So what do you do when you get a new job? Blow it on computer parts of course! (Who needs a car?)
So this is the second (kind of) rendition of Puff. I gotta say, I could not be happier with how this has turned out (so far). I love absolutely everything about it. Now let's get into the reasoning behind some parts shall we?
FX-6300: The Very first part ever bought for my PC that has slaved it's way through 3 years of pampering (Abuse). Right now I have it clocked at 4.4 Ghz at 1.304 V and it has never crashed on me, nor does it get very hot.
Hyper 212 EVO: Here is a funny story. so I HAD a AIO cooler from CoolerMaster (ironic name) that had a pump failure on me after about a year. The real kicker is I have been getting better temps from the little bad boy, at a higher overclock, and it's running quieter. 10/10
MSI 970A Krait Edition: What can I say? I'm a sucker for color coordination.
Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB: Love it's low profile heat spreaders, and never had an issue with them.
OCZ Trion 480GB: Had a HD failure and never really used the 1TB space I had, so I decided to go full SSD. I plan on picking up another in the future.
Sapphire RX 470: Now before you all hate me, screaming bottleneck left and right, and how it's overpriced, I got this card for $177 BRAND NEW. I only game on 1080p, so I don't need more than 4GB of VRAM. I have had nothing but good experiences with sapphire as a company, and this card has a premium feel, for a low price. The fact it stomps every game I throw at it, is a plus!
NZXT S340: Absolutely one of the best budget cases on the market. The only real grip I have had with this case, would have to be the limited room, which should be expected from a case of this size. The thumbscrew do tend to annoy me at times, but they are not bad at all.
EVGA P2 650W: Absolutely fantastic. Got one for my father's build, jealously ensued, so I had to pick one up as well.
Case Fans: Run quite, push a good amount of air, and they are cheap.
Overall, I love the build, but I am nowhere NEAR done upgrading it. I plan on going Intel for the future, but that is not in the near future. Needless to say, this build will come back with a Vengeance on it's third rendition.
