Overall, I am impressed with the 8350k's gaming performance at 4.8GHZ. It performs basically frame for frame with my overclocked 8700K in most games. I also really like the Cooler Master RGB controller given it's price and it uses standard 4-pin RGB headers.
This build was my first attempt at cable sleeving as I usually go for silent builds with no case windows. Once you get a hang of detaching the molex plugs, sleeving is pretty easy but time consuming. The biggest challenge with sleeving modular power supplies are the numerous pins that combine two wires. This makes it difficult to reseat after adding sleeving and you need a solution for running wires from two terminals to one. My solution was sleeving each individual wires up to a point, and then hiding the transition to two wires in one sleeve with some heat shrink.
The 8350K really is a great CPU. Despite questionable pricing at release, at $135 there is no better bang for your buck for gaming when overclocked. You do need to spend an extra $20 to get a Z370/Z390 board, but it easily outperforms popular non-K i5 CPUs and hangs with my overclocked 8700K in most games. The i3 obviously falls behind in applications where hyperthreading matters, but there's not much incentive to buy up the stack if you're only gaming.
Pretty decent for the price. It is louder than a good air cooler but does a good job cooling. The software is a but sluggish and the lighting controls conflicts with EVGA's lighting control for the graphics card.
Not a fan of this EVGA motherboard. I was not impressed with the BIOS and overclocking was pretty finicky so I stopped at a very comfortable 3.8 GHZ on my 8350k. Has decent feature set but will put my money elsewhere when overclocking.
All DG-7 series cases use the same frame. The more expensive models add tempered glass and a LED/fan controller, but the actual case is the same. So at $40, you get a really nice case but with an acrylic side panel and an oddly designed plastic front intake cover. I can't really recommend this EVGA case at this price point. You can find better for $40-$50 with tempered glass. Case fans were extremely loud.
The Cooler Master fans may not be the brightest and best looking, but this retail package with 3 fans and the RGB controller is an incredible value. I paid $25, but even at $40 this is 5 stars.
The RGB controller connects to your motherboard via USB for software controlled lighting and uses standard 4-pin RGB headers; you can pair the controller with better fans. I highly recommend the Cooler Master RGB controller if you can do without A-RGB.
