Description

As the title suggests this is what replaced my Xbox one. The only trouble I had with this build was with the cord management for the Graphics Card. The cord the connects to the power supply has two more 4 pin ends that you really can't do any thing with and it ends up pressing up right on the glass window. Other than that building it went really smooth and I ended up having it up and running in a little over two hours.

Motherboard

Great for overclocking and a great value over all. The only complaint I have is the driver software comes with some bloatware ( ASROCK App Store and A Norton Trial) and makes it hard to opt out of it.

AT least the red light does not mean death on this bad boy!

Have you considered an aftermarket CPU cooler? You have an unlocked CPU and you shouldn't let it go to waste.

Yeah man, get an after-market cooler for the CPU. It'll be totally worth it. Other than that, nice build.

how's the 380 handle gaming wise? Your parts are very even and you future proofed your build for a few years even. +1

I agree, he's replacing an xBox One, this is a decent build that will allow for future upgrades. Let's be honest, to replace an Xbox, he could have just put a turd in a case and it would work better!

I know you answered about the gaming question, but how is the R9 380 in general when you use it from easy processes to intense uses when gaming? Is it quiet? How are the temperatures? Otherwise, great build! +1

This whole build has been surprisingly quiet in fact the only fan noise I can usually hear comes from the case fan. As for the temperatures the Graphics Card runs at about 32 C under light load and it gets up to 76 C under heavy load.

Make sure to keep us posted on how well the 380 is working. I haven't seen the 300 series in too many builds yet and I'm curious to see how well they are :D

I just made a build with a few same parts and I wanted to know if mines is good, and how good is the video card because so far I've heard so many good things about it.
