hub over two cat 6 cables in the other room... silently

It was ok for a first full build... just my first build was an 4300 fx with an old case and I wanted a 8350 at the time but the “new” am3+ with the right phase power are all discontinued now... and the fans are on powered hubs that match the rpm not just haphazardly wired to the headers
