Description

Got a pretty awesome build for a pretty great price! The PC it self was around $1100 Canadian, with all the other parts around $1700, renders fast and can still be great use while under load! Not the best GPU, But since I spent all my money on this build, will be upgrading soon, built this all my self, no troubles at all, low noise, and well cable managed, so far, in love with this build! By the way, for anyone wondering, I am reposting this because of my screw-up on the RAM and the psu!

I had an old 1st generation Intel core I7 920, Top of the line at the time, but years later, it was time to retire. I wanted good speed for rendering videos for YouTube and doing Photoshop as a hobby, and the AMD FX 8350 fits my needs perfectly. With its 8 cores rendering is great and does not lag while under load. I am not looking to do any overclocking anytime soon, but I do not know about the future.

the FX-8350 is fine, what should change and RAM or better change the DDR3 1333 and take another 2133, then I suggest a GTX 960

The point about the RAM is that when mismatched it will run at the slower speed. For Photoshop and rendering videos I understand why you want 16GB but matching your RAM is a good idea.

I was trying to figure out where you have installed the BitFenix fans as I was hoping you might elaborate on your air-flow concept.

Thanks for sharing your build.

Cool. I've still got an i7 920 and aice atx board in my closet. I'm pitching it too. That chip was a mediocre i7, but would over clock up to 4.2 with the right settings and the cooler would work overtime trying to keep it from bursting into flames. I think your 8350 will serve you well. Home come you used the 3 sticks of mismatched ram? I tried that once as well and got BSOD a few times. Had to keep same speed and size matched. Smart taking the word beast out. Makes people groan on here. Have fun with your pc. +1

You should flip your PSU so fan is facing down... this way it intakes cold air from the bottom and is not fighting for air with the GPU and getting warm air from inside the case. It will really help this PSU which really doesn't like heat.

Ok, will probably look into doing so, thanks for your tip :)

Ah I see, stopped about half way down the first paragraph as déjà vu was messing with my hungover brain :)

Also what is up with the miss-matched RAM?

The 8320e would be the perfect cpu for your mobo (970 chipset).

Yeah I know, but I got the mobo and cpu as a combo deal at NCIX, so it worked out great :)
