Description

This was a fun little build with some extra parts I had laying around and amazon gift cards :) The passive cooler i had on the GPU ended up being too big ... instead of cutting it with a dremel i just decided to return it and put the evga one back on. The 5350 seems to stay pretty cool with the passive cooler combined with the 2 80mm exhaust fans. I really enjoyed working in this case and I will probably use it again for future builds! The ramsinks were added to spruce it up a little for the window since the bare modules are such an eyesore to me.

Overall, i'm pretty impressed with the performance of this computer. I have been playing Overwatch beta all weekend and it does run it on High at around 30-50fps @ 2.4ghz on the processor with a bclk of 112. Also, world of warcraft also runs on high from 30-60fps. Very impressed for a $40 CPU :)

Has it got any 80+ certification?

That's really too bad about the Artic Accelero S1 cooler. Is the GTX 750 semi-passive though? I might had gone with the GTX 950 for that feature!

No the 750 ti isn't :c I already had this card which is why i used it :) 950 would have been awesome!

This is really unique, I love non run-of-the-mill builds like this. +1

Where did you get those cable extenders?

Thank you so much! I think that's what makes it the most fun of all!

Amazon, actually! Just search "24 pin extension/6 pin extension". It's a great way to add a little flare without having to purchase a new unit :)

Wow, the SSD is the most expensive piece of hardware on here! Nice build, that ITX case seems pretty neat.

Thanks :) I could have went with a cheaper ssd and not got all the other bells and whistles and it would have been a super cheap budget build but the OCD in me wont let that happen xD

Very unique!

How do the cable extensions work in such a small case? I know when I did my build I had a huge amount of extra cabling because of the extensions... Is it just short extensions or a short PSU that gives you more space to hide cables?

Thanks, man. The build has been since sold but i remember i had to do some tricky cable management to avoid it looking like crap. It did take some work, the PSU was an average sized one as well. Also, this mobo didn't require a cpu-4 pin cable so that cut down on some cables as well since I only had to use a 24 pin and 6 pin extension.

I think it turned out pretty well!

Thanks! Good info to know.

Really nice looking build mate. I am wondering how are your 80mm case fans performing, I am thinking of the same case with the same fans. How are the fans noise and how did you connect your fans in the system? Thanks in advance.

Thanks :) I actually love those little fans as they run very quiet and exhaust a good amount of air. Each of the fans has a 3-pin connector with a pass-thru and I have the fans connected together sharing 1 3-pin mobo header.

Bad idea mixing two different ram speeds

As noted in the description, this was put together with a lot of extra parts... including the ram. I have them both running at 1600 through the bios with no errors after memtest and prime95. Thanks for your comment.

I do a lot of buying/building and selling computers which leaves a lot of spare parts left over. As far as the cpu goes, that was the best cpu for that socket at the time of the build. The whole build was actually built around the AM1 platform and going around and saying "get a better cpu" on other people's builds is frowned upon. It performed well, and I have long since sold this computer.
