Hey All, This is my first build. Just wanted something affordable for a bit of gaming and multi tasking. My motherboard is not the Krait Edition, it's actually the "MSI 970A G43 Plus" but it doesn't show up on pcpartspicker. Other than that everything else is accurate. I got some decent rebates on stuff and ended up with a free bluray drive because a friend only needed it to install windows and let me have it afterwards. Went with the FX 6300 because of price and over-clockability. Currently have it OC'd to 4400Mhz for daily, but can get it up to 4900Mhz stable at about 55c under full load. Got a good deal on the GTX 950 OC'd version that runs about as good as a 960, Good price/performance ratio and pairs well with the FX 6300. I went with just a 240gb SSD because I don't keep much stored, just what I currently play. If it gets too full i can easily add another HDD. Runs great so far no issues with it. I get almost 200FPS in LOL on max settings, runs Rainbow Six Siege on Ultra with no lag, and it runs The Division on High with no issues at all. I'm very happy with what I got for under $600 with OS. Let me know what you guys think, I'll add more photos later
Awesome CPU for the Price, best performance you can get under $100 and very over-clockable. Stock cooler and thermal is garbage, was hitting 70c before overclocking.
Great cooler, Had a little trouble installing took about 40 lbs of pressure to get both screws threaded thought i was going to destroy the Mobo or CPU but it works great after getting it on, cut my temps in half. Cooler is large barely fits in my case so make sure to measure
Good ram Looks nice
Solid SSD for cheap no issues, 10 second boot times :)
Awesome GPU easy to install, looks good, runs great
Good case, has decent cable management, side window is a bit too small and way too dark, glass is very tinted, had to buy a lighting kit to see anything in there.
Works, has a 3 year warranty $20
Nice looking fan, the fan blade design make the light look like lightning bolts, like the halo rings too, Could be brighter
Great fans, very quiet, very bright
