Overall not a bleeding edge assortment of parts, but an overwhelming great price to performance build.
FX 8350 is an amazing deal, again I know its older, but it games and does everything I ask my i7 does just as well. And actually runs cooler than my i7 (4770k) due to beter thermal transfer. I actually won this chip at a V-LAN so the cost was just right... See below..
H100i This pulled this off my i7 when I started my custom loop on that build, had not been overwhelmingly impressed with the performance until I slapped it on my FX chip. After gaming for 3 to 4 hours, max temp I have seen is 46.
Gigabyte 990 FXA UD3 Great motherboard, mine is a Rev. 3, which is less desirable then a Rev. 4 but got mine sealed new in box for a great price and unknow what revision it was. I gambled and ended up with a 3, so far no issues at all, updated bios, and runs like a champ.
GSkill Sniper Ram, GSkill is a great company that makes great ram, and the sniper series is no diffrent. This 2133mhz 8gb kit is awesome, very fast, XMP profile found all the settings with no issues.
Seagate is my favorite HDD brand, so i picked up a 600 SSD from them and runs great, very fast on par with my Smasung EVO. Why they no longer make thatm I have no idea but too bad I really like mine. 2tb HDD for games and what-not.
XFX R9 290, now this was no surprise of performance, its a beast, no issues running Ultra settings on BF4 at good frame rates at my (yes yes i know OLD) 1920 x 1200 monitor, but allow it to "optimize" the settings it drops a few settings to high while leaving most to ultra and got a bit of a frame boost.
This case, wow it is a pleasure to do a quick super sanitary build in with little to no real effort. As a builder who takes serious pride about the computers that I put my hands in to, its almost unfair that its so easy to build clean with little to no effort. The HDD sleds have passthrough SATA and power so you dont need to run any extra cables in to the clean side.
PSU EVGA NEX 750G, I ended up with a couple of these, older multiple rail style but run just perfect for me no issues at all.
Cougar Fans I would put these up against any Corsair AF/SP fans, not quite as quiet as Noctuas but move plenty of air.
All in all, dollar for dollar, I challenge you to find a better gaming or all around power house for less money.
White panel LEDs, added 3 of these to light up the insides as I love to look at them, found these on ebay for 12 of these panels for about 20 bucks shipped. Added a DVI to D-Sub adapter for scale.
