Description

Gaming and reddit.

Planetside 2 GTA V iRacing

Runs flawlessly.

Picture shows GTX 550ti which is what I was running until I replaced it with a GTX 770 last week.

Part Reviews

CPU

Probably the best cpu you can get for the money as far as gaming is concerned.

CPU Cooler

Keeps my CPU chilly and I like the corsair link. But it's thick, and the hoses are ugly.

Motherboard

It does the job. No USB 3.0 headers though. I basically blindly grabbed it off the shelf at frys because I was so fed up with my previous MOBO.

Memory

It's RAM. Does RAM stuff. There's probably too much of it. Only complaint is the sky scraper sized heat sinks.

Storage

No complaints. I bought this SSD over 2 years ago and it was a great deal then to run in conjunction with an HDD. Next build will be pure SSD.

Video Card

Probably the highlight of my build. Like the fx6300 it's probably the best price:performance you can get. Especially if you find one used.

Case

Great looking case. Has all the bare necessities and the drive bays are very nice.

Complaints: no grommets for the cable routing cut outs No way to use a 240mm radiator

Power Supply

This powers my PC and hasn't exploded. So far so good

Would you mind giving away that 550ti? Oh and awesome build by the way, I'm giving it my up vote!

It's not mine to give away. Was borrowing it from a friend because I thought my 7770 took a ****.

Thanks though

No problem! And lol I wasn't actually gonna take it, that would be a bit bad on my part, trying to freeload off of others.

Hi, we have the same PSU and case, does your Antec making a little noise? I'm changing it for this reason.

A 240mm cooler can be used in a 300R. I have a H100i GTX in said case working fine.

Why go for the H80i? It's really not a good cooler at all for the money you're spending on it. Other than that, good build.
