Description

Built this over the course of the semester, currently use it in my dorm in college for some gaming action. The fx-6300 is fairly good honestly does well enough to run most games at high settings with the gtx 960. I play mostly games like dying light, skyrim, LOL, witcher3, warframe, and many others... lol. I started the build with the case I liked the look of it on newegg and couldn't resist buying it when it went on sale. Cable management wasn't too bad on the case some of the cables I had to route right through the middle of the motherboard so they would reach but my cable extensions helped allot with that aspect with most of the power connections. The cooler master barely fit in the case there is probably a cm gab between it and the clear panel, so don't get anything taller if you use this case. Overall it still went together very smoothly would recommend the case and build for someone with a budget in mind. The atron vision monitor runs at 144hz so that's always a plus as well, and can even be overclocked easily but haven't done any overclocking on the monitor or the PC yet. The case currently has 5 fans installed 3 being the stock fans so they aren't as good or quiet as the corsair af120 fans I installed but the airflow is solid I haven't had any heating issues whatsoever so I'm content with the stock ones being in there for now. I just use speedfan to keep the fans quiet. Overall am very happy with the build so far and have not come across any issues!

-As a side note the stock fans put off a purple looking light in the pictures but to the naked eye they are the same color as the corsair fans

A PCPP rule is: every user on PCPP must have at least ONE AMD build.

Nice build this processor still rocks! I could OC mine at 4.6Ghz...almost 2 years without any problem. Playing all in high settings, etc.

In college, probably couldn't afford the 1060. The 900 series is still more than good enough, I don't know why people are so persistent on builds having the newest gen. Hell, even the 700 series does well in most games.

Yea mostly got the 960 for the price, it was a sweet deal. The rx 470 at the time was allot more expensive. Plus a nicer graphics card might get bottlenecked from the 6300

1050ti shouldn't but I totally get why you played it safe, just on the off chance it did bottleneck.

1050 and 470 would not get bottlenecked. 480 might but not much.
