Yep I used Patriot Viper 3 low profile.
Certainly not the looks!
Really like the build! Red and black PSU cables are a nice touch. Love AMD 8350 builds. Solid rig. I am a recent convert to Aerocool fans. Some of the best I have ever used. Enjoy!
Excellent Build! Great parts all around!
Epic! Always nice to see some thing "just because "!! Enjoy!
Beautiful build. Love it. I used that Enermax CPU cooler and had no issues, other than it is a beast. Barely fit in the case.
Really nice combo of parts. Agree with the aesthetics. Everything looks great together. I recently used those Aerocool fans for the first time, and they are perhaps the best fans I have used. Two thumbs up!
Nice build out of spare/unused parts. Should call it "Recycled"!
Really nice build. Enjoy!
Keep us posted!
Have to agree. Overall, a nice build, but that case should allow you to place a lot of your cables, in the back of the case and out of sight. I love AMD CPUs, but their stock fans are not the best. Lots of good aftermarket choices.
Beautiful job! Love the green. I may go green on my next build.
Nice job! Clearly defined goal for the build, and you met or exceeded all parameters.
Nice build, especially for the money!
Asus and MSI both make good MoBos. I am partial to Asus. I have used Asus many times without issue. User friendly. Easy BIOS updating.
Mostly good choices. Good RAM, although there are more cost efficient options. Definitly would save up for SSD. Why 2 different HDDs? Eliminates A RAID possibility, or you could have gotten a 3 or 4 TB unit for same price.
Great case! I have used it several times.
Thanks! Looks good.
Thanks for the rant. I agree with the philosophy that bigger is better. 32 GB of RAM is a reasonable amount and 64 is awesome if your MoBo supports it. Too bad that they do not make 44 mag RAM. I guess DDR4 falls in that category. LOL!
You have a nice build! I am amused by all the comment suggesting what you "should have done". You did what you did. It is your build. It is what it is. Do not be deterred by ridiculous negative comments. Enjoy your build.
Last build was the first time I used them. They are now my new favorites.
Great parts list. Nice build!
Please add some photos! There are a lot of AMD CPU followers that would love to see the finish! Consider another 8 GB of RAM.
Awesome amount of RAM. I have used the same Aerocool fans. Very quiet. Nice rig!
if you are still having sag issues, you can bring the GPU power cables down from the upper gromet/opening to help lift it. Great case! I have used the white version.
Nice parts list and nice build. Enjoy!
Sweet! Two thumbs up.
Nice build! If you ever upgrade the RAM may be useful. It may be awhile before everything is DDR4.
It is one of the best MoBos I've ever used! Love it.
Thanks! Looks good!
Both are solid components. I have used both several times. The Asus board is well made and has the easiest BIOS update of any MoBo I've used. AMD makes solid CPUs, easy to OC, very stable. I have used the 8350 on 4 builds, oldest is 3 years old. Never an issue. The Sabertooth has been used on 3 builds. Also no issues with the board.
Great parts list. Better photos would be nice. I've used the Sabertooth and 8350 on several builds. Both are great. Enjoy!
First 32 GB of DDR4 I've seen! Two thumbs up!
When you started the moniter was working? In the moniter menu, are you set up for the input that you are using?
Is windows actually installed, or you never got that far?
Can you put your graphics card in another machine to make sure it is functioning properly?
My concern is something from a hardware standpoint is still not properly installed, or your MoBo has an issue. Does the BIOS post when you power up? I know your not seeing it on moniter but your board has a light letting you know. Any error beeps?
Nice build for the money considering that you include all your peripherals.
Solid AMD build. That case will allow very good cable management, so it should be no problem to reroute some wires out of the way.
Really nice build. Clean and good looking as well as superfunctional.
Nice parts list! Add some photos, please!
Nice build! Enjoy.
Thanks for the info. I used the Sabertooth 990 board from Asus.
I have never used the 8320, but I have used the 8350 in several builds and have never had any issues.
Is the CPU overclocked? If not the VRM should not overheat unless the board has an issue. MSI boards are usually reliable although I prefer Asus MoBos. Nice build overall.
Nice build. Love it!
Nice build. 16 GB of RAM is not overkill. I am not sure why people seem to be concerned about having a super efficient rig. If you have the $ for better equipment, then go for it. I also have converted to full modular PSUs only. As sbkspyder said " Better to have more than to need more." Agree completely.
Parts list is reasonable. Asus M5 boards are good for the money. Modular PSUs and a better case would make any build easier for cable management, and looks.
Actually you did a good job considering the case restrictions. Should be very efficient at rendering. Nice job!
Good job, nice build! Good to see AMD builds.
Really nice build. Great parts list. Great look! Enjoy!
Once you get used to Windows 8, I think you will like it. Boots amazingly fast from SSD. Solid build, very clean!
Agree! Nice build, but Windows 8 boots amazingly fast on SSD. Consider more RAM, depending on your use. Enjoy!!
