Confused about the locked and undervolted CPU with a overclocking-optimized motherboard, also why the 900W PSU? Otherwise great build and nice cable management :)
Don't listen to fsma92, this build at max load, overclocked won't pull more than 450W. Great part choice BTW :)
That is something Intel fanboys usually say but from my experience with any AMD processor (FX and APU) the tempuratures aren't acceptable on the stock cooler. Monitoring the temps is nearly impossible because of the bad quality tempurature sensors AMD uses and I find they kick out a lot more heat because AMD just gives the processors loads of voltage by default to reach clock speeds so they can compete with Intel. I am not an Intel fanboy but any PC enthusiast can admin that Intel makes much more temperature and power efficient processors.
Not necessarily, I have the 250GB Samsung 840 EVO aswell and personally I only have about 100GB used usually. Some people just don't need very much storage.
Guy's it is obviously not for gaming since any normal gamer wouldn't have a Intel Xeon Phi card in their system and the name includes "Dev Build" so that's why he has the 32GB of RAM.
@OP please post more pictures and a better description though.
I'm going to have to disagree with you on your PSU opinion. Antec, Corsair XFX and Seasonic are all great PSU brands and the HX series is very well built.
You put the wrong CPU cooler BTW. Just remove the CPU cooler from the list and everyone will know that you use the stock Intel one. The one you put isn't a stock Intel one.
Very nice salvage build. Nice to see some builds on here that aren't crazy $4000 gaming builds XD
Great work! I know this may be very hard to put together but I would love to see a system implemented into PCPartPicker where users that have been registered for a certain amount of time and a certain amount of comment/build up-votes to be able to add item data to items with missing or incorrect data. This may be really hard to make but I would love to see this and I think it would really add to the helpfulness of PCPartPicker.
Will dual PSU support be here soon? I know it's really rare to need 2 but personally I would rather have 2 750W PSU's than 1 huge 1500W one.
PS: Nice to see Fan Controllers on here now :)
Just built my cousin pretty much the exact same build XD.
Only difference is I used a Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 instead of a Asus M5A97 R2.0, but otherwise it's identical LOL.
