Description

Not many problems, great build for it's price.

I was able to turboboost/oc my processor to 3.8 ghz and it's working well, I probably will keep the oc going because of the temps that I get with it overclocked to the ones that I get while it's not overclocked

I use this monster for mainly games from steam and origin, Mojang etc. ^ typical

The only problems I really had with this computer was finding the right drivers and the cable management for the case, which was really horrible with a non-modular power supply. I pretty much just stuck all of my left over cables in the bottom middle of the case as you can see in the pictures ;-;

(AMD's auto detect didn't work so I had to use my brain to get the r9 2xx series drivers for my gpu.)

I've really had no trouble with this rig other than some driver problems (only while playing minecraft) the driver would crash and my computer would get a blue screen of death! but It's okay now for some reason, since I've gotten the new 15.7 driver from AMD. but all is well and I really have no trouble at all on any games I've been able to max out every game so far I've played with 90+ frames, and It's great!

by the way, this is my first build.

Part Reviews

CPU

Really good for any medium gaming occasion, able to run any game easily. Great cpu for a budget ;)

Motherboard

Great motherboard, great bios and easy installation minor trouble, only trouble I had with this was installing the RAM, wouldn't latch correctly, and i/o shield installation.

(note - was my first time building.)

Memory

Great memory for it's price, somewhat trouble of installing onto the motherboard, but that might've been motherboard problems, overall great memory!

Storage

Great hdd for it's price, and VERY easy installation.

Video Card

I don't believe you can get better for it's price. Had no trouble installing and it's really fast, I've also never had it go above 64 degrees c.

Very fast and only trouble was the 15.6 driver erroring while playing minecraft.

Case

Good case, cable management was horrendous though, everything else was fine and fit well.+1

Power Supply

Gets the job done, easy installation and powers everything quite fine.

i thought that the title meant that you intended A 500 dollar budget build but you really wanted a titan so you just forgot about the budget and just added a monster graphics card to your build, that seemed pretty interesting to me so thats why im here.

I swear, I will publish a build and post on it just to beat you :P

@OP Pretty Good. In that budget, I would have gone with the highest Kaveri APU, but I need 16 gigs of RAM so...
