"RIGHTEOUS GAMER!" Donation Build! AMD FX-8320 8 Core & R9 270x OC! ALL WC!!!

post #1 of 843
Thread Starter 
I recently had a guessing competition on my Simple Desk build log and OCN user ThatOneNewGuy won, I was talking to him and it wouldn't have been appropriate for me to send him a custom cable and steam credit...... Well because he doesn't really have a righteous gaming rig! His current system is broken and outdated. He like many of my friends is located in Australia where it is expensive to ship anything to and its hard to get good computer parts!

SO, obviously the right thing to do would be to build him a rig! I am covering all costs associated with this build except the shipping which he agreed to cover. I will be building it for him and posting the progress here. As many of you know im not the buy parts and slap them together kind of guy so I will be making this build special for him!

I would consider this a community build, even though I am accepting the responsibility of it I give credit to OCN for providing the atmosphere and community that breeds such opportunities for people. This is not a sponsored build and I am not using any promotional items or gifts from any manufactures.

List of items not yet planned or purchased that are still needed


RAM Donated by OCN User Sgt Bilko AMD Radeon R3 Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
OCN CASE BADGES!!!
PSU Donated by OCN User Terrere A NZXT 700 Watt HALE 82 V2
Monitor
Keyboard Corsair Raptor K50 Gaming Keyboard Donated by OCN user RexTempus
Mouse Razer HEX MOBA Donated by OCN user Exodus1500
Games

Medal of Honor
Mirror's Edge

PCIe x1 Wifi Card

OCN User Sgt Bilko Donated:
Bioshock Infinite
Tomb Raider
Witcher 1 & 2
Battlefield 4
LEGO Movie

Windows 7 Ultimate Key donated by OCN user josyd


Sound Card ASUS XONAR DG PCI Sound Card Donated by OCN User Lefik
Secondary Storage Drive Western Digital 250GB 7200rpm SATA Donated by OCN User Lefik
WebCam
Storage Hard Drive 1TB Drive Donated by OCN user Majentrix
SSD New Samsung EVO 120gb SSD Donated by OCN user mk16


Logitech Surround Speaker system and Premium Headset Donated by OCN user Davey85

Things I have covered:

Case
CPU
Motherboard
GPU(s)
Lighting and cosmetic items
Cables
RAM
Radiators
RES
Pump
Tubing
Fittings
Blocks
Fans

Ok Im thinking I will focus on making the build compact enough to ship at a reasonable price but it will be powerful and future proof! I will concentrate alot on the GPU, I have a HD7870 2GB, R9 270x 4GB, and a GYX 660 2GB. Since this is a small case build and I mite be using a miniATX board I think I will go with the special edition R9 270x OC 4GB since it is small but still packs a major punch!

As Far as the CPU/Mobo Im using a FX-8320 8 Core AM3+ CPU with a GigaByte GA-78LMT-USB3 Rev 5.0 AM3+ Motherboard








The cooling will be a EK Cylinder Res, and a couple 120mm Rads. A D5 pump. And a Swiftech CPU Block and a universal Danger Den Maze5 GPU, with copper on the VRM and VRAM modules. I will also try to squeeze some COLDER QDCs somewhere.....

Ok so update on the cosmetics:

The coloring will be Hot Pink accented with Dark Purple. There will be some black and maybe a little blue as well. I plan to have the exterior hot pink accented with purple and the interior Dark Purple accented with pink. So the blocks and chipset heatsinks/block will be painted pink and the wires will either be black or pink sleeved. redface.gif

Its no biggie really, I do this alot I just dont always make a build log, but considering the geographical separation I think it would be nice for him to be able to see what he is getting. I really wish there was a community build thread where OCN users could come together and help people out. The Freebie thread is a good example of how the online community should be! smile.gif

On Ebay..... A little bit of this, a little bit of that!

Ok I have decided on the Mobo and CPU, I totally forgot I bought a new GigaByte GA-78LMT-USB3 v5.0 AM3+ Motherboard AMD FX-8320 8-Core CPU combo from OCN user iRUSH a week ago! I think I can make the mobo fit in a small case! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif Only $150!
