Finally My personal rig is being posted. I built this machine with a thousand dollar budget in mind and to also have enough power to stream and play most games on high settings. Surprisingly its done pretty well with that goal, so far the only game I've had trouble streaming and playing at the same time is BF4. Everything went together smoothly with this build, the only problem I ran into was that the USB fast charge on the motherboard was causing occasional crashes, since uninstalling the software for it I've had no more problems.

All around awesome case. Has tons of cable management and is a very simple and clean looking case

i dont understand how you had a 1000$ budget but ended up with a 750ti and 6300 but at least you can keep that case for a future build

With a $1K budget, any reason why you didn't go for an Intel build?

ARMYofPHARA0HS submitter 4 Builds 1 point 44 months ago

The only reason is because I use a select few companies in my personal builds and I couldn't keep the price under $1K with those parts

upgrade the cpu cooler. i have the hyper 212 evo with my fx6300 at 4.4ghz. 56°c is the highest my cpu will go during a stress test. def worth the money.

Nice build. How quiet are those fans at full RPM?

ARMYofPHARA0HS submitter 4 Builds 1 point 44 months ago

Thanks. They're not quiet but they're not overly loud when at full speed

Why no cooler?

It must be late because the stars are out

Seriously, why is everything a 5-star item?

I dunno, he bought decent parts. Maybe he's got no complaints, aside from the apparent lack of fan headers on the mobo.

ARMYofPHARA0HS submitter 4 Builds 3 points 44 months ago

Because everything worked well and has good quality in my opinion. The only problem was the the lack of fan headers and that was solved with a splitter I had laying around from another customers build
