So I started this project like a year ago. I've been using an AMD processor for some time now, I really got sick of Intel using those high prices, I was a really huge Intel fanatic, And I used Intel processors my whole life, never used AMD, I even remember when I was a kid, we argued which one is the better, Intel or AMD. Oh those were the times.. And Ive had Intel's Pentium 3,4 and C2D (Core 2 Duo) and Core 2 Quad, And latest Intel I had was i3, and after that i switched to AMD. Anyway, I saw this processor, AMD FX 6300, Price was really low, it think it was something around 90-100€ back then, (€uros because I live in Finland) Aaaand that's how i started with AMD, I've been really happy about it too.. Overclocking possibilities are just awesome.. just epic!
So this is my RIG.
Case: Phanteks P400S Tempered Glass Edition (I modifed it a littlebit.) EDIT: This has been changed to Fractal Desing Meshify C.
PSU: Corsair 500W Builder Series EDIT: Changed to Be quiet Pure Power 600W
Motherboard: MSI 970A Krait Edition (I typed it wrong earlier, i typed Kraken LOL )
Processor: AMD FX 8300 3.3GHz @ OC 4.2GHz Stable AF! lol (OVERCLOCK is now 4.4GHz! )
It stays pretty well stable at 4.2GHz, sure there was some changes to be made in voltages etc, but it is very stable. I have air cooling so this is the absolute maxium I dare to overclock without liquid cooling.
Processor Cooler: Raijintek Leto. Changed to ID COOLING AIO 240 liquid cooler.
Memory: Kingston HyperX Limited Edition 1333MHz (2x4GB) & Kingston HyperX 1333MHz Fury (2x4GB) Overclocked to 1866MHz
Graphics: Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 8GB
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1Tb 7200 rpm & PNY 240GB SSD
For displays/monitors I use Philips 278E8QJAB curved 27" monitor and 65" Philips ambilight 4K TV. Both FullHD and 4K resolutions work out pretty well. Both are used gaming With High or Max settings tho I dont like to use, motion blur, bloom, film grain or any of those kind of effects. I use only max 2 or 4x af, or aa And never go higher than that. With both I can get +50fps and almost never goes below that. With FullHD it doesnt go below 60 fps.
OH! And the HEAT, So with FullHD, the temperature is about 40 degrees celsius when gaming. Temperature is measured from the heatsink of the processor cooler. At 4K it's around 50 celsius. I think it's overall pretty good. Idle temperatures are around 26-34 celsius.
Any questions and comments are welcome!
