I use this PC primarily for Gaming. It can run most 'triple a' games at medium to high settings at around 50-60 FPS. When it comes to less graphically intense games like Minecraft it can run them at max settings with 100-120 FPS. I also use this for productivity and running MS Office is very fast especially as it is saved to the SSD.
I would recommend that anyone who is purchasing an AMD FX-6300 buys an aftermarket cooler. This is because the Stock CPU Cooler is very noisy and it doesn't keep the CPU particularly cool. I would recommend the Cryorig H7 (around £25 on EBuyer). Many people see the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO as the best budget cooler, this is probably true. The reason I haven't included this cooler is because it won't fit in this case.
For my fans I went with the Corsair SP120 fans. These are placed at the front of the case where airflow,is restricted by the drive bays so Static Pressure optimised fans really help.
Here's a Novabench I did on the system: https://novabench.com/view/990381
Thanks for reading, if you have any questions feel free to comment and ask me.
Reasonable budget CPU. Gets the job done in most areas. Poor stock fan included with the one which I bought however I do believe that AMD have started shipping their CPUs with their new WRAITH cooler which is apparently decent.
Very quiet/cheap cooler with a nice aesthetic! Comes with mounting for both AMD and Intel.
Good motherboard for AM3+ socket CPUs. Don't particularly like how it looks however.
Good middle of the road RAM.
A great option especially paired with a hard drive for storing things that you don't need to access quickly.
ASUS' 950 is a good option if you need a budget GPU. It handles almost every game with ease. Would be better if it included a backplate however I doubt this would happen in such a cheap GPU.
As this was my first build I thought that the case didn't matter so much as it was just for keeping your components in one place. However, I missed the point of building a PC. To make it aesthetically pleasing. This case has so little room for cable management at the back that you have to stuff cables here and everywhere. The hole for the CPU power cable is not big enough to fit a standard Cosair power cable through so I have to route my cable over the top of my RAM and Cooler. It's black feet also leave marks when you move it around on a white desk (these can be removed it's just a pain)
This is a good power supply that can handle my needs currently and even gives enough wattage for an upgrade in the future.
Wireless Network Adapter
Does the job fine. I would recommend using a wired connection of some sort however.
Great looking fans with options for all colours of setups.
