Description

This build spiralled out of control very quickly (you can thank the bearded fellow in the photos for that, he's good at egging me on to get bigger and better parts)

It was supposed to be a straight swap from my old i5 build but then we couldn't find the screws for my h60 which lead to looking for an Am4 compatible cooler which got to thinking about looping it and then if it's being looped why not go all out and get a 1600x instead of a 1600? If we're going all out why not 16gb instead of 8?

You get the idea...

I've Included my Firestrike scores but if anybody wants anything specific benching/testing let me know!

Part Reviews

CPU

This seems to be a Golden chip. Got it running at 4.1ghz with no problems and only a slight increase on the voltage.

Cinebench got the following results:

Regular Score: 1370 Single Core: 168

Memory

Running at 3200mhz no problem with the latest BIOS for the Mobo. Looks pretty too!

Video Card

Great card from Sapphire which will easily tide me over until VEGA comes along

Case

Great looking case (as you can hopefully see) but my lord was it time consuming to build (As you can probably see from my kitchen being turned into a workshop)

Headphones

Great Headphones, light and comfy. Sound quality is superb

Really nice build. How is the motherboard? Was looking at getting it for a r5 1600 + RX480 build. Edit: They recently added the motherboard to the part list, you can choose it like normal now. (:

Thanks! I've edited the build now. Also it's beautiful and runs without a problem. One thing I didn't know is it has white LED's in the underside which shine out to the sides adding even more frost to this cool thing :D

None whatsoever, powered it on, downloaded the latest bios and set xmp to 3200

I read a reply that said there is an annoying red led on the mobo. Have you noticed/been bothered by it at all?

See photo 8/13 if you want to see for yourself. Yes I've noticed it and it bugs me slightly but i'll probably replace it/paint over it with white myself.

Great build mate. Quick question: how did you do the BIOS upgrade? Through the provided MSI software? or onboard USB BIOS port? Thanks.

  • 32 months ago

Msi software, you can get the BIOS from the msi website :)

Very nice black and white what would you rate the case and gpu you picked

  • 32 months ago
  • 1 point

GPU is easily a 10/10 for 1080p gaming and easily handles 1440p on high settings (currently playing Farcry 4 at 1440p high settings between 55-80fps)

Case is gorgeous and certainly a different take on the metal box that most others have.

Great build, but is the audio quality on this budget motherboard good enough or should i get a x370 mb?

I'm using a fairly decent pair of headphones (Audio technica m40x's) and the quality is fine :)

Great monitor that should only go down in price, I'd say get it if there's a good deal off it.
