      I liked the previous setup. It was pretty intense but it was at least uniform. The new setup is a bit sloppy!

        ALERT -> Here is an updated pic of my system. Changes include: A Ryzen 5 1600, an MSI B350m motherboard, my first mini ATX , & Patriot Viper Elite memory w/ snazzy red cooler things. The R9 FURY also feels like a new card based on fps improvement resulting from upgraded processor. Pic below.

          Done messing with this. So this is considered finished. The monoblock sucks, will wait for a fix or swap to heatkiller cpu and vrm combo in December.

            Need a picture of Jim Carry from Ace Ventura 2 on there.

              Update: I have decided the parts from the old build are simply too good to leave sitting on the shelf. I have a near MINT original Alienware (Nearly SOLID METAL) Chieftec tower. (Has a few minor scratches that I can easily fix with touch-up paint.) I am going to build an 8 core sleeper system from an ORIGINAL Alienware case, complete with the Arctic cooler & ballistic memory and a GTX950 card. Will have to buy a cheap AM3+ mb first, and it won't happen immediately, but I will post the results upon completion.

              P.S. Eventually, when I buy a new video card (not anytime soon) I will put the Fury in this Alienware sleeper giant.

                Looks great man but I liked the pastel colours better, you inspired my next build tbh - 2 loops white and blue. I toyed with 1 transparent and one solid, but imho it doesn't look good.

                  Yea in person the pastel didn't look as good to me. The black is actually not pastel black it's semi transparent black. I liked the black better than white but the black clashed with the pastel blue so it became dark blue instead.

                    NYC I don’t like this build. Please spend the next 10 hours changing it.

                    /demo.

                      Update: All previous update plans for the Alienware case have been canceled. After examining the Chieftec, I decided it was simply too heavy for what I wanted in a secondary system. (Also why the Kandalf is now in storage.)

                      I have therefore ordered a Do it yourself Q-Bert case on sale for 40 bucks. I also ordered an ASUS mini ATX motherboard (My second mini-Atx build ) Many of the components you see in the first picture, the Arctic cooler, the 8 core processor, the Ballistic memory will go into the Q-Bert. Also going with an amplified GTX 760 that I have, rather than the gtx 950. Down the road, any update of the 760 to a 1060 or 1070 will result in quite the BATTLE BOX. Pics will be posted at some point after completion.

                        Ha, I think his build is fantastic, I just liked the previous colours better.

                        Love you KAC

                          The Q-Bert has arrived (Love it! What a deal!) and the HIGHEST QUALITY spare parts are ready for reassembly. Just waiting on the ASUS motherboard.




                          *Important note -> I've recently learned that Carl ASRock Weathers removed support for AM3+ Vishera cpus from the 970 Extreme 3 motherboard support list after users had "issues". Might explain why the board died and also why I had zapping & other weird things go on for some time. Maybe the storm fried an already messed up board. Glad I threw it away after seeing this ->

                                lol. I got my FX in 2014. Mainboard/CPU/RAM in specs for $208 shipped back then.

                                I'd be well over $650 for the 2017 equivalent now. Its ridiculous.

                                  The best AMD FX would have been the equivalent of an i3 back then.

                                    When this project is completed, the Q-Bert behemoth will still be able to play BF1 at high settings w/ ULTRA textures. The FX8530 is no slouch, throw in a 1070 & it can produce an in game experience similar to any Ryzen or i7 right now. (Documented)

                                    That said, I am very excited about getting the ole Zotac gtx760 fired up. This is a card I bought new, used for about four months before unexpectedly getting a 970 as a gift, and it has been in storage in near mint condition ever since. (over two years) It will be very satisfying to install modern drivers and see what it can do... though I already know it can do quite a bit from videos shown on youtube.

                                    Asus motherboard should arrive Monday. Stay tuned...

                                          GTX 760 was garbage then and it is garbage now.

                                            Yes, just as the FX8530, which outperforms and outbenches many i5s and i7s, is equivalent to an i3. Indeed...

                                              I don't think i'd be running most games in 1440 on my 8350 if it was equivalent to an i3....

                                                        It's been great. I don't use it in the traditional sense. I straddle it between the armrests of my chair. It doesn't sit on top of my legs. My elbows also sit on the armrests so that my hands are level with the keyboard and mouse. It's very comfortable this way. I can game for hours and hours without any arm fatigue.

                                                          The best AMD FX would have been the equivalent of an i3 back then.
                                                          Actually its the equivalent of the i7 2600K.

It's fine for just about anything other than first person. First person games is when I start feeling the lag and it makes me dizzy lol.

                                                                              I also was completely successful in my first experience working with thermal paste. I usually just use the paste included with stock or aftermarket coolers, but the arctic cooler was being reused.

                                                                              Currently installing windows 10 updates along w/ chipset, device, and graphics drivers.

                                                                              It also looks frigan awesome! Highly recommend the DIY Q-Bert case.

                                                                              Will post pics sometime tomorrow.
