I just finished building a new PC for myself(posting soon) and I am totally addicted to the art of custom building. So I decided to put together a build for my wife. Asked her what color she wanted and just went from there.
I wanted to play around with some AMD over clocking so was a easy choice on the chip. PC will mostly be used for daily surfing, blogging, watching videos, storing and editing photos. Future plans will be some video editing and recording.
I over clocked the AMD Chip to a stable 4.5ghz with a very tiny voltage increase. Didn't want any heat issues, or excessive fan noise.
Case NZXT S340 was a very easy case to build in. The blue looks good, and matches most any computer blue components.
I really dig the Sapphire Vapor-X, matches great even though you can't really see it lol. I have a custom backplate coming for it so will add images later.
The Black/Blue Cable extensions made life easier and look good.
Simple, Inexpensive, Blue and kept me busy building another PC!
Excellent Overclocking Chip. Easy, Stable and Cool 4.5ghz without much trouble. For the build I am using it in, so far its perfect
Bought it for the Blue LED, Pretty quite, Cooling is good. Mounting was a bit strange. Seemed like the Combo of AMD, Case and Mobo didn't work very well with this cooler
Solid Board, not many bells or whistles but has everything you need. Bios is very simple and easy to use. Took the Overclock like a champ
Kingston rocks. No fancy heatsinks, reliable and blue
Needed some storage, had blue in it. Crucial always a safe buy.
Just a solid deal all the way around for storage.
I haven't really tested out the GPU much yet since I doubt my wife wants me to game on her PC but for the price, the look, small over clock seems like a solid deal for an older card. I dig AMD and this gave me a chance to try out some products I would't normally buy.
Cooling so far seems excellent, runs silent, Windows 10 drivers worked with no issue.
Case was excellent to build in, looks great, lots of room. Good choice if on a budget
This is a great buy for a simple rig. Cable extensions help a lot but not needed. The included cables are a bit stiff but the power is good.
There blue, mediocre performance/noise
