Description

Yo nerds,

This is my old wicked Gaming PC that destroyed my old build Bean. They were both at the same price, but the problem was that this build was VERY LOUD. The 8320 screams! I had to DE-clock it and lower down the fan speeds just to get comfortable sound levels. I would definitely recommend this build only for gaming, because its not meant for recording or streaming. Also get a new CPU cooler if getting this build. Just a warning.

Part Reviews

CPU

Stock fan is very loud. Its worth it, only if you get it under $120, then it would be bang 4 buck CPU.

Motherboard

Sweet looking board and there were no problems.

Memory

Sweet looking ram with no problems.

Video Card

Very strong for the price!

Case

Sweet looking case, but really cheap feeling.

Power Supply

Reliable and cheap.

Operating System

GET WINDOWS 10 ITS WORTH IT.

Replace the cooler and case fans. For the fans I would recommend the Enermax UCTB12P. Those things perform well, are not too expensive, and are really quiet. I would then throw in a Scythe Kotetsu CPU cooler, which is $40 off Outlet PC when you have some extra cash. Also very quiet and performs well. Otherwise, awesome build!

this build is capable of streaming and recording, just need to change the stock cooler to something more appropriate

Extremely nice cable management. You used your budget wisely.

I'd dremel and cut out a bigger side panel just for aesthetics, PSU could be better since you are running power hungry parts. That particular EVGA 500W isin't the best, might wanna check out its more reliable brother 500B/600B models.

the amd 8 core series (more of the 8350 lines and up) should never be used on a stock cooler, gets to hot and the stock could never dissipate enough heat. Otherwise, badass build go amd!!!

Get more bang for the buck if you get a 212 evo and overclock.

Hey bro can take a pic and upload it, where you look at it directly like this, but lower your camera

So i can see how will CPU cooler and RAM look through window?
