Bughunting with my new FX-6350

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So this last weekend I replaced a crapstastic Intel mobo that died with a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 and a FX-6350 processor. While I wait for the correct plexiglass part for the Raystorm waterblock, I am (gasp!) using the stock cooler. Note that the sides of my case are also off right now.

Tonight I took a break from tweaking to play a little SWTOR. A bug started flying around me, but before I could catch it and put it outside where bugs belong, I heard a funny noise from the CPU fan. After a very short time spent debugging, I determined that it had flown into the fan.

Yup.

After prying the fan off, and picking up a couple legs that fell out, I found this.



And here is the big guy after plucking it out.

Not bad. A couple of times I have wished I had spent a little more and went for the 8250. Or stuck with my original plan and gone with a i5-3750k.

But once I have the water cooling loop up I will probably be happier with it.

I've usually seen bugs get killed by LED fans (pretty lights + spinning death = dead bugs). I actually saw a guy where the bug dive bombed his CPU fan, and then fell onto the back of his video card, and shorted something out.

congrats on the new build smile.gif.
