FX-8350 Build Advice - Page 3

post #21 of 25
So far your on the money for a great system, as far as psu,s don't leave out the seasonics, just as good if not better than corsair. Check out the inwin dragon rider if your ok with a full tower, one of the best cases I have ever owned.

I am fine with a full tower but prefer a case with cleaner lines. That is a nice case and I would like to see it in person. I am gonna look for some builds with that case.

For the CPU I am noob for Overclocking so if I burn a CPU i choose to only spend $200 then $500. The MoBo is nice but only 3 PCI-e 3.0 not all are at 16x speeds the nic is a broadcom that is bad with linux. The case does not support USB 3.0 and from my other case you can see I like a clean case with straight lines and I would prefer one that has the 5.25 bays hidden. I have heard that ATI is better for higher then 1080p. The monitor is smaller that alone is not a big turn off but i prefer one that does better then 1920x1080.

If there is a Microcenter near your house, check it out. The one here in Chicago has a ton of water cooling gear. I really enjoy going there. Otherwise Frozen CPU is the way to go. I also buy all my fans at Frozen CPU because they carry Scythe.

Also, check out the EK kits, or the Swift Tech H220. Mocrocenter keeps selling out of them here, and the ones online are always marked up. The correct retail price is $140 for an all-in-one that can be opened up and added to. I will buy the first one I can find that is not marked up. The EK kits cost more., but I believe that you can get on with a triple rad (360mm) for $205 on Amazon or Frozen CPU. That is a deal. The crazy expense in water cooling is the fittings. They cost a fortune.
