I hear the APUs are a bit tricky to oc ad far as the higher clock rates go

I won't be settleing for less, i know it sounds bad, but i will hit 5.0ghz, even if i fry my chip.. (Aka 2.0 Volts) Just kidding, but you get my point.

Since you already have the Radeon GFX, you could probably go with a microATX board to save some money, and a 6300 then screw the whole case, because you're going to me making a ton of heat on that north bridge and whatnot. Then, with the money you have left just make a custom water loop for the cpu so you can keep it from melting itself.

Heck, just mount the board to your wall.

Maybe he doesn't want to make custom loops & mount the board to a wall?

I was in the same scenario as the you (OP) -- I was on a bit of a budget.. I went for a FX-4130 & eventually settled on an FX-8320E ($125 from NewEgg).. FX-6300, FX-8320 would have my votes too.

I have an R9 270, R9 280X & R9 290 in my possession.. I actually really like my R9 270 that you have, it runs cool & does pretty damn well. Stay away with APU's -- you already have an adapter.

Whether you make a custom look it not to overclock to a good overclock which is what he said he wanted. You need a good motherboard Oman and simple

Didn't say he had to? I was just saying if he was worried about temperature issues he could do that. Plus wall mounted systems look pretty neat, provided they are done right.

Again, temperatures. Air cooling can be effective, but it can also be super loud.

A NH-D14 or D15 is going to be quieter than just about any AIO setup.

I'm new to water cooling, i got my first one (H60) Saturday, and i love it to death.
I have a decent case i guess, had a hard time adding the radiator, and i already have a micro motherboard, but i don't think i'll get one, because i want to crossfire in the future.
Mounting it to the wall?
Never thought of that, and thats amazing. I might, might, might try it, but i also like to bring my PC to friends houses.

Right now i think i might do this.

Get the FX-6300 OR the FX-8320E
And a AM3+ 2 Pci-E motherboards.

My goal is to get one of these chips at 5.0 GHZ, anqd get a MAXIMUM of 70 Celcius during gaming.

Also, do you think my H60 will do good? it's a decent cooler i heard, only reason why i got it because it was on sale for $35, and couldn't beat the offer.
Also, i have 2 tubes of Artic 5 silver thermal paste to help.

The H60 is not going to be able to dissipate enough heat to get you to 5GHz stable.

1000x this, I had to put mine in ice water in order to get mine to 5GHz
