Description

(This is an update of the Red Panda 1.0)

I upgraded the CPU cooler on this PC since I wanted to see what kind of temps I could get the CPU it down to, but I hadn’t taken into consideration that you must configure the cooler before you are good to go XD So all the bench marks included are all with the fan and pump at stock speeds. In other words, the fan and pump wouldn’t ramp up when the CPU gets hot.

I will be making another update video with the cooler configurated AND overclocking on my 6800k (before I send it back to get a Kraken x62 XD)

Even if no one really sees this or cares its really here for me so I can look back in the future at everything!

Part Reviews

CPU

For gaming I would rate this CPU a 4/5. This is solely due to it being a 6 core processor and not a quad core, and clocked higher. But as just a processor for everything, a solid 5/5. It hasnt let me down once and I've even overclocked it a small amount (Can't much more due to CPU cooler) I look to overclock this CPU a lot in the future :).

Motherboard

I don't know too much about motherboards but I really like the on and off switch included to test if it will post before putting it into the PC! The RGB support is also cool (even though I don't use it) And I also like how the colour matches my theme :). One thing I do know about is the overclocking support on this motherboards BIOS is INSANE. Theres so much you can do with this board overclocking wise. It even has 2 modes, advanced and simple, depending on your knowledge... I highly recommend this PC to anyone trying to beat overclocking world records, or to someone who just wants a good motherboard for everything! :D

Storage

Stores stuff, is okay, nothing more to say! :)

Case

Good case for wire management, even an idiot like me can make a neat build with this thing! Highly recommend.

Power Supply

Great for lower standing builds! Would maybe go up to 700 just to future proof but its lasted me long enough :)

I'm actually getting a whole new computer very soon! This will stay at my parents house and just be there if I'm home and need a computer to work on. My new build will be made public soon, once I get to finalise it! :)

I will be carrying over the CPU and the motherboard though, since I find those pieces of the build pretty modern!

Nice build. But something caught my eye, your using a motherboard with SLI support and your only using one GPU. Id suggest another R9 280 for crossfire to give you that FPS boost. ↑ from me. ive left a link to one on CEX to help you: https://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=SGRATIR92803GB

The reason for this is I bought a Motherboard that I would be able to use in my next PC when my original PCs motherboard died :( I will be (hopfully!) getting duel 1080tis in my next computer! :)
