Project Icarus (FX 8350)

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
Project Icarus


This is my new build, the name stems from the game Mirror's Edge, You would get the reference if you played it. It will be used for just about everything but mostly gaming.

(Pictures posted soon)

CPU:
AMD FX-8350
($20 off on NCIX)

Motherboard:
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z
(Christmas Gift)

RAM:
Mushkin Redline Ridgeback 1866 2x8GB
(NCIX)

GPU:
EVGA GTX 680 FTW LE
($80 off on NCIX)

Case:
Corsair 600T Special Edition White
(Birthday Gift)

Cooler:
Corsair H100i
(Birthday Gift)

PSU:
AX1200
(Christmas Gift)
I know it is way overkill, even once I add more drives and a second 680 it will still be overkill, but, oh well.

HDD:
WD RE4 1TB (7200 RPM)
(On Sale at Local Computer Store)

OS:
Windows 8
(NCIX)

The last parts will be here soon, and I will have the pictures then. Upgardes are planned after too.
Pictures are just a few posts down

It's a pretty nice spec'd out build. Can't wait to see it all together. Make sure to keep up us updated.

I understand the mythology reference. I just got the idea from the game because the game actually uses the term "Project Icarus" so I used it for my build.

Here are some photos, still waiting on the CPU, RAM, and OS to arrive but in the mean time here is what I have so far. Excuse the photo quality, the final pictures will be better.










Noticed this after, just to point out, the loose cables at the top are for the H100i, so they will get tidied up, just a minor thing...

All PCI-e 3.0 works on 2.0, just at half bandwidth. This means a drop of like 3 or 4 fps at most in game. You are right though AMD does only have 2.0, but like I said 680s will still work.

No problem. Edit: a side note, in most cases you will need to update the bios of a 2.0 motherboard for 3.0 to work correctly.


So it turns out the shipping was a little delayed, so the last bits may be here this weekend.
