[Build Log] BOLT - FX8350 - GTX 680

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone...

 

This is a simple Build Log of a PC I put together for a friend of mine, its still a work in progress being 85% of it completed.

 

The Specs:

 

Processor: AMD FX8350

Motherboard: Asus Saberthoot 990FX R2.0

Graphics Card: MSI GTX 680 2Gb

Ram: Hyperx Predator 1866Mhz 2x4Gb (For Now)

Case: NZXT Switch 810

Cooling: Corsair H100i

Power Supply: Aerocool Templarius Imperator 850W

SSD: Samsung 840

Fans: 5x Cooler Master Sickle Flow 120mm

 

So those are the basics, there will be also be some extensions added, since the PSU cables are all ugly... Plus there will be added 4 more Sickle Flows 2x 120mm and 2x 140mm. Once my friend gets that I'll have to redo most of the Cable Management on the back end, I have to say the switch 810 is an incredible case but its a bit thin on the back side, all the cabling has to be done properly or you won't be closing the side panel.

 

Without further delay here are some Pictures:

 

The Line Up:

 

 

 

I was actually quite suprised at how dark the saberthoot really is you can only notice the Brown parts because of the flash because in normal light you barely notice it.

 

 

 

Here we are after everything was put together and I was installing W7 on it and failing xD, it kept rebooting and starting over and over again, thanks to my stupidity forgot to change the Boot device on Bios sigh, anyway right next to the Bolt its my lovely benchtable.

 

 

I have to say this looks really good in the dark, sadly my digital camera sucks badly so can't really show it properly.

 

 

 

Everything closed up and ready to start Overclocking, I have to say OC on this AMD is somewhat different from what I'm use to with Intel, still after a bit of reading and some tinkering I took it to a 4.8Ghz at 1.49 v kind on the high side will have to read some more and see if I can improve its stability with a lower Voltage, After a quick run of 3DMark11 I was surprised, that the 8350 was actually worse at 4.8ghz then my 3550k at 4.7GHz I was expecting it to at least be on the same level it got 400 points less then the i5, still the 680 compensated the score at stock voltage it beat the 670 at 1228mhz by around 400 points in the graphics score. I'll have to mess around with it more and see what I can get out of it, then I'll post some results.

 

Hope you enjoy it, cheers, Ill keep you guys posted on updates.

Yeah the case is huge, I removed the 2 lower HDD cages for increased airflow, and since there wasn't any need for them the case looks even bigger without them.  The only problem with this case is the small amount of space you have on the back, if someone is going WC with this beast its gonna have to do a almost perfect management of the cables and what not on the back.
