Scout 2 Update + Build. FX8350 + H100i

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, recently did a little update on my rig at a LAN (because I had the guys around me for tech support)

The original thread were I asked the forum what I should get is here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/15451-updating-my-pc-mobo-gfx-cpu-cpu-cooler-help/

I ended up buying:

-AMD FX 8350 8 core CPU

-ASROCK 990FX Extreme3 Motherboard

-Sapphire Radeon 7950 with Boost

-Corsair H100i CPU Cooler

Also went from 8gig of Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8 to 16gig

I know the picture quality isn't great ($150 camera that my mate bought quickly before his Fiji holiday), but i'll post the pics in order.

Rig before I started:

Mounted the Motherboard then the H100i ghetto style (Cheers Linus for the 'Tech Tip') bad joke

Put the fans in (yes I know they are dusty, didn't have the air compressor with me)

Edit:

The CPU is stock and this is the temp I got with no programs open and the case closed. 27 degress

I also ran the Bioshock benchmarking tool thing: 194 FPS average

Don't know how good/bad this is.

I would love to hear your guys feedback (things I could improve and things you would do differently)

P.s. I'm loving the ghetto rad look.

Not bad but personally i don't like the look of the motherboard.

 

I think it looks okay, guess its a matter of opinion.

Very nice, you may want to replace rings on the SP120 Quiet Editions to red ones. Flipping the PSU may also look better, but other than that it's beautiful!

ASRocks brown colour can be off putting but the price/feature ratio is second to none especially on the cheaper boards.

 

PS. anyone know how to get spell check off U.S. setting?

I'm not familiar with that benchmark, so I can't comment.

 

The temperatures are nice, you should definitely overclock your CPU since the H100i is more than capable of a decent one.

i like the build, loved that 7950, i just hoped that you cleaned everything before you put everything back, just an honest thought....

Haha, don't worry guys! This week I'll take it out to the shed and get the compressor on it!

You appear to have the wrong fans installed on your H100i. Those are the airflow ones not the static pressure one's. Swap those around and this will be great :)

Yep they are inverted, and even so, he is getting great temps :O

The motherboard looks too brown with the flash on, but I'm sure in person it looks dark. Good build overall.

 

Spot on. I have the same board and it looks black with no flash.

It just looks black in the case, only brown with the flash.
