Great build. I’d definitely invest in some white braided cables for the motherboard and gpu to really tie together this build. You can get them from Corsair on amazon if you’re interested.

Ended up boosting my boosting my score from 7342 to 7604. GPU went from 7285 to 7485 (I tweaked the overclock just a bit more), but what's crazier is my CPU went from 7684 to 8553! It was the same overclock, just put power settings to ultimate performance and put cpu ratio to fixed. I also forced 64 bit for 3Dmark, this actually helped the cpu by 500, didn't know it was so significant to force it to 64 bit when opening it up in steam. Thanks again.

Okay I see, it looks like your graphics card score makes up for the difference in the processors, but I do think my score is low given the overclock, particularly the processor. I only found one other 1070ti score higher but they have a higher memory clock speed.

I'm thinking now it may have been some power options that I didn't update when I reinstalled windows after the motherboard change. I have recently changed the power settings, but didn't do a new benchmark. I think the clock speed may have fluctuated during the test, but I need to confirm this. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Please tell the cpu and gpu scores

This actually is an overclocked score. 5ghz on the processor and the card is running around 2ghz, what is your score? Maybe things aren’t running so well and I need to look into it

I'm confused by the fan set up. I see you mention wanting to appreciate the rbg fans, but it looks like the case you got shows off the fans even when they are in intake position at the front. I think its safe to assume that your radiator is not cooling the cpu nearly as well as it could. I imagine you could significantly lower your cpu temps by changing to front intake and rear exhaust. Your radiator would be getting fresh cool air from outside the case and your rear and top fans would be helping expel heat from the gpu and motherboard. Right now, your radiator is being cooled by hot air. Also, you would be able to see the rpg fans from the front of the case just as the case was designed to do.

I see that all of your fans are positioned for intake. This means you are not exhausting any hot air out of the case, you are just bringing in slightly cooler air. Though your cpu cooler may appreciate the intake air, your gpu temps may be a little high. I would try positioning your top fans and back fan in exhaust and see how that effects your temperatures. I'd also consider putting your cpu radiator as a front intake fan. You should still be able to fit an additional intake fan in the front. Just something to explore if you find your gpu heating up a lot.

Great looking build. I'd consider switching the top fans to exhaust instead of intake and see if that improves the cooling.

To be honest, it was a bit of an impulse buy. I saw it at Best Buy and I had been wanting something fully modular for some time. 650 would probably be fine for this build.

I believe there was something wrong with the sound on this particular motherboard. It was way to quiet. The sound card sounded significantly better, not only in volume, but in the overall precision of each sound within a game.

I honestly have no idea. You might want to wait until there are more benchmarks comparing 8 core to 4 core on directx 12. I'd be surprised if the 8350 can outperform the 4690k, but if the utilization is a lot different than perhaps it can.

"Great bins of melange lay all around in a gigantic room cut from native rock and illuminated by glowglobes of an ancient design with arabesques of metal scrollwork upon them. The spice had glowed radiant blue in the dim silver light. And the smell – bitter cinnamon, unmistakable."

http://pcpartpicker.com/b/DyZ8TW check this out, kraken 61x, he's got the radiator on top of the case

No it fits in the case, but it won't fit outside the case. The 530 has this little spot on top where you can put a radiator and then cover it with the case's mesh lid. It's a great feature of the case, but I couldn't get the H100i to be on top, only the two 120 mm fans that come with the radiator. It's a little hard to describe. I would suggest looking into the Kraken x61, but the h100i will work with this case, you just have limited options.

So far all I've heard is that they improve boot times and help programs load faster, but do not impact game performance. With that in mind, I can't bring myself to invest. Maybe you could convince me otherwise

The pictures are deceiving, all those cables are in the back, so they are not blocking the front fan at all. I could work on the sata cables coming out the motherboard. What else do you suggest?

For gaming, 16 gbs of RAM is not entirely necessary. It is typically better to spend more on the GPU. But hey, more RAM doesn't hurt. I would recommend buying a CPU cooler. Those stock coolers can cause the CPU to hit top temps with minimal load. Check out the Hyper 212 EVO. More cable management would help temps as well. The back looks nice and clean, but the front, where it matters most, looks a little rough. Other than that, great first build. Overclocking the 8320 is easy, but don't do it until you get a cpu cooler.

No problems, a little tight though, I can't fit a fan between the heat sink and the wall of the tower

This is very similar to my build but I have been using the GTX 660. I just ordered the 770. I want to overclock the CPU to at least 4.0, but I do not have any understanding of overclocking. Could you point me in the direction of some good guides for beginners? I'd really appreciate it. I have the same MOBO, CPU, CPU Cooler and soon (2 days!) the same GPU as you.

Decided to take your advice as well as some other peoples and update my graphics card to the ASUS GTX 770. I came upon some money and decided to invest. Should arrive in a few days.

Crysis 3 doesn't have ultra settings, it just goes up to very high. When on very high (which are the highest settings possible) in 1080p the fps range from 50 to 70, a few times they drop to 46, but that is the lowest and it is very rare. I should mention that the AA settings are on low, which plays a big role I imagine. I actually choose not to run the game in very high settings completely. I use geforce experience to customize the graphics and the game runs in 120 fps, which occasionally drops, but never lower that 70. Some graphic settings are very high some are lower, like shadows is at low. I am very pleased with how the graphic card handles crysis 3. I may be disappointed when more graphically demanding games come out.
