I would switch that mobo with this one-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131873
If you want to have a look at what the FX 6300 can do at 4.8Ghz have a look at this - http://www.overclock.net/t/1421579/fx-6300-vs-core-i5-benches

I have this mobo and is quite impressive. Look in my sig so you can have a look. thumb.gif

That 990FX would be my choice but the other one is a little cheaper so I suggested it instead. But yeah, I'd rather have the 990FX.

Thought that asus mobo was 6+2+2 phase.

No that's the Evo that's 6+2. Just looked that one up and it's 4+1. So you'd have to spring for the 970 Evo.

You sould not use that OCZ ModXStream

Unless you want the magic blue smoke

Build Quality

Externally the OCZ 700W ModXStream Pro is a fairly subdued semi-modular design that looks good. The unit has a nice finish, well sleeved cables, good quality modular cables, and a large overhead fan. However, once we open the unit we find that OCZ 700W ModXStream Pro looks very much like a cheap group regulated unit. This is further compounded by the fact that the unit has some questionable component selections in the mystery "Rec" capacitors. Good capacitors only add slightly to the total cost of a unit so why even something along the lines of Samxon or at the very least Teapo was excluded from this build is bewildering. Further, the unit only features a 3 year warranty and with questionable capacitors this is hardly reassuring. Also related here is the unit’s "documentation." The documentation that came with the unit is simply a waste of time. This fact is punctuated by the power distribution table at the back of the manual was never actually finished by whomever was annotating it. The only upside to all of this is most of the information about the unit is printed on the packaging, but still sans a correct power distribution table as these are genuinely useful. They are especially useful when units do not follow the ATX12v specification or EPS specification for 12v power distribution such as this unit.

Looking good, but I suggest getting a better motherboard. Not that you have many options with am3+, but get the best board you can afford. I got a MSI 790A G43, and it is absolute caca. Can't oc past 4.3.
I'm actually gonna get rid of the entire build as, I am highly dissapointed at the 8320 performance. I'm not trying to discourage you from buying this cpu, but It could end up costing more, since you require a solid board for overclocking, it requires a beefy cooler, a hyper 212 evo that works great on a 3570k, does poorly with this cpu. So do some research if you plan on doing anything more than gaming.
