Don't listen to the haters, bro. This build is really cool because it has an 8350. +1

Just for clarification : you built a custom hardline cooling for an FX-8350?

Synchro 1 Build 5 points 8 days ago

To be fair, it's got a crazy TDP at stock speeds.

Plus I've seen someone hardline a Pentium (might have been a Celeron)

If they have fun with it, I mean why not?

i really wanted some hardliner but i was on a budget and mind this was almost 2 years ago so it was higher end then it is today also the TDP is good at stock speeds like said by synchro

I mean, it's still really capable. Sure, for the price you can purchase a Ryzen, but only four cores. Water cooling an 8350 can let you achieve some pretty insane things, too, like a potential 5Ghz from a base 4.

Yes, this CPU is obsolete, however it is still an 8-core 120 dollar cpu (when it isn't on sale-usually is)

Another thing to note is that this uses DDR3 ram which comes way cheaper than DDR4.

If he were to purchase a Ryzen, it would be the 3 or maybe the 5, which is considered the "low end" of the spectrum. He maybe just wanted something higher end, despite its age. He probably just wanted to experiment with custom loops on something with better overclocking capabilities.

Looks good, reminds me of a wall mount build, which is something i really want someday.

Also, Ryzen 2 is coming out soon, hint hint.
