+ Total (United Kingdom):
Step 1- find old case
Step 2- chuck some parts inside
Step 3- close case and never open again.
Edit- some zip ties may be within budget.
Dude this is spectacular cable management, teach me.
Title checks out.
man i wish my cable management was this good
Nice work! I have a dell case sitting around. I may have to copy your methods.
I think I had an aneurysm. Nice.
How was the performance with the FX 8350 and the 1060. Was there any bottle necking and could it game? (I have no frame of reference for the 8350)
I can't afford any recent titles to test that. It ran portal 2 on max settings @290 fps
I had an FX8350 and a GTX 970 (within about 10% of the 1060's performance) and for 1080p I didn't have any trouble with a majority of games. The ones that hit my FX hard were CPU intensive games like Witcher 3 (45FPS high settings) and Fallout 4 (40-60FPS high settings). When I upgraded to Ryzen, the first few months I continued using that same GTX 970 with my new Ryzen 1700 and I had no more problems keeping 60FPS in the above mentioned games (with same settings or better). The FX8350 will definitely hold the 1060 back from it's full potential.
The 8350 should still play most games fine for now and the immediate future, but it's only a matter of time until it just doesn't cut the mustard anymore on AAA games.
Im not sure if I'll be able to notice more than 30 fps anyway. That screen was a fiver at the fete.
ah ok thx
Medusa had better hair days than this case's cable management; I love it!
i like it.
Looks like hell to me
I laughed and shook my head in disbelief... then looked over to my case only to see my cable management isn't not that much better.
that title got me.
the ketchup and mustard! it's horrible! looks like a damn burnt hot dog!
How did you manage to get your cables like that? It's beautiful.
Step 1- cut a hole in the box. Step 2 - put your junk in that box. Step 3 - make her open that box. And that's the way you do it!

I like how the back fan isn’t even spinning. But overall nice build. I cave an i7 7700k with a 1050ti and thinking of switching over to something like this to get better performance for cheaper. Any ideas?
Thats what I did! Big power supply, check! Oem case, check! No money for a better case, check!
To be fair, I just can't justify buying a better case.
Not A bad idea. I was a bit excited to start up and I couldn't see a simple solution.
After upgrading to ryzen I put my old fx 8350, motherboard, and ram with some other parts i had laying around in a old ancient case also. I modded the case with a hand drill to add 2 intake fans on side panel low. The case had a 80mm exhaust fan so I added another 120mm exhaust with my drill on top for much better air flow and it works great
Way back in 2013 when I got my FX8350, I was forced to use the stock cooler for about a week. It was loud. Very loud. Ungodly loud. I'm talking hair dryer loud. And even with headphones during gaming I could always hear it. But it did effectively cool my non-OC'd 8350. The heat-pipe design made it better than any copper slug cooler, but AMD put way too small of a fan on it. If they had designed that cooler to fit a 92mm fan with the same heat-pipe design, we would have had a wraith-ish cooler 5 years ago that would have been "AMD cool n' quiet".
I don't anymore.
In my Votech class, we have two PC's to run our Oculous Rifts, they have FX-8350's with a stock cooler, Strix 970's, and horrible cables. The air coming out the back fan is REALLY warm
nonono, we have two different stations, each with its own Rift. Both with FX 8350s and GTX 970's lol
My stomach hurts...Oh shoot, that was just the burrito from earlier.
ahhh...cuz I said taco burrito.
That moment you realize we are ruled by food corporations; Hear's burrito, automatically associates it with Taco Bell. XD
jk...or am I?
