Description

Built it about a month and a half ago, never posted anything, but better late than never. Used for gaming. Pretty much only gaming with some websurfing here and there. Parts work great for me and I got good deals on them. Plus I had a few friends who bought some parts for me cause they're the best friends ever. My little phantomjester is my first build and she can handle anything I throw at her at max settings. I haven't done any benchmark testing, but if I ever get around to it, I'll update it.

I know my cable management is poo. I started doing it and then was just like, "Meh. I could be playing right now." So... I started playing and forgot about cable management completely. :) I'll eventually buy braided cables though maybe more red LEDs.

Ignore the random shoe rack :D

Damn you have some great friends. My friends would have probably bought me some game for the Xbone or Peastantstation. I'd really like another Ssd or gpu Lool

I had spent about 6 months without gaming cause my ASUS gaming laptop took a poo. My friends were like, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!" So they pitched in. And I definitely want an SSD next! My boot time is about 9 seconds with my HDD but I'm sure it'll cut in half with a SSD!

What great friends you have :D Also 9 seconds with a HDD is impressive! My boots with the MX100 is around 6-7seconds

Hey, great job on the build! Yeah, cable management could use some work, but you did alright. Can't wait to see spiffy cables on this thing. Of course, if you can't tell, I love lights. NZXT Hue would help light this rig up! Have you benchmarked yet? Curious how you scored with your setup.

Definitely going to look into it when I have the money for it. Nifty lights and easy to manage cables are a thing I look forward to!

Nice build! Great selection on parts, and I've seen worse cable management haha. If you're looking for LED's the NZXT Hue seems like it's the way to go. I am actually in the process of building my first computer right now, I just have to finish buying the parts. In fact I've already bought the AMD FX-8350 and the Corsair H60. Does the H60 keep your system cool, and do you do any overclocking?

H60 definitely keeps my system cool. You can get a similar cooling from air coolers if you don't overclock, though. I haven't had the need to OC my CPU, so I haven't really seen my H60 work. I keep it's settings on quiet and my CPU stays cool regardless :)

Thanks! And beautiful! Not a flaw to be found yet. Runs everything smoothly on max settings!

Oh, and your build is amazing. I love the red, my friend. ;)

Nice build. I like it. Your cable management could use a bit more work, but not much. I am not hung up on bench marking either.

My question for you is do you really use all those 8 cores. You should have done what I did and done some thinking and realized at this point in time you won't ever use 8 cores in a game and gotten a 6350 like I got with at 100mhz lower and saved some money and possibly gotten a better GPU or cooler. Good build though.

Building for the future! I plan on adding more GPU's and whatnot. I like things to last for years and be to be easily upgraded. Maybe they'll make games for 8-core CPU's in the near future. And guess what? I'll be ready. >:)

They don't even have games that use 6 cores yet to the best of my knowledge >:)

I know it also uses Mantle which is awesome.

Great build! As folks have said, your cable management's pretty good. I did the same thing once I got close to finished. Glad to know I'm not the only one who couldn't wait!

I'm considering building in this case next time. How was it to work in? Also if you've made any upgrades since posting.

Wow, sorry for the late reply!

Gaming waits for no one!

And it was surprisingly roomy considering it's a mid tower and I have a fairly large GPU thrown in there. And I have made some minor additions. I added a 256GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD and another 1TB Seagate HDD. Needed space. And the speed for my DA: Inquisition addiction. The map loading takes a stupid amount of time on an HDD and the SSD solved that issue great!

I also plan to add a second monitor, second GPU and another 8GB of RAM. I will probably get a bigger case when I buy my next GPU though. Just for better airflow.

I have that same mouse but I got it for $20 cheaper. I dont even utilize it fully and it is still probably the best gaming mouse out there. If only it glowed a little more and was wireless.

How does the case light up??And why did u buy case fans,becoz it already have it in the case.

  • 60 months ago

The fans have LED lights on them, so it lights it up. And the case did have a fan come with it, but it only came with one, so I needed to buy the rest.

So about the cooling in the case, I am using the same case and same CPU cooler and I am not sure about the placement of my fans, I know the radiator on the cooler needs to go on the rear but is there also room for two 120mm fans at the top of the case without being obstructed by the radiator. Also what configuration for the fans do you suggest?

For this build, no, I could've gone with air cooling and gotten better cooling for the price. However, I want to eventually get a full size tower and go all out with things. Eventually. Might as well start with small steps, right? :)

necessary not always but desired. amds like to run warm and use alot of power so if you have an i3-i5-i7 thats why you do have to worry lol so on amd i would always get a better cooler just my opinion good build .....ps i water cooled mines too hahahhaa the POWER the POWER really makes you feel cool...get it lol
