Wanted something a little better than my Inspiron laptop for doing design work (CAD). Might also fire up a few games if I get the time. The FX-6300 is great bang for your buck, I'm running mine at 4.2 GHz on the water cooler and this seems stable so far. Love the case, awesome cable management options. This setup crushes Solidworks '14 demands with no problems as of yet. Should have sprung for a larger SSD, 128 GB fills up fast. 16 GB RAM just because. I thought the blue LED fans would be a cool touch, I actually hate them and will replace them with something more subtle when I get the chance.
Found a new in box i5-4690k for $100 on CL, no-brainer upgrade from the FX-6300, obviously had to switch the MOBO as well.
