Description

First of all I would like to give my thanks to everyone that helped picking computer parts for me especially PCPP forum. I didn't really go all out when I bought the parts even though I have extra money to maybe picked a better cpu/mobo/gpu but I'm happy with what I have now. I am 20 y.o and this is my first ever moderate pc gaming + ANIME ofc :D. I only play games like Dota 2 and mmorpg games + streaming. If you want to play dota together just add me on steam or just simply want to be anime friends :) http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198065828448/

If you ask why I put Senbonzakura as title is because I got inspired by an anime. I think the color of sakura is just so pretty and I had this idea in mind to put a pink led inside case. I have not put the led on yet because I'm still waiting for it to arrived, I will update this when its ready.

The new monitor is on the left. I used my old one which is samsung for my main display.

EDIT: LED finally came in and installation went successfully.

Part Reviews

CPU

I had a dilemma whether to picked 6300 or 8320. I did some research my self and got some opinions from people that 6300 is just underclocked of 8320, so I can just overclocked the 6300 to get the same result as 8320. Overall 6300 is all I need basically + its cheaper.

I have not overclocked the cpu yet because I ran out of money, which is why I didn't include the cpu cooler. But I will buy CM hyper 212 evo in the future when I have money.

Motherboard

Great mobo and good combo with 6300. Have all the features I needed.

Storage

This is the first time ever I used an SSD as windows boot device. It only takes literally 2-3 secs to boot really really fast holy shi*.

Storage

Basic HDD, enough storage for what I need.

Video Card

Now this is the best part of the system. I had so many people telling me to get a better video card like 280/x-290, 660-770. I have done a research on this particular GPU and some said its bad and some said that its good. IMHO this video card is best bang for bucks/performance trust me.

I'm not sure what is the hate for this GPU, people said that this is trash and shouldn't exist, but I think they just don't know what they are talking about and they haven't tried the GPU themselves.

Anyway, this card have a great features such as the fan system not turning on while idling, temps are great, unique design, and doesn't consume much power.

Temp of the card when idle is around 37-44 C, under load is around 55 ish C and fan turn on about 30%.

Really overall I'm happy with this card I threw every game I have on steam (that are not demanding) and some other mmorpg on max settings and get 60fps

Case

Great case, nice design, high quality paint, great air flow, great cable management.

Power Supply

Its seasonic, everyone know how good they are.

Case Fan

Deliver best air flow throughout the case.

Monitor

Basic monitor for gaming/browsing.

Very pretty build. I am also a "moderate" anime fan, and I like how you named your build. Neat cable management, and very stylish case. Build is fine for a budget build. It's not a "monster" but i'm sure it gets the job done. In overall, sweet build!

josh95 submitter 1 Build 2 points 32 months ago

Thanks, yeah for some people out there this pc might not be a monster, but for me its my 1080p little monster :) haha

The 6320 is not at all anything like the 8320... The 6320 has 6 cores and the 8320 has 8... you cannot overclock a 6 core to perform as well as an 8 core. Please do your research next time.

josh95 submitter 1 Build 2 points 32 months ago

Well overclocked 6300 will give close if not same results as 8320 in term of gaming other than that 8320 will win because of the extra 2 cores.

I don't care what anyone on God's Green Earth says. Unless your OCed CPU is running on wizard magic, 6 cores WILL NEVER be as good as 8 in multi-threaded performance.

I love builds with unique names like this.

I also love it since I'm an anime fan haha.

glich610 2 Builds 2 points 22 months ago

Looks great! You like anime, I like anime. You play Dota, I play dota (on hiatus until I finish my build). +1

josh95 submitter 1 Build 1 point 22 months ago

Nice build! How quiet is the NZXT S340 case?

josh95 submitter 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

I would say on load it gets a little bit noisy because I still using the stock fans for back and top exhaust. The 2 Noctua I used as intake in front is pretty quiet on load. Overall its a pretty good case, lot of room, and cheap.

Olliver_Aira 1 point 16 months ago

How noisy would you say it is`? Are you able to listen to music using some kind of desk speaker without hearing the bizz from the fans???

Also is the fans that come with the case enough to cool down your entire build? Or would you recommend buying extra ones???

Best regards Olliver :)

Fez___ 1 point 22 months ago

Is it quiet? Thinking of getting this case and I'm very particular about sound, does much noise escape or is it very low?

josh95 submitter 1 Build 1 point 22 months ago

Oh man you won't believe it. This case is the best case for the bucks. Its one of the most popular case people would buy.

I have 4 noctua fans running full power, hyper 212 evo, and I hear nothing. No noise at all.

Deepia 1 point 21 months ago

Love the build! I get the name reference. Haha, I love anime.

SKY_LORD 1 point 19 months ago

BRO I SAY GET A DIFFRENT GPU (not cuz its trash cuz i found a better bang for buck gpu wich ou wont get hated on for using radeon 380 4gb i cant remeber maker) but i made the same build in my enginiering class and used it for a little and ye its a good build (if you only play dota and mmorpgs bigger games the frames sometimes drop to 10!)

Xorex64 1 point 18 months ago

Nice, but AS5 is not the best, not by a long shot. The value is crap too.

I love the name, im an animu (akidearest reference) fan too!

XxDonnie 1 point 16 months ago

Pros: Very good build, Sweet wallpapers (btw where can I find those?)

Cons: Look at dat cable management :/ ( my face when I saw it http://i1.wp.com/media.japanpowered.com/images/kaichou-wa-maid-sama-ep-24-2.jpg )
